Knowledge, experience and a personal approach
With more than 20 years of experience working with dogs of many different breeds, ages and backgrounds, our head trainer, Thea, is known for her caring and compassionate approach to helping owners to get the best from their dogs.
“Thea has been wonderful with our Weimaraner/Labrador puppy who at 6 months had become too big and boisterous for me to handle competently. She has been endlessly patient with me trying to get to grips with training methods. He is responding well to loose lead walking and clicker training and I know it is now down to me to consolidate all her advice and continue her good work.”

“Getting in touch with Thea at Positive Dog was the best thing we have ever done. Our dog Dusky was always running off but after just a few weeks with Thea we can now take him off the lead and he comes back every time. I cannot thank Thea enough.”

“We had a fab morning with Thea. She is so informative and gets you to think about why your dog does what he does so this means you can work out how best to adjust his behaviour with positive effects. We were able to recognise his different behaviours and this will definitely enable us to help Bertie with his anxieties and control situations which make him nervous.”

“She’s there whenever you need her with support, advice and encouragement. I really can’t praise her enough and wouldn’t be the very happy dog owner I am today. Thank you Thea."
SUE & FRAYA (SAINT BERNARD)
“Her approach is sensitive and caring and she is a joy to learn from. I cannot recommend or thank her enough.”
