All classes currently suspended due to coronavirus restrictions. If you are booked onto a current course I have already contacted you individually (check spam if not seen yet).
If your course is due to start in April or later, we will be contacting you nearer the time as more will be known about the virus at that time. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you are worried about your booking for any reason.
Welcome to Paws in Hand Dog Training and Behaviour. We have a super range of different puppy and dog training classes to suit all needs.
We are the puppy tamers! From 8 weeks until adulthood we help your puppy to grow up into fabulous companions. We focus on problem prevention so that you can avoid many of the pitfalls that can develop. Our methods are simple to use but highly effective.
We recommend attending at least one puppy party session for pups 8-12 weeks old before attending a puppy training course. These puppy parties start to teach puppy life skills and can really help to prepare them for "school." These are vitally important, early socialisation sessions with enhanced hygiene for the safety of unvaccinated puppies run by me (Denise Nuttall), registered dog behaviourist, now specialising in training for the prevention of dog aggression.
We run six weeks indoor classes; useful if you would expect your dog to go to pubs and restaurants with you. We also run three-week outdoor puppy classes (in a secure space with access to good parking and a loo facility) to help educate them how to behave in the exciting outdoors. We provide expert supervised socialisation with other puppies and livestock awareness training.
We participate in the Kennel Club Good Citizen's Scheme awards. This is not compulsory and we offer test sessions every three months outside of classes. The next test date is 7/3/20 in the afternoon at Stapehill Village Hall. Please make sure you let us know if you wish to participate.
Don't forget to check out our other outdoor classes at Brambles where we can develop puppy confidence with supervised play, help resolve recall problems, work with anxious dogs, reactive dogs and much much more.
We also offer dog behaviourist services to our past and present clients. Denise Nuttall B.Sc (Hons), M. Res is a full member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors, The Canine Training and Behaviour Society and the Association of pet Dog Trainers. Denise is registered with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (the DEFRA recognised voluntary industry regulator) as a clinical animal behaviourist and animal training instructor. If you have pet insurance that covers behaviour therapy, Denise's behaviour services should be covered as most insurance companies recognise full members of the APBC for insurance work.
