Why do One to One/Private Dog Training?
It may be difficult to commit to a fixed weekly class session for dog training,
You may like to train as a family including your children and anyone who will help take care of your dog.
Or possibly the thought of being in a group may well feel overwhelming to you and your dog.
Dogs like ourselves may feel stressed and this is where individual training either at home or outdoors is the best approach.
We can then tailor a training plan and work at you and your dog’s pace – a flexible solution.
What DOG TRAINING SERVICES we offer:
Pre- Parenting –getting a new puppy is an exciting time but also can be overwhelming.
We can discuss how to set up your house, what to buy, advise how to puppy proof your home, discuss sleeping arrangements, toilet training, puppy biting and much more.
We also advise on how to deal best with ”The Journey Home” and discuss options for Puppy’s first night
Preparing your dog for a new baby – this is an important issue and one that needs to be dealt with long before your baby arrives! Your dog needs to be happy with all the changes that a new baby means
New puppy visits and training your puppy when it is a little older – we can very soon after your puppy’s arrival and help you to sort out a routine for it and advice on fair boundaries for puppy and also children and to teach them how to interact together without getting bitten. All puppies bite and we have to teach them not to!
We will teach your children how to train their new puppy which will elevate their status from playmates to teachers and guides.
Toilet Training advice will be based on your environment and will include some dietary advice.
Sleeping arrangements sleep at night can cause worries but we will offer suggestions to suit your household
Jumping up, boisterous behaviour, and mouthing and biting, destructive chewing, pulling at clothes, stealing things can be unpleasant but are quite normal for a lot of puppies and we can show you how to teach your puppy self-control.
Other pets -We can help you introduce a puppy to your older dog cat or other pets so that they can live happily together
How to aim to avoid separation distress – your puppy will need to learn to spend some time on it’s own. It is a gradual process as puppies and dogs are very social but they do need to be comfortable when you have to take the children to school or pop to the shops etc
Older Puppies and Dogs– around 11 to 12 weeks upwards your puppy is almost ready to go out or already having full vaccination immunity. We need to start training using Foundation Exercises so that when you do get to the park your dog will be able to do what you ask amidst all the distractions in the park if it does not do so at home.

Loose Lead Walking – we never jerk or yank your dog and do not use slip leads, check chains, half checks or any other aversive gadgets
