I am proud to announce that I am now a Professional Member of the Pet professional Network.The Pet Professional Network is the first international business support organisations for force free pet professionals. They offer person centred support in all terms of mindset, personal and business development. They work in collaboration with modern world class training and behavioural institutes and associations, and are proud to be an Affiliate of ICAN (the International Companion Animal Network).Having undergone a personal assessment, ensuring I meet their high standards and force free philosophy, I have been invited to join their supportive community and will continue to receive ongoing group coaching.By being a member I am committed to giving my clients the best and most effective long-term support and will also encourage other professionals to reach out and help support each other, in a safe coaching environment.
Feeling extremely proud today as yesterday I passed the Absolute Dogs Pro Dog Trainer course, meaning that we can now offer games based concept training as well as obedience and behaviour work.
Through playing certain games we can develop concepts in your dog, such as confidence, or focus, or building value in being close to you for example. These games shape your dog's brain and ultimately their personality, so that they can then transfer these skills into everyday life and this will make the world a seem a much more enjoyable place to your dog - and you!!
We believe in a holistic approach to training and behaviour at Locke's Dogs, and as such we know that concept training will be massively beneficial to our clients.
