At All Four Paws, I aim to provide a one-stop, custom-made training experience for all, keeping all four paws on the ground. Includes emergency support.
My name is Ian and I have over 40 years' experience living and working with dogs of all breeds and mixes, and 10 years working with dogs with problems. I use a range of modern, non-aggressive and supportive techniques.
I adhere to the Association of Pet Dog Trainers' code of practice.
I hold an enhanced DBS Check and am fully insured.
Even the most perfect dog can come with problem behaviours, develop them over time or suddenly change or start an unwanted behaviour. These behaviours can sometimes be difficult to resolve without expert help and take time and patience.
I specialise in the rehabilitation of simple and complex behaviour problems, particularly in Rescue Dogs or dogs where behaviour is having an impact on the dog's welfare and family life. I use a range of positive and supportive techniques to enable dogs with difficulties to enjoy a more stable life. Whatever the challenges I am here to help address behaviours such as:
All Behaviour work is non-aggressive and positive based, and I never forget that my subject is your loved one.
Yet there are some situations you cannot love your way out of, and which need time, patience and help from the outside. I use a range of positive techniques ranging from reward-based training, rehabilitation through play, Behaviour Adaption Therapy and Music Therapy, to Dog Whispering, depending on what your dog needs. I tailor training to your dog.
Sometimes it needs an outside eye to take a holistic view of a dog's whole situation, and balance it accordingly. I am an expert in dog body language and communication and am a hands-on trainer. I will work with you and your dog to resolve your problems.
For new dogs, new owners, or old dogs needing to learn new tricks! Whether your dog is a new pup or an older rescue, even the most experienced owners can find each dog comes with its own challenges. I offer help with:
