Training

Our sister company Paws Positive Dog Training is the kind and gentle way to train dogs.
 We are fetching a new and exciting way of training to this area where we use games to build concepts which shape the personality of the dog, so we end up with solving real life struggles and turning them into strengths, rather than just teaching sit, down,stay etc.

She is a  ADTB Qualified and approved instructor and behaviourist , a member of Sarah Whiteheads inner circle and a full member of Dr Ian Dunbar’s all access pass group. Although Amanda trains all aspects of dog training she specialises in children and dogs and puppies from 8 weeks of age. 
The main reason for dogs being taken to shelters or even worse euthanized is bad behaviour but many of the reported problems are normal behaviours for dog’s especially young ones. Many dog owners don’t know or don’t remember what is normal for a puppy. The problem isn’t always with the dog it’s with the owner’s expectations. The most commonly reported problems were house breaking problems, hyperactivity, barking, biting, chewing when the owner was away and fearfulness.  Except for biting the behaviors should be expected from dogs but even with biting some owners confuse biting with mouthing. Amanda wanted to help these dogs so embarked on a training career to help stop at least some of these dogs been taken to shelters.
Seeing a dog progress and respond to positive training is a very rewarding experience. Paws Positive Dog Training main aim is to help dogs and owners create a bond that will Last a lifetime by giving owners the tools to eliminate the bad behaviors with positive effective and easy to understand training techniques. Making it fun for all too
A trained dog is a happy dog and a trained dog means a happy owner.

Puppy socialisation classes
For the first few weeks of life puppies learn very quickly good things as well as bad. Early socialisation is extremely important factor to ensure you have a well-adjusted adult dog. The socialisation window closes at about 16-20 weeks of age depending on the breed of the dog A puppy need to learn to adapt and get use to adults, children other dogs and cats as well as everyday noises from traffic, parks, town centres and household appliances.
A puppy socialisation session is for the puppies and their owners to socialise with other puppies and people while aiming to keep the puppies calm so they don’t learn to become over stimulated by them.

Behaviour problems
Some behavioural problems can be caused by an illness or injury so we would ask you to take your dog for a vet check before we start to work with you to rule anything medical out.
We will come to your home as that where the problems arise and the initial consultation will be 2-2.5 hours, some problems can be discussed in just the consultation but some may need 1 or 2 further 1-1.5 hour sessions. We also include a detailed training plan to keep you on track with your training. And you have unlimited email access.
Dogs can develop a range of behavioural problems such as destructiveness, separation anxiety, fearfulness, inappropriate toileting, fear of cars, excessive barking, possessiveness and phobias. We can work with you to identify the root cause of the problem and using kind scientific methods draw up a plan to eradicate the undesirable behaviour.
All these plans and packages are tailored to yourself and your dog so please contact us to speak further.
