Every dog is individual, just like their owners, but please see below some examples of the kind of behaviour problems I can help with.
"Jackie has helped us no end with our dog Jessie, who was shadow-chasing and resource guarding. She put practical solutions in place and worked with the whole family to help Jessie become a fun part of the family that we could all enjoy. She's such a personable trainer that genuinely works to make life with a dog easy. Would recommend her to anyone needing support with integrating a dog into family life" - Fiona, Ealing, 2019
Aggression is a serious problem, whether it is towards people or other dogs. To minimise risk of injury, and protect your dog's safety, please do not delay if your dog shows aggressive behaviour; your insurance may cover you for behavioural advice on referral from your vet.
A dog who cannot cope with being left alone can make life miserable for both you and your dog. Professional support and advice is essential to help teach your dog new coping-skills when left alone, thereby improving their welfare and restoring your peace of mind.
There are many reasons why dogs can be destructive in the home. The damage caused is often distressing and costly, and can cause a rift in the relationship between you and your dog. Understanding the underlying cause is essential for successfully changing the behaviour.
Sensitivity to certain noises, especially fireworks, is sadly common, but nonetheless upsetting for you and your dog. Professional advice will greatly improve your chances of successfully managing the problem and reducing the distress that your dog feels.
Fear and Phobias
Fears and phobias can develop for a number of reasons. Unfortunately, they tend not to improve on their own and often often get worse over time. If your dog is fearful or has specific phobias, don't hesitate to seek advice to help make life less scary for your pet.
Tail-chasing, shadow-chasing, or other seemingly compulsive behaviours may indicate that all is not well with your dog. When obsessive grooming is involved, it can also lead to serious self-injury. I can help you identify the underlying cause and address the problem.
