Get to know and handle your dogs better with dog training from Good Dogs!

<?xml version="1.0"?>

 


Does your dog:

• Pull on the Lead?
• Bark Incessantly?
• Have Separation Anxiety?
• Jump Up?
• Have Nervousness?
• Have Aggression with people or other dogs?
• Think he/she is the boss?

Learn how to become the pack leader in the eyes of your dog using a kind, confident and hugely effective method.


East Grinstead dog trainer Sharon Bolt from Good-Dogs! has a unique approach towards dog behaviour. She teaches you, not your dog!



Your dog looks for someone who will make decisions and lead them when they are out on the walk; unlike humans they do not want equality but need to know where they fit in the hierarchy of the pack in order to be relaxed and well behaved.


When no-one convinces them that they are good for the 'top dog' position your dog assumes that role and that's when the unwanted behaviours start!


Sharon teaches you how to meet your dog's expectations in a canine way so they relinquish the Pack Leader role and relax, knowing that you are taking care of them. When this happens, training is very effective and soon the unwanted behaviours disappear.

Good Dogs! Workshops


Sharon holds regular one day 'Dog Training For Humans' workshops in Crawley where she empowers dog owners to become the best Pack Leaders and explains how to stop unwanted dog behaviours - fast.


"Attending Sharon's one-day induction Good Dogs! workshop is probably the best treat I ever gave my dog. I found the content interesting and enjoyable as well as being so practical. I came away with tools to use at home and outside, overnight our dog became calmer. I feel all three of us enjoy our new roles having been given the freedom to relax and we are all happier now the humans are the boss. I have signed up for the five day advanced course and I can't wait!"

Keri Allen, Worthing



 

Sharon also runs an exclusive Good Dogs! 5 Day Advanced Course for people who have a desire to become a dog trainer or learn more in depth information about canine communication.

Sharon believes the best way to learn is to roll up your sleeves and get involved yourself, which is why there are so many hands on approaches and situations during the Good Dogs! 5 Day Course.


In fact by the end of the five days the participants have been involved with five 'real-life' consultations working with owners and their dogs. No other dog training course offers this type of confidence boosting experience.

Robbie Clarke from Morecombe, Lancs wrote:

"The practical areas were a priceless experience and worth the course price alone, given the results and confidence built."

Sharon also believes that small groups are more beneficial to the participants as it enables her to give each person individual attention, support and direction. This course is by application and invitation only.

This is an excellent course, it was presented very clearly and I liked the use of the videos and handouts so that we have something to refer back to. The venue and food are excellent, such a lovely setting and relaxed atmosphere. I would not hesitate to recommend this course to all our dog customers.

Five amazing days, the days went too quickly! The presentation was top class – well constructed with plenty of excellent handouts. The venue couldn’t be in a better place, the food was superb and cooked by lovely Hazel. I would definitely recommend this course to anybody. Thank you Sharon for letting me come on this course, I’ve learned so much and I feel very privileged to have been included. Sharon is the best!

Thank you so much for inviting me on the Advance Course. I now fully understand what my dog is telling me and I have learnt so many ways to improve my leadership with my dog. I feel very confident with the knowledge I have received during these 5 days that I can hold my own consultations. The venue was so lovely and the food was fantastic! I would without a doubt recommend this course to anyone who would like to know more about pack mentality and leadership and/or who would like to become a dog behaviourist.

The 5 Day Course met all my expectations and more. Sharon’s explanations were very clear and to the point. I would recommend this course to anybody who is interested in starting their own business or just wants to know more about their dog’s behaviour and how to communicate to their dog in a way they understand.

I loved the 5 day course, every minute of it, I am so grateful to you for not only teaching me about dogs but also thinking out of the box and getting the marketing together! It was a unique course for me in that there was nothing you said that didn’t resonate completely and utterly with my own philosophy that will work for the rest of my life, let alone dog work!

I want to let you know how thrilled I am that I came across your website, because I have learned so much and it's all so simple and practical and makes such sense. My husband and I have always rescued German Shepherds, which is rewarding within itself, but it has at times been difficult when trying to overcome some of the dogs behaviour issues (if only I had known about you then)! We have, thanks to you an amazing well behaved, well balanced GSD who is a pleasure to walk, is well socialised and house trained and it's all thanks to you. I've joined your Good Dogs! Membership Site which not only has all the practical advice, but there are also the videos as well. Plus the forums where like minded people can share their doggy moments and you yourself are on the forum answering questions which is an enormous bonus. You understand both dogs and their owners and your practical advice works every time, you are a caring, gentle person who wants to share with others the enormous joy that is to be had when owner and dog have a balanced relationship, and it is joyful thanks to you .

I just wanted to thank you for the miracle that you have performed with my two dogs. I now have two dogs that I love and enjoy. In February, I thought that I would have to get rid of one of them and, at times, would have been glad to see the back of both of them. Your advice has stopped the vicious fights that were becoming ever-more frequent and dangerous. What I really admired was the way that you were prepared to get down on the floor and tackle Bertie when he was snarling, ready to bite and potentially very dangerous. It was also the fact that you didn't come and tell me a set of rules: you adapted your advice to suit my individual dogs and their behaviour. You really thought on your feet and reacted to the problems that they presented. If I think about all the money that I have spent in buying two pedigree puppies, their beds, toys, injections, crates, training, insurance etc, the cost of your services seems very good value indeed.

I just wanted to say a big thank-you for training us and Nelly & Doris. We can't believe the changes! Doris has gone from a hyper, barking, dog hating puppy, following me around everywhere, to a calm, dog liking puppy! Nelly has gone from a timid, nervous dog scared of paper! to be much more relaxed and friendly. We are thrilled at the outcome and great approach you've had towards us and our dogs and would advise any one to do this training.

I just had to write to say thank you. Since your visit I have got my lovely dog, Bonnie, and my life back! Peace reigns! Your technique works like magic, it is a miracle! (and worth every penny!) I couldn't be more pleased.

Having no previous experience of owning and training a dog, we could have spent months studying books on dog behaviour. What we did do was the best investment and had a consultation with Sharon Bolt. When we had finished our session, it was as though we had read several books in one sitting. Sharon taught us that the key to understanding a dog was to forget about trying to fit our human psychology to our dog and taught us how to understand our dog's way of thinking instead. It was fascinating we felt we were experts after just one session. Headley has grown into a delightful, lovely-natured and fun-loving teenager. For anyone who invests in a dog, a session with Sharon is the next best investment you can make.
