Aggression in any form is serious, owning a dog which bites has serious  implications not only for the dog but for the owner too, with current dog laws owners have a legal responsibility to have their dogs safely under control at all times especially when in public.

As owners we need to be aware of what are dogs are doing at all times especially when out on a walk in public places but also in the dogs familiar surroundings of the home too.

In today’s society behaviours such as barking, mouthing, nipping and especially biting are all unacceptable. Although these behaviours are part of canine language all are however unacceptable towards people.

We must communicate to the dog through training what we expect from our dog and in doing so teaching good manners in every situation and environment


After the initial contact a questionnaire will be sent as to begin to build a picture of the dog’s behaviours. This must be returned prior to visit.

Behaviour consultations are generally conducted within the client’s home environment, in doing so this help to build a clear picture of the unwanted behaviour in the dogs familiar surroundings.

Within the dogs natural environment the dog will be observed in action as enable rob to observe the dogs response to the stimuli. In certain cases behaviour modification programs maybe be sent up to 2 weeks prior to the visit so the dogs behaviour can addressed before the any formal training begins.


To enable the client to manage their dog and allow the retraining of the unwanted behaviour, a detailed explanation of dog psychology and how dogs learn will be given with relevance to the problem behaviour then hands on practical work will also be conducted giving the handler the knowledge and techniques to aid them in modifying their dog’s behaviour


The consultation lasts around 2 -3 hours after which a detailed report is sent to the client detailing the cause of the problem and behaviour modification techniques along with other relevant programs.
