    Hi all,

    Can anyone recomend a trainer/ handler that can help with aggression without using the harsh 'Ceasar' tequiques that are not natural to our domestic dogs??
    Realy need help in handling two large dogs at the same time, working with them on their own has been tried and as soon as they are back together they are back to square one.

    Many thanks

    Karinna with Binx and Maggie x

    Ps. must be close to Exeter area

    You could see if there is someone on the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) list local to you - its a good place to start as they promote "training skills and techniques based on up to date, researched, methods that apply the principles of kindness fairness and effectiveness and are in keeping with modern learning theory."

    You can search local dog trainers by county here and the listings state what services they offer, i.e. 1-to-1 sessions or home visits etc: Local Dog Trainers - Association of Pet Dog Trainers UK

    For a behaviourist, the best places to search are the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC): http://www.apbc.org.uk/ Search members by region here: http://www.apbc.org.uk/help/regions/

    "The APBC represents a network of behaviour counsellors that have achieved the highest proven academic and practical standards available in the field of companion animal behavioural therapy. APBC members abide by a strict code of conduct and continually develop their professional knowledge in the light of new research so that clients and the veterinary surgeons who refer them can be assured they receive the latest expert advice at a reasonable cost."

    Or the COAPE Association of Pet Behaviourists and Trainers (CAPBT): http://www.capbt.org/

    Find a local member: http://www.capbt.org/findbehaviourist-uk.php

    All of the above have strict codes of practice for their members to abide by.
