Canine Behaviour Modification

Dog training is the application of behavior analysis which uses the environmental events of antecedents and consequences to modify the behavior of a dog, either for it to assist in specific activities or undertake particular tasks, or for it to participate effectively in contemporary domestic life. While training dogs for specific roles dates back to Roman times at least, the training of dogs to be compatible household pets developed with suburbanization in the 1950s.


The responses of your dog, individually or in a group to internal and external stimuli. It has been shaped by millennia of contact with humans and their lifestyles. As a result of this physical and social evolution, dogs, more than any other species, have acquired the ability to understand and communicate with humans and they are uniquely attuned to their behaviours.

Our instructor/trainer will work closely with you and your dog, to address any negative behavioural issues your dog displays, extinguish them or, in rare cases where the dog will not fully rehabilitate, provide management protocols to initiate in any given reactive environment, seeding control to the handler and simultaneously making your dog compliant. Pedigree Canine train dogs to comply with the UK Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, an essential level of competency to keep you and your dog within the law. Pedigree Canine have a 100% success ratio of rehabilitating formerly aggressive dogs within 3 months, the typical duration of a behaviour modification programme. We succeed where all others would recommend euthanasia as the only solution. We are very proud of our achievements in this respect, having prevented the unnecessary death of many dogs under our care.
