Training for dogs, Solutions for Owners

“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.”

Mark Twain

My Services

 

Dogs are so special but sometimes without the right training owners may feel that they have ‘lost control’.  Does your dog ever:

  • Dig holes in the garden 
  • Wee/Poo anywhere but on the grass
  • Jump up on you and your visitors
  • Bark for ‘no reason’
  • Chew on anything other than their toys
  • Bite your hands, legs and clothes
  • Totally ignore you when you call them
  • Pull constantly on the lead when walking

The list could go on and on, but don’t worry, I can help you and your furry friend.

Pre-Prep Class: Puppies 8-16 weeks old

With a class of no more than 6 puppies we cover many of the issues dog owners go through as mentioned above. We work with you and your puppy to provide workable solutions for you.  Basic command training such as sit, down, stay, recall and how to walk on lead are all part of the class together with playtime for your puppy as they learn how to socialise with other puppies.

Prep Class Puppies: 16-24 weeks old

serv2

Puppies who have passed our Pre-Prep training classes join this class to further what they have learnt and to learn new things.

In our Prep Class, your dog will learn how to walk through a gate or door on lead without pulling the owner over, how to overcome dog distraction, safe road crossings, long distance recall, fetch and leave to name a few. 

Sadly there is no off lead play!!

High School Classes: Dogs over 24 weeks old

We are able to offer smaller sized classes for dogs of all ages who have had limited  or no training. 

We assist you with getting your dog not to pull you on lead, not to lunge or react towards other dogs, to focus on you, basic obedience and provide you with advice and tools to get the best from your dog.

Private lessons

serv4

Sometimes the best way of establishing the best solution for a dog’s  behavioural issue is for me to come to your home and assist you with a customized one-on-one  private training session

It sometimes just takes a lesson or maybe more to see what the issue is and we can advise on how best to proceed from there. 

The Costs

Whilst we really want the whole family to be part of this exciting time, no-one under the age of 12 can be left in charge of a dog.  Happily children can take turns with parents during the classes, but must not be dropped off with the dog and having no adult supervision.
