At the heart of our work is an holistic approach aimed at building skills and maintaining a balanced canine-human partnership, through a comprehensive understanding of dogs’ behaviour, psychology and communication.
Our broad programme of short or longer in-depth courses, applied workshops and holidays cater for dog owners and professionals alike. In addition we offer hands-on, tailor-made behavioural and practical sessions for anyone wishing to become more skilled at handling or working with their dog on a one-to-one or small group basis.
Each dog deserves to be understood. Sharing two-way communication through awareness and appropriate response to canine body language, along with understanding canine behaviour and psychology, will help dog and owner build a deeper relationship based on mutual trust and respect.
However much we may love our dogs, from time to time problems can arise. This may be due to a wide variety of reasons ranging from health issues to traumatic past experiences. Some dogs may develop issues related to “aggression”, socialisation or separation, or may be struggling in their environment with fear, insecurity, stress or hyperactivity. Whatever the case, we offer practical guidance and support for the specific needs of each individual, dog and owner alike.
