Your Positive Dog Trainer Surrey
Dogitivity's vision is to improve the lives of dogs and their humans. With the vision comes respect for dogs and a strong belief that if we fully fill our dogs' needs and clearly communicate our expectations, we create the best foundation for teaching our dogs new desirable behaviours.
I am working very hard to make a big difference in your life with your dog and be your preferred dog training partner in Surrey. I always look for ways to improve Dogitivity, and my Dog training journey will never end. I will strive to provide you with the best dog training in Surrey and continue educating myself on the newest dog training science.
I will always receive feedback gratefully with an open mind.
I run Dogitivity Positive Puppy And Dog Training Surrey, where I offer a one on one dog training, dog training group classes and intensive dog training classes in Surrey. My method is based on Clicker training, positive reinforcement training, stress and fear-free handling.
The Dogitivity method applies the newest, science-based approaches to training, rooted in mutual respect and cooperation between the owner and the dog in the dog’s home atmosphere—where harmony between dog and owner is achievable.
My expertise is puppy training, where I help families get the best start with their new puppy. Adolescent dog training, where I support families through the challenging period of teenagehood (aggression, dog-to-dog interaction, off-lead training, recall, loose lead walk). Rehomed dog training helps families integrate their newly adopted dogs into their families.
My dog training group classes mainly target the pet gundog, where we work on critical foundation behaviours, loose lead walking, stationing, and recall. The group classes are efficient as you can practice real-life behaviours in a controlled environment with many distractions.
My dog training services are available throughout Surrey, focusing on dog training in Surrey.
Privately I share my life with my three children, husband and our wonderful young Labrador. Tokyo is 1.5 years old and is my running partner demo dog and partner in dog sports. Tokyo is clicker trained, and her training has been reward-based. I love participating in dog sports and am very involved in scent training, gundog training and dog parkour.
My Background In Dog Training
Hi, my name is Christina Bluhme, professional dog trainer, founder of Dogitivity and lifelong dog-lover.
I grew up surrounded by dogs and animals in the countryside of Denmark. When I turned 14 years old, I got my first Working Labrador, and that's where my dog training journey started from a very early age. I learned that training based on fear and discipline, while sometimes effective, was not the morally correct or lifelong approach to dog training. I knew there had to be a better way—so I sought it out myself.
I knew that education was crucial, and I am today an RPTM Dog Behavior Instructor, Certified Professional Dog Trainer, and Certified Karen Pryor Dog Training Partner accredited through the ABTC (Animal Behavior Training Counsel). My dog training education validated my belief that pressure, pain, and fear have no place in modern ethical dog training. It is possible to create mutual respect and harmony between dogs and their humans with the power of Positive Reinforcement Dog Training.
