Thank you to everyone who gave Neil the opportunity to do the job he loved so much.
It was Neil's wish that this website be left as a resource for people who might benefit from some topics posted here on the site.
Welcome to Springerman!
I am a Sussex based dog behaviourist and dog trainer offering advice and instruction for behavioural
problems, gundog work and dog training for your puppies and dogs.
How can I help you? If you've found your way here perhaps you are looking for help with a behavioural problem or maybe you are interested in some training or need some friendly advice about a new dog joining your family.
Over these pages you will find some useful suggestions about overcoming some of the more common problems that can be encountered when you invite a dog to share your home. If you have more specific needs please feel free to use the 'contact page' to let me know how I can help you.
Although based in Eastbourne I regularly travel further afield to visit clients and to help with all types of unwanted behavioural problems. As most problems manifest themselves on home territory I always prefer to visit you and to see any problem first hand.
Whether you are getting a puppy for the first time and want to get off on the right foot or have longer standing issues with your current family dog I am here to help you set up the right understanding and relationship between you and your dog(s). I have worked with a wide range of breeds, ages and temperaments and take great pride in setting the right balance. In addition to the consultation sessions, I offer ongoing email and telephone support giving you the confidence to develop.
I cater my training to suit a wide range of behavioural issues and offer very useful help at affordable prices; you will see behavioural changes during my visit.
Please go to the testimonial section to read through a few of the references from clients with whom I have worked, this will give you an indication of what can be achieved.
I do not use or advocate any harsh training techniques but offer sensible, practical and easy to follow
advice and actively encourage all family members to become involved; for dogs with behavioural issues, consistency can play a major part in overcoming them.
I also offer email and telephone support which can either be planned or on a more informal basis. As with most things, you will be given lots of advice from well meaning people - use your common sense when considering this advice - if you're not comfortable with it, then don't use it . Professional advice is available which is both informative and catered to your personal circumstances.
I am committed to working with you so that you can establish a happy and healthy life with your dog. I have a wide range of knowledge in dealing with behavioural problems for all breeds.
I am very happy to receive phone calls or enquiries via the contacts page at any time. Simply call me for an informal chat or to talk through any concerns or worries you might have, I really am here to help you.
I believe in educating from an early age to increase confidence and promote a greater understanding of animals needs. If your school or club has any educational needs please contact me by telephone, email or through the contacts page.
