Choosing who helps you train your dog can be a difficult process as there is a lot of trainer’s promoting their way is the best. My advise would be to ask to see videos of their own dogs in a public setting being trained and client's dogs they have trained or testimonials to validate their claims.
Trainers can make big claims but the reality is many of their methods wont work in a real world situation when it's most needed. Most promotional videos you see will be in a very controlled environment. However in the real world you need to handle your dog around multiple distractions and this can be very challenging. This is why you need to learn methods that wont fail you.
Managing behavioural issues like reactivity and teaching your dog the skills you want requires a lot of dedication. I will show you how to do this with a no-nonsense approach, and it will not be relying on food as your primary training tool.
My professional experience with Police dogs, detector dogs and thousands of peoples pet dogs with every temperament has given me the knowledge and confidence that I can help you get the best out of your dog and improve all aspects of their lives.
My points of difference to some other trainers
The 1st point is the services I can offer at my full time training facility. If you are aiming to correct behavioural problems like reactivity you need to be getting your dog around dogs in a controlled environment to manage and improve the issue. I have access to no less than 30 different dogs everyday at my training centre. So this means we can recreate the problem and work through it by implementing training techniques to get you managing your dog better.
The 2nd point is my experience as a former Military Police Dog Handler and training thousands of dogs over the years a professional dog trainer dealing with all levels of behaviour. One of the most common is high level reactivity with very aggressive dogs. Allot of trainers claim they have the answers but in reality they don't. A highly promoted method of training is force free or positive only. This can get great results for some areas of training but when dealing with certain behavioural problems in a distracting real world environments it will fail you many times and leave you not knowing how to control your dog with other dogs or people. This can end up with people and dogs getting hurt because an owner wasn't given the right skills to control their dog.

You will start with training in controlled environments and work towards training them around distractions and all environment's they are going to be exposed to.
Dog training is not as complicated as people will make it out to be. Dogs are fairly basic in their way of communicating & understanding us. As like allot of things we often complicate it which can leave you second guessing if you are doing the right thing.
