Welcome to Harness Positivity Dog Training


My name is Nicky Goddard and I am a qualified dog trainer, preventative and first aid behaviour adviser and Registered Veterinary Nurse based in Essex


I provide one to one consultations with you and your dog and only use positive methods of dog training.  This means that we train the behaviours we want to see by positively rewarding them making them more likely to be repeated.  We achieve this through training, coaching and using encourgagement to show our dogs what we would like them to do and rewarding it when they get it right.  


Note: Your dog should be in good health and with no veterinary concerns prior to seeking any training or dog behaviourist advice.  Pain and discomfort can greatly affect dog behavour.
