Training guides for wildlife friendly walks

Bird Aware Solent’s dog behaviour expert Shona has put together a series of training guides to help you enjoy a wildlife friendly walk. She’ll be adding more to the series over the next few months.

The training guides have been created to give an overview of some useful techniques and behaviours, and to help you and your dog enjoy a safer and more wildlife friendly walk. She recommends force free, positive reinforcement training as the more ethical and evidence based choice.

If you are struggling with training and are looking for a dog trainer or behaviourist two great places to start are either the CCAB or APBC registers.
