Pet Dog Services
When your best friend, family companion or soul mate is doing undesirable things, or simply won’t do desirable things, we can help.
The first steps are to find out what makes your dog sit up and pay attention, so Steve will be be looking for what your dog finds rewarding, and perhaps develop that with communication so your dog knows what you want, when you want it and what he or she will get when they do it.
Rewarding a dog (positive reinforcement) increases the dogs desire to repeat the behaviour, most people know this but few can get the relationship working on this premise.
Steve has developed loads of cool, fun programs and games that can help you reconnect with your dog and get training moving forwards.
When your dog is displaying behaviours that concern you or are perhaps unacceptable in our society or are plain dangerous, it’s important to see what is driving these problems first. A root cause analysis is an important step in solving these mysteries.
Dog Behaviour Problems can lead to: –
- Your lifestyle and freedom being effected.
- You suffering stress, embarrassment and or anxiety.
- Neighbour complaints and disputes.
- Council action, fines / restrictions.
- Family disruption / arguments / break ups.
- Injury to you, others, your dog or other dogs/animals.
- Performance decrease in dog sports.
- Seizure of your dog / legal action.
- The problem being learned by your other dogs.
- The problem becoming worse or even permanent.
Take action now!
The longer your dog rehearses the behaviour the more habitual it becomes. This means that as soon as you see a problem developing, address it right away.
The myth that a dog will grow out of a behaviour, just stop without your guidance etc. is just that, a myth.
Repetition is one of the most powerful reinforcers, if your dog is doing something that is even slightly concerning, avoid development of this problem by getting early intervention.
Extreme Dogs start somewhere.

What we won’t do…
We won’t have you making weird “Bah” sounds at your dog, rolling them on their backs or hissing like Cesar, we don’t believe that every problem is related to your leadership or the lack thereof.
We won’t leave you wondering what is next and we won’t leave you on your own.
After the initial consult we will forward you a written program specific to your dog and situation and we give you 8 weeks email support as well.
