  • We don't care for outdated 'mumbo jumbo'.

  • We see your dog as an equal partner who should be respected, not bullied or dominated.  

  • We won't be  using aversives or language such as 'alpha/pack leader/top dog'- irrelevant and discredited.  

  • You will receive current, highly skilled and knowledgeable advice that works and allows your dog to progress in the way you want - happily.

ANNA FRANCESCA BRADLEY MSC BSC (HONS)

 Prov. Clinical & Accredited Animal Behaviourist

All 1 to 1 Behavioural Training is carried out by Anna.  Anna has some of the highest professional credentials in the field of animal behaviour in combination with 16 years experience with over 1700 dogs from over 150 different breeds.  Anna is also a research author, provides behavioural content for BARKS magazine distributed worldwide and is a temperament assessor for WAG North East Friendship Dogs. Full Credentials Here

 

 

 

At a 1 to 1 session, sometimes things are a little tense - you may be worried about how your dog may behave, what may happen etc.  Please don't be.  I always say to owners 'everyone thinks their dog is the worst ever!' & he/she rarely is, but if that's the case, well we'll deal with it!

 

I always try to make everything calm and relaxed because I know in some instances owners are pretty stressed & this transmits to the dog. If we can look for the positive in every situation, however hard that might seem, then that really creates an uplifting first session.  It's great when people say 'I feel better already' after session one - it's a step in the right direction. It's a matter of working closely together, if somethings not working, we'll change it, there's never a one size fits all plan.  Eventually we'll get there.

ALL NATURAL!

All of our behavioural 1 to 1 training is conducted outdoors in the presence of natural distractions. 

 

We could train indoors & doubtless your dog would achieve great results, BUT you're not walking in an indoor, barren environment with no competing distractions are you?  We want to recreate your normal, walking, home situation where the issues happen & get those results in those contexts - that's what we call success 

HERE'S OUR 1 TO 1

BEHAVIOURAL TRAINING OPTIONS!

All of our courses can be easily booked below

Payment implies acceptance of our terms & conditions.  We would like you to read our t&c's &       full 1 to 1 course info fully prior to coming to see us

KENNELLED SOLUTIONS!

Below are some of the most common issues we encounter, so to make it easy for you, we've placed them in a 'ready to help my dog' straight out of the kennel, boxed solution! 

 

Based on our experience, this are the typical number of sessions dogs undertake who visit us for these issues. 

Add on sessions can always be applied for 'determined cases!'

ALL OPTIONS INCLUDE:

  • Handouts Following Sessions Bespoke to Your Dog & Covering All Advice Provided

  • Telephone & Email Support Any Time You Require It During The Duration Of Your Course

* Maximum completion time applies please see t&c's

Walk Nicely On Lead

Address all those painful pulling issues, ouch! Rather than simply addressing the issue with gadgets, learn how to engage with your dog, learn techniques which help him or her to focus and disengage from distractions and understand that walking on a loose lead is far more rewarding than dragging you along.

3 WEEKS *  £120.00

Dog Reactivity Issues

Your dog barks, pulls like crazy,  or appears seemingly very fearful, excited, anxious or aggressive? Firstly understand why your dog is reactive, then learn how to better communicate with each other so that you don't             mis-interpret signals. Obtain a much greater appreciation of canine communication. 

Forced socialization and aversives don't work and will make matters worse - treatment involves altering your dog's emotional response when he or she encounters other dogs.

6 WEEKS*  £199.00

Hey Come Back!

 

Your dog bolts, won't come back from play, totally ignores you or decides rabbits or other furries, smells or distractions are simply too wonderful!

It's a frustrating, but most of the time, entirely normal behaviour just in an inappropriate context! We show you how to teach techniques which build a             'dog-owner glue', lots of focus and eventually a great recall from distractions.

6 WEEKS*  £199.00

WAGGY TAILS TAILORED SOLUTIONS!

Sometimes you just need some advice, someone professional to talk to, cut out all the confusion - no training involved.

 

Or maybe you need a refresher or add-on or two following a course, bark up & we'll book you a session!

1 Single Session Tailored To You & Your Dog's Requirements. Advice, refresher or top-up

WALKIES & TRAIN!

Learning is so much better when it's fun! Well that's good because all of our training is fun anyhow but when you're ready and are keen to step up a gear, why not test out your skills where it matters - distraction overload.  Don't worry, we'll only recommend this when you're dog is ready, but it's a great way to help you both when the time is right.

RESCUE DOG REHAB

DOG REACTIVITY

My eight-month old border collie was barking her head off at dogs, strangers, cats, horses, children... I was losing my mind! Anna helped calm me & explained everything. After a lot of hard work, she no longer lunges & we can walk her without any anxiety or fear. Anna was so supportive - Thanks Anna for your understanding and support! I don't know what I would have done without you

BARKING, PULLING & A FEW MORE!

First time dog owner, searched the internet for help, everyone seemed to have the perfect solution, but it just led to more confusion & the situation getting out of hand - ended up where our dog was out of control, barking & upsetting neighbours, stealing, jumping and no way could I walk him on a lead! I met Anna the day we'd discussed having to re-home him.  Anna was extremely caring & sympathetic, explained how we should move forward and brought every member of my family in for a consistent approach. It's taken time but we're now there with your guidance, thanks so much for helping us keep our boy.

The 'D & D Family

We rescued Roxy from Romania this Summer and have really struggled with integrating her into family life even though we're experienced dog owners - contemplated returning her due to the constant bolting after every distraction, which ended in her running onto railway tracks. Anna was our last resort. Anna was clear at the outset what was involved, what we needed to do & provided us with all the notes we needed. 8 weeks later, I have confidence to let her off lead & I'm ecstatic, thanks so much..& you know I was a sceptic!

Just To Remember...

Behavioural Training 1 to 1 assists dogs with just that - training from a behavioural perspective.  If your dog is suffering with clinical behavioural issues, we will always assist you at our Behaviour Practice.  Please do check with if you are unsure 

OUR METHODS

We never use force, bullying tactics or aversives (spray cans, water, shock, electric, prong collars etc.) these do nothing but add fear, startle or pain.  

 

We never ever have a 'one size fits all' plan for every dog - No dog is ever the same! If you have the knowledge to treat each behavioural issue and understand the motivation behind it, you can carefully craft a successful strategy to solve each issue - fortunately we do.

  

We only use positive and kind methods

Now...We Can't Wait

To Meet You!
