Sociable Dog

(no reviews)


We’re specialists in training dogs with fear or aggression problems. We can help your troubled soul become a more confident, sociable dog. And that opens up the world for you both Our approach is positive and patient. No drama. No lectures. Just practical help, sound knowledge and plenty of understanding and good humour.

How we work

No matter how much you love your dog, dealing with fear and aggression is exhausting and frustrating. At times, it can be embarrassing;  sometimes downright worrying and isolating.

This is how we help:

MANAGE: Our first step is to calm everything down. We’ll show you how to be safe, cool and in control while we work on the problem together. We might recommend some kit like haltis, harnesses or muzzles to help. We never work with shock, spray, choke or prong collars. Why not?

ASSESS: What’s at the root of the problem? We have straightforward, reliable ways to work out whether your dog’s behaviour is caused by fear, frustration or is one of the other less common problems.  We’ll talk to you about your daily schedule and what your priorities are so that we can build a programme that’s ‘do-able’ for you.

PLAN:  The route to success. We’ll put together a training plan for you and your dog and coach you in timing and technique. Fear-based problems do call for patience, but you can get there and we’ll be on hand to support.

Our training plans are simple, straightforward and step-by-step, giving you clear information about the kit and help you need and what to do. Here’s a few pages from one of our plans so you can get the idea.
