One to one sessions

 

We offer a range of one to one options to suit your situation.

Perhaps your puppy or dog finds group training too much? Or maybe your dog is reactive and you need some help.

Maybe you are struggling with excessive barking, your dog pulling when out on walks, recall, jumping up or other issues at home or out and about.

No matter what the reason, book an initial 1 1/2 hour session with us and we will come out to you and help you work on a solution for you and your dog.

The first session will take place in your home where we will discuss the issues you have and make a start on improving the situation.

You will then be given time to work on this and then you can book as many follow up sessions with us as you need to continue your training.

These will last one hour and may take place in your home or out somewhere depending on what you would like to work on.

If the issues you want to work on are training related, for example, recall, loose lead walking, sit etc then you will need to book a training session.

If the issues you are having cannot be sorted through training, for example if your dog is anxious around other dogs, training them to sit will not solve this, then you will need to book a behavioural session.

Please do get in contact if you are unsure which to book and I would be happy to advise.

I also offer packages which include and initial session and four follow up sessions with a call in between sessions to check on your progress. It works out a little bit cheaper than booking individually but it also helps to keep you motivated to stay on track with practicing and training if the next session is booked in. We all know that life has a habit of getting in the way sometimes and whatever the problem the sooner you work on it the better.

All the methods I use and teach you are based on modern, science based techniques that do not cause suffering or unecessary stress to your dog. There will be no collar jerking, choke chains or other nasties that use out-dated techniques.

 

Puppy home visits

 

Welcoming a new puppy into your home can be a daunting prospect. Have you bought the right harness, the right food, have you made everywhere safe for little mouths and so on.

I will come to your home and talk you through anything you are unsure of before you get your puppy.

Perhaps you already have a dog in the house and you want to make sure that the puppy settles in without upsetting the older dog?

 


We can help you make the transition for both dogs as positive and stress free as possible.

Once puppy has settled in you may want to check in to make sure that everything is going in the right direction for you and the puppy so again, we can help with that and iron out any creases along the way. It is always best to start as soon as possible with teaching your puppy how to be part of your family. It is far easier to get them into good habits from the beginning than try to change bad habits later down the line.
