Supporting you & your dog
General or Specific Training Needs
One to one dog training is the perfect solution to work on skills or stop unwanted behaviour.
Over the years I have worked with many different dog breeds, mixes and rescue dogs and can bring my experience and knowledge to help you get the best from your relationship with your dog.
Each stage of your dog's life will present different training issues that I can teach you how to work with to enable you to have the perfect dog for you and your situation.
I can help with all the usual issues that are breed or personality related such as jumping up, over excitement, steeling food, house training, recall, cats, livestock, children, babies, socialization with other dogs, socialization with people, traffic, and a variety of situations, lunging on the lead, hunting and so on.
Get in touch for a consultation with your dog and get a tailor-made package that is perfect for both you and your dog.
On average a training session lasts an hour and I will work directly with your dog, helping you to build the skills to train your dog.
How I work
Old dogs can learn new tricks! Young or old, big or small!
I can work with any age dog and any breed to make your life and that of your dog’s more fun, rewarding, and enjoyable.
To begin with I offer a free 15-minute pre-consultation phone call, in which we agree what is required.
If you book me in, I then come to your home and observe you and your dog in your own environment to have a deeper, more personalized consultation, going over lifestyle and routines.
This is followed by an hour’s training session. All my training methods are ethical and based on positive rewards, placing the dog’s welfare at the centre of my work.
Following the training session, I will send on a personalized follow up report and training manual to support your continued work with your dog. In addition to this you will be able to book further training sessions if needed. Free follow up phone calls and email support, is included to ensure success with your dog.
I offer one-off training sessions, multiple training sessions and packages to meet all your needs. (Prices are shown lower in the page.)
We can start with your puppy from 12 weeks old. Puppies love this work as much as I do!
Create good habits for a lifetime of happiness.
I will design a 6-month personalized program for you, your unique situation and lifestyle to match your dog's breed and personality.
This early work is essential for ensuring a positive start with your dog and will include house training, recall, socialization, early obedience, separation work and much more.
Puppy work is one of the keys to a happier, healthier dog and I will give you the tools and techniques to achieve everything you want. I work in a kind, calm way with your pup.
Working with the Whole Family
We often get a dog as a family pet and with everyone working in the same way this can be amazingly rewarding to enrich the whole family.
I can offer sessions working specifically with the children in the family so they become are confident handlers which will enhance your experience of a family dog.

I will be available to offer support on the phone and by email as you continue to work with your dog on your own.

Many people find that a one-off visit, training session and support is all that they need with their dog.

Family Dog Training
£150.00 / 1.5hr
This is a ideal, most positive way to work with you dog.
Often, we find different family members giving off different messages or expectations to our dogs and this is confusing and conflicting for the dog.
When everyone in the family is involved in training the dog or puppy the confidence in the dog and family members is optimum and everyone is happy!
Often children become scared of the puppy in the family as it goes through phases of teething, jumping up or getting over excited but learning how to be with and around the puppy as well as getting on board with the training will ensure positive relationships are formed and maintained for life.
In this package I will do a short phone call consultation and then arrange to come to the family home. This will need to be for a couple of hours while I will have an in-person consultation and then work with the whole family to positively train the dog or puppy and work on issues raised.
Additional follow up visits and training sessions can be priced and added on if needed.
I will write a family dog report and training manual and will be available for phone and email follow ups.
Multiple Dog Training
£150 / 1.5hr
We often have more than one dog in our home and so training can become more of a challenge!
A dog that didn't previously bark can learn to, and behaviour problems get copied.
Even the basics of obedience, recall, socialization, and lead work need more focus when there is more than one dog in the home.
Perhaps you want to work on different issues with each dog?
You may have an old dog and are introducing a puppy? You may have siblings or mum and pup? Want to add a rescue to your pack? This is all manageable and easy with a tailor-made training program and manual that I will create for you.
After the initial phone call, I will come for a consultation to go over all your daily routines and lifestyle needs as well as your dog's behaviours, habits and breed related issues.
We will then have a 90-minute training session with both the dogs in your home, garden and in a walk if needs be. I will work with you to support you training your dogs and trying out new and different methods.
I will then be able to write you the training manual and send this to you to support your continued work for the next 6 months.
If you need follow up sessions with your dogs together or on their own, we can discuss this.
I will be available for follow up phone call and email support.
