puppy behaviour training
Why does a puppy need behaviour training?
hy do adult dogs and reuse dogs need behaviour training?
Because they were allowed to do what they wanted as puppies and didn't get any puppy behaviour training!
Did you know your new puppy is learning how to behave even before you go and choose?
Did you know your new puppy works out your own behaviour in the first two days of living with you?
Have those three facts made you think about your new puppy a bit differently? I hope so!
Teaching a puppy to behave is very difficult, doing puppy behaviour training is very difficult because the last thing anyone wants to do with their new puppy is teach him how to behave.
Having a new puppy is all about play, noise, excitement and movement isn't it? Usually yes yet it is during the first few days and weeks that you can teach your puppy to behave properly and then your puppy will remember your puppy behaviour training through the rest of his life. Getting off to the right start teaching your puppy how to behave will prevent so many issues as the dog grows and gets older.
Puppy behaviour training is not sit, down and stay, that is puppy obedience training. Puppy behaviour training is toilet training, greeting people, walking on a lead and recall and all of these puppy behaviours can be trained within the first two weeks if we apply ourselves from the outset.
One simple thing that proves puppy behaviour training has not been done is puppy biting hands. This shows the puppy has been overstimulated for too long and con't cope. This proves puppy behaviour training has not been done because a puppy should never be stimulated beyond his ability to cope yet how often do we consider what our new puppy needs?
We are too concerned that we do what we want regardless of the puppies needs so really it is you who needs puppy behaviour training! What a surprise! Seriously, it is very difficult to keep calm when we get a new puppy, especially if there are younger children involved.
Here I will give you a word of warning. How we teach our puppy to behave in the first month is how your puppy will behave as an adult if nothing changes. If you have a small breed, that makes puppy behaviour training even more difficult because small dog breeds are allowed to get away with much more than large dog breeds because far fewer people are scared of small dogs yet the behaviours are the same.
herefore, owners of large breed puppies have a greater responsibility to ensure puppy behaviour training is done properly so they can be confident their large breed dog will be a well behaved adult.
Small dog breed owners need to take responsibility and do their puppy behaviour training properly so their dogs are not allowed to run up to other, bigger dogs as this causes problems for the owners of larger breed dogs. It is the responsibility and now the law that dog owners have their dogs under control in a public place and this all starts with puppy behaviour training.
f you allow your puppy freedom to do as it wishes, you will never have the control you need when he is an adult. Puppy behaviour training prevents so many unwanted behaviours in older dogs so it is really worth getting puppy behaviour training for yourselves as soon as you get your new puppy. It will be the best decision you ever made!
A 90 minute puppy behaviour training home visit when you first bring puppy home is the best start, a second visit one month later, then at six months will teach your puppy how to behave during those most important learning months. Brining your puppy to my dog behaviour group walks will complete the puppy behaviour training properly and then we can move on to adult dog behaviour training. I also suggest you buy my puppy behaviour training book before you get your new puppy so you are properly prepared.

I look forward to meeting you!

