TO DOG MINDS
WITH SARAH LEDERMANN
Positive Reinforcement Training
Dog Minds with Sarah Ledermann offers one-to-one dog training in North London. My aim is to support you in building a strong and fun relationship with your dog . All training programmes are tailor-made using positive reinforcement methods.
I'm Sarah, originally from France, I moved to the UK in my early teens. Ever since, London has been my home.
Growing up with pets at home, I have always loved dogs and know the joy they bring to a family home.
As a mum of two, I understand how busy family life can be and therefore specialise in providing personalised programmes to help families with their new puppies.
I know that by starting early, with the right training programme, they will grow into happy, confident dogs who can easily fit into your family’s lifestyle. Using a positive, science-based approach, I aim to help every member of your family build a strong relationship with your dog based on trust, fun interactions and affection.
I have successfully completed the Think Dog theoretical and Practical courses with the Clever Dog Company led by renowned canine behavioural specialist Sarah Whitehead. I am also proud to have been selected as one of her CDC licensed trainers.
IS YOUR PUPPY CHASING YOUR CHILDREN?
Your children are running around playing and screaming. Your puppy thinks this looks fun and wants to join in. He starts chasing them but they begin to feel annoyed and frightened. You find yourself trying to remove puppy from the play but are struggling to keep him away every time your children are running around. Sounds familiar...? Do get in touch if you need help with this!
IS YOUR PUPPY STEALING YOUR CHILDREN'S TOYS AND OTHER ITEMS?
Your children are playing on the floor with their toys but your puppy makes a habit of stealing them! One child gets upset, begins to scream and chases puppy in order to regain his beloved toy. Puppy continues to run away and retrieving the toy back becomes mission impossible! Sounds familiar...? Do get in touch if you need help with this!
IS YOUR PUPPY MOUTHING/BITING YOUR CHILDREN?
Your children and puppy are playing together at home. Puppies naturally play with their mouth and so puppy begins to grab your children's clothes. They are not so impressed and start to wriggle out of the situation. Puppy is making sure to hold on very tight! Sounds familiar...? Do get in touch if you need help with this!
IS YOUR PUPPY JUMPING UP AT YOUR CHILDREN?
It's the morning and your children come downstairs. Puppy is very excited to see them and jumps up to greet them. Your children on the other hand are finding it a bit too much and would rather puppy didn't get so close to their faces. Sounds familiar...? Do get in touch if you need help with this!
"I used Sarah for training when my puppy was 10 weeks old and we had 4 great sessions with her. Her manner was really lovely and calming and my puppy responded so well to that. Every session was always followed with useful follow up e mails which included what we had covered in the sessions and any relevant “homework”. Sarah was always available in between sessions to message and she always responded so quickly with advice and tips which was very reassuring for a new first time dog mum!"
