BEHAVIOUR

PROBLEMS

Ask me a question
Together you can achieve anything

The key question is not ‘how do I stop this problem behaviour?’ Rather, the question is what do I want him to do instead….and teach it.

It takes courage to stop, stand back and accept that you need help and then to commit to the time to make those changes. I admire anyone who will commit time in the busy lives we all lead to help their dog overcome behavioural problems, and so many people do – and succeed.

You may have tried without success to resolve the problems yourself, or tried to ignore them until you realised you couldn’t any more, or you thought your dog would ‘grow out of it’. Sometimes the behaviour has escalated to the point it is so worrying that it can’t be ignored any longer. It may be endangering your dog, you as his owner or maybe other other dogs or people. Alternatively, you may have adopted a rescue dog or taken on an adult dog who arrived with problems.

Solving behaviour problems will not only improve your dog’s quality of life immensely but yours too, it will increase your bond with each other and make your life together so much more enjoyable.

I understand how hard it is to share your life with a dog who is ‘hard to live with’ – 20 years ago I had one of those dogs. I loved him with all my heart but for the majority of his life it was hard work.. I just wish that I had known as much then as I do now about dog behaviour and I could have made his life, and mine so much easier.

01. Reactive dogs

Dogs can be reactive, barking, lunging and growling for many reasons, I see many many dogs who aren’t comfortable around other dogs, visitors to their home or strangers.

02. Guarding

Dogs guard all kinds of things for all kinds of reasons – food, toys and places. Living with a dog who is like Jekyll and Hyde is hard, a usually loving and calm dog turns into a Tasmanian devil around whatever it is they feel the need to protect.

03. Separation Anxiety

Dogs can develop this for all kinds of reasons, some dogs (and some breeds) are more prone to it than others.  This isn’t anxiety, it is sheer panic and is so often very distressing for dogs and owners too and I have a programme that will help your dog be much happier to be left alone.

01. Fears and phobias

Dogs can become scared of all kinds of things, sometimes seemingly out of the blue, confidence building through appropriate training will help your dog

02. Destructive

A behaviour consultation will allow me to assess WHY your dog is ripping up your sofa or chewing the skirting boards and give you a programme to help prevent it happening in the future.

Kerry did an amazing job with Princess, she does training with her for all our TV performances. She’s also helped our other pup Empress with her recall. Highly recommend!

Just had one session so far and Kerry has shown me a lot of good techniques. For the first time in the last week I have a dog that is tired - mentally. Definitely recommend to anyone with a new dog - puppy or not.

Just attended a 6 week course and found it excellent. I have a very timid pooch who would not be around anyone. The Fairydogmother is patient, knowledgeable, kind and fun. Wonderful display technique of 'how to do sit, stay, leave' etc ...

Absolutely awesome. Very knowledgeable so professional but easily approachable too. My dogs adored her. It's still early days but following her instructions, I can already see a difference. Cannot recommend highly enough. She's AWESOME

Attended a six week puppy course for my cocker spaniel and I loved it! Charlie had so much fun, Kerry was so patient and gave such good advice and training methods. Charlie is now a well socialised puppy, loves meeting people and new situations which is definitely down to these puppy classes! Such good value for money.

Had a home visit behaviour consultation as our new puppy is very low on confidence and was fab! Kerry is brilliant and I would recommend her to everybody. Took the time to teach my children how to handle our new pup and they are now following her methods.
