Tom is based in Romford in Essex and has worked as a professional dog trainer for 8 years. As well as running weekly training classes for pet dog owners, Tom also instructs for the British Rottweiler Association. For owners who have more serious problems than a dog that pulls on their leash, Tom offers private one to one dog training sessions. This is ideal for any owner who feels that a class situation would not be suitable for their dog, or who have tried going to training classes but still have issues. These issues may be aggression, fear or any number of behaviour problems common in dogs.
All dog breeds are different and Tom has worked with everything from 10 stone Rottweilers to tiny Chihuahua's. It is a popular misconception that small dogs aren't dangerous. Under the Dangerous Dogs Act, any dog that is deemed to be out of control in a public place can be classed as a dangerous dog. In the worst cases dogs who are out of control can end up being put down, when with the right training they could have been saved.
On a more positive note the best time to start training is when your dog is a puppy (although it is never too late). If you are thinking of buying a puppy, or have just bought a puppy then going to dog training classes will not only help you to socialise your puppy, it will also teach you how to train your puppy.
