You want your dog to be able to go anywhere without causing you embarrassment, stress or worry or that he will run away.
You want to be able to leave the house without fear he will chew up the furniture or annoy the neighbours with barking or whining.
You want your dog to greet people and other dogs without jumping up and lunging.
You want to protect your dog and others if he is exhibiting aggression towards people or other dogs.
You want your dog to be calm, confident and happy!
Just like people, dogs respond best in a positive, kind and fun environment so you will find my practice uses progressive techniques designed to help both your dog and you towards a happier future together.
All breeds of dogs benefit from behaviour training so whether your dog is a pup, mature, elderly or a rescue he can be guided towards exchanging unwanted conduct for more acceptable behaviour giving both him and you a more fulfilling life together.
'Very interesting 2 hours and we learned so much. I am sure the training will set Sophie up to win now we have a clear plan in how to help her and we all understand the importance in working together.' KI & Family, Prestwick 30/10/2019
'Thanks for today Maya - could write more but you know...' NT, Kent, 10/11/2019

'Tried so many things to help this boy that I didn't know what else to do except I knew I was not giving up on him. I have brought him on so far in the 7 months I've had him but it seems some traits can't be shifted so thanks so much for your help and support Maya - means so much, it really does. ' DB, Durham, 02/11/2019
'Will definitely be putting the recommended strategies in place to help guide and train Ari so that he understands exactly what behaviour we are looking for and where his place is in the home. Thanks again Maya .' DB, Fenwick 29/10/2019

'Trigger management has really helped me and the boys Maya and it has made such a difference. Here we are at a Summer Fayre and look at how relaxed they were. I admit I was on high alert but no need my boys were perfect gentlemen! Thanks again.' SH, Sussex, 02/07/2019
''Thanks for all the help today. So much information and help for our boy and we are starting straight away.' MD&LH, Tarbolton 26/07/2019
'He was brilliant Maya! I have a new dog to walk! Thanks to you for explaining about his stress and helping. I cannot thank you enough - seriously!' JM, Darvel, 22/11/2019
'Thanks for the info. I knew it was me!' Seriously though the session was very informative and I am ready and willing to try out all the strategies and exercises to help Harley get back on track.'

'Hank is a super dog in every way and we are delighted to enhance his training with some structured hands-on behavioural work. There is so much to learn here (for human as well as canine!) Thanks Maya.' BM, Troon 17/07/2019
'Lots of information to process here and we are glad to have this help for Bica and for us. It is helping us to understand Bica and to help her to feel at ease and happy here in her new home with us. We will implement all the strategies and especially the cue words and work together to help Bica become relaxed and stress free. Many thanks' LB, Fenwick 15/08/2019
'The main reason for the training was really to ensure we have things right and the tips and strategies employed during the two hours proved invaluable and useful moving forward with Jack. Many thanks Maya.' GM, Troon, 31/010/2019
'Thanks for today Maya. I loved the session and the handouts so I can read then over again later. I learned so much I didn't know about dogs and Woody in particular and I am so pleased he is doing well. I understand he is only young and has a way to go but I will definitely be taking your advice and training him along as we discussed. I love the idea of a report afterwards too so I don't have to feel I need to remember everything as it is quite a lot to take in at once.' LR, Hurlford , 13/09/2019
‘Thank you! Don’t feel as nervous letting George loose around the other dogs now we understand what is happening between them. Learning to Think Dog!’ LS & Family, Troon, 27/08/2019
'Lots to learn here and it is fascinating stuff. Many ways to help Lily and I am getting started right away!' RC, Ardrossan, 21/07/2019
Rarely have I worked with a dog as scared and as shut down as this 2 y/o male Lab. As can be seen from these heartbreaking pictures Mr Lewis desperately wants to trust and is trying his best. Although he cannot yet bear to be in the same room as a female, he has come a long way in the short time he has been with his lovely new family. Rehabilitation will be slow and there will be good and not so good days on his journey but with love, care and behavioural guidance Lewis will make it. Lewis was a stud rental dog. Reason for sale ‘stock needs to be thinned out’. Yet another reason to ADOPT don’t SHOP people! Dalrymple, 09/12/2018
'Maya you have been such a help! I am so glad I called on you and I can see it is never too late to teach a dog new tricks! It is very much all about Selkie and watching her signs - and yes if she can do it outside she can do it inside too. I will be in touch with updates. Many thanks again.' AT, Ayr, 06/06/2019
'Thanks for the session today. It was very informative and in such a short time I learned a lot about my dog and about myself as a dog owner. I can see Jasper responding to cues and although he can be stubborn at times I have the right set of tools to help him along now. Big thank you.' TR, Ayr 04/07/19
'Thanks so much for a fascinating session. We learned a lot in the time and Mack did too! We are getting started on things tonight and are determined to work together to help Mack as he is a super Beagle and we want the best for him. We will be taking full advantage of the the aftercare service you offer no doubt and many thanks again.'
LB & Family, Kilmaurs 23/09/2019
''Rosie has responded really
well to the suggestions made by Maya during the session and particularly well to the clicker training.
