One-to-one sessions

Can't make it to classes or have a problem that you would like working on? Just got a puppy and can't wait for classes to start? Why not have a private one-to-one session tailored to your needs?


I will come to your house or meet you at another location, depending on what your and your dog or puppy's needs are.


I can offer private training sessions to get you and your dog through the essential "life skills" that all dogs need - loose-lead walking, great recall etc.


I can also offer advice for puppy owners on any issues you may be having such as toilet training, socialisation, and getting started with learning the basics to get you off on the right start.


And I can also help with behavioural issues.


I will assess the problem and I will advise you how to deal with the issues that you are having with your dog. 


For example, poor recall, puppy biting, poor recall, lunging at other dogs, fearful around strangers.


Consultation session lasts approximately one hour and is swiftly followed by an email report of what we covered and how it is to be tackled in an easy-to-follow format. Follow-up sessions are shorter and priced accordingly.


Each dog - and each issue - is different so there is no fixed amount of lessons you may require. 


Cost £50 for first consultation, next sessions priced individually depending on what you require but usually shorter session for less money). Please call or text 07802 967449 to discuss or contact me via the email form.
