Beverley Courtney has lived with dogs all her life. She qualified her Battersea Dogs’ Home rescue as a Working Trials Champion - and has enjoyed herself hugely for many years, helping new owners with their dogs and puppies.
Using the latest scientific breakthroughs in dog behaviour, she is dedicated to improving communication between owner and dog. Once you ditch the idea that it’s a one-way process (“I said SIT!”) and start understanding how your dog learns, training becomes a breeze.
Her fresh approach has helped hundreds of families to discover the joy of choice-based training. Her first four books address the four Essential Skills for a Brilliant Family Dog, and the first book in this new series features one of her students’ favourite skills - getting their frantic puppy to relax!
Beverley’s latest three books address the tricky problem many dog-owners experience - of having a dog who barks and reacts to other dogs. Or people. Or bikes … Drawing on her own experience with her “Growly Dog” Lacy, together with extensive study, she brings the gentle and humorous approach that her readers love! There is no blame or shame here - just empathy, understanding, and masses of how-to’s to get you enjoying calm walks with your dog again.
