ONE TO ONE

All training starts with a detailed diagnostic session, which gives us the opportunity to assess the problems that you are experiencing, to set goals and discuss what other changes may benefit your dogs overall health.

 

Once you have a clear path, the following tailored one to one sessions will be targeted to your goals and help you achieve the happy, balanced dog you seek. Sessions can be held at various locations dependant on your needs. 

If you are further afield but would still like to utilise our services we also offer virtual sessions.

IN-HOUSE TRAINING

In-house training is for dogs that need to work in a consistent structured environment for more intensive training. Existing clients may benefit from this service to top up their training or on occasions where the dog is unsuitable for mainstream care. Each day your dog will have 2 pack walks, play time and work towards their individual training goals. 

A calm and controlled environment, still with all the fun!

We have limited spaces for these courses and therefore offer a 5 day limit (Tuesday-Saturday). Extended stays may be considered case by case.

GROUP TRAINING

Group Walks:

Our group classes are a great opportunity for clients to carry on with their training in a structured pack setting and work on specific exercises with dogs of all different stages of training. Our team will be there on hand to support everyone and it is a great opportunity to meet others who have been through similar situations and work together throughout the classes. 

Puppy Courses:

Learn the basic foundations of dog training and learn along with others how to have a happy, balanced and well behaved pup.

DOG WALKING

Our training dog walks are carried out by one of our training staff for those who need a dog walker during the day but who's dog would benefit from a more one to one setting to continue to work on training.

 

Our team will collect your dog and take them out alone or where appropriate with one or two members of their own pack. These training walks will continue to follow the goals you have set in your diagnostic setting and will allow your dog to continue progressing through their training. 

For more information on our dog walking services that are on offer please contact us.

APPOINTMENT CHAPERONE

Do you need some support at your dogs appointments? 


We will accompany you and your dog to your booked appointment and assist you or handle the dog ourselves. Most vets and groomers are not trained or equipped to handle behavioral complications so let us help your dog be calm, safe and comfortable in those sometimes stressful situations. 

Milage not included

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What kind of training do you use?

We are best described as LIMA trainers (least intrusive, minimally aversive), however our training is always changing and evolving through research and experience. Our aim is always to build up your relationship with your dog by creating trust and respect with as minimal conflict as possible.

How many training sessions will I need?

This depends on several things like how quickly your dog learns, what behavioural problems you are facing and how quickly you pick up the training yourself. Generally for basic training for 1 dog we average 6 sessions and for 2 dogs anywhere from 8-10. The best thing to do is chat to one of our trainers after an initial assessment so they can give you an idea on how many sessions they think you may benefit from to reach your goals.

How often will I need to do sessions?

It is advised the first 2-3 sessions are week a part so you have time to practice in between. You can then move to once a fortnight generally for further training if needed. We also sometimes do longer gaps for clients that need a bit of a top up every now and then but don’t need regular sessions.
