What's Included?

Hi! I'm James, and my sole aim is to solve your dog-based headaches through positive reinforcement training and my 6 years of dog behaviour and training knowledge. I have multiple dog-related qualifications, including: an Animal Science BSc, Dog Behaviour & Training Level 3, Canine First Aid level 2, and an enhanced DBS. In addition to my 4 years of experience of in location dog sitting and facilitating therapy dogs in schools. Receive a personal training session tailored to your individual training needs in the comfort of your own home or chosen location. Carefully observing and addressing your dog’s training issues in situ will give me the best chance of creating the most successful training programme for you and your dog. The costs will also include a full training report with detailed suggested training methods and follow-up zooms and phone calls that will fully support you and your dog during training. £35 per hour (subject to change, but once booked, it’s locked in). The initial session tends to last between 1.5 and 2 hours to allow for thorough observation and cross-examination. However, any subsequent sessions tend to be shorter (30 minutes–1 hour), but if additional training is required or the problem becomes more complex or severe, it may be longer. We can address any training issue, including but not limited to: • Training Walks/Loose-Lead Training • Recall Training • Puppy Training • Toilet Training • Trick Training • Shaping Assistance • Jumping Up • Biting • Excessive Barking • Chewing • Unwanted Begging • Behavioural Issues Coming Soon I can help; just book a free Zoom or phone call chat, and we can start solving your doggy dilemma straight away.
