BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS THROUGH FUN, UNDERSTANDING, AND TRUST.

BASIC DOG TRAINING (NON BEHAVIOURAL)

Are you looking to give your puppy the best start, or perhaps you would just like to be able to enjoy your walks without the stress of having your arm pulled and worrying about your dog running off?

If so, I offer several different options for foundation skill training as well as offering Owner Trained Assistance Dog support.

BLENDED LEARNING (ONLINE & IN PERSON)

Starting with a two hour Zoom consultation, where we discuss all of the theory side of giving your dog the best start, along with addressing all of your questions and problems, we then have in-person training sessions in your garden or local environment.

Woodland Trust - uffmoor Wood

Alongside the Woodland Trust, I shall be offering training FREE of charge for small, pre booked, groups of dog owners.

This is a new pilot scheme which is being trialled in Uffmoor Woods, near Halesowen.

ONLINE TRAINING 

Are you worried about risking in-person training, with the current Covid-19 pandemic?  Or perhaps you are unable to make training during daylight hours, through winter?

If so, online training could be for you.  One to One Zoom sessions, or pre recorded course options available.

Running low on time, patience, energy, or experience, when it comes to your dog's training needs?  

If so, I offer training walks where I take your dog and do the training for you.  You also get a Zoom session each week to keep you up to date with the training.
