Due to a change in personal circumstances I have taken the very difficult decision to stop seeing dog behaviour cases or offering one-to-one training. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you are an existing client I will continue support you for 6 months from the date of your consult. If you still need help after this I will help you find an appropriate trainer or behaviourist.

If you are looking for a qualified, experienced behaviourist, please check the Links page or use the search function on the APBC website.

Warning! - There are behaviourists in the Bristol area still using old, out-dated training techniques and charging huge fees, please avoid them. If you speak to anyone who mentions pack-leaders, 'alpha' behaviour, rank or dominance then their training methods will be based in fear and intimidation, no matter how they dress them up. Modern dog training uses a positive approach and is kinder and more effective, so seek out trainers and behaviourists whose methods are based in the latest scientific research!

If you need to contact me for any reason then please try my mobile (07805) 494134 or send me an e-mail john@johnlofthousebehaviour.co.uk. I aim to return all calls and reply to e-mails within 24 hours.

If you are looking for dog training classes, please contact Jo Burt at Ace on (07877) 917796 or e-mail jo@acedogtraining.co.uk
