Special training needs and behaviour issues
Are you at your wits end? Is your dog lunging at people or other dogs? Or is he full of fears? Have you been told your dog is "untrainable"?
Aggressive, fearful and "stubborn" dogs alike benefit hugely from a positive approach to changing their behaviour.
A second chance
Congratulations on having the courage of taking on a dog in need of a new home! Rescued dogs pose different challenges to puppies. They come with their own often unknown history, are usually not trained and may have particular fears or even aggressive tendencies that may not be evident during the adoption process. A positive training approach is a fantastic way of helping your dog settle into his new forever-home.

"My Ellie is a rescue dog who had been mistreated and was aggressive. Daniela has worked hard with Ellie (and me!) to improve her behaviour. Daniela has given me plenty of techniques and advice to manage situations where she can become fearful and aggressive. This means that I can now take Ellie on walks with confidence, knowing that I have the tools to cope in a variety of situations.
Daniela is a wonderful, professional, caring and very competent trainer. Her continued support and follow-up is great."
My dog journey started with Jessie, a small white fluffball bichon-schnauzer cross. She was trained the traditional way by choke collar and verbal praise. After she died, Giro, my Smooth Collie, taught me how wrong this approach was, and introduced me to the fascinating world of positive dog training. Kiara, my whippet, reaped all the benefits, and can't wait for her training all day, every day!
