Introducing Sandra Strong
Sandra Strong BA [Hons] VN, DIP [CABT] COAPE qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 1985 and as a Behaviourist and a Trainer in 2003.
She was the co-founder of the Boss Dog Training School in Battersea SW11 and founder of Perfect Dog. Sandra also owns a company called Dogs on Camera, which provides dogs for the stage and screen. Sandra dogs have appeared in many well-known TV adverts and TV shows.
Sandra has developed her own unique style of dog training classes that allows owners to quickly and easily access the support they need. She uses a variety of training methods including clicker training, target training, and training using a lure. All these methods involve treats.
In recent years Sandra has been successful in using the research undertaken by Turid Rugaas into Canine Calming Signals. You can watch her demonstrating this procedure on YouTube on the Chrissy B Show, Animal Communication “Do they really have feelings?”.
“The exciting aspect of this innovative style of training is the immense pleasure it gives! As a trainer it gives me pleasure to see entire families engaged in training their dog. They do their homework, report back to me, and keep coming to classes. The dogs are ecstatically happy! They try so hard to please and understand us, and the Clicker enables them to do this. Win win situation!” – Sandra
Sandra Strong was recommended to me for puppy training. Her courses are well structured and are supported by excellent written information which is essential for a first time dog owner. She is easy to understand and she taught us a wide range of skills. Her sessions were engaging and fun as she kept the solid foundations of essential training.
Each day at 11am Jasper, my wire haired dachshund, positions himself between the window and front door listening for Sandra’s car, ready for his day out with her. He loves her, loves his walks with her and his canine friends, and I have not had a moment’s worry in ten years about his well being. Indeed as a working woman, I would not have been able to own a dog without Sandra Strong’s excellent dog walking service. I am eternally grateful to her.
“I was utterly amazed by what Sandra helped my wife and I achieve with our Dachshund, Hector in such a short space of time.”
