A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

* Wellbeing Dogs spreads the word about how dogs & Owners need choice and control in their life to have Wellbeing. We train dogs with 100% positive methods using verbal and visual cues to enable the dog to choose to do a behaviour and be rewarded with praise and a treat. We believe that dogs have a mission to improve your wellbeing by learning to stay calm in challenging situations. We do this by learning the canine language of calming signals, doing 'Click to Calm' and the comforting 'touch procedure'.
