Dogs, are you Having Behaviour Problems with Your Owners? Let Me Help You Train Them to Speak Dog.
I am a fulltime, professional Canine Behaviour Advisor and I hold NVQ levels 1,2 and 3 equivalences awarded by OCN in canine psychology, Certificate in Foundational Health from CHC with the first and only distinction to be awarded and accredited by the kennel Club and am currently working on my foundation degree in Advanced Canine Behaviour Management. I am a member of the Institute for Animal Care and Education. I hope later to continue my education in animal behaviour to degree level either at Southampton University or Bishops Burton. I also continue my education by attending relevant seminars, updates and lectures by leading professionals in the field of Cynology. I also hold membership to the British Veterinary Behaviour Association and the Society for Companion Animal Studies.
Here at Canine Rehabilitation I only want the best for your dog and you. We will work together to help you and your dog to resolve any behavioural issues he may have. It’s a sad fact of life that many dogs are written off and either end up in a rescue centre or worse, executed, simply because owners don’t know how to communicate with their canine friends.
Like many other owners did you try dog training classes? Did you read the books and watch DVD’s and the dog whisperer and dog Borstal TV programs telling you that you should be dominating your dog? I can assure you folks your dog is not a Wolf in a dog suit plotting to take over the world in his sleep and although dog training plays a part there is a lot more to behaviour changes that dog training alone can change.
Dogs are highly social animals and unique in the fact that they readily accept humans into their social circle. Problems occur when owners fail to understand their dogs needs or communications to them. Dogs don’t understand spoken language but if you think about it they must have a way of communicating with each other. Believe me they do, they use body language and gestures, a look, a movement of the head and sometimes it’s so subtle if you don’t know what to look for you will miss it. They are also masters at reading body language and can even read people and other animals.
I can help. It’s not as desperate as it may seem I can teach you both to understand what your dog is telling you. I will work with you to fulfil your dogs needs to be just that, a dog, giving you both a happy and rewarding relationship.
I only use kind positive methods with no choke chains or sprays and gismos. I have proven time and time again our methods work with lots of very happy and satisfied customers with testimonials to back up my claim.
If you go to Google and tap in Dog Psychology or Dog Behavioural Problems you will get a whole gamut of web sites with pages and pages of advice, claims, testimonials, pictures of happy dogs and a whole host of letters after names. I have included a sample of my qualifications above but our track record speaks for itself. I will of course, provide testimonials and qualifications upon request if you would like us to work with you and your dog but we just don’t feel the need to waste too much space here with them.
The same applies to advertising. I don’t see the need to waste money on advertising with the ultimate cost being passed on to the client in higher fees, because 90% of my business is from referrals from happy customers and for any business, whether it be plumbing, sales, marketing or in fact any sector of industry or commerce a 90% referral rate is exceptional. Plus you have the added peace of mind of knowing we are dog owners too so we have probably experiences exactly what you are going through right now.
If you are looking to train your dog to a more advanced level such as agility or to a competition level please still get in touch and I will refer you to one of my colleagues who does this type of training or if you are out of my area again I will put you in contact with a colleague in your area.
Mike, as well as being a First Aid Instructor for people is also a Marine Mammal Medic for the British Divers Marine Life Rescue. So when your see divers trying to rescue stranded whales and Dolphins on the coast of the UK, I am one of those qualified to volunteer to help with the rescue.
Our aim is to help as many humans as possible learn to speak dog. It is a fact that most behaviour problems stem from people not knowing what their dog is trying to tell them at a given moment
I am based centrally in the West Midlands and can travel anywhere. Within a 10 mile radius we don’t charge for travel but outside this radius we apply a mileage charge per mile both ways.
Outside my offices I have a large sports field that I can work with dogs in training and free parking for up to 100 cars. All with CCTV monitoring 24 hours a day.
If you are not sure whether you need my services or not call or e-mail me. I am always happy to talk to dog owners and answer their questions and a chat is always free. What you got to lose? If you call me with your number I will even call you back to save you the cost of the call.
I do try to answer all calls and e-mails as soon as humanly possible but, at busy times there may be a short delay in getting back to you. Please be patient as I will return your enquiry as soon as I can. Your dogs well being means a lot to me.
So, how can I help you?
· I will do a visit to assess the situation.
· Then I will draw up a plan of action for us to work on with your dog.
· I Will recommend what ever remedial training your dog needs if any.
· I will continue to help you after the visit with telephone and e-mail backup for the life of your dog.
· If for any reason further visits are required we will discuss this with you at the time of the initial visit.
So what do you get from a visit? A typical visit lasts for two to three hours but I will not be heading for the door after three hours. It takes as long as it takes to help your dog and you feel comfortable with the information and what you both need to be doing. Once I leave the consultation it doesn’t end there. I am always at the end of the phone or you can e-mail me and this service is free for the rest of the dogs life.
I also run course and seminars which include but are not limited to:
· Canine First Responder Course© (First Aid and CPR for dogs).
· Canine First Responder Instructor© Course.
· Clicker Training Workshops for individuals or groups.
· Understanding your dog better workshop.
· I can also arrange a tTouch workshop with a qualified practitioner.
Contact us for details.
Whether we visit you for a behaviour consultation or one to one training what we offer is not a quick fix for the situation with your dog. We will endeavour to give you the best advice and solution to your situation but in most instances, rehabilitation or training is a long term commitment, not unlike owning a dog.
Your dogs training/rehabilitation depends on the owner implementing our advice or continuing with training after we have left. We understand there may be a lot of information to absorb which is why we follow up with a written plan as a point of reference and offer free back up via phone and e-mail or supply you with training notes to refer back to and as all dogs are different we can not give a time scale for training or behaviour issues to be resolved it depends on the co-operation and performance of all parties concerned.
If in doubt call or e-mail, if you are still having problems, the only way we can help is if you tell us about them.
We are also natural feeders and fully advocate feeding dogs a natural diet and not commercial processed pet foods and treats. For more information on natural feeding and alternatives to annual vaccinations please visit:
