We build confidence in anxious dogs and in anxious dog guardians. We change behaviour by changing emotions, and we train cues with the kindness we want to see in the rest of the world.

Create a "Fun Not Fear®" based life with your dog.

At Locke's Dogs we wholly believe there is nothing that can be trained using punishments and aversives, that can't be trained with fun, apart from fear itself. All of our  methods are designed or adapted to mean that your dog is going to enjoy learning through games and rewards, and will never be disempowered or trained with force.

Similarly we believe all dog's humans should be treated with that same gentle care and respect, so we make learning enjoyable and accessible for you too.

Fun Not Fear® means asking one simple question before doing anything with your dog. "Will my dog and I enjoy this?". If the answer is "no" then we work out what we can do to help you and your dog to feel better about the experience or situation.  

We teach you the tools and knowledge you need to train your dog, away from classes and triggers, in the comfort of your own home, at a time to suit you, with the convenience and enhanced results of virtual 121 training

In creating a life of Fun Not Fear® you build a relationship based on trust and mutual enjoyment with your dog.

I can help you with:

  • Canine fears and phobias
  • 1-2-1 Puppy training and basic obedience
  • Behaviour issues
  • Practical help with learning to approach dog health professionals pet shops and dog service providers like walkers or groomers when you have struggles of your own with separation anxiety and similar issues
  • Building up you and your dog's confidence, improve their health and help you both enjoy your lives more fully using our Fun Not Fear® philosophy.
