HOW I WORK WITH YOU TO CHANGE BEHAVIOURS.
I train with a very modern, calm and balanced approach, with positive reinforcement being 95% of my training, but this alone with the majority of cases will not modify unwanted behaviours, so I use all four quadrants of dog training.
Always taking my time with every client to explain the psychology and the why, I believe every dog is unique and different, and that the one size fits all approach that so many trainers use does not achieve success, so an individual training plan is put together specific to you and your dogs needs.
I then guide you and your dog, step by step sharing my knowledge and teaching my mastered training techniques, here you will see the power of balance, and the changes in your dogs behaviours normally during the first consultation.
I always educate people and dogs from a place of calmness and kindness, and your dog or puppies welfare are always my highest priority
Paul has been brilliant with us and our pooch Simba (majority of the training was for us!). Right from the start we felt comfortable with Paul’s friendly and approachable style, he is clearly very knowledgable about dogs and their behaviour, and cares deeply about their welfare.
We have seen a big improvement in Simba over the past few weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our session with Paul and Bella in the training centre. Paul has given us loads more confidence in being the owners Simba needs, and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Mindful Dog. Thank you!
After just one session with Paul our Dachshunds walks and overall dog reactivity/aggressive behaviours improved dramatically. Paul was so informative and taught us so many things, including leadership skills, boundaries and structure in our home. I learnt so much about my dog and was given the right tools to make the right changes. Paul was supportive in between sessions and gave us much needed feedback on the progress videos I sent him. If you are looking for quick and effective results I would 100% recommend Mindful Dog. Thanks so much.
It’s been a year since we started seeing Paul with our then puppy and now fully grown labradoodle (Benji)!
He helped us correct all the issues that came along the way from lead walking (stop pulling), place training and control barking at visitors etc.
Being just another puppy born during the pandemic socialisation was an issue to start with, but again with Paul’s guidance and advice we also got over this hurdle.
Paul has an amazing approach and understanding of dog’s behaviours and provides amazing strategies to deal with challenging behaviours empowering us as owners to take control and create a happy environment for us all as a family and of course for our Benji too!
Paul also worked with our children by teaching them how to behave with Benji and giving them easy to follow tips to address any issues.
Once again, thank you so much Paul for all your help, wise advice and support! I’m sure we’ll keep coming back to you over and over again whenever we’re struggling again not knowing how to address certain behaviours!
First time taking my Carpathian shepherd. He is reactive and fear aggresive. Within 30 minutes he was able to sit without his muzzle on, much more relaxed. Paul was fantastic! Highly recommend him. Simple techniques that can make such a massive difference. Can not thank you enough. Very experienced.
