It is a high energy programme reflected in the amazing results for dogs and families I have worked with.

Pro Dog trainers work with “concepts” it is a brain based learning  programme using current neurological knowledge of learning. We identify the learning needs of the dogs and the functional needs of their families and then use 3 min games (the optimum time for learning to be processed) alongside calm time and play to develop deeper learning. Calm is an intrinsic part of the programme. To find out more about the importance of calm have a look at the blog.

Calm Dogs are Happy and Healthy Dogs – Something you dream of ?

This way of learning is especially great for children to learn to have fun, bond with and be responsible owners for their dog.

As a teacher for young children we use concept and short burst (chunked ) learning for fast results. Children really benefit from this too.

The fun positive based learning fits so well with the ethos of IMDT and I am thrilled to combine the two.

Mandy has made a huge difference to my rehomed Tibetan Terrier Tatty. I had owned Tatty for almost 4 years (she had been a breeding bitch) and she had always been very nervous, subdued and seemingly lacking in joy or enthusiasm for life. Then, after recovering from a recurring ear problem, Tatty’s mood deteriorated, she became despondent and seemed depressed, and, worried about her, I contacted Mandy to see if she could help. With all the information that I could give her, Mandy created a bespoke mix of several Bach Flower remedies and I was to give Tatty 2 doses of several drops each day. I did this and noted Tatty’s mood lift almost immediately and, within a week or so she was back to her normal self. Although she was still, by TT standards, quite subdued and quiet. Mandy then had a face to face consultation with Tatty to evaluate her, after which she gave Tatty a second and different bespoke Bach Flower remedy. Immediately, Tatty became significantly, more outgoing and cheerful, she has become more confident, energetic and clearly is finding her inner TT. She seems less worried about life and even ‘asks’ for attention, or chooses where she wants to be. She is clearly happier and generally appears to have a better sense of herself. Tatty means the world to me and I am so grateful to Mandy for improving the quality of my gentle, dear little dog’s life.
