Karen is offering a limited number of in person 121 training sessions for puppies and dogs and their hooman family (up to 5 people allowed from the same household).
These sessions are useful for teaching your dog:

- To come back when you call
- To walk nicely on the lead
- To be calm and relaxed
- To make good choices instead of doing things we don't like such as jumping up
- Emergency and safety behaviours - such as staying in one place, stop and leave.
When you book a package of support, you will get some fantastic bonuses too!
- After each session you will get an audio recording where appropriate to remind you of the main points covered in the session.
- Step by step training plans, resources, games and exercise to continue your training at home and track progress.
- Free access to our Keep Calm and Puppy On online course for pups under 6m or free enrolment on our Happy Training The Foundations online course for dogs over 6m.

Misty's 1to1 sessions with Karen have been excellent. She's taylored the sessions to meet Misty's needs, giving us ( naive, new owners) a focus and a variety of ideas to work on with Misty.
The audio following each session has been invaluable. A great recap of the session completed.

Karen has worked wonders with Archie. One of the best pieces of advice she gave us was to put a routine in place for him - it was like magic!! I can’t speak highly enough of what she has achieved - teaching not just Archie, but also us - helping us to understand our dog so much better. Thank you Karen

Karen is a lovely woman and her sensible advice and guidance has been invaluable. She showed me how to make every training issue a game and to be consistent. More importantly Karen explained how to view each experience from the perspective of the puppy. This has enabled me to head off potential problems and allow Rosie to feel safe and secure with me. Many of my friends have commented that she is a lovely, calm and happy dog. It has been worth every penny.

I have just recently finished a block of four 1 to 1 training sessions with my rescue dog Faith. I am so pleased at how far both myself and my dog have come. Karen is an amazing dog trainer. She explains everything in simple terms and encourages both yourself and the dog. I am so glad I chose to do 1 to 1 training. Faith has changed so much, she is so much more confident and happier dog. She has come so far and i think we are cracking recall and she no long jumps for reassurance now we sit and wait.
Our last session of training was amazing. We did some agility and it was fab, Faith picked it up so well and boy was she so confident going through the tunnel. Thanks to Karen my rescue dog now is confident and she is so happy and ready for a good life.. I cannot believe how much my dog has grown with a bit of training.
I would recommend anyone who is thinking of getting a dog or like us help a rescue dog to do some training with Karen. It's amazing watching your dog grow and seeing that they are happy as their tail never stop wagging. I am sure our family rescue dog is going to have an amazing life now. Thank so much Karen you are an amazing and friendly women who loves seeing dogs thrive and grow in confidence.
