Canine Behaviour & Training

About Pawsitive Dog Training

Pawsitive Dog Training was founded by Louise Jones. Louise has owned dogs all of her life and has studied Canine Behaviour & Training to FDSc Level in Bishop Burton College, UK.

 

Louise also continues to educate herself further by studying additional courses, regularly attending seminars and workshops. This is so she can also keep up to date with the most current scientific training methods available

 

She is currently owned by Monty-a Boxer cross, Alpha-a Siberian Husky and Dyson-a Northern Inuit.

 

At Pawsitive Dog Training we only use kind but effective methods of training and uses scientifically proven, current methods.

 

We do not believe in bullying the dog, Alpha rolls or the use of equipment such as prong collars or choke chains.

 

Ethical treatment of your dog is first and foremost here at Pawsitive Dog Training and we would not recommend any training methods that we would not use on our own dogs.

 

Dog training should be a time for the owner to bond with the dog and we offer this to all of our clients.

 

We offer an initial consultation where we discuss your dog's problems and establish a behaviour modification plan that is specifically tailored for you and your dog.

 

Pawsitive Dog Training has full Public Liability Insurance & Professional Indemnity Insurance, so you can rest assured that both you and your dog will be safe.
