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 only progressive techniques designed to help both your dog and you towards a happier future together. All techniques practiced by me are compassionate, non-intrusive and are based on positive reinforcement.
All breeds of dogs benefit from positive behaviour training so whether your dog is a pup, mature, elderly or a rescue he can be guided towards exchanging unwanted conduct for positive behaviour giving both him and you a more fulfilling life together.
'Very helpful session. We gained valuable insight into Rufus' behaviour . Couldn't believe he learned new cues so quickly! Seeing it from a different perspective and following the programme will make a huge difference for Rufus and for us. Thanks so much.'

'The session was very relaxed. Maya is very good at putting pupil and myself at ease. I have put the new training programme in place and Heidi is improving every day.' PJ, Darvel 19/07/2018
'Can't believe how well this girl is doing! Even after her injury rest - boom! Skye is back better and more eager to learn than ever!'

'So glad I got this training for us! I feel so much happier being actually shown physically what I should be doing with her and she responds so well too. Absolutely delighted and thanks so much Maya.'

'I love this type of training and Hudson loves it too! I can see so much improvement in the biting and in the toilet training in the space of days and Hudson is not stressed with the changes or with the training methods and that is the best thing of all Thanks Maya for your patience in showing me what to do.'

'Superb! In a very short time Suzi was relaxed and watching the birds outside, not trying to jump at them and her barking is already calming down. Yes, we have work to do but we know what we are doing now and I know we will all get there. I enjoyed the 'critical distance' information too. Thanks Maya.'

'Puppy Workshop's been great for Duke and I love the extra information too. I've been given some great ideas to help Duke find his place in his new home with us and I'm sure he (and us) will do fine. Thanks so much.' KK, Kilbirnie, 03/08/2018
'Oliver is a lovely dog with only 2 issues really so it was good to spend the session homing in on what is required to help Oliver become less reactive when outdoors and to pull less on-leash, to make him easier to walk for all the family. Discussing the importance of 'training in tandem' made a lot of sense and we are ready to move forward with Oliver's new training strategies. A valuable session. Thank you.'

Both Colin & I feel very positive about training now we know what we are doing with Otto. Otto has had 3 training outings since we got home and he didn't get worked up at all - just a wee bark at a person and a sheep. Once again thank you so much for your help. M&C Lewis, Castle Douglas, 23/03/2018

'We've had dogs before but wanted to make sure we are on the right track with these adorable rescues. Session was crammed full of info and practical exercises for us to take part in with the dogs. Very helpful and we learned a lot. J&MK, Prestwick, 11/09/2018
