  • Separation related behaviour
  • Noise sensitivity
  • Resource guarding

    Behavioural consultations take place in your home at a time to suit you and your family. The initial discussion we help you to map out a plan which will be discussed on an individual basis as every situation is different.

    ALL aspects of both you and your dog’s day to day life are taken into consideration from their behaviour, to what they eat, to the way they move, sleep, play and routine.
    Working with a sound knowledge of the inner structures and systems of the dog, we understand the impact that emotional and physical health may have on a dog’s behaviour. Everything is connected, and that is why we conduct a full assessment when working with you & your dog.

    What Our Clients Have To Say

    Thank you Sonya for sharing your fabulous knowledge, the simple steps for training our pups. I'm so glad we found you. The one to one session was amazingly simple but so fantastic to watch and to put into practice. The lads don't realise that they are being trained, to them it's fun and for me too. I'm so pleased with their progress in such a short time. The 'come' command has been so invaluable while walking them on the lanes. It keeps them safe in an instant. Very one that meets them on their adventures, whether in the park or in a cafe they all comment how polite little puppies they both are! Thank you xxxx

    Sonya come round on short notice to give advice and help me understand my new troublesome rescue bulldog a bit more. She had a positive impact straight away with him herself and then give me some pointers and help to do it myself. Noticed a difference in the first day. Will be having more sessions soon. Would recommend.

    Sonia helped me with my dogs barking in my garden. Within the first session I saw a change in his behaviour. Sonia was very reassuring and supportive for both me and buddy. Nothing ever seems too much trouble. I would highly recommend Sonia to everyone! Thankyou again!
