Making learning accessible to all

The science of learning and animal behavior has taken away the mystery of dog training, explaining how and why positive, force free teaching methods work. These are the methods we use and enjoy showing owners how to read their dogs body language in order to work even closer with them.

We promote only kind, fair and effective evidence based training techniques. We actively encourage the use clicker training because it builds a wonderful open communication between handler and dog, building their bond, trust and confidence. We do not use methods or equipment designed to inflict physical pain, discomfort, fear or intimidation.

What People Say

Don’t just take it from me, let my clients do the talking!

Had a 1-2-1 session with Eryn when Nelson (our pug puppy) first arrived, and then took Nelson along for 6 weeks of puppy training. Nelson loved the classes, and quickly got used to being around dogs of all sizes, people and other distractions. The training really worked and the best thing was that Nelson couldn’t wait to go back! Big thank you to Eryn and her team! Alex McGovern

Nelson : Pug, Puppy Behaviour Consultation & 6 week Puppy Class

We had a great session with Eryn. She taught the children to be ‘doggy detectives’ and read dogs’ signals. They loved it! She was really engaging and clear, so the children really got it. I’m so relieved we can turn to Eryn for our puppy advice – it’s made getting a puppy much more manageable. Sarah Flynn

Herbie : Italian Spinone, Puppy Behaviour Consultation & Puppy Classes

Had an amazing 6 weeks of training. Passed our little test yesterday, then it the TV set today. Harlie was amazing! Thank you for all you help. Juliette Dean
