How do I stop my dog from barking at other dogs?

Barking, lunging or growling & making your walks a nightmare?

It’s frustrating, distressing, even embarrassing when your dog behaves like that.

I see many, many dogs who aren’t comfortable around other dogs, they are frightened and just want the dog to go away.

How can I change my behaviour to help my dog?

Dogs read our body language and pick up chemical cues from their people so that that means our moods are “contagious.”

Our dogs are watching us very closely; watching our body language, listening to the sounds we make and the scents we give off.”

How do I stop my dog from being aggressive with strangers?

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

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.

How can I stop my dog growling when I go near his stuff?

Its hard to share your life with a dog who is aggressive to you and family members.

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 they growl at you if you approach, but they can also guard toys, people or places.

Where do I start? everyone told me my boy Bowie was a lost cause. that he was dangerous . that he was beyond help and to put him to sleep. he was just 11 months old. a young male dog struggling with hormones and he began to lash out. he had bitten. attacked 2 dogs. become a dog i no longer recognised . i had to get help. I met many trainers. but then I met kerry. I instantly knew she was different from the rest and that she was going to help us. fast forward 18 months (thanks covid) we now have our boy back. balanced. focused. social. Happy. yes he may have a flare up in the future but I now have all the tools and the confidence to get my boy through it all and I couldn't have done it without kerry. I will be forever grateful for her help, advice, guidance and knowledge for bringing my boy back.

Working with Kerry was great. Really appreciated how she listened and focussed on what was right for our dog and for us. Kerry has helped enormously, guiding us to help Juno overcome her anxiety around traffic. We picked up loads of other tips and fun tricks along the way and now have a happy, relaxed dog.

We will never be able to thank Kerry enough for her magic work on our girl sky. Sky is a rescue dog and she was a dog reactive dog, and I say 'was' because we have seen such significant improvement in her. Sky is so much happier on her walks, and can focus on us instead of dogs now. She still has the odd moment if her distance boundaries are pushed but overall I would say we have 98% reaction free walks. It's made sky happier and it's made us so much more confident in walking her. We never thought she would be able to walk down the same street as another dog without reacting but she's smashing it. This is after meeting the fairy dog mother only three times! sky was also quick to make friends with Kerry, which normally takes a little while especially outside of our home! I could not recommend her to you enough, honestly has worked wonders with our sky.

We have used Kerry on a one to one at home with our beagle puppy. We had only two sessions and couldn’t believe the difference in our young dog’s behaviour. He was a highly stressed,anxious dog with guarding issues and aggressive behaviour. He became much calmer and turned into a loving dog who clearly enjoyed the training too! I had lost my trust in him due to him biting me but since following Kerry’s advice we developed a great bond between us. I can highly recommend Kerry.

We contacted Kerry to help with our rescue dog Ruby who was scared of everthing, but mainly people and also with pulling on the lead. We have successfully been able to walk her calmly after all the help and training. Ruby is like a different dog around people with no lunging or barking any more. We were also able to intergrate Ruby with family members not living in our house. I can not thank Kerry enough for all the hard work and techniques we have learned working with her to help Ruby.

I can't recommend Kerry enough my life was very stressful before the training, my dogs were always barking at something , its made such a difference to my life and my dogs they are a lot calmer happier dogs ,well worth the money

Kerry is a complete Angel and trained us and our difficult dog with patience and care. Thank you very much for all your haed work

Kerry helped us so much with our nervous boy Oaty! He was super nervous of new people, especially in the house and would bark constantly at them. One of the first times Kerry met Oaty, he sat and barked at her for a whole hour and she wasn’t deterred at all. 6 months on and he happily plays and wrestles about with people we introduce him to! He’s grown so much in confidence and we can now happily leave him with dog sitters and new people. It’s relieved so much of our worries and helped both Oaty and us live a happier life together. Couldn’t recommend Kerry more!!
