I'm Adam Daines. Full UK member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, member of the Pet Professional Guild and a Victoria Stilwell Positively Dog Trainer.
Whether it’s basic training, a certain behaviour you’d rather live without, or professional guidance on how to get your training back on track, look no further. I'm a dog trainer and dog behaviourist, I offer dog training classes, dog behaviour sessions, basic training and home visits.
I strongly believe in positive reinforcement. That is why none of my training or behavioural alterations involves choke chains, pinch and shock collars or physical reprimands. Not only do these methods cause unnecessary suffering on the dog but also breaks the bond between dog and owner. If you're looking for a trainer that uses the above techniques then sadly you're in the wrong place. I wish you all the best, and look forward to welcoming you back within the next few months when those techniques have failed to work, or worse, resulted in more unwanted behaviours!
My work focuses on wanted and unwanted behaviour rather than good or bad behaviour. For instance, having a dog on the couch may be acceptable for one person, but not for another. By tailoring sessions around each of your needs you can be sure to get the best out of your dog.
I offer dog training and behavioural sessions in Bath, Bristol, Chipping Sodbury, Keynsham, Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Norton Radstock, Amesbury, Bradford on Avon, Biddestone, Calne, Corsham, Chippenham, Devizes, Highworth, Malmesbury, Marlborough, Melksham, Salisbury, Swindon, Trowbridge, Warminster, Westbury, Wooten Bassett and all surrounding areas. I've also travelled as far as London, Wales, Devon and Cornwall on request.
