Whistle and Wag do training was started by two friends for whom dog training is a way of life not just a hobby. Nicci and Jemma both have a particular fondness for all things spaniel and train their own spaniels in gundog work. Nicci works throughout the season with her older dog on a shoot and Jemma competes her younger spaniel in working tests. Despite having a particular fondness for spaniels, Jemma and Nicci love to work with all dogs and find a massive satisfaction in helping owner achieve a more harmonious relationship with their dogs. After training with the world famous Robert Alleyne he spurred them on to start helping people over come their issues with their dogs and Whistle and Wag Dog Training was born and both Jemma and Nicci have loved every moment so far and look forward to helping more people and their dogs over the coming years. Nicci and Jemma are firstly dog lovers so believe that training should never cause the dog harm or undue stress. We are part of a group of trainers that believes in the ‘PRAMA’ methods – Positive reinforcement and minimally aversive. We believe in using positive reinforcement in the form of treats or whatever else motivates the individual dog and also believe dogs need to learn what behaviours we do not want them to repeat by using minimal aversive cue such as a verbal interrupter. It is important to understand that every dog is different and to train the dog in front of you, just because one method works with Fluffy does not mean it will work for Fido. A dog that knows the rules of life, is a happy dog as it can spend more time having fun with its owner and not wondering if it will make the right choices. So get in touch today - "make everyday a good dog day"
