Hyperactive & Adolescent Dog Training
With Jess Richardson
Athletic working dogs like spaniels, vizlas and border collies are super popular for their liveliness and intelligence, but not everyone is prepared for the sheer energy and drive that comes with them.
I know exactly what it’s like to take on a hyperactive herding dog – dogs that are so amped about EVERYTHING that you feel like you are riding into battle every single day. These high-energy dogs can be difficult to live with and are chronically misunderstood, prone to bouts of frustration and hyperactivity that leave owners feeling embarrassed and disheartened.
The great news is that with a few simple adjustments to your routine and training, you can skyrocket your relationship with your dog and channel their energy to create the calm, well-behaved family dog you’ve always wanted.
I can help you with:
- Lack of focus out and about
- Herding and nipping behaviour
- ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ behaviour
- Resource guarding
- Mouthing and biting
- Chasing everything that moves
- Tail chasing
- Pulling on the lead
- Digging up the garden
- Building reliable recall
- Barking and jumping
- Door dashing
- Dogs that can’t settle or sleep
- Dogs that are always getting into trouble
- Herding and working breeds
If any of this sounds familiar, you’re not alone and help is at hand. I will work with you to design a tailored programme for your dog’s struggles and be there every step of the way to help guide and implement the training. What’s more, you can text me anytime with questions – so you’re never alone.

We’re so thankful we found Jess to help us with our border collie puppy Nessie. She is now 9 months old and today another dog owner complimented me on how lovely and calm she was. Impossible even just a few weeks ago!

We first got in touch with Jess after our dog Wilson was attacked by a German Shepherd. Each week Jess would upload personalised videos for us to follow, specifically tailored to suit Wilson and our needs. She has given us the tools to know what to do in different situations and she is always there on the end of the phone if I need help. We are extremely grateful to Jess for her advice and support.
One month on from adopting our border collie, he started becoming aggressive and territorial. Jess’s knowledge, observations and advice were spot on. He is now a very happy little dog and is relaxed around our visitors and guests.
Sue & Mark
When we met Jess, our border collie had just turned 1. We were scared to go near her at times and had a negative experience with another trainer. Jess took the time to understand our situation and did not make us feel judged. We put all our trust into her and it transformed our relationship with our lovely collie. All our friends and family have noted what a lovely dog Olive is now – and we are so grateful.
