Hi, just wanted to give an update with Casper. Everything’s going really well, he’s improved with his walking, jumping up and recall. He went on a walk in Windsor where he was great walking around dogs and people, he also visited his first pub where he was wonderful. Thanks for the all the help.

About the Terrier Guy

Davey terrier training in Seaton

Davey (aka The Terrier Guy) is a Clever Dog Company Method Trainer, terrier enthusiast and clicker trainer. His lifelong aim is to show the world that terriers can be trained very successfully using modern reward-based training techniques and not physical or psycological intimidation methods. His favourite training exercises and techniques include mat work and shaping.

"It's a real lightbulb moment when the dog works things out for themselves."

He gained theoretical and practical accredited qualifications in Canine Behaviour and Training (Alpha Education, Clever Dog Company) and was handpicked by the famous Clinical Animal Behaviourist and Trainer Sarah Whitehead (BA, MSc) to join her team of Licensed trainers in the Clever Dog Company Method.

Learning is a continuous journey and Davey keeps his knowledge up to date by attending courses, webinars and reading from some of the best trainers and behaviourists in the field throughout the year.

When not working he practices the flute (knowing all about frustration!) and attempts to train his British Blue cat Luna.


What our clients say...

We cannot recommend Davey enough.

We opted for the Diamond package 1-1 service for our Cavachon puppy Coco. He was patient with our puppy and she has gained so much confidence. Davey is so helpful and friendly, with so much advice.

Thank you again and anyone looking for a kind, patient trainer please do contact Axe Valley Dog Training, first class trainer with amazing results.
