Not all problems can be resolved with attending a group class. There are times when your dog’s issues would be best addressed by working with you and your dog alone, perhaps in your own home. An initial consultation with an experienced, qualified behavioural trainer is supported by written materials and tailored notes to help find a solution best fitted to your dog’s needs. Common issues we address by private consultation include house-soiling, destructive behaviour, barking, fence running, fearfulness and on-lead aggression to name just a few.

An opportunity to tailor the basics of a good puppy upbringing to your own situation. Home based advice on housetraining, chewing, nipping and biting, play and early training. Perfect for the newer puppy owner, to iron out any specific questions, to encourage younger family to be involved, or as part of the preparation before your new pup has actually arrived.

Let the experts come to your home and train your dog for you. A better solution for training issues when you are too busy or struggle trying to make progress yourself. Take the Lead Training packages will kick start a better relationship – teaching your dog to walk nicely on a lead, come back when called, wait nicely while visitors arrive, or help work on problematic phobias, fears or aggressive behaviour. Conducted with 4-5 daily or near-daily visits, over a condensed period. Packages include a handover session to pass on the skills achieved, so you too enjoy the benefits of your dog’s new training skills.
