Why 4 Paws?
Whether you are a new dog owner or just need a bit of guidance to help with a specific issue, 4Paws dog training can help.
It can be daunting not knowing what to do when you have a dog showing some unwanted or worrying behaviour. I provide consultations to fully discuss your situation and then we work together to introduce manageable training.
I am a member of the IMDT (institute of modern dog training) and have attended numerous courses over the past few years.
I am passionate and dedicated about providing the best advice and all training is reinforcement based with no ‘forced’ techniques.
4Paws Dog Training highly recommends this harness!
4Paws advises owners, new and old to use a harness instead of a collar for walks. This prevents damage to your dog’s neck and vocal cords.
The Perfect Fit Harness is great for training loose lead walking with the use of a double ended lead. More info: www.dog-games.co.uk
4Paws stocks the most common sizes (20mm) and provides a fitting and advisory service.
