DOG TRAINING

Does your dog's behaviour cause you stress & anxiety? Do you feel like you've lost control? Does your dog pull on the lead? Ignore you when you call him? Lunge & bark at other dogs? Jump up? Does your dog lack confidence or seem anxious about the world around them?

All of these issues can be addressed with professional help.

 I will -

  • help you understand why your dog is behaving as he is
  • teach you how to get more of the behaviour you want and less of the behaviour you don't (kindly)
  • teach you how to help your dog feel more confident and relaxed
  • help you feel more confident, in control & relaxed when you are out with your dog
  • treat you and your dog with empathy, kindness and honesty
  • provide you with ongoing support while we are working together
I won't -
  • judge you or your dog
  • use aversive or harsh training techniques
  • make you unrealistic promises or create unrealistic expectations

Teaching your dog takes time and commitment and so I only provide ongoing training programmes which offer continued support and are tailored to you & your dog as opposed to one off sessions. There are no ethical quick fixes to change ingrained behaviour and a programme which offers ongoing support gives the most effective results for you and your dog.

If this sounds like the kind of help you are looking for please get in touch. I'd love to help you.


"Aileen has been a blessing! Our rescue Mylo has been terrified by the fireworks and has not went further than 10ft from our front door this year. After 3 sessions, a lot of hot dogs and patience our little pudding went for a 40 minute walk!! I never thought it was possible but he was off like a shot and we have not stopped smiling since. Fantastic does not even cover it and I would not hesitate to recommend Aileen to anyone! From one very happy and grateful family, thank you again!!"

Tamlyn Tait

"We’ve had Monty, a Romanian rescue for three years, and he has settled in generally very well to life in Scotland. Aileen has been a fantastic help to us with a couple of issues we’ve had - she has helped us strengthen Monty’s recall which can be very selective especially if there are other dogs around. And she’s helped us to recognise signs of anxiety and stress in Monty particularly when there are visitors to the house, and strategies to help us help him in those situations.
Aileen gives very clear, considered and sensible advice, and her love of dogs shines through. I would highly recommend The Perfect Puppy Company"

Lorna Mitchell

"I would highly recommend Aileen. She is such a nice person who genuinely cares about dogs. Her approach is gentle and kind and not hardcore, military boot camp style. She realises your dog is part of the family and her training style reflects this. I was so lucky to land on Aileen’s page first when looking for a trainer and we’ve had three wonderful sessions. I feel well equipped with knowledge and confidence now"
