Do you have trouble finding the time for walking your dog? Do you feel guilty about leaving them alone when you return to work?
Does your dog fail to listen to you when out and about?
Are walks becoming less than enjoyable because you don't trust your dog to behave off-lead?
Is your dog missing out because of lockdown? - They don't have to! Many common behavioural problems can occur when dogs routine is upset. But we are here to help! We can provide exercise, socialisation and structure to your dogs day so that they return home happy and tired.
If your dog walks are becoming less than enjoyable - don't panic! I felt the same way for many years with my own dogs. Walking them was not the enjoyable country walk (followed by a well-deserved drink in the pub) I had imagined. I had nervous and reactive dogs who were constantly hard work. Luckily by working for years to understand them, I have learnt valuable lessons to get dogs to focus more so owners can enjoy walks again. I have been in your shoes, frustrated and longing for my dog to behave.
I am Elise, the Queen of Canine Confidence, providing extra attention to those dogs who need confidence boosting and their owners who fear to let dogs off lead. Our walks offer an exclusive programme of change, allowing you to re-connect with your dog and enjoy your lives together.
We are much more than the average dog walker!
Your dog means the world to us
If your dog pulls like an ox when out for a walk or fails to listen to you when you need them to, we are here to help.
We specialise in dogs who need that extra bit of help. If they do not listen to you, have poor recall or are nervous and in need of confidence building, we are happy to work with you to create a better life for you and your dog.
Does your dog lunge at other dogs in the street? Do you feel like you are not in control? We offer a variety of classes to help get you and your dog back on track. From obedience training to agility and dog sports, our training sessions will help teach your dog or puppy how to behave and excel.
My current dog Mylo was a reactive rescue dog who had missed vital socialisation by being locked in a kitchen. He was feral, he couldn't walk on a lead. He lunged, barked and wanted to bite any dog he saw as a threat. After rescuing him, I threw myself into training him. It took a long time (and many mistakes) to get him to where he is now - a vital member of our team! He comes out on our adventure treks and helps me with the other dogs. He isn't perfect and still has a lot of character but he isn't the wild beast I took on years ago. He has a best friend called Polly who is a border terrier and they are inseparable.
Dogs mean everything to me, but through my own experiences with nervous and reactive rescues, my aim is to help owners build better relationships with their dog. Through understanding, trust, respect and love.
