Due to the growing number of requests for help outwith Central Scotland I am now able to offer a telephone advice service. This is NOT suitable for aggression towards people.
If you would like to use the telephone advice please send an email to email@example.com. I will email you a comprehensive questionnaire to be completed and returned. We will then arrange a mutually convenient time for the call. If you have access to skype, this also can be used. At the time of booking the time slot you will be asked to pay £20 (UK only) via paypal.
Following the advice call I will email you a written behaviour plan so that you don't need to memorise the information. You will have ongoing telephone/email support.
Good article on why pet owners should treat their dogs for parasites. - link
Link to a very informative website about why we should not use training techniques that induce fear or pain - Welfare in Dog Training
Please contact me if you currently use a prong or choke collar. Hand it in to me and I will give you a free one to one session to get your dog to walk nicely on lead.

Dogs become infected with lungworm after eating common garden slugs and snails carrying the larvae. An infected dog may have breathing difficulties, be lethargic and cough. Other signs include weight loss, fits, reduced appetite, vomiting, diarrhoea, weakness, paralysis and persistent bleeding from minor cuts.
Sarah Wright, editor of Your Dog magazine, said: "While lungworm poses a real risk to all dogs, it can be easily treated if caught early enough and with new advances in veterinary medicine, even prevented. With the increasing number of reported incidents, it is more important than ever before that owners are aware of the signs to look out for."
