Dog training advice

Welcoming a rescue dog into your home involves a period of transition as they adjust to their new life. Training can be really beneficial in helping them to settle in well and build a bond with you.

Hiring Help

If you need help with training and behavioural issues then we highly recommend employing the services of a qualified trainer and behaviourist.

It’s really important to ensure they are qualified to deal with the issues you need support with and that they only use force-free, scientific methods.

Locally to ourselves, we recommend Gemma Ibbotson of Positive Paws Training  You can find qualified and ethical behaviourists local to you here.

Dogs Trust also have a behaviour support line, which is a free telephone service open Monday to Saturday, 9.30am – 5pm. Click the button below for more information.
