Online dog training

Kind, fair and effective dog training, while having fun with your dog!


Currently, we are unable to get out and about as much as we normally would, with our dogs.  This may be shorter walks, or it may be that you cannot risk leaving the home at all.  It is important that we still occupy our dogs brain during this time, to prevent behaviour problems occurring due to boredom.  Of course, it is also a great way to increase your bond, have fun, and maintain your mental wellbeing too.

I am offering three options for online training during this time, either private training sessions, joining a Facebook group with weekly training tasks for 12 weeks, webinars, and Facebook Live sessions, or enrolling onto a 6 week beginners course online.

As I am unable to get out there any physically help people in any way, due to being in the vulnerable group, I have decided that I would do my part by offering the private and 12 week courses at 25% off.  I am hoping this will help dog owners to continue with their dog's training thought this mentally, emotionally, and financially hard time.

This means that you will only pay £30 per hour for private sessions, and £30 per month for group sessions.

The 6 week beginners course is £60 +VAT so £72 in total.  This is equivalent to only £12 per class.


Online training sessions are conducted via Zoom, an online video conferencing platform.  It is really simple to use and requires no set up at your end.  I just email you an access link and off we go.

You are able to email me video's of your progression, or sticking points, before the session, if you are unsure how to share during the Zoom call, along with your wishes for the focus of the session.

You will also be emailed resources required, for further reading or watching, after the session.

The beauty of having session via Zoom is that I can be much more flexible over the time of sessions, as well as it meaning that distance is no problem.

An initial 1-2-1 via Zoom is £90 for the 2 hour session, and includes access to a Google resource folder.  Alternatively why not take advantage of the great offer on courses at the moment?

I am also able to offer the following usual training programmes (modified) through our private Zoom sessions: 

  • 6 Week Private Puppy or Beginner Course (7 hours) - £183.75, a saving of £61.25
  • 6 Week Fantastic Fido, Assistance Task Training (7 hours) - £183.75, a saving of £61.25
  • 3 Week Follow On sessions, for both - £75 (save £5 per session), a saving of £30 

The above all include the 25% off the normal price.

We are able to continue to work towards the APDT Good Companion Awards Scheme, however, assessment sessions would still need to take place in person.



I am excited to announce that I can now offer you a 6-week remote Beginner / Level 1 dog training course, all for the same price as normal group training classes, and you get lots of BONUSES included free of charge.

Bonuses include:
⭐️ 3 FREE webinars by top professionals in their field
⭐️ Facebook Live session with a qualified and experienced behaviourist and trainer.
⭐️ Exclusive Facebook Community for course members
⭐️ Monthly competitions
⭐️ Discounts off other services and webinars

So, what will you learn?

I have teamed up with some of the best professionals in the industry, to offer you guidance of teaching your dog all of the basic life skills, including:

⭐️ Being able to sit and stay when asked,
⭐️ Settling and chilling when you have visitors or are out and about (eventually!),
⭐️ Coming back to you – even when they see wildlife to chase,
⭐️ Walking nicely on a lead,
⭐️ Having the fastest fetch out,
⭐️ Leaving yummy food – even the goodies the kids have dropped on the floor!
⭐️ Listening to what you say and
⭐️ Having the most amazing tricks to show your friends and family what a clever boy or girl they are, after those weeks of social distancing!

Why not take a look for yourself and start your training today?


I am currently busybuilding an online community, which is a "social learning" group.  There are 12 "units" simply called Week 1 to 12.  Although I have given each unit a week number, you can choose to work through in order or just pick and choose.  You can even take 24 weeks or more should you wish! 

There are different topics, with more than one feature per week.  You will find: 

  • Lifeskills Training
  • "Obedience" Training
  • Trick Training
  • Parkour Training
  • United Wellbeing Webinars
  • Guest Speaker Webinars
  • Enrichment Games & Ideas
  • Friday Night Live Sessions
  • Competitions
  • Printable Resources
  • Special Offers
  • and LOTS of Support!

You may even decide to join this online community as well as having private Zoom consults! 

Access to this fantastic online resource is only £90 during the Covid-19 social distancing period.  It is worth so much more, however, I want to help as many dog owners as possible!  That is right, ALL of this for only £7.50 per week! 

This service is currently still being produced - do get in touch if you would like to be notified once it is launched though.
