At Cheshire Dog Services, emphasis is placed on modification of the dog’s behaviour through non-coercive and non-aversive methods. While basic training is a component of any behaviour modification program, it is likely you require assistance in devising a course of action that will help you and your dog successfully overcome any problems that arise during your dogs’ lifetime. Plenty of the problem behaviours that dogs’ develop can be a result of an owner’s misunderstanding of their dogs’ behaviour and can make matters worse when responding in an inappropriate way.
Harsh methods can deteriorate your relationship with your dog and build distrust on both sides so using aggression to cure aggression does not work. Many nuisance behaviours or aggression problems are often very normal dog behaviours, therefore using harsh or aversive tactics to remove these undesirable actions are unwarranted and only delay in “fixing” the problem in the first place. Helping you understand dog psychology can give you the foundation to a happier life together!

We would normally like to carry out at least one follow up visit and will provide you with a written report too.
