GET TO KNOW US

For many years we have loved and trained our own dogs, and after lots of hard work and learning we have decided to share our passion and know-how to help owners transform their bond with their dogs.

 

We work using kind, reward based methods designed to harness your dog's potential and help you to enjoy your dog once more! We are extremely passionate about making training fun, enriching our dogs lives and developing a mutually rewarding relationship.

OUR TRAINING IS POWERED BY

SCIENCE

ethics

...and filled with fun!

JAKE BOLAND

RECALL AND ENGAGEMENT SPECIALIST

Jake is passionate about working with difficult dogs. For some, it is easy to adapt, others find training a little boring and will often find their own means of entertainment. Jake taps into our dogs natural desires to bring the fun back to us and create a motivating, engaging and exciting means of communicating and training with our dogs.

 

A number of years ago Jake introduced Crash, a welsh working Border Collie into the family. He was what we refer to as a ‘self-employed’ dog. Even when Jake had a pocket full of treats, Crash would much rather have fun on his own. Through harnessing Crash’s desire to play, chase, and herd, Crash went from a ‘couldn’t care less about you’ kind of dog to a dog that will choose Jake over anything in the environment. He now regularly demos in classes, and shows off the power of reward based training and motivating our dogs. Since then, Jake has been transforming the lives of ‘difficult’ dogs and their owners through these techniques, along with his in depth knowledge of dog training and behaviour this allows him to offer a unique perspective and insight for owners struggling with their dogs.

BEHAVIOUR CONSULTANT & DOG TRAINER- SPECIALISING IN REACTIVITY

 

Jasmin specialises in reactivity, anxiety and aggression. Many dogs displaying these kinds of behaviours are quickly labelled as ‘bad’ dogs, but we know that they are all too often simply misunderstood. She offers a holistic and ethical approach to behaviour modification- addressing the root cause of your dog's issues, making lifestyle changes as well as working on their specific triggers and worries. We are not magicians, we don’t promise quick fixes- but instead a gradual, thorough plan that has a positive, long lasting impact on your dog. As an IMDT accredited trainer, Jasmin follows a strict code of ethics whereby she trains using evidence and science based modern training techniques. These techniques allow our dogs to blossom into happier companions with a new optimistic approach to the outside world. 

 

Being the owner of an anxious dog herself, Jasmin understands the hardship, the frustration and the embarrassment that comes with owning a reactive dog. As an owner, you will receive nothing but empathy, understanding and judgement-free advice. In order to provide ongoing support to reactive dog owners, Jasmin has set up a ‘reactive dog club’ where owners can train their dogs alongside like-minded people and chat with those that ‘get it’. As well as the reactive dog club, Jasmin offers 121 behavioural sessions, and her incredibly popular ‘Confident Canines’ class for sensitive dogs.
