Problems With Your Adult Dog?

All grown up now?

Adult or Adolescent?

Between the ages of 6 months and anything up to 2 (or even 3) years  they are in the adolescent phase.

Outside of that range they are in that broad and rather vague stage referred to as adulthood, which includes the older dogs. On this page we are focusing on adults up to 7/8 years old. Older dog needs are discussed here.
In the adult stage of life anything can happen. Sometimes new problems seem to happen for no reason and other times you can probably see it as a continuation of something they experienced when they were younger.
Problems develop because they didn’t have a great start due to circumstances at the time, or maybe life has changed and there have been traumatic or disruptive circumstances which have upset your usually well behaved dog.
Sometimes it can seem like there is no reason for the change and your dog has just changed into an alien overnight or over a period of time.
Maybe you have had a concern for a long time and hoped things would improve. Maybe you now think that your dog is too old to change or learn anything new?
The good news is that there is always something you can do about your situation to make it easier and less painful to live with.

If your dog can't travel, is unhappy with other people or dogs, or just isn't coping with the world very well we have you covered!

Our 8 week online programmes mean you and your dog don't need to endure unnecessary stress.

We want you and your dog to feel comfortable and enjoy our training programmes. It shouldn’t be something you have to dread or endure.

  • It can be difficult inviting a trainer into your home or life to help you if your dog is unhappy with strangers.

  • It can take time for the trainer to be accepted nearby so you can start to make progress.

  • It is stressful for you and your dog to be in that position and it makes it much harder for you both to learn.

  • If your dog hates rain and the appointment is on a rainy day you have to re-arrange.

  • Using online video calls and an extensive video vault of tutorial videos and daily diary systems we can guide you through and track your progress as if we were there with you

  • And if you get to the point where you feel ready for an in-person training session you can absolutely do that too!

  • We dont want anything to stand in the way of you getting the help you need so we design the programme for YOU!

Physiotherapy Assessment

One often overlooked cause of behaviour problems is hidden pain.

Dogs are very good at working aroud the bits of them that aren't functioning very well and can do this invisibly for many years.

A physiotherapy assessment can help to see if there is a hidden problem and can also be a way to treat the problem.
