Growing up with dogs, I have always loved and felt a great affinity towards them. My modern training system is full of fun techniques that will give you and your pet a happier life together.
I qualified as a Dog Training Instructor with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour Training (CIDBT) in 2013. Carrie Bates Dog Training was founded the same year and since has developed a special reputation with many dogs and their owners in Huntingdon. I believe that having a clear set of boundaries is one thing but being fierce is just not necessary. I don’t believe in choke collars or other aversive tools or techniques as the way to teach an animal discipline.
I am a full member of IMDT, IMDTB and a member of Pet Professional Network, both of which have a strict code of conduct supporting positive, force-free, scientific approaches to dog training and behaviour.
Dogs, like most other animals, are social creatures, who enjoy love and family life. My modern training system is full of fun techniques that will give you and your pet a happier life together.
