PRIVATE consults & training

We understand that not everyone has the time or schedule to attend a 5-week group class . We have several options to choose from - a one-off 2-hour consult to deal with a specific behaviour issue, 60-min training consult or a 4 x 60 minute course to give your dog the full basic obedience schooling in your own home or local park.
We have a unique Puppy Preparation Consultation for families or individuals who are planning the addition of a new puppy into the family.  We can also advise on breed suitability to your family's particular lifestyle and have details of responsible, quality breeders whose puppy's we have trained in addition to rescue organisations we work with.

Loose Lead Walking 60min Practical Training Session at your own home location

Many many owners experience the frustration of setting out for a nice walk with your dog but instead endure an unpleasant, arm-pulling experience that is uncomfortable for both owner and dog. For some owners, the problem is so bad, it leads to our companion dogs not being exercised and socialized sufficiently which may lead to more behavior problems, or worse, surrender to the pound or rescue.

Our 60-minute intensive training session will give you & your dog the practical skills required to develop and progress loose-lead walking together. 

 

Topics:
- Exercise & Socialisation
- Motivation & Rewards
- Practical Loose-lead techniques
- Loose-lead walking with distractions
- Useful Loose-lead equipment
