Every dog should have a man of his own. There is nothing like a well-behaved person around the house to spread the dog’s blanket for him, or bring him his supper when he comes home man-tired at night. – Corey Ford
When we envisage ourselves with a dog, we all want a pet that will fit effortlessly into our family and will be a companion and friend. Sometimes this isn’t quite what we get, and often, it can be simple miscommunication causing the problems between canine and human.

We can help with a range of issues including recall, house-training, dog aggression, people aggression, nervous aggression, separation anxiety, introducing a new pet to your home and planning for arrival of a new baby.
