One to One Classes & Courses
Sometimes group work does not suit
Sometimes no matter what you do, what books you read and approaches you take your puppy is just not doing what you expected them to be doing by now. Whether you are having issues with toilet training, play biting, or leaving your puppy alone for any length of time if your puppy isn't playing ball, its time to get some help.
Our Puppy Consultation sessions are one-to-one sessions where we come to your home and go through the problems you are having. We make sure that we understand your routines and living situation so that we can work on helping your puppy fit into your life while making changes so that your life can also suit your puppy.
We run this 60 minute session in your home as this is the most likely place that you will have puppy problems. There is no problem too small or silly, get in touch to see if this session will suit you, your family and your new puppy.
Sometimes it can be difficult to see what needs to be done when your dog starts to do something inappropriate or perhaps an old bad behaviour is getting worse. In these cases we take a step back and spend the time to analyse what is going on, why it is this way, and design a plan to sort it out.
This plan may be a set of private classes, it may be joining a group class, or sometimes a combination of both. There are some situations where we do some work in the assessment and with some practice and consistency, you don't need to do any more sessions. The key is to find out what is needed and make a start.
Assessments take place in the location of the main problems you are having so that may be your home, the local park, or your friend's house, depending on the issue.
Depending on the issues you are having, sometimes it is most appropriate to work one-to-one with your trainer rather than in a group setting. When you are in a private class we are there solely to work on your problems. Your training plan is completed as part of an assessment or as previously arranged with your trainer.
For reactive or anxious dog sessions we tend to keep the sessions short to reduce stress on handler and dog. For general obedience and other general stress-free issues, we work in full hour blocks.
