It has been scientifically proven that dogs learn quicker when learning through play!

My name is Claire and I have been passionate about dogs all of my life and always had a keen interest in dog training. However, my interest deepened when I got a puppy who was different from all the other dogs I had known. This dog was anxious and worried about everything and the whole world was a scary place, which often meant she acted in a negative and defensive manner. I have attended many different courses and come across a variety of different training methods in my journey to find a way to help her, some better than others.
I then came across AbsoluteDogs and found a way to train that was kind, fun and made complete sense to me. Determined to do the very best for all of my dogs I worked hard to become a Certified ProDog Trainer in 2019 and a ProDog Geek in 2021, I have loved every minute of sharing my knowledge with others ever since. Training through concepts and games is fun and grows the relationship and bond you have with your dog.
