Our expertise

REACTIVE to REASSURE incorporating our WALK and LEARN Service

Our REACTIVE TO REASSURED work  is one of our specialist areas.   Karen Boyce begin learning about reactive dogs and how to help them back in the very early nineties, because of her own dog's reactivity.   Since then she has become one of the busiest trainers across the UK.   Helping owners with dogs of all sorts of breeds and all sorts of ages cope in the real world .   We teach owners to understand how their dogs think, how they store memories, what effect hormones play, how important nutrition is etc. 

Dogs who can't cope with the outside world, once their owners have had the pyschology of fear and learning,  move on to our WALK and LEARN service.   "Dogs walk, owners learn!"

The WALK and LEARN is also ideal for general issues such as recalls and walking on lead.
