Not all dogs will respond well in a class setting. Also for some who work erratic hours it may not be possible to attend all sessions on a course. I am able to offer one to one training appointments in these cases. We train you the skills to train your dog so that you have the skills to take the relationship with your dog forward without further training from us. Sometimes it is difficult to differentiate between training and behaviour so the following is an idea of what can be covered in a one to one training session:

 

Our business is your business. We do not arrive in marked vehicles advertising that you are seeing a dog trainer. We rely on our reputation to advertise our business, not yours.

Private training is charged at £35.00 per hour daytime rates for Denise. A first appointment is likely to last approx 1.5 hours. Rarely, follow on appointments may be required but mostly you will find one session is all that is required as I provide you with a training plan.

Sorry, but I only provide one to one training within a 20 mile round trip from Ferndown due to the amount of time it takes to travel and the shorter duration of the appointment.

I travel further for Behaviour consultations. If there is more than one party requiring a private training appointment together please call me as discounts can apply.

 

A trained dog is a happy dog!