puppy behaviour the havers way book
Puppy Behaviour the Havers Way is a brand new book that will give you a very different approach to puppy behaviour like no other puppy behaviour book ever has.
That is a bold claim as I am sure you will have read many books on puppy behaviour before, I know I did hen I researched other offerings before I wrote my book on puppy behaviour and they all seem to be the same!
I found this quite concerning. When I researched publishing my book on puppy behaviour, I came across a seemingly golden rule that a book has to be substantially different to be worthy of publishing yet all puppy behaviour books appear to be the same, say the same things and do the same things. I wondered why this could be and the realisation was a simple one. People will always buy a book that promises to solve problems so it all comes down to an easy market.
I don't think that is fair to you! You are parting with your hard earned money and you want value for that money when you you a book on puppy behaviour ad you want that book to help you deal with puppy behaviour so you have a well behaved puppy, don't you?
I know many thousands of dog owners and they nearly all have books on puppy training or dog training in their bookshelves yet they still struggle with their puppies or dogs.
What does that tell you? The puppy behaviour book didn't give good advice that worked therefore wasn't good value for money! Just my opinion but there it is!
So you are now thinking what is different in my book about puppy behaviour?
My book on puppy behaviour starts with selecting the puppy, observing how the breeder behaves and helping you understand how that shapes your puppies expectations even before you choose your new puppy! There, that got your attention! I go into levels of detail that other books on puppy behaviour don't even get close to! I will help you understand your new puppy in ways you wouldn't ever have thought of because we don't think about the puppy in the right way.
Puppy Behaviour the Havers Way book helps you plan your journey home and teaches you how to bring your new puppy into your house for the first time. If things are done properly first time, everyone nows what to do and your new puppy is no exception!
I also help you plan and prepare for the first night with your new puppy from the moment you get your new puppy home! It is very important that you know what to do so your first night is quiet and peaceful!
Puppy Behaviour the Havers Way book teaches you how to approach toilet training so your new puppy earns as fast a possible where he should go to the toilet so the risk of mistakes is greatly reduced so you are all more relaxed and happy!
I also help you with bad walking and recall training and this is all within the first five days of getting your new puppy home! I believe in preparation so your puppy has the best possible chance of growing into a very well behaved dog you can be proud of and not the sort of dog we all dread meeting when out on a walk, you know the exact sort I'm talking about!
Buy Puppy Behaviour the Havers Way book and you will be able to enjoy your new puppy and be able to deal with everything he throws at you in a calm and knowledgeable manner because you will know exactly what to do!
You and your new puppy deserve the best start together and Puppy Behaviour the Havers Way book will give you all the information you need for that great start.

Is it odd a dog behaviourist should visit your home to address your dogs behaviour when you consider the problem with your dogs behaviour is outside?
If you try and address only one part of your dog then it would be strange but my work as a dog behaviourist looks at the whole picture and, my dear dog owner, that includes you! I do more work as a human behaviourist than I do as a dog behaviourist because it is your behaviour, and that of every other dog owner I work with that needs the most attention.
You, as a human being will be doing things you have no idea your dog is picking up on. Some things you will be aware of as they are quite obvious but there are many you won't be aware of but I guarantee your dog is aware of them and builds them into his behaviour. So you see I am as much a human behaviourist as I am a dog behaviourist.
How do you reward good behaviour in your dog?
Your answer will probably include the word treat but that is not what I actually asked you. but it is the most common form of response because it demonstrates how easily we distance ourselves from the dog. I'll ask the question again, how do you reward your dog?
The answer I will give you is this, you reward with excitement.
Most of your problems with your dog come from that simple fact, you reward your dog with excitement. How is your dog going to think it behaves for you?
Dog behaviourist or human behaviourist?
Now I have you thinking a little differently, please read on to see what is involved....
Here I will give you a word of warning. This is not click and treat because I don't give treats to dog owners for good behaviour, just lots of praise! It is your own behaviour and attention you will be learning to control and that is hard work. Please be assured I won't be offended if we don't work together as my teaching is not for everyone. Lasting change requires commitment and I would like to give you an example of the level of commitment required. Lasting change will happen during a course of up to three home visits and at least ten of my dog behaviour walks. If you can't commit to this level then please seek help elsewhere. If you can't get to my dog behaviour walks, monthly home visits are the next best thing because you will keep working towards your goal to have a happy, well balanced and well behaved dog you can be proud of wherever you go together! Dog Behaviourist or Human Behaviourist? One cannot work properly without the other!
If your goal is to have your dog be calm and very well behaved and you have realised that treats are not effective enough and you are prepared to work hard then call 01530 242209 now and lets get started. You will have my dedicated support through the whole journey and that is my promise to you.
My mission is to help you and your dog live a happy life together without being dependent on a bag of treats. You are probably asking why I don't use treats as a dog behaviourist as all dog training seems to depend on treats? Dog trainers are usually teaching obedience so they use treats, as a Human behaviourist, I am teaching you and your dog to be calm and well behaved. When is a dog ever calm for a treat? If you reward with treats you are still rewarding excitement. These are not the things a well behaved dog gets rewarded for , a well behaved dog who has worked with me is a calm, well balanced and well behaved dog who can cope with whatever life throws at them because I have taught you how to behave. Dog behaviourist or Human behaviourist? Call 01530 242209 to see how I can help you to help your dog become well behaved.
I look forward to meeting you! I am in Markfield, Leicestershire LE67 9RJ.

