Dog Trainer


Is your small dog causing BIG problems?

Do you dread your daily walk because your small dog won't stop barking?

Do you feel upset because you don't know why your dog is biting, growling or nipping around your other dogs or family members?

Are you frustrated because your adolescent dog ignores everything you say?

Do you look at other dog owners with envy wishing for the same stress free walks they seem to be enjoying?

A small dog should have been easier to take anywhere right? You probably had dreams of peaceful New Forest walks, strolls along the beach and relaxing pub visits. But instead you've found yourself leaving your dog at home because it's just too stressful, for them and you, especially in summer when the New Forest is busy with visitors.

It's frustrating when others dismiss your little dog's stress as small dog syndrome and upsetting when people assume that you haven't done any dog training. 

When I first adopted our rescue terrier Hope, she barked at literally everything, lunged at traffic and had little tolerance for handling, it was hard to know where to start. But with teaching, patience and understanding she's become confident, affectionate and a joy to spend time with.

And that's the key. It's not just about training, it's about understanding the reasons for the behaviour. Small dogs are often misunderstood resulting in training advice and solutions which don't last or can even make things worse.

I'll help you understand what your dog is telling you.  I'll show you how to train in a way that makes sense to your dog and you. I'll help you start enjoying your walks and your dog again. Book a free 20 minute discovery call to find out how I can help you.
