Aggression

Aggression is scary, stressful & embarrassing!

  • Walking my dog has become a nightmare. I can’t let him off the lead I am so worried that he is going to attack another dog!
  • Visitors won’t come to my house – they are frightened of my dog!
  • My dog snaps when I take his food or toys away!
  • I am worried about the police getting involved!

Why does aggression happen?

Your dog isn’t being vicious or nasty – he’s frightened! Aggression is his way of coping with something or someone of whom he is frightened. Mostly he is using this behaviour to make that scary thing go away.

Fear and aggression can happen because the dog had a bad experience which frightened him such as being attacked; being badly socialised; because he finds the world a scary place or something as simple as being accidentally hurt. These are just a few examples and there are many more.

Imagine if your dog could…

  • stop barking and lunging
  • calmly walk past dogs and people on the street or in the park
  • greet your visitors without causing chaos
  • enjoy being petted
  • enjoy going to the vet
  • not mind you near coming near when there is food or toys

Don’t worry – I can help!

Using kind, force-free training and behaviour modification methods I can help your dog change his view of the world so he is no longer fearful and if he is not frightened he is not going to be aggressive. I systematically help your dog change his frame of mind helping him to cope with his fears and stop feeling that aggression is his only alternative.

Your Training Programme

  • Begin by calling me for a FREE chat so I can get an idea of your problem
  • I come to your home to meet you, your family and your dog – this gives me the opportunity to get a full understanding of the problem and learn ‘what makes your dog tick’. I will also leave you with written advice to get you going
  • You receive a comprehensive written programme detailing why your dog or cat behaves the way he does and what we can do about it including detailed written handouts of all appropriate training protocols
  • Through an on line diary system I will provide you with weekly (sometimes daily) instructions on what to do next. I will also monitor your progress and advise accordingly
  • Over and above this I will be available through email, phone and video conferencing to support you throughout the process
  • If necessary we will meet to work together in real life situations

We will work together for 8 weeks or more if needed until your dog’s problems are sorted out. Every dog is an individual as is every owner so every programme is devised on a bespoke, individual basis. As such the fee structure for my work will vary. After our initial free chat I will be able to let you know what the fees will be for your specific case.

progress has been amazing

quoteIngrid came to see us and discussed Bella’s issues in detail. She taught us to understand why Bella was guarding and how to manage and gave us a programme to work on the issue. Having this knowledge has helped us immensely to stop all guarding. It’s only been a short while but the progress so far has been amazing. Ingrid’s ongoing support is fantastic with weekly updates and feedback which really helps. quote

quoteIngrid has been a great help with our Lakeland terrier. He developed fear based aggression and became almost unmanageable around other dogs. Ingrid gave us a framework to understand what he was going through and a range of techniques to help him feel safe again. He's now a much happier dog and our home life has improved. We feel much more confident that we're on the right track and things are getting better all the time.quote

quoteIngrid has helped so much with my cat Artie. He had become very aggressive - biting and scratching and having tantrums. Ingrid helped me to change his bad habits. Artie is back to being the sweet loving cat he was before. Thank you, Ingridquote
