I AM VERY PROUD TO BE A QUALIFIED DOG TRAINER AND FULL MEMBER OF THE IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers)
Puppy Home Consult - 60-90 minute one-to-one at owner’s house. This can be arranged pre-vaccinations to
get you started with training.
Course 1 - 6 Week Course in Basic Training and Socialisation - Puppies aged from 10 weeks
Course 2 - 6 Week Course in Advanced Training. Dogs and Puppies from 18 weeks
Course 3 - 6 Week Course in Puppy Agility - Puppies aged 20 weeks - 10 months
I strongly believe that puppy and dog training should be fun, reward based training. In my classes you will be taught how to communicate with your dog without the need for shouting.
Training basic commands will be taught as games rather than strict discipline, therefore keeping your puppy interested and tuned in to you. This method gives the best lasting results as your puppy learns to listen to you and wants to please you.
Such training as teaching your puppy manners when letting you go through the door first is done without the need for any command at all, using simple and kind methods, we teach your puppy to ALWAYS allow you through doorways before them without you ever having to ask or tell them, only gentle reminders if needed!
A lot of the time we humans use our voice too much around our dogs, to our dogs this can become almost like a white noise. Using our voice when appropriate, we keep our dogs tuned in to us and listening when asked to. When I train, I like to use voice commands only when needed. Your puppy/dog will learn a lot faster if we let them think and decide for themselves what we are expecting of them, then plenty of praise when they get it right. This leaves lasting results, rather than having to tell our puppys/dogs what to do all of the time.
Puppy Home Consults - A 60-90 minute home consultation for £70
We can cover the following:
Course 1 is puppy socialisation, problem solving and prevention - £70 for a 6 week course. Suitable for puppies from 10 weeks.
On this course you will cover
Course 2 is Advanced Training. Suitable for dogs and puppies from 18 weeks. £70 for a six week course.
On this course we will cover
Course 3 is Puppy Agility! - £70 for 6 week course. Suitable for puppies from 20 weeks to 10 months.
A six week course introducing your puppy to exquipment to include jumps, tyre, tunnel, weaves, dog walk and see-saw in a fun and safe environment.
This course also revises exercises learnt in the previous course - to include walking to heel; door manners; recall practice and the sit and down commands so you can continue with their basic training. We also work on longer distance waits and stays which are very important in agility.
All equipment is small and roughly a third of the normal size and jumps are kept very low so perfect for puppies!
The course is perfect if you're planning to take up agility at a later stage as an introduction as puppies tend to be more confident and will then remember the equipment when they go back to it later. The course is also great if you are after further training with your puppy and want to have some fun as sits and waits are an integral part of agility but all taught in a relaxed environment.
Note regarding payment - I ask for a £20 deposit to be made upon booking a course then the balance to be paid on your first class. I accept cash or bank transfers for consultation and courses. I am afraid I will no longer be accepting cheques. Consultation can be paid by cash at the end of your session or online before I arrive.
Please note, if booking on to a training course, you are charged for a six week course for the dates of that course. Classes missed will not be refunded but can be swapped if arranged in advance. This can only be offered if I have a space available on another course.
