Are you looking for a Dog Trainer/Instructor or a Dog Behaviourist?

 


Dog Trainers/Instructors – Offer, often in group/class sessions – methods and advice on how to train towards teaching the dog certain actions/behaviours like Sit – Walking to Heel – and Coming Back when Called etc.
Trainers/Instructors often have many years of ‘hands on’ experience and will therefore often be able to help and advise on Behaviour problems and recognise when 1 to 1 help is needed
 
 
Dog Behaviourists – Offer, normally 1 to 1 – methods of modification to change or stop behaviour that is already occurring by looking back at what has or may have caused it.
Many (but not all) Behaviourists have studied ethology and/or cynology at University/Collage level to gain the knowledge and experience to offer modification programs.
 
 
So, although there is differences between the role of the Trainer/Instructor and the Behaviourists the work they do will and does often overlap – so both normally will have an understanding of each others expertise.    

Dogs with what may be considered 'behaviour problems' are seen on Saturdays. Before attending please phone Alan to discuss the problem.

Remember that what you consider a problem may only be so; because of the way you expect your dog should behave or a normal trait of the breed you have chosen.

A dog that has adequate mental and physical exercise is normally happy and contented and will likely spend most of the day resting - not chewing, barking, digging, escaping or destroying things and therefore far less likely to have 'behaviour problems'

For certain and/or sudden changes in behaviour a health check by your vet is advisable before seeking help from a behaviourist
