Dog Training

Individual, private lessons, with training plans tailored to your dog, with a qualified Animal Behaviour Technician.

Suitable for dogs of all ages

One to One Training For Older Dogs

We understand that not all dogs enjoy training in a class environment.  They may find it too exciting, too overwhelming, too distracting or they could lack confidence or suffer from anxiety, all of which means they will find it difficult to learn.  There are also some training problems that can be harder to address in a group setting and are better suited to one on one personal training.

We also understand that many people have to work shifts, which can make attending a class on a regular set day and time can be difficult.

In these circumstances, our private one to one lessons are ideal, as we can arrange a time and a day to suit you and your dog.

These sessions can be at your home in your garden, in a local park, or we can arrange access to a secure, private field.

One to One Training For Puppies

These one to one sessions are designed to get your puppy off to the best start possible!

It is never too early to start training your puppy and it is vitally important to ensure a well-rounded dog that puppies are exposed to a wide variety of people, places and sounds between birth & 16 weeks.

You should definitely NOT wait until their vaccinations are complete and the puppy can attend training classes, as many unwanted behaviours and bad habits can be created and picked up between bringing your puppy home and starting classes.  Prevention is much better than cure and it is far better to train your puppy correctly from day one and avoid problems, rather than have to re-train behaviours and break bad habits later on.

These one to one sessions are held at your own home and cover the most common topics that owners need help with, such as

  • Puppy biting
  • House and crate training
  • Socialising and habituating your puppy
  • Mental enrichment and Keeping puppies entertained

We will also show you how to begin teaching your puppy

  • Responding to its name
  • Sit
  • How to accept handling
  • How to settle
  • Recall
  • Leave objects they shouldn’t have
  • Getting used to a collar and lead
  • Walk nicely on the lead without pulling

We will listen to what concerns you have with your dog’s training, answer your questions and give you straightforward and practical solutions to teach your dog. We will show you how to improve and strengthen your bond with your dog, with reward-based, positive reinforcement training using treats, toys, play and praise in order to increase the frequency of the behaviours we want.

These methods ensure that your dog thoroughly enjoys learning, and will also make him more responsive and attentive and in turn more obedient.

One to one lessons also include email support and information handouts so you can continue to work with your dog in your own time.
