I am a qualified Canine Behaviourist and Dog Trainer, covering all of Lanarkshire, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dumfries and Galloway, Borders, Ayrshire, Fife, Perth and the Lothians.
I also help Pet Fostering Service Scotland as a volunteer and I have four rescue dogs of my own and have worked with dogs for over 25 years. I have a great deal of experience with all breeds.
I have also been asked to provide an assessment for court purposes as an expert witness.

I use positive reinforcement methods and motivational training, providing the owner with effective management and control skills. I undertake veterinary referrals as the cost of the service can often be claimed through the owners pet insurance. I do NOT use cruel or harsh methods. I believe in relationship training and being aware of what the dog is saying to us through it's body language.
The key to changing a dogs unwanted behaviour is to look at what the dog is getting out of the behaviour - what reward does he get? Once we know this we are halfway to changing the behaviour.
