Living with a dog that behaves in a way that can cause distress, embarrassment, discomfort, fear, anxiety and overwhelm can take its toll on our own and our dogs well-being.
Getting help as soon as the behaviours start is really important to prevent, manage and improve the behaviour and preserving or rebuilding a relationship that is safe and based on trust and confidence.
Seeking opinions on social media, other pet dog owners or unqualified dog trainers/behaviour practitioners can result in getting outdated, outmoded information that at best can be ineffective and inappropriate and at worse can result in serious risk to owner, dog and others.
If you are serious about getting professional, up to date and non-invasive support, investing time to learn what your individual dog needs and implementing a strategy that your dog will benefit from, these programmes are for you.
I offer programmes because one off sessions cannot do dogs or owners justice in providing the support and commitment necessary to realise the benefits of a better life with their dogs. Can we change to – One off sessions rarely work well or do justice in providing the support and commitment necessary to make progress and enjoy the benefits of a better quality of life.
Bespoke Behaviour Programmes

Puppy Education Programme
Having experienced the significant benefits to puppy’s confidence and well-being by teaching real life skills I have moved away from the standard, traditional obedience, command-based classes. You and your puppy get individual support and you receive bespoke, tailored reference notes, video analysis and additional resources that can be accessed beyond the end of the programme. This bespoke education programme is especially suitable for nervous or anxious puppies.
Puppies and puppy parents deserve the best education and support for success, to avoid the pitfalls and stress of puppy care giving.
If you are serious about your puppy’s education and well-being and you are committed to learning what a puppy needs for a good quality life to co-habit in harmony and you are serious about turning your learning into action this programme is for you.
The programme is dynamic and flexible to accommodate individual needs, and learning styles. The focus is on facilitating and coaching rather than instructing so that both puppy and care giver can develop skills for life-long learning. The investment for this programme is from £250.
Book With Me
Dawn ‘gets dogs’ completely and is a very friendly lady. Highly recommended.
Our reactive dog is so much better to walk now. He is able to move on regardless of what he sees. We actually managed to pass another dog on a country lane.
Dawn’s gentle, kind approach helped me with my unruly dog.
Dawn has helped us understand our pooch much more clearly! We were dealing with separation issues and she really took the time to listen to us, understand our lifestyle and made suggestions that really ‘fit’ for us. Thank you, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you, or to use you again if we needed more help.
Bruno pulls like a train! Dawn showed me techniques on loose lead walking. Both myself and Bruno thoroughly enjoyed the session and learnt new skills. Thank you Dawn
Thank you so much, it was a revelation to be honest, explaining how our dog works. Having a new rescue dog was somewhat overwhelming, you unravelled it all simply and in a non patronising way.
