Charlotte

Published on the 21st December’16

Charlotte was born blind, she was rescued from an environment where she was left to her own devices. She was re-homed and her new owner has done amazingly well with her.

Unfortunately it seems she was not lead walked and was really struggling with the littlest of sounds around her. So my job today was to help her relax on her walk and with Tarns help we achieved our goal

Walk with Paul Daly December 2016

Published on the 13th December’16

You have seen our larger socialisation walks but are not sure that you/your dog would cope with such a large group.

Read More

I am purposely keeping the group small in order that I can work with each owner during the session. Think of it as a mini 121. It is more personal than our larger walks.

We already know that dogs can benefit from being with other dogs. We are now taking bookings for the next walk in January.

Puppy Play Day

Going to really miss Albie

Having spent two weeks with Albie and seeing him grow in confidence and watch his behaviour change I am really going to miss him.

He has so much to give and wants to give which is the most important element. Good luck Albie.

121 Consultation Day

I would like to thank Rachel for giving us this amazing opportunity to use her venue for the day. We had a great day and met some lovely people who really showed they want to help their dogs.

Poppy

Be sad to see Poppy go home tomorrow, she has been staying with me now for two weeks and I think she has had a good time.

Everything we have done with Albie has lead us to this one defining moment.

Repetition, Repetition 

We have been working with Albie for 7 days now and the results are easy to see. Dogs only learn by repetition so the key to Albies success is through repeating the same exercise over and over again until it becomes just a natural behaviour…

Albie & Tarn

Slowly introducing Albie to new dogs was the plan of action. We can walk past as many dog as we like in the park but I can only use my own dogs to truly help him. We started with Thor and now Tarn who is my senior behavioural assessment dog….

Albie Did Me Proud 

Having watched Albie go from strength to strength in just a short time, today he joined me at The Walk With Paul Daly. I am so proud of him as he did not put a foot wrong and his behaviour was exceptional. Albie did me proud and that is what makes my job worthwhile

Canine Coaching Social Walk – Sept’16

Exercise and socialisation is important for any dog but particularly for those that have not previously been given the opportunity to interact with their own kind. One of the most common behaviours worked with is reactivity towards other dogs.

Read More

Many dedicated owners will engage the services of a good behaviourist; other dogs do not receive corrective training and can find themselves in rescue when the owners are no longer able to cope.

A canine social walk is an excellent way to socialise your dog and meet like minded people. Paul Daly, a trainer and behaviourist of 20+ years, is on hand throughout the walk to balance the group and guide you with your dog’s behaviour.

The walks are all on lead and lasts approximately 1.5 hours. We do take breaks during the walk to re-group. Paul and his team are on hand to ensure that the walk runs smoothly.

Heading in the Right Direction Now

Having now got a reasonable control of Lola’s anxiety we can concentrate on the dog to dog issues now…

First Full Day Out with Lola

So this is from yesterday, we have now fully assessed Lola and now need to move her forward one tiny step at a time…

Canine Coaching Puppy Play

We are very excited about welcoming you to our puppy classes, held at Scooby’s Doggy Day Care. As this facility offers you the chance to work and watch your dog develop through interaction and activity based play under the guidance of myself, Paul Daly Behaviourist, and team.
We will also have access for those puppies that love the outdoors, to 3000 square feet of secure outside area. We believe that this will improve the overall experience that is Puppy Play Day for both owners and Dogs.
With the diversity of the all weather facility it means that you need never miss another Puppy Play Day date ever again.

Her Name Is Lola 

Her name is Lola and she is with me for two weeks, she has issues but these can be worked on but first we need to create calm for her….

Huge Step Forward for Lola

This was a huge step forward for Lola, just to walk with the boys is a massive achievement for her…

Heading in the Right Direction with Lola 

As we continue to move forward each day Lola has started to learn not all dogs want to hurt her..

Brampton Valley Way Social Walk

Here it is guys the official video from Saturdays Social Walk. We have always prided ourselves in giving you the opportunity to see and experience new places. This is where Canine Coaching Social Walks differ from any others in the area. When you walk your dog in the same place week in week out it becomes their home territory and yes they may behave in that one place but the training may become difficult when you change location. Each month we change our location for that reason….

Thor and Dexter

My Job is about understanding dogs and knowing how to get the best out of them. Over the next few days I have Dexter staying with me, he has been giving his owner cause for concern with his reactions on lead towards dogs. As you can see here though he is embracing the attention from Thor and actually initiating play. Brilliant to watch and experience the change in such a short time.

Challenging Lola 

Lola has had issues with other dogs for some time now. Watching her and listening to her, this behaviour is coming from an excited anxiety. So we have started the process of challenging that state of mind to achieve our first goal of her avoiding conflict with other dogs…..

Another great day at the Park

Lets Play

Dexter’s confidence with other dogs is building

Abington Park with Sophie and Tarn

Another massive step forward for Sophie…

Introducing Dexter to Tarn

Creating a single bond with one dog is great but to truly re socialise Dexter we must keep introducing him to more dogs. So yesterday Dexter met Tarn my behavioural assessment dog and his confidence this time was high with him instantly play gesturing.

Poppy 

Meet Poppy who exhibits some nervous, anxious behaviours when out on the walk.
She has joined me for a few days while her owners are away on holiday.

