Common Behaviour Struggles

Helping fearful anxious dogs become calm confident canines.

Dog Reactivity


Turn your fearful or frustrated dog into a friendly unflappable pooch.

Does your dog bark, lunge or growl at other dogs making your walks a nightmare?
It’s frustrating, distressing, even embarrassing when your dog behaves like that every time they see a dog.
I see many, many dogs who aren’t comfortable around other dogs, they are frightened and just want the dog to go away.
Some dogs can bark out of sheer frustration on lead because they want to go say hello.

Whatever the reason my crazy to calm programme has been specifically designed for dogs who are reactive to other dogs and it will help them become calmer, more confident and more relaxed.

Traffic Reactivity


Does your dog lunge towards passing cars, buses, wagons? Or bark, growl or hide making your walks really difficult for you both?
It’s frustrating, distressing and dangerous when your dog behaves like that every time a vehicle goes by.

Usually its fear driving the behaviour, occasionally prey drive wanting to chase (Border Collies can be prone to this behaviour).

Whatever the reason my chaos to calm programme will help your dog who is reactive to traffic and it will help him become calmer, more confident and more relaxed on his walks.

Fearful New Rescue


Some dogs from rescue find it really hard to adjust to their new home and family.

Brought into to a totally alien environment, they can be scared, hiding or showing teeth when you try and give them the love and care you want to show them.

We need to slowly, slowly teach him that you are his friend and not something to be feared.

Fear of Strangers


Does your dog snap, growl or lunge when people approach or try and stroke your dog and you feel like you are constantly apologising for his behaviour?

Some people think they can touch or stroke your dog without asking first – and then they give you a hard time when your dog reacts badly to it.

Some dogs  aren’t comfortable around people they don’t know, whether that is because of lack of socialisation as a puppy, previous bad experience or genetics.

My snappy to sociable programme will help your dog become more confident and relaxed around people.

Fear of Visitors


Does your dog growl, hide or even bite when people visit your home?

Are you constantly on edge when you have company at home because your dog is aggressive towards visitors and all your friends have stopped coming round.

Some dogs may be terrified and hide becaause they aren’t comfortable around people they don’t know in their home.

My stranger danger programme will help your dog become more comfortable with visitors.

Anxious & Nervous


Some dogs have generalised anxiety, they get spooked easily, they are nervous of everything that is new or not known to them.

This can be genetic, due to a bad start in life, lack of socialisation or some really scary experiences they didn’t bounce back from.

I want your dog to be an optimistic ‘cup half full’ kind of dog not a dog who has the weight of the world on his shoulders.

This type of dog needs gentle confidence building, desensitising and some fun!

Resource Guarding


Living with a Jekyll and Hyde dog is hard, a usually loving and wonderful family dog turns into an aggressive, fierce Tasmanian devil around whatever it is they feel the need to protect.
Dogs guard all kinds of things for all kinds of reasons. The most common are guarding food items or those precious prizes they have stolen and taken under a table where they will growl at you if you approach, but they can also guard  toys, people or places.

My programme will help you Banish Mr Hyde for good.

Separation Anxiety


Do you feel awful leaving your dog alone because you know it distresses him?

Some of the signs your dog may be distressed at being alone:
barking, whining or howling
Chewing, scratching, destroying things
Preventing owner leaving the house
Self mutilation (excessive licking, chewing)

Dogs can develop this for all kinds of reasons, some dogs (and some breeds) are more prone to it than others. This isn’t anxiety, it is sheer panic and is so distressing for dogs and owners too and I have a programme that will help your dog be much happier to be left alone.
