I have been a dog trainer for 28 years working with all breeds of dog in many different settings:
Pet dog training
watching and studying adult dogs and puppies
adopting a silent and calm approach.
Bertie Dog Training – Formed by Nij and Jo Vyas 1991
Bertie Dog Training was formed 21 years ago with the following aims in mind:
To offer a simplified and common sense approach to pet dog owners
To maintain a friendly atmosphere where humour was an essential ingredient
I offer a truly unique training experience and our client testimonials support this. Our success over many years has been built on providing a structured and individual program of training with support to our clients always on tap. In short, I owe my success to our members who have remained loyal over two decades. We have enjoyed an excellent reputation both locally and nationally have enjoyed regular publicity.
Sheepdog Training and Trials
In July 2010 my first book “Sheepdog Training and Trials” was published by Crowood Press and feedback from both Border Collie owners and competitors as wells as owners of other dog breeds have remarked how useful the book as proved in managing their dog’s behaviour. Currently, I own five Border Collies: Mac – Jake – Todd – Mist and Cody. The future, as they say, is bright!
Practical Shepherding DVD
In 2015 “Practical Shepherding” was launched following Todd and Mist as puppies through to useful working adults. A second follow up DVD will follow shortly.
