1-2-1 Dog Training
My 1-2-1 dog training instruction provides support for owners who would like to teach their dogs specific behaviours, and for those who are experiencing difficulties with their dog's training.
Teaching your dog recall
Teaching your dog to walk on a loose lead
Teaching your dog to stop jumping up
Puppy training and socialisation
Teaching "sit", "down", "leave it", "stay" etc.
Teaching general manners and calm behaviour
1-2-1 training sessions last 1-hour, and are held at your home, on a walk, in a park or secure dog field. During the session, we will discuss your aims, how to manage your dog's training issues, and we will practise doing some training with your dog. You may be provided with handouts with training protocols to follow in your own time. These sessions involve me demonstrating and / or instructing you how to train your dog. It's unlikely that we will be able to train your dog to perform specific behaviours, or overcome training issues in one session, as training often requires lots of time, patience and repetition. Therefore, we may need several sessions together to make progress with your dog, and it will be down to you to continue the training in your own time.
Each 1-hour session costs £40. The full payment is required in order to secure your booking. If you book 3 or more sessions at once, then a 10% discount will be applied. My in-person services cover a distance of 40 miles from Cresswell, Stoke-on-Trent (ST11 9RA). If you live further than 40 miles, there will be an additional charge of £1 per mile. Please note that I am currently only available to provide any of my services at weekends or weekday evenings.
Please ensure you have read and understand my terms and conditions before booking, paying particular attention to my cancellation and re-arrangement policy.
