Behavioural Problems

Behavioural issues can include:

  • Dog and human aggression;
  • Separation anxiety;
  • Food/toy guarding;
  • Destructive Behaviour;
  • Chasing Livestock, bikes, joggers

Dogs with behavioural problems are often put up for re-homing as the owners have struggled to cope and have seen no alternative other than to re-home the dog.

We would like to help you and your dog and therefore we do not take a blanket approach to your dog’s issues. Each case is treated on a strictly individual basis and our sessions will be tailored to you and your dog.

We are happy to help with all breeds of dog as an aggressive Chihuahua is no less a problem than an aggressive Mastiff.

We will visit you initially in your home and where possible meet with all members of the household. We cover the whole of South Manchester including Knutsford, Didsbury, Stockport and Hale and will happily travel further afield, previous examples being: Leeds, Rochdale, Buckinghamshire and Essex and even Italy.

It is important to be able to assess the dog’s behaviour at home as quite often by making some simple changes at home and putting some rules in place (that the whole family is consistent with) you will see an improvement in your dog’s behaviour. If you struggle with your dog’s behaviour at home it is highly likely your struggles will be far greater when you take your dog out.

If a dog does not get sufficient exercise, behavioural issues can become more severe. Behavioural issues such as aggression can make providing sufficient exercise a challenge in itself and therefore we will listen to you and provide help, advice and the skills needed to address and correct your dog’s behaviour.

We believe that by providing you with an understanding of your dog’s behaviour you will be better equipped to address and correct the issues you might be experiencing. Your dog’s behaviour might be unruly, unpredictable and undesirable but with our help you can make an undeniable and sometimes an unbelievable improvement!

I would not hesitate to recommend Phil and his dog training methods. The sessions were fun, achieved great results and Phil was always on hand to give advice when needed.

We sought advice from Phil to help us to bring on our young dog. Phil provided us with information and techniques which have helped us to train Freddie to become the friendly, well rounded and lovely dog that he is.
