If you are unable to come to group classes or would prefer not to – or if there is a specific issue you’d like us to help you with then we can come to you! We can travel to you and offer an individual approach to good dog obedience that suits you and your dog. We have a lot of knowledge and we are eager to share our dog training tips – just give us a call!

121 sessions are great to focus on specific issues or to work on perfecting a skill in a real-life environment. We always suggest that the first session is at your home but subsequently they can take place at a local park, town centre – wherever you can take your dog! They often work out better value for money than group classes (because of all the attention we can pay to specific problems).

No two private training sessions are the same – a typical week may include:

121 socialisation with a field of cows

  • Working with a child who was anxious about his dog’s safety
  • Working with a dog who had a phobia of going for walks (amazing progress made
  • Doing some recall sessions with dogs that were over-interested in other dogs
  • Having some sessions with rescue dogs who struggled to adapt to their new home.
  • Impromptu socialising lessons in a field of cows!

In addition to this general 1-2-1 private training, we run some specific packages;
see these links below:

Here’s a training challenge to try at home – spend an hour or so rewarding EVERY positive behaviour your dog or puppy does, watching you, greeting without jumping, laying down calmly, coming when called, ‘checking in’ with you on a walk, basically all the little things most of us can be guilty of overlooking. Doing this will not only make your dog want to repeat the positive behaviours more often, but should also make you more aware of noticing and rewarding the positive, not just the negative behaviours!

Cost:   £40 per hour, or £115 for three pre-paid sessions.

Tia 121-trainingNew Puppy Home Visit

As professional puppy trainers, we can visit you in your own home to answer any questions you may have, including what is the best way to tackle toilet training, how to stop puppy nipping, should you crate train your pup, how to encourage giving up/swapping toys and even get you started with some basic dog obedience. Puppy socialisation doesn’t get any better than this!

Here we have the lovely 12 week old Staffie pup Tia who gave Ami lots of lovely cuddles! Such huge progress made and lots of advice given in just one hour. Once again Ami was asked to move in for a week, maybe we should consider that as an extra option!
