Absolutely amazing course for puppies.  A great introduction to training, socialisation and mental stimulation.  Wow, what a difference in my little pup.  Trainers are outstanding with very caring and nurturing ways, encouraging owners as well as the puppies.  Thank you

Worried about Zooming?

If you are worried about virtual sessions, don't be!  All you need is a small, quiet area at home, access to a laptop/tablet/smart phone, an internet connection and some treats...oh and of course your dog!

Done right, virtual classes and support can be just as effective, if not more so in some ways than 'in person' activities for all types of training and support. 

In our experience of running virtual sessions and the feedback from clients has identified the following key benefits for you and your dog:

  1. Your puppy or dog will be more relaxed in an environment in which they feel comfortable
  2. There are fewer distractions at home, and so it is often a more beneficial place for helping your puppy or dog to focus on you and respond to training
  3. Training calm behaviours and chill out activities are so much easier in a familiar environment than in a stimulating and exciting one
  4. We’d always recommend that owners start all of their foundation training at home first of all anyway.  There’s absolutely no disadvantage to training with us at home from the start and then gradually taking it out and about.
  5. Weather is not an issue so your pup and  you won't get too cold, wet or hot.  The other advantage is that classes can always go ahead regardless of the weather, so there’ll be no cancellations as with ‘in person’ sessions held outside.
  6. You can get individual coaching and feedback in real time and ask questions more easily
  7. You don't have to get dressed, pack your bag up and travel to a class -  you can even do it in your pyjamas if you want! 

So...we think virtual sessions are great!  However, we do know that the thought of doing a Zoom or another type of virtual session can be really daunting at first, and we want you to get as much out of it as possible. Check out our beginner's guide to virtual classes.

If you prefer individual support...

As an alternative, you can also book a block of 3 in person or virtual family sessions or mix and match virtual and in person sessions too!

Online training at your convenience 

We also offer a new online training which offers an alternative flexible option for puppy owners!

Our GOOD DOG - LEVEL 1 is a 6 weeks course which will help hoomans teach their dogs 'Good Dog' behaviour.

Special offer! For a limited time only - get a free virtual session with Karen to keep you on track and answer any questions you have when you sign up for the online course.
