Our 1-2-1 dog behaviour consultations provide an intense re-education programme for both you and your dog.

Using his uniquely developed and innovative “Calmness Leads to Reward” ® positive dog training and behaviour philosophy. Keith will provide you with the logical tools and knowledge to realign the relationship you have with your dog, totally transforming their behaviour forever.

Often described as having the ‘magic touch’, Keith is famous for his unique intuitive skills and his ability to tune into the energy of those he works with, both human and animal.


What makes our system so unique, is that unlike others, we do not primarily focus on the symptomatic behaviour first.  Instead, we focus on the reasons for your dog’s behaviour. We get to the source, the root cause and identify the triggers, thought patterns, learned behaviours, and experiences. We then apply multiple positive techniques to change your dog’s perception, helping them address the fears and anxieties at the core of their unwanted behaviour.

We apply similar cognitive therapy techniques used in human (CBT) therapy.  We provide you with the knowledge, teaching you the tools required to give your dog the confidence, to allow them to process and change their behaviour which ultimately results in permanently fixing their problems forever.

To do this we use our own unique methodology which we call “Calmness Leads to Reward” ®

“Calmness Leads to Reward” ®  is a pioneering, innovative, cognitive, dog training and behaviour management philosophy.  Uniquely developed by Keith Mathews ‘The Dog Guru’ and formulated from his practical work and 30 years study of canine behaviour.

The methodology behind “Calmness Leads to Reward” ®  is about realigning the human dog relationship, using systematic proven, positively focussed techniques. This in part, helps establish or re-establish the partnership of trust, which is the key ingredient in any successful relationship.

Unlike other trainers who tend to use treats with traditional conditioning methods to try and convince your dog everything is ok. “Calmness Leads to Reward” ®  is about reading and redirecting the energy of your dog.  It’s about teaching, before training and uses only positive, force free methods, combined with the timely consistent, reward of affection, with love, without the need for bribery through treats or gadgets.

It is a science orientated, holistic behavioural method which is uncomplicated, logical and follows common sense.

During your consultation Keith will introduce you to “Calmness Leads to Reward” ®  and provide you with the tools, so that you can truly ‘Think Dog’.  He will teach you how to communicate with your dog, in a way that they understand.  When implemented fully, the results will truly astound you.


Duration:  Your 1-2-1 Behavioural Consultation will normally last 1 hour 30 mins but please set additional time aside should Keith feel it necessary.

Videos:  Although this is not a necessity, it can be helpful if you are able to bring along with you on the day a video of your dog showing the behaviours you would like us to address.

Diagnosis:  Upon arrival at our ‘Dog Guru Centre’ you will be asked to complete a full in-depth behavioural assessment questionnaire. This will assist Keith in making a full comprehensive assessment and diagnosis of your dog and the reasons for its behaviour.

Action Plan: During the consultation Keith will formulate an in-depth behaviour management action plan for you to implement and follow as part of the process.

Practical Training: Keith will demonstrate with your dog and show you how to implement any practical training during the process.