Interactive Demonstration At Bark In The Park

As all the shows I visit my demonstrations are not about me and my dogs, they are about you and your dogs…

Canine Workshops (TLC Workshop)

More people are living in or around towns these days and this often results in street or public park walking for our dogs. If you lack confidence, are not enjoying your dog walks or have a nervous, anxious, fearful or reactive dog this presents its own challenges. Many guardians find themselves confining their dog walking activities to times when they are less likely to encounter stressful situations. Canine Coaching have developed unique two hour canine workshops that will help you to control your dog confidently and effectively whilst socialising your dog at the same time.

This workshop will included;

On lead guided walks between and around various parks in Rushden

Street walking to include through Rushden town centre mid Saturday morning when there is much activity and distractions

Helping you with your awareness of your surroundings and how to avoid potential conflict

Teaching you how to recognise body language and your dog’s energy levels

Guiding you in how to create calm through lead walking

How to control your dog and keep him/her safe whilst out and about

Mentoring you in confident ownership of situations

Throughout this workshop we will where assessing the reactions of each dog to given situations and providing you with advice

Working together as a group is essential for all our canine workshops. Recognising that you are not alone with any challenges that your dog may present you with will help relieve some of the pressure that you may feel. Once you are more relaxed, your dog will follow.

This workshop was open to dogs with or without behavioural issues and gave a unique look into how you personally interpret and control situations and how I as a behaviourist, would interpret and control those situations.

Dog Bite Prevention

Aggression is the most challenging problem we face as a behaviourist. We can be working with people who still love their dogs even though they are aggressive; others want to opt out instantly from their relationship with their animal. The problems arise when some people in their attempts to make things better with their dog may inadvertently pander to a controlling mindset of their dog. Other dog owners that are facing the same sort of issues may return the hostility towards their dog. None of these emotion-charged responses improves a dogs aggressive behaviour and biting is the most serious of all behaviours. This is a very complex area of behavior.

In this video I am dealing with a dog that is kennels guarding and not allowing me to place the lead on him. Bite prevention is the key to a successful rehabilitation.

What is Prey Drive

You do not need a pack of dogs to create a pack driven dog.
You are the pack and your dog should be driven by what you say and do.

Prevention & Stopping livestock chasing

Most dog owners that have dogs that chase livestock are generally responsible dog owners that have just lost control. They are generally deeply upset and very concerned that this has happened.

Walk with Paul Daly Workshop

To some people a dog walk in the park is easy but for many it can become a challenge. Here at Canine Coaching we understand the day to day challenges some people face and have developed a series of workshops to help.

Read More

Prey drive is a common and is a natural behaviour in dogs, we as owners need to learn how o change this behaviour around to gain more control of our dogs in public parks.
A dog that is pack driven is driven by us, we are the pack and as a dog becomes more pack driven rather than prey driven the more they focus on what we want them to be doing not what they want to do
Be aware I am not using any collars, clickers, food rewards. I am using my body language and my energy to encourage the dogs to focus and trust me.

What they need is to know how to stop livestock chasing! What they do not understand is they are already holding the tool in their hand.

Chasing is perfectly normal enjoyable natural behaviour for any dog. Unfortunately dogs do not see their owners that are faced with this behaviour going through trauma and despair as they call and run after them hoping their dog will not be shot.

To the farmer dogs chasing livestock is devastating and means financial loss and emotional trauma. Farmer do not want to have to deal with trauma based abortion, wounds, stress induced illness, and the expensive disposal of sheep. They also have no desire to shot your dog and many farmer are dog lovers themselves.

How to stop livestock chasing while dogs are in high drive and experiencing a rush of pleasure isn’t that difficult and we have no need for expensive and immoral tools either.

In my twenty five years experience, I have met and worked with just a few dogs that are high predatory chasers.

The majority of dogs actually chase livestock because they want the to race or play not kill and eat. From a dogs point of view those sheep jumping and running are intoxicating and very exciting.

My methods of preventing controlling or to stop livestock chasing does not take a lot of time or effort.

Watch this video and them like it and comment below, let me know what you think.

During our workshop we were presented with many different issues including lead pulling, excitable barking, through to aggression.

By the end of the session we had helped every owner to see their dog’s behaviour differently and by changing just a few simple methods during the dog walk, they all went away with a clear picture and a different and more positive attitude.

The Law does not Define

A Well Trained Dog

A well trained dog is defined by you. A trainer and behaviorist s there to help you not define what we believe a well trained dog. My believe would be if the human defines what they want from a dog we would end up with fewer dogs ending up in shelters and rescues.

Without proper understanding, many dog owners are likely to allow their dogs to misbehave because they have no clear definition of what they want from them.

Read More

It is down to the owner, because they live with the dog on a day to day basis. Living with a dog with behavioural challenges is difficult and is no one’s idea of fun. Ultimately every dog owner should have a picture in their mind of what they define to be a well trained dog.

A well trained dog is a pleasure to be around and can go virtually anywhere with you and does not pose any risk to others. Thats how it should be and we should all want a dog who exhibits appropriate behaviour and good manners. in any given situation

The bottom line is that define a well trained dog truly benefits everyone. There is no one right way to do this and all definition will be different but the end goal remains the same.
