If you are familiar with TV shows such as "it's me or the Dog" and can see behavioural issues in your own dog or dogs that have been highlighted in these shows then Problem Dog can help you. Although the saying goes that "a dog is a man's best friend" the fact is that if you have a dog in your household then they are a part of your family and as such you are in a relationship with them. As we know relationships can and do go wrong.
The services I offer tackle negative dog behaviour to balance that relationship putting you in a loving, though assertive, position.
I can offer dog behaviour services for both pups and older dogs. I must stress that the services I offer are not designed to add tricks or basic obedience routines to your canines repertoire but to highlight what issues cause negative behaviour and working out a resolution to any issues found through an in depth assessment on our first appointment.
