Private Training

Award Winning Training  with over 20 years experience in the industry. Reward based techniques using behavioural approaches and obedience training to help you get the most out of your dog – at any age!

Group training is great for regular practice and the opportunity to work around the distraction of other dogs.  However, you may prefer some one to one help so you can focus on your dogs training programme in more detail or because a class environment may not be suitable for them.

Packages rather than one off sessions are offered, ensuring an effective programme of training is delivered to help you get the most out of your commitment.

Private training areas covered for home visits:
