Dogs are not toys
A dog is a living animal and requires all the love and care that you
would give to a child. When you take
on a dog there is a responsibility that goes with it. Dogs do not look
They may be expensive. There is a range of costs that they can incur:
feeding, vet bills, regular inoculations, general health and any
accidents/illnesses that might befall your dog. They also need someone to stay with them when
you are away and you may have to pay for this.
They need time: walking (don't expect dogs to take themselves for a walk),
training so that you can control them, grooming, cleaning up after them!
They need company so it is important that you are able to spend time with
them during the day. Dogs are pack animals and they look to you to be the
leader of the pack. If you do not give them enough attention (walking,
training, grooming, feeding) they may try to take over as pack leader and
become aggressive and uncontrollable.

Problems with your Dog?
Ever had the feeling that your precious dog is doing just as
it wants rather than what you want it to do?
Let me show you how to be the pack leader so that you will be
confident with the knowledge that you can both control and
protect your dog.
Your dog needs to fit in with your lifestyle. This starts with
the rules of the home just like you would with children, and
then there are rules for how to behave outside.
I can guarantee that you and your dog will both become
more relaxed and gain more enjoyment from your time together.
Please phone me to discuss your problems and using my
experience I will do my best to help. Usually two training sessions
are sufficient to change the behaviour pattern of you and your dog.
