ABOUT ME & HOW I THINK

I'm Anna, the owner of Perfect Pawz! Training & Behaviour Practice - it's me you'll see for all aspects of training & behavioural help.  I want to give you the very best possible service - I care that your pet's issues are resolved, it's a dedicated and assured level of commitment.

I  create and restore a happy dog - owner relationship in a way that's fun, relaxed and informal, involving lots of praise, play, pats and fun.

 

Improving your dog's behaviour isn't about bullying, physical domination or using painful devices - those days are long gone, although sadly there's still plenty of 'trainers' using such methods & that's so sad - who wants to force a dog into submission or 'make' a dog comply, I certainly don't.  For me, nothing is better than watching dogs learn because it's fun and enjoyable to do so.  We've got to learn to listen to and respect our dogs as partners in a relationship & that's what I'm about.

ME & MY DOGS...

Well, we are a Labrador family through & through, I just absolutely love them.  If you've got one, then you're in extra specially good hands because they are 'my breed'.  Labrador Retrievers are beautiful dogs but many owners do struggle with their temperament which is sad & I do find it a little frustrating sometimes because Labradors are extremely bouncy & exuberant when young but do so want to please & this can often lead into a battle of wills with their person - you've just got to be understanding and patient. 

 

My Labradors are very much family pets but I do very much enjoy showing them & we have been lucky to have achieved an enormous amount of success, the highest accolade of course is multiple Crufts qualifications & the chance to show on that famous green carpet most recently with our amazing boy Millroseglen Bona Fide.  They are of course equally happen to plodge in muddy puddles & swim in the nearest river!
