Helping You Help Your Dog

We can highly recommend Simon at YES! Dog Behaviour Training.  He helped us so much with calming and training our new rescue dog, who was hyper, anxious and quite a handful.  Simon first came to our house and gave us tips as to how to handle our dog barking at visitors.  This worked almost straight away.  Simon is patient and understanding and his training has had a very positive effect on her.  He’s a natural with animals and our dog loves him. 

He has really helped our dog a lot with her confidence in general with people and other dogs.  Thanks so much Simon!

Questions and Answers

What type of training will you need?

Here are some examples to help point you in the right direction

“My dog barks a lot at home and outside and can be aggressive towards other dogs on a walk”

This comes under Behaviour Solutions, which is where we will view the behaviours in question and demonstrate how to react in the first instance. We will then implement rules and boundaries at home that should start to change the unwanted behaviour for good.

“We have just got a puppy and would like some advice on how best to set up around the house and how to deal with over excitement and separation issues. We would also like to start some basic training – can you help?”

The Puppy Package is the one for you. You’ll get all the advice you need and we’ll do some one-to-one training to give you the tools to train your dog and build a happy relationship with them.

“What package would be best for a generally well-behaved dog who walks nicely on the lead, but once released ignores all commands and won’t come back, especially if there’s another dog?”​

The package for you is Obedience Training which consists of one-to-one training sessions in the environment where you are facing the issues and will work specifically on the problems at hand.

“Our dog is quite obedient but is very nervous out on a walk and also has separation issues at home – what training can help with this?”

The Behaviour Solutions package is the best training for nervousness and separation issues. We will lay the foundations at home to send positive messages, look into what may be contributing to the nervous behaviour and work on a solution together to build confidence going forward.

“We did puppy training and now our puppy is coming up to a year old they are no longer responding to commands, and on top of that, they are over-excited around other dogs. What do we do?”​

This is quite typical behaviour when a dog reaches the stage of adolescence. The puppy training appears to have gone out of the window. But fear not, the training principles should still be there we just need to work on refreshing these commands during this difficult phase. We will do this with the Obedience Training package.

Still unsure?

If you have a mixture of the behaviours above, or you are not sure which kind of training will best suit your needs, then please get in touch and we can come up with a plan for you.
