Thinking Paws Dog & Cat Behaviour & Training

Puppy & dog training classes, 1:1 behaviour modification and private tuition for dogs and cats with Julie Daniels DipCABT Certified COAPE Animal Behaviourist and Trainer (RQF Level 5) (CAPBT, APDT & PPG).  Really useful behaviour change and training for caring owners in Biggleswade, Sandy, Bedford, Tempsford and surrounding areas in Bedfordshire.   Described by clients as ‘friendly, knowledgeable, patient and enjoyable’.  My mission is to improve the lives of every animal and owner I work with through ‘training for trust.  I never use physically or emotionally damaging methods.  I do use force-free, fear-free reward training because it’s ethical and it works. 


PUPPY or NEW RESCUE GOOD START home visit will set you on the right path.

Developed at the University of Lincoln:

LIFE SKILLS FOR PUPPIES / LIFE SKILLS FOR DOGS teach your puppy or dog to:

  • Be calm, listen to you and have good manners
  • Learn self control and be able to cope with a little frustration 
  • Learn and follow the rules
  • Enjoy being handled (like at the vet) and to cope with surprises
  • Have fun and meet other puppies / dogs and people in a safe environment
  • Have confidence and enjoy being a dog! 

Exercises include paying attention to you, walking on a loose lead, coming back when called, leave something they are not supposed to have and  participating in fun and varied activities to drain all that energy or to get them motivated!
