Dog training available in Peterborough and surrounding areas

As a force free dog trainer, you will find no concept of dominance, submission, rank hierarchy and pack theory based training whilst using my services. This traditional method of dog training prevents many dog owners from understanding their dogs and can cause untold misery for both. A dog that is showing 'bad' behaviour should either be redirected or ignored. We can teach our dog to do alternative behaviours, that way we can ask them to perform one instead of what we feel is perceived to be an inappropriate behaviour. This helps the dog to learn what to do and is far better than just getting angry because they're not doing the right thing.

During these private sessions, I will help to train you to train your dog to become a more balance and behaved member of your family, both at home and out in public. Here at Fox N Fables, we use force free science based training to reward your dog for doing something we'd like them to do, whether it be using verbal praise, toys or treats.
Dog training involves having patience, the motivation and also understanding. We can teach our dogs to engage with us by positively reinforcing behaviours we do want with FUN reward based games.

This is a private home visit but we can venture outside in your local area dependent on the training. We would start off with an initial consultation where I can get to know more about you and your dog and have a chat about what we need to work on and how. You would have already had a pre-consultation questionnaire sent to you by email that ideally you would have filled out prior to me coming over. Then I can introduce ways to initially manage the issues (if any) and/or to help you with training. You can then decide if you'd wish to carry on with further sessions to enhance the training received from the initial consultation or if you just want to improve on certain training aspects or perhaps resolve other issues you're having. Maybe you'd like to spend an enjoyable hour with your dog learning some new things to do. After the session, I will send you an email with a summary of what we with through during the session as well as a follow up email a week to 10 days after the visit.

Examples of some of the areas I currently cover are:
● Basic commands, slowly building criteria & duration
● Fun games to help boost your relationship
● Reactivity
● Pulling on the lead
● Lack of recall
● Jumping up
● Excessive Barking
● House training
● Crate training
If you'd really like to teach your dog something completely different, that is equally fun and rewarding and to help establish a even closer bond between you both, I also offer:

● Trick training - Want to teach your dog some cool new tricks that you can show off to your friends and family? Or perhaps you want to create a more close bond with your dog? Or maybe you just want some fun with your canine partner? Whichever the reason, we can help you. I can show you the foundations and stages of teaching your dog some new tricks and then you can continue to practice these at home. In one session, you cannot expect your dog to fully understand a trick as some of these can take weeks, even months to fully understand but I can show you what you need to do. Some tricks are not suitable for young dogs or dogs with physical health issues.
