Yvonne Alder, Dog Trainer & Behaviourist - 07760 282742

I cover all aspects of dog training including:

  • Introducing your new dog to children/pets
  • Personal dog training sessions to suit you & your dog
  • Puppy house/ toilet training
  • Jumping up
  • Pulling on the lead
  • Barking & aggression
  • Mouthing & biting
  • Separation anxiety issues
  • Fun, safe recall
  • Good social manners indoors and out
  • Pack walks (existing clients only)
  • Free telephone advice
I only use calm, assertive energy to train dogs – no gadgets or gimmicks

Teaching your dog good manners or basic tricks can be rewarding for you and your dog.

Dogs love to please their owners.  Dogs that have spent a long time in shelter need rehabilitating into family life. This can sometimes be a slow process but I work towards the dog having its forever home with you.

I can offer advice on the choice of a puppy or dog, to suit your lifestyle & home environment

As a professional dog trainer and behaviourist I don’t just train your dog.  I look at what is going on within, noting the dog’s body language and behaviours to understand temperament, levels of nervousness, dominance etc.  Together, these enable me to determine the actions needed to correct your dog’s behaviour.

I am dedicated to helping dogs become happy & calm. We can work together to both achieve & maintain this

Dogs provide us with both companionship and hours of joy. Whether you have owned your dog from a puppy or adopted a rescued dog I am happy to work with you and your dog to ensure it has the best life ever.

Dogcology has been recognised as one of the three best dog trainers in Reading.  I am so proud that both my hard work, and that of my clients and their dogs, has been rewarded.
