is conducted in one-to-one sessions.*
One-to-one sessions are ideal for dogs and owners who require specific
training methods i.e. basic obedience, working trials, gun dog and
specialist training for dogs for the disabled. Problem dogs are
our speciality. With years of experience of the psychology of dogs,
we can sort out most problems, anything from aggression to sheep
We take a very
flexible approach to the training methods that we adopt, as every
dog is as individual as its owner. Each dog will be trained using
methods according to its temperament, response to certain stimulus
and other key indicators.
Only a level
of training that is comfortable for both dog and owner will be used
and this could be anything from food reward and clicker training to
counter-conditioning, systematic desensitisation or flooding.
Both dog and owner will be taught using only scientifically based
and fully researched methods gained from a lifetime's experience of
One-to-one sessions are carried out either at your home or at a venue
suitable to the type of training required.
Group training classes consist of:-
PUPPY/BEGINNER CLASS these are essential for puppies or new owners and have been specially formulated over many years to include socialisation with other dogs and people as well as incorporating the sights and sounds that all puppies/young dogs need to get used to and accept. Lots of props and stooges are used in a strictly controlled but fun way so as to cause no stress to the dogs. All owners will be taught not only how to handle their dogs but also canine first aid, the law relating to dogs and basic canine psychology.
INTERMEDIATE CLASS This class is for the owner that wants that little extra or needs help with problems
ADVANCED CLASS this is for the owner that wants to progress even further with their dogs training and incorporates such things as sendaways,redirection. Retrieving and search exercises.
Kennel Club Good Citizen assessments are held at regular intervals and guest Training Instructors may also make an appearance.
