What areas do you cover?... There is no limitation placed on the distance travelled for consultaion however travel charges do apply. for those seeking help from further afield, we also offer online consultations via Zoom or Skype.

Do you work with aggressive dogs?... Absolutely! Aggression is one of the most common probelm behaviours we deal with, however you will require our Behaviour Consultation service for treatment of aggressive behaviours.

Is my dog too old to learn?... Definitely not! While older dogs will likely have had longer to develop negative behaviour patterns, therefore requiring more time and work to make changes this certainly does not mean older dogs can't learn and improve obedience.

What training methods do you use? Our approach tailors training methods to match the unique needs, characteristics and current training level of each individual dog. Grounded in scientific principles, our methods prioritise patience and balance to foster a bond built on trust and respect. We embrace flexibility, avoiding rigid adherence to a single methodology, thus ensuring we can effectively provide help for evry dog. The ultimate goal is to empower owners with the knowledge and techniques necessary mot only to train their current dog but also to sustain a lifetime of successful dog ownership. Obedience sessions are designed to be fun and interactive for both dog and owner.

"Can't thank Callum enough with helping our dog who was so scared and anxious regarding going out for walks. Before contacting Callum we tried everything to get her walking outside, including anxiety medication from our vet. 
Callum spent time getting to know our dog and observing her behaviour. We have literally only had two sessions with Callum and our dog is walking again on her lead. We have been provided with advice to carry on the training at home and will have regular contact to see how we are getting on and this is brilliant for us. 
My family can't thank Callum enough for what he has one with our dog."
