GENTLE FORCE-FREE METHODS THAT ARE KIND…..AND EFFECTIVE
…as my ‘stories‘ will tell you…

- Helping experienced dog owners who are encountering difficulties.
- Aggression problems and rehabilition
- Dog to dog reactivity
- Dogs living with children
- Clicker training
- Fearfulness and separation anxiety
- Guarding and protective behaviours
- Unruliness and hyperactivity (specialising in wild and crazy dogs that don’t listen, seem out of control, lack impulse control, that may even resort to aggression through over-arousal).
- Walks: walking nicely on lead, coming back when called, reactivity and fear of people, other dogs, traffic and so on.
- Puppy Parenting
- Making life as stress-free and happy as it can be for you and your dog
You gave me some incredibly helpful advice when I was at a point of crisis with my two rescue dogs. My thanks alone would never be enough. Holly Dean
3 weeks ago I was at the end of my tether and it was me or the dogs (and I suspect my husband may have chosen the dogs!). I didn’t know how to stop all the barking, dreaded callers to the house and generally wondered why on earth I had dogs. It has been hard, the first 10 days or so was stressful trying to remember all the things to do, I lost my temper, I shouted, the dogs seemed worse than ever before but now I am seeing results, it feels good, I feel good. The dogs are brilliant, I love them again.
Thank you for coming to meet us. Both Michael and I expected someone judgemental and you were nothing like that at all. We really felt that you considered our emotions as much as the dogs’ and made sure that we understood why we were to behave in a different way and see it from the dogs’ point of view. We both thought you were lovely!
Extremely prompt telephone call after my initial email. I felt empowered following the visit, and confident I will learn good leadership! Delighted with Theo. William (our Dalmation) is already calmer. I wont give up on him now Theos in his and our lives.
Theo has been very supportive from her first phone call following my email enquiry, calling back with further suggestions even before she met us. Trudi has changed already, really calmed down, and we feel confident that with Theos support there is positive hope that we will get there.
Punctual and professional. Almost instant calmer dog, just by looking at the situation from a different angle (ie dog angle)! Theo was a calming influence even when Ben gave his warning sign usually preceding aggression. We were impressed. Thanks again.
Very friendly, pitched perfectly for the whole family – and good follow up!Was very impressed with Theo, she was very helpful and extremely easy to talk to. Theo explained everything very well to us both, making everything easier to understand
Theo gave me confidence with my dogs whichI very rarely feel with a stranger in the house. I was very impressed with the service received. My only regret is not asking for help months ago!!
The service we received was prompt, informative, efficient and well explained. We would have no hesitation in recommending Theo to any other family with similar problems, I now have a more relaxed dog and the family is more relaxed!
Having had a trainer over previously to help with Dollys biting and obsessive behaviour who had very negative methods in my opinion, we did a lot of research to find Theo and she lived up to our expectations.
Many professionals who are excellent dog trainers now also offer behaviour consultations, something for which they are unlikely to have insufficient experience and training themselves. To safely and effectively deal with behaviour problems choose a behaviourist.