intensive training for dog owners from the human behaviourist
Intensive training for dog owners? What is involved?
Intensive training for dog owners is like a dog training boot camp but for dog owners who need a quicker fix.
One to one intensive training from just me, the dog behaviourist working with just you and your dog or dogs as a human behaviourist.
This is the most intensive, challenging, demanding and stressful training you will ever undertake.
I will turn your knowledge of dogs on its head and rewrite it from your dogs point of view. Then you will clearly understand why your dog behaves the way he does.
Dog Behaviourist or Human behaviourist? Both are at full throttle during these five days. Only if you are brave enough to read on, do so!
The five days are intensive dog training if you want to use that phrase but I don't train dogs so we can't use that phrase. The five days are intensive dog owner training because you will be doing all the work. The hard work you will be undertaking is learning and relearning. Your head contains a great deal of information about dogs and how you think you should train them. Most of that learning will not apply when you are working with me.
Almost all of my work is counter intuitive to what you already know, it goes against how we are taught to think so how and why does it work?
I am a dog behaviourist but more of a human behaviourist because I teach you how to see your behaviour from your dogs perspective. Then you will understand just how your behaviour creates and reinforces behaviours in your dog.
During these five days, my goal is to retrain how you think about your dog, retrain how you behave with your dog and get you to truly understand your dog.
Intensive dog training? No. Dog Behaviour? A little. Human behaviour? 99%.
If you would like to know more about working with me for five days, please call for a chat. During the five days, I promise you and I will have a terrific, enjoyable, challenging and very productive time. Please call 01530 242209 now or fill in my contact form and we can have a chat!
What do the five days on intensive dog owner training consist of?
They will consist of situations and locations you need to work in to resolve the issues you are having trying to teach your dog how to behave.
Before the week starts, we will have a thorough telephone conversation about the problems you are experiencing, the level of the problems your dog is giving you, any contact with other dog behaviourists and any results.
We will then plan together which locations to use that will help you and I address and resolve the issues you are struggling with.
As a dog behaviourist I can help your dog learn to behave in country parks, open spaces, around wild life and livestock, with runners, joggers, cyclists, other dogs, other dogs off lead, town centres, railway stations, airports or wherever your dog struggles.
As a Human behaviourist I can help you learn to understand why your dog behaves as he does in these situations, I can help you learn to be able to show your dog you know what you are doing so your dog can relax, I can show you how to be relaxed and in control in these situations and I will do all of this without treats or toys. I will use the power of your attention and teach you how to use it properly
My dog owner intensive training focuses on three core principles:
For your dog to walk on a slack lead.
For your dog to remain calm whatever the distraction.
for your dog to come back when called, regardless of distraction
If your dog will do these three things, you have a dog that is under full control whatever the situation. That is a dog you can be proud of and you are an example of a good dog owner.
It requires a dog behaviourist and a human behaviourist to achieve these three core principles so if your goal is to have your dog be calm and very well behaved and you are prepared to work hard then call 01530 242209 now and lets get started. You will have my dedicated support through the whole journey and that is my promise to you.
The next intensive training for dog owners course starts on Monday 23rd January 2017. Ring 01530 242209 to book your place or use the contact form please. Please note only six intensive dog owner training weeks are available in 2019.
I look forward to meeting you! I am in Markfield, Leicestershire LE67 9RJ.
The price for the full five days is £2,500.00.

Steven was a pleasure to work with and delivered amazing results in a short amount of time. We were very impressed with how well the dog picked up the new skills and learned plenty of interesting and useful tips throughout the session.
Steven was also great on camera and was very professional and helpful during pre-production and on the shoot day.
