Training Sessions

Bringing a dog into the home has its problems and we all want our dogs to relaxed and happy, a magic of a new puppy is time cherished and we want to make that time a lasting memorable experience you and them. A well-trained dog is a content dog.

We love helping puppies become a socialised member of the household. We will teach you to train your puppy their most important life skills that include walking well on a loose lead, not jumping up, a sharp recall as well as teaching them to sit, stay, house training, boundary games etc. We can also advise on many other aspects of puppy behaviour and socialisation. We use a combination of clicker training and games based training. 

We can also help with general training and problems with older dogs and rescue dogs, please contact us to see how we can help.

We suggest an initial 2-hour session followed by follow up sessions of one hour. We can also offer telephone consultations.


Telephone consultations are not suitable for behaviour related problems, but we can discuss training issues and offer cost-effective advice without the need to travel.


Games-Based Training


Turn dog training struggles into strengths with games-based training that has been popularised by vet behaviourist Dr. Tom Michell and internationally renown dog training instructor Lauren Langman (Absolute Dogs). Our head trainer is certified by them as a game based trainer and we teach many of the games that they are known for. You would also receive access to a number of

e-books that have details of many of these fun and rewarding 3-minute games. Remember There's a Game For That!!
