Sorry, I Can No Longer Give Free Advice: I would love to be able to answer each and everyone's problems and questions. After all I have done so for many years. Unfortunately I am now getting many dozens of e-mails daily asking for all types of help.
I am only one person and do not have the resources or time available to continue doing this. I have unfortunately come to the stage where it is impossible to answer the sheer volume of your queries.
If you want to contact me to make an appointment or discuss your dogs problems with a view to possibly arranging an appointment, then I will be happy to discuss this with you.
If you live outside the UK or a great distance from where I operate, I may be able to set up a telephone consultation if the problem warrants it. Or I could recommend a PAACT member in your area go to the PAACT website (see below and click on find a trainer. But unfortunately I can no longer give personal free advice. Sorry!
