How I can help:
On the Two Day Intensive Training course, I will be training you to train your dog! These courses are just as successful as Residential Training with MOST dogs!Many of the issues that owners have with their dog, is a lack of respect for them, & their dog thinking that he is in charge. This state of mind can not be changed by simply sending your dog away for training. You need to be a part of it.
So, why send your dog away for 2-4 weeks, when in most cases you can see the same results in two days! I have had 1000s of success stories.
I will help you to build your confidence again, in situations, that in the past have made you feel uneasy or anxious. Once a dog picks up on this energy, he very quickly feels the need to protect himself and you, he feels that you have lost control and doesn't see you as 'Pack Leader' So in many cases he will exhibit what appears to be aggressive behaviour.
Fortunately, most of this behaviour is 'learned' and we can change this quite easily in most cases. The course will teach him to ignore what is going on around them, and focus on you.
It is such a successful alternative to Residential Training, and it also means that you don’t have to be parted from your dog for weeks on end!
The results can be astounding! Dogs will change very quickly if they are given the correct guidance which consists of new rules and boundaries, which are simple and easy to follow. There is nothing harsh about my training techniques.
The two day training courses are super successful for 98 percent of the dogs that have already attended, but it's about you the owner continuing the training when you return home. You have to remember that your dog is a dog! Consistency and repetition help your dog to become much calmer and well mannered and a pleasure to be around.
I can teach you about my leadership style and explain why you must project calm-assertive energy.
I'll explain why it’s important to be the “pack leader” while teaching you the skills required to set solid rules, boundaries and limitations for your dog.
You will also see how happy and calm my well balanced pack are and how I can take them all into any situation, ie busy country park, tearoom, pub, busy town/city, camping or in a BnB, hotel or holiday cottage.
I want to enable you to feel confident in taking your dog into all of these situations and more!! I want you to be able to enjoy being with your dog. Not seeing them as a hinderance or embarrassment.
We will concentrate on the issues that affect YOU and your dog.
I want you to go home feeling more confident, more positive about dealing with your dogs behaviour. I want your visit to be an enjoyable experience for both you and your dog. I welcome all family members to join us. During the course, I will use my deep understanding of dog psychology and behaviour to help you tackle problems, including:
Pulling on the lead
Lack of manners
Over the two days, your dog will socialise with my well-balanced pack and learn how to behave around dogs of various shapes, sizes, and breeds.
We will pay a visit to Bradgate Park (which is on my door step). There we will encounter dogs, deer, children, vehicles, cycles, prams etc. We will also visit the tearoom and I will show you how you can do all of this just in two days.
Most of the dogs I deal with daily, suffer from anxiety, show dominant behaviour towards people and other dogs. They can be fearful in new situations. They can also be aggressive towards their owners or people entering into their home. They can show aggressive behaviour towards dogs whilst they are on a lead. Many of these behaviours are more common than what you may think and can be rectified quickly with the correct guidance.
Many of the dogs that I deal with have learnt to live in a state of excitement and I can teach you how to calm them down, so that we can then focus on the real problem. The Two Day Intensive Training Course allows you to build your confidence and teaches Your dog to gain respect for you and his surroundings, during our time with myself and my wonderful balanced pack.
If we feel that your dog should need to join us for a Residential Stay, he or she will be treated like part of the family. I encourage you to bring his own bed, food and treats to make the transition a smooth one. Then she/he is integrated into my pack slowly, without putting too much stress on your dog until he becomes part of the pack.
Worried that your dog’s behaviour is too “bad”?
I've dealt with thousands of aggressive, nervous and ill behaved dogs in the past. All have successfully integrated into my pack without issue. I've got years of experience dealing with every behaviour and most breeds of dog and I've “seen it all” – why not check out my testimonials page to see for yourself?
When we train:
The two-day training course is normally conducted on either:
A Monday and Tuesday, or

Sometimes, with notice, training can be arranged on different days. The course begins at either 8.30am or 9am. Let me know which time you’d prefer when booking. We will train for approximately five hours on the first day and four hours on the second day. We’ll also take a short break on both days.
