About Dog Ed
My business name says a lot about what I am passionate about. Education is the key to understanding how dogs think, learn and behave.
Training needs to be fun and uncomplicated for both you and your dog. Understanding modern science-based positive training methods will help you build a long-lasting bond with your dog.
I love teaching owners how to communicate with their dog to shape and reinforce wanted behaviours or to change unwanted ones. Positive, gentle, reward training methods gives your dog the best chance to learn and behave in a manner that is good for them and us.
Did you know that by 16 weeks of age your puppy has already learned a huge amount about life?
Social and behavioural patterns have already been shaped and experiences learned can influence the way your puppy behaves for life.
Both wanted and unwanted!
Puppyhood is an exciting and sometimes challenging time. It is an extremely important stage of development for a puppy. Early socialisation in a positive environment is crucial for your puppy to enable it to behave and respond in a normal and acceptable manner.
