Dog Training

Ideal for dog owners who are looking for help training their dogs using reward-based methods. We can help with pulling on the lead, recall, jumping up at visitors, good manners, impulse control, trick training, relationship building, and general obedience.

We also love to get the whole family involved as this is best for the dog. 

Dog Behaviour Training

Ideal for owners of dogs with behavioural issues. We understand owning such a dog can be stressful, and we are here to alleviate that worry.  The types of problems we can help with are aggression, reactivity, separation anxiety, fear, inappropriate vocal behaviours, abnormal repetitive behaviours, house soiling, multi-dog households, multi-species households, self-mutilation, coprophagia and pica. 

Puppy Training

Our 1:1 puppy training is an excellent alternative to busy group classes, which doesn’t suit all dogs. You have our undivided attention throughout the course, and therefore you and your puppy get a distinct advantage in how much you progress.

We tailor the puppy course to each client, so tell us what you want to achieve, and we will include it in the course!
