There have been three things which I have found to be successful as a dog trainer working with problem dogs in real life situations

1 – Examining and understanding the function of behaviour - what is the dog hoping to achieve by doing that?

2 – Being excellent at our own movement - we are holding the leash and moving with our dogs, knowing how, where, when to move is vital

3 – Paying attention to the detail - it's not the big things which count, it's becoming increasingly better at all the little things and mastering them

  • The advice and dedication from this awesome trainer not only touches the lives of dogs in Scotland but the world over. From his films and to his open, willingness to help all dog owners in a manner which shows how kind he is, not only to dogs, but the the humans as well. I can’t recommend John more.

  • I wish John was closer to Poland! He is one of the best trainer I have met. He has a scientific knowledge which he can apply in practice. He is also a wonderful colleague any trainer can turn to for help! I would recommend him to anyone!

  • Had one visit from John so far, his clear explanations to the theory behind the training methods has made it easier for me to change my approach to my dog for the better. Noticing an improvement in behaviour after only 48 hours.

  • I hosted John for a seminar here in Vancouver and he very kindly offered to work with me and my dog while he was here. I found him to be kind, compassionate, empathetic, non judgemental and very good at reading dogs and people. He works well with both ends of the leash and I highly recommend him if you need any help at all with your dog.
