Getting a new puppy can be quite daunting. It is a steep learning curve for you and your puppy. You are both finding out about each other and one of your responsibilities as a puppy parent is to teach your pup about the world around him and how to behave. My puppy classes are aimed at teaching Life skills, basics and having fun whilst learning. Classes are on Friday evenings at Edelsborough Memorial Hall.
Puppy 121s are also available for puppies that find classes a little overwhelming.
Are you at the end of your tether? Are walks no longer enjoyable? Afraid to take your dog out? Does your dog bark and lunge at other dogs? Do you need a solution to these and other behavioural problems?
These are just some of the behaviours that I am asked to help with. As a fully accredited trainer with the IMDT, and continuing to study canine behaviour, I can help you to understand your dog better and why he is behaving the way he is. I offer bespoke behavioural training to modify or lessen the behavioural problem.
Is your dog pulling you along the road on a walk? Do you want to have more control? Do you want to get more focus from your dog? No Recall? No problem!
My 121s are bespoke training for your dog's particular training issue, such as loose lead walking, recall training, stopping the jumping up. General advice on training issues, equipment, diet and exercise, settling in a new dog or rescue dog.
Puppy 121s are also available for those puppies that are not suited to classes.
Hello and welcome to my website. My name is June Quinn aka The Lady Dog Whisperer. How can I help you? Are you having problems with your dog pulling you along the road, not coming back when called? Are walks no longer enjoyable because your dog is barking and lunging at other dogs? Do you want to get your new puppy off to a great start? With 9 years worth of Study in canine behaviour with the IMDT and CIDBT, you can be confident that I can help you to achieve a more positive outcome for you and your dog.
My name is June Quinn and I am a dog trainer and behaviourist and owner of The Lady Dog Whisperer. I have three adopted dogs, three grown up children and an understanding husband.
As a child growing up in a flat in London, I was never allowed to have animals of my own, but I was a huge animal lover. So, I used to knock on my dog owning neighbours and ask to take their dogs out for a walk or to play with.read more
Recall Training... success I really cannot recommend June highly enough, she's very bubbly, friendly and was brilliant with my dog Angus who being a Schnauzer is very sociable and prone to following his nose instead of following me. After only 2 one on one lessons, Angus is much more responsive and coming back on recall on nearly every occasion, even in mid run to see another owner or dog, which he's never done before, the difference is amazing. June's method is simply but very easy to pick up and continue on every walk without making it feel like an effort. Angus and I now enjoy a much more playful walk where is attention is focused mainly on me. Which is exactly the outcome I had hoped for. You won't go far wrong with June on hand, 10/10 experience, well done and thank you so much...read more
Reactive Rescue dog Max In August we took Max home from the rescue centre. We were told he was reactive around dogs, but the true extent of his behaviour was a big shock! We couldn't go anywhere without him barking, growling and lunging at other dogs. We were questioning whether we were right for Max, and if we would ever be able to cope. June was recommended to us, and I contacted her. June came to visit us at our home to assess Max. He behaved appallingly, even jumped onto the dining room table at one point!! June wasn't fazed at all. She was very professional, but she has a very calming, down to earth personality, that I found very reassuring. She obviously has a great love for what she does. Three months from when I first contacted June, we are at the stage where we can deal with Max's fear aggression, and he is improving all the time. We were given so much information and support which has proved to be invaluable. Thank you so much Sarah and Jim - Dunstable...read more
Highly recommend I look after a Westie every day & when he started to show some behavioural problems I suggested to his owner that we needed help. She contacted June, I did some training with her & so did his owner, nothing was too much trouble for her. We met where I usually walk him & she showed me the ways I need to distract & deal with his little problems. He is much better now but as with all dog training it is ongoing but I know that if I need some more advice June is only a call away. You must be prepared to put in the effort, no dog is going to change in a few days, June gives you the tools to be able to read what may possibly happen & how to deal with it. She is professional, kind, friendly & she truly cares about the dogs. Would recommend every time...read more
Patient, knowledgable dog trainer We worked with June (who we originally did puppy classes with) when our mongrel became fear aggressive to some dogs after being attacked by other dogs. June was brilliant in helping us to help our dog gain confidence again, always patient and encouraging and giving us ways to help her cope with scary situations. Our approach has changed, we are a lot more aware of surroundings, dogs body language etc, so June was really training us to train the dog, it has to be that way as we are the ones doing this on an ongoing basis. June’s commitment, encouragement, understanding and time were priceless and walking the dog has become a pleasure again, albeit we can never relax and become complacent. Amazing lady with knowledge gained in this area over many years. We thoroughly enjoyed recommend her...read more
