Hi, my name is Jas, and I'm a fully insured, degree-qualified dog trainer and behaviourist working with dog owners in Hull and the surrounding areas and their dogs who display nervousness, reactivity, over-excitement, frustration, and those who just struggle with obedience.
I have a BSc (Hons) in Applied Animal Behaviour and Training, I'm a Provisional Member of the APBC, a Proud Member of the Pet Professional Guild, and approved for listing with The Initiative for Force Free Dog Training.
As a Provisional Member of the APBC, I have demonstrated that I have the appropriate level of Knowledge and Understanding for the professional role of Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CAB). I am now gaining the practical experience necessary to be assessed as a CAB and therefore become a Full Member of the APBC. The APBC supports its Provisional Members undertaking behaviour consultations.
Each of these memberships not only show that I train to a high standard, but that I have been assessed on my knowledge and training methods, and am held to the code of ethics of each of these organisations (as well as my own).
I offer behaviour modification for reactive, overexcitable, and generally behaviourally-challenged dogs, as well obedience classes and workshops.
I use only aversive-free training methods, and continually keep my knowledge up to date and evolving through attending seminars, workshops and courses.
I have a newfoundland called Freja, who I often use as a stooge for help with reactive dogs. She loves everyone she meets, so you have to watch out for the slobber!
My favourite part of my job is getting to see owners fall back in love with their dogs.
