We are based near to Bournemouth in Dorset. 

To contact me by telephone please call Denise Nuttall on 01202 861340 or 07764 250554 or for puppy visits and puppy private training call Martin Nuttall on 01202 861340. For puppy visits and private puppy training (under 6 months) call Martin 01202 861340. Please be fair and do not expect us to give you free advice on the telephone. We can arrange a telephone consultation at a rate of £15.00 per half an hour. If a visit is considered necessary, then part of this cost would be offset against the cost of a visit. 

Hours of contact: 09.00- 18.00 daily except Saturdays (because I work the whole day and can't get back to you), Sundays and Mondays are my weekend. Due to working hours if you call on a Friday you are unlikely to hear back from me until Tuesday.

If I don't answer I'm afraid it is because I am in a consultation or travelling, or it is out of hours. Please leave a message though and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I may not be able to call you back on the same day due to call volumes and strange working hours but will call you as soon as possible.

To make an appointment it is best to phone me. Please do not text or e mail me to make an appointment.

To book classes the quickest way is to go to Book Classes. This process is quick and easy. Payment options are secure via paypal, debit card, credit card or via cheque. 

Please note that I am inundated with e mail requests for advice. I simply can't answer them. If you would like help please phone as priority is given to people who phone. E mail and text contact is designed for those who have already had a consultation and is for follow up purposes only. If you are e mailing to provide further information following a telephone conversation the e mail address is pawsinhand@yahoo.co.uk

This address is the postal address for the business. Please note, no training classes are run at this address.
