With an emphasis on educating you and nurturing a strong bond between you and your dog, April offers force-free training using scientifically proven methods that are based on applied behaviour analysis. Having a sound knowledge of the science that governs learning, her goal is to promote positive reinforcement training by making it more accessible to members of the community, offering an alternative to the more traditional approaches to training.
With many dog breeds requiring regular grooming throughout their lifetimes, April is particularly passionate about dogs having positive grooming experiences. She works with owners and their puppies through “positive start to grooming” programmes using positive reinforcement training.
April Williams is the owner/director of ItsAllAbouttheHound Dog Services. She lives in Melbourne, Victoria, in Australia.
