Are you stressed & frustrated with your dog's behaviour?
Then you're in the right place!
Do you get embarrassed by your dog's barking, lunging, and growling at dogs or other people?
Are you confused by your puppy's constant biting & now they've started growling at you, too?
Do you feel like a failure because your dog growls or snaps when you try to take something from them?
Confused by the conflicting advice out there and looking for reliable ways of resolving their issues?
Sometimes, our dreams of a new best friend are crushed by their behaviour, leaving us feeling frustrated, lonely and questioning if we're even the right home for them...
BUT there is hope!
I've Been Where You Are Today!
For as long as I can remember, dogs have been a huge part of my life.
In April 2016, I adopted Jasper. Being single at the time, I spent every spare minute training him and building his confidence to become the well-rounded, lovable rogue he was known as. He's getting on now, and struggles with arthritis, so we can't do as much as we used to.
When I met my partner, we decided to find a 2nd dog to join our family.
After a long search, we adopted Freya in early 2019. The vision was for us all to live peacefully, enjoying long walks in the country or a sunny afternoon in a beer garden etc.... This did not happen!
We would get red-faced just leaving the house as she barked and lunged at other dogs. At 50kg, it wasn't easy to just stay upright sometimes!
We followed so-called 'expert' advice, but nothing seemed to help.
Most of it based around the use of fear, pain and intimidation. 'jerk her lead'... 'spray her with water'... 'make sure she knows you are boss'... 'don't let her rule you'... (Sound familiar??)
Even hiring a behaviourist didn't work.
It seemed like the universe was trying to tell us we just weren’t the right home for her. It was hard to shake the feeling of failing her.
But, being a determined woman, I took matters into my own hands and went on an extremely intensive learning journey... I got educated in kind methods of behaviour modification that actually work, gained hands-on experience, and changed our lives forever.
My partner and I no longer stress about Freya's behaviour. We can actually enjoy walking her now. We spend quality time as a family without feeling tense, and Freya is 1000 times calmer & more confident in every way.
Let me assure you that it does get better with the right support & commitment.
Freya has since helped teach countless dogs in ways that we humans just aren't able to!
I've been lucky enough to learn directly from some of the world's most renowned dog trainers & behaviourists in order to hone my skills and knowledge.
This has enabled me to develop my own unique framework, of truly powerful tactics for overcoming challenging behaviour. I now dedicate my life to transforming other dog's and their owners' lives to be more peaceful and much more enjoyable, together.
Our journey started from the comfort of our own home and I can show you how to help solve and prevent your own dog's behaviour issues, too.
We can't wait to meet you!
Charlotte, Freya and Jasper
