Will my dog's recall improve? We can absolutely work on recall during training walks however it is important to understand the role that the relationship between you and your dog plays in a reliable recall. To improve recall we recomend carrying Obedience Training sessions. Please feel free to get in touch for more info!

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 every dog. The ultimate goal is to empower owners with the knowledge and techniques necessary not only to train their current dog but also to sustain a lifetime of successful dog ownership.

Dog Behaviourist Edinburgh
"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."
