From Wild Puppy to Brilliant Family Dog

Six dog-friendly steps to the companion you always wanted!

Designed specifically for young puppies, this course will take you step-by-step through the vital learning to turn you and your puppy from opposing forces to a team!

Each concept and exercise is fully illustrated with brief videos - short enough to fit into your busy day.

From housetraining your new puppy to teaching her to walk nicely on the lead beside you, this course is comprehensive and will answer all your questions. You can progress through the weeks watching just one short video a day - and you'll be amazed at how quickly you can get success. You'll see lots of different puppies learning fast.

There's masses of help for problem-solving, and for all those "what if?" questions. You'll make friends in the friendly private Facebook group - I'm dying to see photos of your little pup!

And the best thing? It's all force-free. There's no need to be hard on your new pet - he'll learn really fast if the games are fun and rewarding.


"Since completing Beverley’s course, our Basset Hound Bilbo has come on leaps and bounds.

I was keen to find a trainer whose methods didn’t involve shouting or punishing the dog in any way and Beverley has been fantastic! She has taught us how to manage and improve Bilbo’s behaviour through play.

The methods are simple and thoroughly enjoyable. We now have an extremely well behaved, sociable and happy dog!"

Joanna Bentley and Bilbo the Basset Hound

“Thank you Beverley, the Focus Game really was a game changer for us. I was worried about her lack of eye contact but not any more!”

Is your new puppy turning out to be more of a challenge than you expected?

Is your house being turned into a war zone, with shredded cushions, chewed chair legs, and puddles everywhere? Or perhaps you're just starting out with your new pup and you want to get things right from the start?

I will take you by the hand and show you how to get a peaceful and enjoyable life with your puppy - without squashing any of his exuberance or joy. I'll introduce you to the concept of Choice Training, where your puppy gets a say in what happens. And NO! This doesn't mean mayhem and anarchy! It actually ensures that you both enjoy life to the full, with a mutual respect which will set you up for many years of companionship.

I’ve been training dogs for many years. First for competitive dog sports and over time to be stellar family pets. I found that a force-free approach was by far the most successful, effective, and rewarding for me, my dogs, and my students. It's a fascinating subject and I am continually studying and learning.

Almost ten years of teaching thousands of students in my Puppy and New Dog classes have taught me so much about how the critters learn and develop!

Having to learn how to make life acceptable for my own Growly Dog gave me the tools - and the empathy - to work with hundreds of students who have come to me in despair at their much-loved dog's "aggressive" behaviour.

My style of teaching has been influenced by my students. These dog-owners are not looking for competition-standard training; what they want is a Brilliant Family Dog they can take anywhere. Working with real dogs and their real owners keeps me humble - and resourceful! You could be brilliant at training dogs, but it's no use if you can’t convey this enthusiasm and knowledge to the person the dog has to live with. So I’m grateful for everything my students have taught me about how they learn best.

"I was brought up with the “yank and shout” method of training and attending Beverley’s training was a revelation. Beverley explains things clearly in easy to understand, everyday language and her methods are simple, easy to follow yet massively effective.

We have implemented her methods into our everyday life in a multi-dog household and the dogs are more responsive.

By asking the dog to present the required behaviour and him having to work it out - when he gets it, it’s so rewarding for both him and me, and they repeat that behaviour so quickly! Now my gang only have to see my hand going towards their sweetie jar and their bottoms can’t hit the floor quick enough – there is a line of sitting Cairns all awaiting their sweeties!

The puppies we breed are so easy to train using Beverley’s methods too, and this obviously follows them off to their new homes with owners reporting back how easy the pups are to train and socialise.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Beverley, in fact I do every day to our customers."
