Numbers are kept small, this is to ensure that you get individual attention and your puppy is not overwhelmed, but has a fun learning experience. Large classes tend to be chaotic and can often create more problems than they solve!
(The group classes can be attended without the 1 to 1 session for £80, provided you have prior knowledge of 'marker/clicker training' and do not want assistance with the behavioural advice covered in the 1 to 1. However, the sessions are designed to complement each other).
- An intensive 1 to 1 session at your home.
This session can be held before your pup is fully vaccinated. Getting you started with training techniques, tackling puppy behaviours such as biting, chewing, toilet training, stealing, confidence building, socialisation, being left alone etc.
This session is held in your home, where potential issues can be averted or resolved in situ.

1 to 1 Puppy Training
If your lifestyle isn't compatible with weekly training classes, there is the option of 1 to 1 training - in your home, the park or the training hall.
As well as learning modern training techniques, such as shaping and capturing behaviour, you will be encouraged to think about the world, specifically your lifestyle, from your puppy's point of view.
Preparing your dog to cope with possible stresses in their life and teaching them the skills to make good choices in any given situation are fundamental to a happy and contented life in your family.
Initial 1 to 1 (allow 2hrs) - £50
Initial 1 to 1 plus 2 further 1hr sessions - £120
Initial 1 to 1 plus 4 further 1hr sessions - £170
Pre-Puppy Advice Session.
Not 100% sure which puppy is right for your life-style? Are you worried about puppy crying on the first night keeping the household awake? How to introduce your new addition to the cat? or perhaps it's your first puppy and it's all a bit overwhelming?
This session is perfect for those who want to avoid making the common mistakes which can contribute to problems developing. It provides a no-nonsense, realistic picture of the amount of preparation and work involved in getting it right, first time.
This session is £25 via Zoom or £30 in person for approximately 1hr. This includes hand-outs.
If you wish to attend puppy classes, NOW is the time to find and book a class, before puppy arrives! Meet the trainer and attend a session if possible to ensure that you are happy with the methods and course content.
