Helping you build a fantastic relationship with your dog.

I am a positive reinforcement dog trainer and behaviourist.

I have worked with traumatised and shut down rescue dogs for many years. Rehabilitating them to become 

happy pet dogs.

I only use scientifically proven, force free methods. I have years of experience in running puppy and dog training classes, creating a relaxed and welcoming environment.

I am well qualified and work with reactive dogs that show aggression and fear towards other dogs and people, very scared dogs, those with separation anxiety and many other behavioural problems.

I have 14 dogs of my own, 11 of which are rescues. I am based in Bridgend and also cover the Cardiff and Swansea areas.

I also own and run a foster based dog rescue called Barney's Small Breed Rescue.

Reactive Dog assessments and training.

Full assessment of reactive dogs,that show aggression towards humans and/or other dogs. A full assessment / training plan and ongoing support given. 

It can be incredibly stressful owning a reactive dog and can feel quite isolating. I build confidence in the owners management and abilities whilst a full behaviour training programme is put into place. 

All size and breed of dogs can become reactive for a variety of reasons.

My facilities include a converted training barn and two large fields, your dog can work in a controlled environment around my trained stooge dog, when ready.

Initial assessment and behaviour plan.

Package costs, £165  

To include 

- a minimum 2 hour 121 assessment either at your own home or here at Gentle Paws.

- A follow up appointment 1 hour.

- message/email support between appointments.

- A training plan with practical help.

 - alternatively a single 2 hour behavioural consultation and training plan is £125

Bespoke packages available once assessed.

An assessment gives me the opportunity to look at the emotions that are driving your dogs behaviour. Getting as much history as possible and gaining knowledge of previous behaviour, I can support both you and your dog moving forward. Many people feel that they need more practical support with dog to dog/reactivity, something which I feel is a huge help to the owners confidence and helping the dog become less reactive.
