When you have a new puppy it can be very daunting. Many bad habits can be learned before your puppy is able to attend a puppy course. I offer home visits for those who feel they need more guidance and support prior to attending puppy classes.  The types of questions most people need help with are:

  1. Sleep routines

  2. Fearful puppies (urgently needs to be addressed)

  3. Bonding issues

  4. Feeding problems

  5. Early aggression (surprisingly common and should not be ignored)

  6. Puppy biting and chasing the children (very distressing for children and best resolved asap)

  7. Toilet training

  8. How to keep your puppy entertained before he can go outside for walks

  9. Early training

 

It is so often better to avoid getting into bad habits rather than to have to re-train later. If you would like Martin or me to come to you for a home visit please do give me a call on 01202 861340. We can only see you if you are within 10 miles of Ferndown. 

Martin's rates are £25.00 per hour and visits should normally last between 1.5 to 2 hours (so costs between £37.50 and £50.00) -  Martin can help with general puppy issues.

Denise's rates are £35.00 per hour - Denise should see you if your puppy is particularly fearful or is already showing any form of aggression.

A trained dog is a happy dog!

Paws in Hand can help hold your paws and hands right through from 8 weeks and beyond so that you can start teaching your puppy and learning how to socialise your new puppy and "Read dog" from the earliest stage.
