Neil created "The Dogzbody Method" of dog training to help dog handlers develop the required skills to better manage and train their dogs. The method is a LIMA (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive https://apdt.com/about/position-statements/ ) method that is simple for dog parents to learn and deliver and leads to well-trained, disciplined dogs and handlers.
