Say goodbye to paw manners

Dog troubles could be a thing of the past with this handy how-to guide that every discerning dog owner should read.

We’ve all experienced it; those troubling times when our beloved pooch just won’t play ball. Sometimes this erratic behaviour can be embarrassing in public, perhaps even dangerous in some scenarios. You’ve tried the usual tricks with only short-lived success. Surely there’s a long-term solution? Enter dog behaviourist Nigel Reed, who brings 15 years’ experience working with dogs and their owners in a compelling book, The Dog Guardian: Your Guide to a Happy Well-Behaved Dog.

“The book will empower you to address any behavioural issues to become the guardian of a happy, well-behaved dog.”

In Nigel’s words, “The Dog Guardian is a must for any dogs owners who want to understand, communicate and care for their dog on a deeper level… The book will empower you to address any behavioural issues to become the guardian of a happy, well-behaved dog.”

Nigel has developed a methodology split into four distinct areas, in turn covering your dog’s needs, language and state, and your leadership style. His book is crammed with expert, step-by-step advice on everything from issues with food and obsessive behaviours to interactions with children and other dogs. You’ll find lots of ‘added tips’ throughout as well as case studies that put the themes into context.

But don’t just take our word for it. Nigel’s success has drawn the attention of several celebrities, including Evan Davis, and TV mind control expert Derren Brown, who notes: “Nigel is a real magician. He transformed our wayward and difficult dog into a delightful companion.”

The book is available from Amazon, either in paperback or ebook format for your tablet. What’s more, the guide includes access to exclusive videos demonstrating Nigel’s approach in action. Nigel’s business also provides one-to-to consultation and runs online and group courses for you and your dog.

We catch up with Nigel who, having grown up in Cornwall, explains what makes it the perfect place for getting out with your pooch. “If you want to explore Cornwall with your dog, you’re spoilt for choice with its hundreds of beaches, beautiful woodlands, lakes and nature trails,” says Nigel. “Cornwall’s idyllic and calm environment makes it ideal for walks, and easy for you and your dog to relax and live in the moment.”
