Private Training Lessons/ Behaviour Consultations

Sometimes a dog isn’t ready to go into a group class and would benefit from some 1:1 training first to put the foundations in place. Or maybe there’s a particular area you want to work on i.e. recall and we can focus the lesson purely on that area.

Dogs can suffer from a wide range of behavioural issues such a noise phobias, separation anxiety, fear of other dogs, nervousness around strangers to name a few. During a behaviour consultation, I would look at what the dog is doing and how we can change that behaviour into a more desirable behaviour. This involves taking a full background history, looking at day to day home life, when the problem presents itself, what has already been tried and then work through some methods and put plans in place to change the behaviour.

Casual Classes (Non-award based)

Not everyone wants to, or is ready for the Kennel Club Good Citizen Award classes so I have some classes which are more relaxed and cover a huge range of training areas. Classes available at the moment include: Breakfast Club and Labrador Club
