Behaviour
Understanding and appreciating the behaviour of dogs underlies everything we do at Dogs Trust. As every dog lover knows, each dog is a unique individual, with their own quirks, delights and challenges! Behaviours develop through a combination of multiple elements including breed, individual personality, medical issues and prior experiences. So understanding why an individual dog develops a problem behaviour can be like a detective mystery - identifying all the different elements which tell his or her story.

In our re-homing centres we are committed to caring for and rehabilitating dogs which have behaviour problems. And in Dogs Trust Dog School our mission is to work with owners to prevent problems from developing in the first place!

Training
Pet dogs don't need to be obedience champions, dance to music or speed around an agility course. Of course, these activities can be great fun and something to aspire to, but most owners need their dog to sit when asked, walk calmly on a loose lead, come back when called on a walk, and settle down when they stop to natter to their neighbour or have a pint in the pub! And they want their dog to do these things even when there are tempting picnics around, kids running about playing football, or other dogs walking past.  

The training we do at Dogs Trust is based on teaching the basic behaviours that dogs and owners need day to day in a domestic life. Whether we are working with dogs in our adoption centres and preparing them to go to their forever homes, or teaching owners in Dog School classes, we are focused on doing a thorough job of training the basics!

The other important principle of training at Dogs Trust is that we use reward-based methods to train all our dogs. Research has shown that using reward based methods are effective, and less likely to be associated with problem behaviours. This approach also means that dogs have better welfare, enjoy their training and form a better bond with owners or carers - so why would we do anything else?

Meet the team:
Jemma joins the Dog School team in her home county, Devon. She grew up riding horses and began to work with dogs when she was 16. After a few years teaching puppy and agility classes, she has spent the last 2 years working at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home where she worked with a wide range of dogs, some with very challenging behaviours. Jemma is passionate about learning new methods and enjoys being creative to solve problems when she works with dogs.

Outside of Dog School, Jemma is a big rugby fan and has played for the last 18 months. She will often be seen at her local club helping on the sidelines. Jemma has a 7-year-old Beagle called Lily who she enjoys trying new things with; they have done scent work, flyball, agility and more. Lily has a real sense of adventure and they can often be found exploring Woodbury Common on their days off!
