Happy Leader Dog Training


After one private session you will be well on your way to having your dream dog. Lissie will teach you leadership skills and help you understand dog behaviour and language. You will be able to meet your dog’s needs more effectively and your dog will want to do what you say because it respects you and your leadership role. It will feel safe and secure having a clear leader and therefore many anxious, aggressive or destructive behaviors will disappear. Calm will return to your house and your walks. Please remember respect does not come from fear or cruelty. It comes from having a confident, calm energy and providing a safe, fun and calm environment where the dog can trust you implicitly.

Lissie also understands and can explain to you clearly how dogs actually learn and how to teach them using positive and fun methods.

So, in one session you will: A) develop a relationship where your dog listens to you and wants to do what you want, B) be able to communicate with your dog properly and C) be able to teach new skills to them quickly and effectively.
