Group dog behaviour walks

For tomorrows group dog behaviour walk please meet me at 1pm, note the time change, 1pm at Hill Hole nature reserve, Hill Lane, Markfield LE67 9NP at 1pm for an hour of dog behaviour training.


Saturday 17th August 2019 is our next group dog behaviour walks at 09.30 and 10.45, each walk lasts an hour and we will meet in the car park of the Man within Compass, Loughborough Rd, Whitwick LE67 5AS.

Our walks are for all dogs who need help with their behaviour, one of the most common issues we help address is the recall. This is a must have regardless of distraction and needs a lot of practice and our walks provide an ideal training opportunity with plenty of distraction.

Lead pulling, barking and social behaviour are just some of the other behaviours we work on so if you need help and advice for your dog, I suggest you come to our group walks, you will learn a great deal and you will see improvements in your dogs behaviour.

Our next group dog behaviour walk is on Wednesday 14th August at noon and we will be exploring Sence Valley country park, 14 Ravenstone Rd, Ibstock LE67 6NW and we will meet in the bottom car park. There is always a lot going on at Sence Valley so it will be full of stimulation and distraction. See you there!


Saturday 10th August 2019.

Good morning, I hope your week has been a good one and you are ready for the weekend. To help relieve the stress and strain of the previous week, why not join us with your dog for a group dog behaviour walk or two tomorrow Saturday 10th August? Get out into the fresh air with your dog and learn new skills at the same time!

We are meeting at the Plough Inn, Burroughs Rd, Ratby LE6 0XZ and the walks start at 09.30 and 10.45 respectively. The walks tomorrow include street walking in close proximity to other dogs, woodland walking where some dogs will be off lead and a return to the car park with street walking. There is plenty of distractions for you and your dog to learn how to cope with, the group is a friendly one and your dog is welcome, even if it is badly behaved.

The cost for a whole hour of tuition is £15.00 for one dog and £20.00 for two or more and you will learn a great deal by doing and by listening. At any point during the walk you are struggling with your dog, I will happily give you a break whilst I go through with you how you can improve your dogs behaviour.

These walks are open to everyone who is interested in learning about their dogs behaviour and how to influence change.


Wednesday 7th August 2019 group dog behaviour walk:

We will meet at Thornton reservoir, Reservoir Road, Thornton LE67 1AR and the walk will start at noon and will mean we are walking the entire perimeter which will give us a walk of just under three miles, plenty of steps!

We will encounter other dogs, people, runners, cyclists and wildlife so you and your dog will be challenged and you will learn a great deal during the walk, whatever dog you have and whatever the issue you are experiencing. Loose lead walking, being relaxed and comfortable around other dogs and coming back when called will be worked on and improved on during the walk. If your dog is very reactive, please bring a muzzle for them so you and they can be more relaxed around other dogs, we will make sure you are at a distance where you can be relaxed, we have to make sure the dog has the greatest chance of success so we can establish a platform we can build on.

See you tomorrow!


Saturday 3rd August group dog behaviour walks.

We will meet at Bagworth Heath, Heath Rd, Bagworth LE67 1DL and the walks will start at 09.30 and 10.45 and last for an hour each. Please note there are no facilities at Bagworth Heath just lots of lovely open space. We will use the open space and the woodland walks to help our dog owners feel relaxed and in control as this will transmit to their dogs who will in turn feel relaxed and calm because someone else is in control. We will teach you how to understand why your dog behaves the way it does and we will help you change that behaviour into a behaviour you want from your dog.

Some dogs will be on the lead and some will be off the lead, it will depend on which dogs we have in the group and at what stage they and their owners are at. We will help you understand and learn how to cope with off lead dogs that approach you so you and your dog feel calm, relaxed and in control. If your dog is very reactive, please bring a muzzle for them so you and they can be more relaxed around other dogs, we will make sure you are at a distance where you can be relaxed, we have to make sure the dog has the greatest chance of success so we can establish a platform we can build on.

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday.


27th July 2019

On Saturday 27th July we will meet at the Bulls Head pub, Loughborough Rd, Thringstone, LE67 8LR for two group dog behaviour walks starting at 09.30 and 10.45 respectively. Each walk lasts an hour and will be tailored to suit the individual dogs on the walk so each dog will get what they need in terms of where they are in the training plan.

All dogs are welcome, I can help you with many dog behaviour issues and you will see a difference in an hour and you will know a lot more that you did at the start of the walk. You will know what your dog is trying to communicate to you and I will teach you how to respond so your dog can feel safe and relaxed.


20th July 2019

On Saturday 20th July we will meet at the Man Within Compass pub, Loughborough Rd, Whitwick LE67 5AS for two group dog behaviour walks starting at 09.30 and 10.45. Each walk lasts an hour and will teach you a great deal about your dog, their behaviour and how you create and control that behaviour. We will help you learn to have a loose lead when walking your dog, to be well behaved and relaxed around other dogs so your dog can be and we will teach you how to teach a very good recall, regardless of distraction.

You are welcome to come along with your dog, even if I haven’t met you before. All ages of dogs are welcome, whatever their behaviour. If they are very reactive, they will have to wear a muzzle as this will allow you to be more relaxed when around other dogs and people. Our group dog behaviour walks will be great fun in a group of like minded people who will not mind your dog being disruptive, that is just the distraction they like to work their dogs with.

This is a lovely place to walk and learn, you and your dog will find it both stimulating and challenging and you will both learn a great deal about walking your dog on a lead, how to deal with approaching dogs both on and off lead and we will work on your recall.

All levels of behaviour are taught on these walks, walking on a loose lead, coming back when called and being well behaved around people and other dogs. You also learn how to deal with off lead dogs approaching your dog and what to do if the dogs start to get aggressive. You will learn so much!

 2nd July 2019.

Good morning, our midweek group dog behaviour group walk is happening tomorrow at midday and we will have a lovely walk around Thornton reservoir, and I do mean all the way around it. It takes just about an hour and is a great test as there is always a lot going on to distract our dogs, walkers, joggers, cyclists and wildlife so it is a really good place to learn. What will you learn?

To walk with a loose lead so your dog isn’t pulling, this does require a change of thinking from what you might want to do is response to your dog pulling on the lead but you will make a difference. How your dog greets other dogs is also important, your dog needs to have good manners and know how to greet other dogs calmly and nicely and they do need to be shown how to do this properly so you reduce the risk of escalation and possible conflict, no one wants dogs arguing because we get it wrong! There is so much you can do to help your dog behave better!

The address is :

Thornton reservoir, reservoir road, Thornton and we are meeting at midday and the walk will take about an hour, the route is flat and on good surfaces with a good mix of open area and shade. Please meet me in the car park ready for a noon departure
