If you need help with a training problem (e.g. jumping up, pulling on the lead, not coming when called…)

Who is it for?

For owners who think their dog needs more training in one or more areas and would like someone to come to their home and train their dog – and themselves too.

For rescue dogs who might not be suitable to attend group training classes and would benefit more from one-on-one training sessions at home.

What to expect?

  • we start with an initial assessment/lesson (1-1.5 hrs) to understand your dog’s behaviour and explain some theory for you (dog body language, learning theory and how to train dogs using best-practice methods)
  • follow-up lesson are usually shorter (45 min-1 hr, depending on the training problem/s and your preference)
  • to teach new behaviours like “stay”, “come”, “leave it”, walking on a loose leash or mat settling
  • detailed and customised training plan sent after the initial assessment/lesson
  • if owners prefer the trainer to teach their dog, they don’t need to be present during the training lessons (but a “handover session” is still needed for consistency)

If your dog is displaying leash reactivity, excessive barking, separation-related behaviours, resource guarding or any behaviour problems, please book a behaviour consultation.
