5 Top Toilet Training Tips!

I have an 8 week old Cavachon but am struggling to get her to stop peeing in her bed and in the house. I’m trying  regular toilet breaks but it’s hard if she is asleep in her crate at night etc. I’m buying the Oder remover spray today and I use a single word when

How To Avoid Evening Puppy Zoomies!

Every night around 7pm-9pm our dog goes loopy. She gets over excited for no reason and is starting to get snappy while she is at it barking and appearing quite aggressive. We have tried ignoring it, distracting her, putting her in her crate which she then tears about. The rest of the day she is

Self Control Exercise: Permission To Eat!

I’d like our dogs to realise that access to all the things they love are provided by us and that they can be earned by doing simple tasks. This improves their focus and levels of self-control as they learn that in order to get something that they want, they need to do something that we want.

Struggle to get your dog on lead at the end of a walk?

I can remember having this problem with the first family dogs I engaged in training. Our two terriers were smart, clever little dogs who always seemed to be two steps ahead of me. Frustrating for a new dog trainer who was learning herself! I knew that I wanted to use rewards in my training and

Why should I insure my dog?

Perhaps the question should be – why NOT insure your dog? Because does anyone want to be in the position of making difficult decisions about the treatment plan of their beloved dog with the financial aspect looming large in the background? I know I don’t – quite frankly it’s stressful enough seeing them ill or

Why dog training is just simple maths!

Each and every day a dog impresses me with some aspect of their intelligence. One particular skill that I think they’re very good at is their ability to count the number of treats they’ve been given for a particular task – or the lack of them 😉 You see dogs aren’t so different to us.

When’s the right time for your next puppy?

This question should really sit alongside questions such as “How long is a piece of string?” 😉 Perhaps the question isn’t just “When’s the right time?” but more, what other factors are involved in making the decision. Financial – can I afford the best food, training, insurance and veterinary care for this new puppy or

Sofa snuggles – what are your rules?

Personally speaking I like nothing better than a cuddle with one of my dogs on the sofa at the end of a long day 🙂 But I can see why people don’t always let their dogs join them on the sofa – and I respect their reasons for doing so. It’s all about personal preference.

Dog Walks: Cadbury Hill, Congresbury

I’m sure local dog owners will agree with me in saying that this hill fort that overlooks the village of Yatton, is a lovely place to walk your dog. I have always accessed the hill via the car park at the bottom of the hill which is at the end of Henley Lane (see image below).

Dog Walks: Ashcombe Woods, Weston-Super-Mare

This is one of my favourite woods to walk the dogs in, as there is so much to explore – plus the great disabled track around the woods is perfect for both children’s buggy’s and wheelchairs/ disability scooters alike. The woods are beautiful at every season in the year, and the changing landscape makes it such
