About Me
My name is Lynne Muir.  I am a COAPE Certified Animal Behaviourist having achieved an Ofqual regulated qualification with the Centre of Applied Pet Ethology (COAPE).   I have a Diploma in the Principles in Companion Animal Behaviour and Training (RQF Level 4).  I am a fully insured member of CAPBT - COAPE Association of Applied Pet Behaviourists and Trainers.

I am part of a wonderful mentor group led by Clare Russell where we follow an ongoing process of self development and improvement.  This group comprises trainers, behaviourists, dog walkers and groomers who all have the same goal - to help and improve the life of dogs in a kind, thoughtful way.

I am also a full member of The Pet Professional Guild of British Isles.  PPG advocate  No shock, No pain, No choke, No fear, No physical force. 
 
I believe training is necessary to teach your dog or puppy the skills he will require to be able to cope living in a human family.  Build a solid connection with your dog and the rest will follow.

My background and Ethics as a Trainer

EXPERIENCE
I have been training dogs for the
last 5 years.  I enjoy meeting
different people and their dogs
and currently run puppy classes and 1
to 1 private training sessions. I
also undertake behaviour
modification work if your dog has
a particular behaviour problem you
wish to address.
POSITIVE TRAINING
I am a big advocate for force free, ethical
training methods.  All the current
scientific research suggests that aversive
training methods have a huge negative effect
on a dog's emotional state and in most cases
will manifest in behaviour problems.  I
train owners to work in partnership with
their dog. 
ETHOS
I will always do what is best for owner
and dog.  I will treat dog with respect
using only positive, kind methods
of training.  I will never put profit over
the welfare of dog or owner.  I will
always suggest solutions based
on the best interests of the dog.
