    If allowed and it is safe to do so, training will take place at outside at this location allowing for us all to strictly apply the 2m+ social distancing measure and requirement.  In addition to this, I will be implementing a number of extra measures in order to protect us all from close contact etc. You will be notified of these in the joining email.

    Puppy course. This course is designed to provide you with the opportunity to train, learn, stimulate your puppy mentally, emotionally and physically and to have some fun together.

    Combined puppy video-consultation visit and course, £195. Please see below. In addition to the training course, I do provide a home visit service. This can be before, during or within 3 months of the end of the course attended, (to qualify for the combined price discount). 

    Video consultation.  Until the current crisis abates, I am really sorry, but I have made the decision to cancel all home visits during these troubling times.  It worries me that despite all the measures I do take that I might be the 1 responsible to bring this wicked and nasty virus in to your home.

    However, I am now providing a video conferencing service via WhatsApp, which although not the same as me bringing in your home, will still provide you with an effective and positive engagement with me.  I will be going through the same puppy profiling questionnaire that I would be using if I came to your home and answering all the questions you may have.  The only thing I can’t do is a physical look and check of your puppy.  Please do let me know if you would like to arrange a time/date for us to do this.  The call will last for about an hour and allows for the resolution/improvement of challenges that can sometimes occur with a new puppy such as: puppy nipping - chewing - house and crate training - feeding, diet etc - helping your puppy to settle in to its new home - children at home with a new puppy. (If applicable). The cost will be, £75 per hour.

    Training philosophy and method. It is my aim to guide all those that attend towards having an educated and happy puppy, by using positive re-enforcement and praising the puppy for responding in the right way. I do not believe in compelling a puppy to do something. A puppy will react far more readily and with a huge amount of eagerness, if it knows that there is going to be a positive result.

    During the course, attendees will learn how to teach their puppies fundamental skills, including verbal and visual signals for “sit” and “down”; a proper technique for lead-walking and recall; the most important exercise of all, including how to successfully introduce and use a whistle as a recall aid.
    We also cover; house/crate training, health issues, methods to reduce biting, stranger anxiety, fun and stimulating games and much more.

    For information to help get your started regarding house/crate training, daily routine and other new puppy challenges, please check, "training tips, help and advice" on the home page.

    (Subject to change.) I encourage all those involved with your puppy, family, friends, etc to attend and join in with the training. The minimum age to be the primary trainer within the course environment is 14 years; however, an adult must accompany them. There are plenty of opportunities for children under this age to participate during certain parts of the evening, under the direct supervision of their parent or guardian.

    Sorry this course is fully subscribed, please check next course for availability.
