I am Tony Avard and have been involved with dogs all my life, I can't imagine life without them and animals & wild life in general.
I have, by many, many years experience and much ongoing study attained an understanding of what is required to achieve that much wanted human/canine relationship which is so rewarding for all concerned when it is correct and balanced.
I offer, within the East Kent area, one to one behavioral sessions via a home visit at a time convenient to the client. I am willing to work outside the area mentioned for pre agreed fees.For home visits within 10 miles of Dover, Kent, the fees will be between £65 and £80. Sessions will last normally from two to three hours.I am available via phone and email for any follow up advice and support.
I am not attached to any franchise so I use tried and tested methods of my own choice to improve your dogs behaviour to suit you.
Behaviour exhibited by dogs is normally something that their owners either wish to see repeated because they like it or they find the behaviour is unacceptable because it does not fall comfortably within our human society rulebook.
I think it is widely accepted that we do not like being embarassed by our supposed best friend's unwanted behaviour whether in public or at home when guests visit.
Problem canine behaviour is obviously varied, some causing serious concern e.g aggression etc. and some less so.It is wise to seek help sooner rather than later.
In basic terms, when a dog carries out a behaviour, the influence as to whether that behaviour will be repeated or phased out will depend on whether the dog receives any reward for it.
If you are concerned regarding your dogs behaviour, whatever it is, please do contact me and arrange a visit at a time to suit you.
None of my methods involve punishment and are all carried out in a calm, friendly and consistant manner.
Finally: "Treat your dog like a human and it will treat you like a dog"
