With many years experience, Helen Masters works with a wide range of dog behavioural problems from nervousness, depression, non-socialisation and separation anxiety.
Helen starts all her training with a consultation to assess your dog's needs.
Helen has found, through her wealth of experience, that many behaviour and skin problems occur as a result of diet. Helen is an advocate of the BARF (bones and raw food) diet, having swapped her English Mastiff over to this some years ago. The improvement in his overall health, fitness, muscle tone and wellbeing is testament to the diet, along with the money saving factor! Helen can happily discuss nutritional issues with clients and create a personalised plan which is unique to each dog and their needs.
You should never go against your veterinary surgeon's advice if your dog has health issues relating to kidneys or any other problem, without consulting them first.
Helen offers personal training to any who needs help with any problem relating to their dog, or just general advice and obedience training if they are not able to attend classes.
These one to one sessions are a great opportunity to have your dogs unique needs addressed in your own home.
Helen has worked with numerous dogs in Kent over the last few years, with various problems ranging from nervous aggression, non-socialisation and separation anxiety to name a few! No two dogs are ever the same and there is no set method for any one problem.
I like to have a consultation and meet the dog before a plan of action is put in to place. This can be anything from intensive one on one with the owner, getting the dog out in social situations or working with The Pack to overcome any dog related issues.

During training and rehabilitation, a dog in the care of Helen or her team can expect an initital two hour session with the appropriate dogs from The Pack. Helen uses this time to assess your dog and create a bespoke training programme. This is then usually followd by an hour intense session and another 40 minute 1:1 where your pet has to show all they have learned without the help of other dogs.
Helen offers this service on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Spaces are limited so please get in touch to enquire about availability.
Contact Helen directly using the form below to find out more about her services.
Please include your dog's breed and a description of the issues you would like resolved.
From time to time Helen Masters runs one off dog training workshops, such as children's summer training camps, or Summer Special Training days.
