Take a look at what we specialise in…



Aftab helps dog owners understand the way dogs learn, the importance of reward based training, why some dogs just don’t listen to their owners and the impact of genetic predisposition, previous experiences and the environment on a dog’s behaviour.



Aftab holds regular seminars on a variety of subjects including the major causes of behavioural problems and how to modify undesirable behaviours. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, seminars are currently suspended, but it is hoped that these will be resumed in late 2021


Behavioural Problems

Aftab has over 20 years experience of modifying dog behaviours and has trained with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and training (CIDPT) the International School of Canine Psychology (ISCP) and The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT)


Dog Boarding

We take the care of your dog seriously. For dogs that that may need special care because of previous behavioural issues, they can stay under the watchful eye of Aftab. Your dog will live and sleep in our home and (if possible) with our Ridgeback, Ragnar Lothbrook, and learn new socialisation and other skills and for the duration of his/her stay.

There is a long list of equipment for sale but unfortunately, it is not always used correctly and some shouldn’t be used at all! During any behaviour modification consultation you will be shown how to use any relevant and necessary equipment effectively and which equipment you should avoid.

  1. Under the Control of Dogs Order 1992, all dogs must wear a collar and identity tag in a public place. The tag must show the owner’s name and address. Dog wardens can enforce this law and fines of up to £5000 can be given by the Courts for an offence.
  2. A dog is considered ‘under control’ if it is on a lead held by someone able to control the dog. … However, dogs must be kept on a lead in designated pedestrian zones and on land where livestock is present. Councils have bye-laws to show the areas where leashing is required, such as in public parks.
