What the humans say

Our customer feedback

121 Dog Training

These sessions are offered to individuals and families who are either struggling with their dog’s behaviour, or are in need of some extra help with obedience. The most frequent behaviours that we train are as follows:

  • Poor recall
  • Pulling on the lead
  • Poor manners in the home (ie. jumping up, mouthing, barking)
  • Noise or enviromental sensitivity/anxiety
  • Reactivity to other dogs
  • Reactivity to people

If you or your dog is struggling with any of these, don’t hesitate to drop us a message!

As with all of our sessions, we work solely in your home and the environments that your dog displays the behaviour. There is no point in training behaviours in a training hall and not generalising them to other spaces by training in lots of environments, the result is a dog who is well behaved everywhere.

Puppy Training

We now offer Puppy Packages, which are exclusively available to people who have puppies aged 8 weeks – 6 months. They will cover everything you could possibly need to know about your puppy including, but not limited to the following:

  • How your puppy learns – with this knowledge you can train any behaviour!
  • Loose lead walking – the difference between heel and just good manners.
  • Socialisation – what to do, and more importantly, what not to do!
  • Home manners – how to greet guests, deal with any toileting issues or unwanted chewing, and how to create a relaxed dog whilst in the home.
  • Obedience – sit, down, stand, wait, hand target! Plus, any extra tricks you want to teach your little one just for fun.
  • Recall – One of the most important things that your puppy will ever learn!
  • Focus – How to build focus and engagement in different environments.

Not only this, but you will receive advice and support on the phone and through email for up to 6 months after your package has finished. What are you waiting for? Get Started now!

Group Dog Training

These are held in groups of 3 or 4, giving us the opportunity to have other family members watching. In group sessions, you and your dog will be placed with appropriate others of similar abilities and the dogs of similar temperaments.

In group sessions, we focus on one or two common problems and these are addressed as a group. It is the perfect way to work around distractions in a controlled environment.

  • Examples of things we work on are as follows:
  • Recall
  • Loose lead walking
  • Jumping up
  • General obedience
  • Leave it
  • Coping with stress in environments
  • Focus around distractions
