YOUNG PUPPY 1 to 1 - In your home/garden.

This session gets you started with learning training techniques, tackling puppy behaviours such as biting, chewing, sleeping through, toilet training, stealing, socialising, being left alone etc. 

OLDER PUP 1 to 1 - In your home or in the park.

As your puppy matures, they may struggle to focus, some unwanted habits can creep in and they are beginning to see the world a little differently. 

This 1 to 1 session is completely bespoke to you and your dog to enable your bond to develop and confidence and understanding in each other to grow.

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)                                     -  £45

Initial 1 to 1 plus 3 further 1hr sessions           -  £140

(Includes 6 week online training course)

        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 £30 (£25 via Zoom) for approximately 1 to 1.5 hrs. 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.
