Here at K9 Klass Dog Training, we use only positive reinforcement, ethical and force free methods in our training and behavioural work, following up to date scientific advances in the dog behaviour industry. We will never use force or aversive equipment in our work or jeopardise your dog's emotional wellbeing.
Unfortunately the dog training and behaviour industry is unregulated so anyone can call themselves a behaviourist despite having no qualifications in the subject, resulting in a minefield of underqualified and underexperienced trainers who can not only potentially make behavioural problems worse but can also put both yourself and your dog in danger.
Our Canine Behaviour Practitioner Juanita Rogers KCAI (CD), IMDT, DTC-ADT, ISCP.Dip.Canine.Prac is a level 5 qualified behaviourist (it is widely regarded in the industry that a level 5 qualification is required to be considered as a behaviourist) and specialises in reactivity, resource guarding and aggression.
It has been scientifically proven that outdated pack leader, dominance and force-based dog training is not only damaging for you and your dog’s relationship but can cause lasting psychological damage to your dog. Punishing the behaviour merely supresses it and does not teach the dog how to deal with and overcome the problems they are having or how to behave correctly. A quick fix may sound tempting, and many so called behaviourists can claim to solve all your problems in one visit but true behaviour modification takes time, care and patience but the results speak for themselves and last!
We offer a 121 behaviour package consisting of three 1 hour long visits, in which we will explore your dog's emotions, identify the underlying cause of their behaviour and create and implement a behavioural modification plan.
Prior to the first session, a link to our online behavioural consultation form will be emailed to you to gather some background information and history on your dog. We usually advise having the first session at your home and then subsequent sessions can be held at a location of your choice (whichever is most appropriate for the issues you are having).
We specialise in the following behavioural issues: reactivity, resource guarding, aggression and multidog households.
Please be advised that we are extremely busy at present and are currently fully booked until October 2022

"I cannot praise Juanita enough, she came to me when I had almost given up hope with training my dog. She was the third trainer I contacted, I so wish I had contacted her first. After two previous trainers, numerous hours and numerous £’s spent I was nowhere near having even a reasonably well behaved dog. Rosie came to me at 6 months having had no training of any kind and also was not house trained. She was out of control and very aggressive towards me and other dogs we met. After just one session with Juanita I started to see a different dog, her exercises were fun for both me and Rosie, fun but also very instructive. Her behaviour improved enormously as we continued on our 121 journey with Juanita. She was so kind and had a calming effect on us both, I also learnt that sometimes the stress I was experiencing with her would be having a detrimental effect on Rosie's behaviour towards me and other dogs. Rosie is a completely different dog" - Laureen
