Heather uses Positve, reward-based training; this doesn't just mean stuffing your dog full of treats but is instead based on genuine scientific research which has found that dogs learn best with these humane methods. Dog's learn well with clear boundaries, consistency and clear rewards. This sort of training is brilliant for building the bond between you and your dog which will in turn help you to set appropriate boundaries and rules for your dog. As it works with the dog's natural instincts, it is suitable for any dog, regardless of age or breed; it is simply a matter of finding what motivates your dog and using that to get the results you want!

1-on-1 sessions are extremely beneficial for helping you to work through the issue with your dog, alongside a friendly professional. In some circumstances, Heather can also personally train the dog herself (in the owners home or out on walks) and then show you, the owner, how to maintain the dogs progress.
1-on-1 sessions are an hour long and can be booked individually or in twos or threes: see below for prices.
