Behaviour

Do you feel embarrassed by your dog’s behaviour?
Do you dread your walks?
Maybe you avoid having visitors in your home?
Is your dog constantly barking at everyone and everything?

I can help you.

A well-behaved dog might seem like a dream, but with the right approach and attitude (from the human) it’s entirely possible and when you achieve it – a life changer. The relationship between dog and human is a strong bond and when both are in tune with each other, it’s the stuff of Hollywood movies. When they’re misaligned though, it’s more like a Halloween movie!

It doesn’t need to be this way, so if you’re having a difficult time and not enjoying spending time with your dog, I’d like to help. There are so many ways you can help your dog to get over the issues they’re experiencing that are causing the unwelcomed behaviour.

With any behaviour issue I ask that you book your dog in to see your vet before seeing me, this is because there can be a link between medical issues and behaviour issues, for example studies have shown pain is linked to increased noise sensitivity so we need to rule out any health concerns before we address the behaviou

COMMON DOG BEHAVIOUR PROBLEMS INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO, THE FOLLOWING:

  • Anxiety and emotional issues – the cause of lots of unwelcome behaviour, you’ll want to get to the bottom of these for everyone’s sake.
  • Aggression – an aggressive dog is often worrying but it’s also a signal from your dog that something’s not right.
  • Being afraid of people or other dogs – Fearing other people or animals isn’t helpful when you live in a busy world and want to go walking in public places.
  • Barking or whining – Annoying as they can be, these are ways your dog is communicating. It could be down to excitement, anxiety, frustration, or other reasons.
  • Multi-house dog issues. Just like we may struggle to always get along with everyone, your dogs may do too.
  • Noise Sensitivity – You may not hear it, but your dog certainly can
  • Guarding food – Many dogs will become aggressive and anxious around food and this can lead to other problems too.
  • Separation anxiety – Dogs can become disruptive or destructive when left alone.
  • Toileting indoors – The reason needs to be identified, your dog isn’t doing this on purpose.
Remember that you’re investing in the outcome of a happy and peaceful relationship with man’s best friend. I’ve never had a client tell me it’s not worth it! I only take on new clients who show commitment to receive ongoing support as behaviour is not something you can fix overnight. I see my best results through this way of training.

 

Let’s have a call so I can find out more about your issues and see whether we’re a good fit. I look forward to hearing from you.
“Our pup, Red, was very nervous; afraid of people, cars, other dogs, and being first time dog owners we were very concerned with how to manage/improve the situation. I got in touch with Hannah, and after an initial chat, we had a consultation and booked in for the first months work. We spent two months working with Hannah, and it’s been fantastic. She is knowledgable, patient, professional and friendly. Red is like a different dog, Hannah’s behavioural programmes and training exercises worked brilliantly. Red is now a confident, happy pup, excited to meet new people and play with other dogs, and working well on his obedience skills and loose lead walking. We still have some work to do, but thanks to Hannah’s expertise and support, we’re ready to work and feel comfortable progressing with Red. Very happy parents!! We all highly recommend” MARY ELIZABETH
“it has been around 7 months since we found Hannah….. and what a find she was! Our then 10month old cocker spaniel brothers were, i thought, naughty and out of control, and we had started to question our abilities as dog owners. After meeting with Hannah she explained to us that the behaviour our boys were displaying was actually due to fear and anxiety, especially around other dogs. She helped us to identify the cause of their ‘trauma’ and explained the methods and lifestyle changes we needed to introduce to help our babies be happier. 7 months ago Buddy would completely lose his mind at the sight of a dog more than 2 football pitches away……. now he walks around the park off his lead paying very little attention to dogs just feet away!!! We have so many more challenges to overcome but thanks to Hannah we have already achieved so much. I feel like she has fixed parts of us that were broken and given us the confidence as owners that i never thought we would have”HELEN GOBSILL
“I can’t recommend Hannah enough. She has helped to change the dynamics in our household and improve Vivis life. If you have a nervous dog and need support Hannah is the person you need. Thank you Hannah from the bottom of our heart for everything you have done for Vivi and us”  EWA FIELD
“Hannah is amazing! Chester can’t cope being alone and Hannah has taught us so many amazing positive ways to help Chester feel more confident being alone. It’s not a quick thing to teach but it really works and he’s becoming more confident each week! Thank you!!” JOANNE POLAND

“Hannah has been great with our lovely northern Inuit Luther. She been teaching us loads of new techniques to manage his enthusiasm and get us to bond with him even more. Our walks are a lot more fun after following her training. She’s ever so calm and understanding. Our sessions have been brilliant and we look forward to carrying on with our training with her” MARIAN PUEYO
“After getting a puppy we decided to invest in some training to help us get some basic commands under our belt & to build on. Just 3 sessions in, it’s been amazing to see our little Dexter sitting and doing recall on command and with distractions. The hints & tips that Hannah gives us are fabulous and wonderful to see working, thanks Hannah”ANGE BUNN
