Giving your puppy the best possible start to life means making a jump-start with training! It is never too young to start training your puppy and in fact the first few weeks that you have your new puppy are the most important in the dogs whole life. Your new dog is transitioning through critical periods of development where they are learning about the world more quickly than they will at any other point in their lives. This is the time your puppy needs to be completely immersed in new situations with calm and gentle guidance from you. Socialisation and relationship building through training at this early age is key to shaping the way your dog will interact with people and dogs in the future.
My specialist area of dog training is in guiding new dog owners through this critical period. I provide a one of a kind 24 hour service where I am available to people enrolled onto my puppy course at any time they may have questions or concerns during these first few weeks. From helping you choose the right crate, to answering panicked questions on toilet training, I am here to help. It is this reliable on-call support that really helps new dog owners to relax into the experience and enjoy this time with their puppy!
I am often called in to help people in the process of choosing their new puppy. Finding a puppy with an energy level and temperament matched with that of your pre-existing household is crucial. This service, combined with a pre-puppy arrival home check ensures you’ll have provided your new best friend with the right guidance from day one!
I offer both a pay-as-you-go option, and a bulk buy of discounted classes (please see my ‘Puppy Packages’ on the left).
Puppy Packages are my most popular option as we can work through a whole range of behaviours (nipping, toilet training, crating) whilst forming basic obedience and the all the foundations for the dogs later life. Sometimes, people are confident with managing their puppy but want to address an issue they’re struggling with and this is where I suggest booking a single session. Give me a call if your unsure and we can talk more about your options!
To me, there is nothing better than enhancing the relationship between owner and dog. Allowing people to better enjoy and deepen their relationship with pets is my ultimate work. From obedience training to dealing with challenging or aggressive cases, strengthening the bond between canine and humans is always the end goal.
In most cases of misbehaving dogs, it can be a simple case of miscommunication between owner and pet, with my expertise and guidance I can help turn things around and help build lasting relationships with your dog.
Traditional methods of dog training teach that we must forcefully dominate our pets, constantly asserting ourselves as Alpha. Whilst it is important to practice leadership, I believe in a consistently patient and calm approach that allows dogs to recognise me as the pack leader. With the correct knowledge and tools, you can do this too.
Central to my teachings is the importance of first listening to what the dog has to say. As a detached observer I am often able to pinpoint the stressor triggering the dog’s unwanted behaviour. From here, plan an achievable course of action for to renew a loving obedient relationship.
