Behaviour consults are focused on achieving your goals. We will apply the most recent developments in dog behavioral assessment and training to work towards resolving behaviour problems.  Roxy has a degree in Animal Behavior science  from the University of Lincoln and PGCE (qualified teacher status).
We are proud to offer force free, reward based one-to-one dog training, behaviour counselling and therapy throughout Berkshire.  Alongside exemplary qualifications we have built up an outstanding portfolio of the work we do.
We offer a free 30 minute phone discovery session where we discuss your dog’s needs, offer you some initial advice and a chance for you to get to know us.

Expectations

we are very clear with expectations from the initial consult - we dont have a magic wand.  We are very successful at what we do
most behaviour cases have a lifelong management element
 
Our face to face classes and 1-2-1 appointments are currently running with all possible COVID 19 precautions. We kindly request that there is only 1 handler per dog attending meets or agility classes.
