Cristina Dow CAM-CBT, BA

cristina correct size-50Utilising my BA in Education and Psychology and Certificate in Canine Behaviour and Training, I am passionate about passing on my knowledge and skills to owners, helping to better their relationships with their dogs through training. As a positive trainer, I believe in using science-based approaches in order to understand and communicate with our dogs, building mutual respect, trust, and a strong friendship. If I'm not helping with client's dogs I'm hanging out with my best furry friend, Allan!

You’ll learn the skills and techniques to effectively communicate with your dog and change your dog's behaviour, so that you are able to mould your pooch into the dog you’ve always wanted.

Our Guarantee

We stand by our training methods – if you follow our programme you will see your dog’s behaviour improve! However, if you aren’t convinced after your first session, you are under no obligation to embark on a D’For Dog programme.
