  • To focus on you and listen to you
  • 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.

What people are saying about us...

Together with our young whippet Winnie, we were attending Karen’s Happy Puppy classes until the Covid19 lockdown forced the suspension of those classes. A few weeks later we began on-line sessions. These sessions have worked exceptionally well for us. Karen’s acute observations of Winnie’s behaviour in her home setting have helped us think clearly about how best to encourage desired behaviour, and the training exercises we have learned during Skype sessions have worked well for us. 

These sessions allow Karen to see how we react to Winnie, as well as how Winnie herself acts in a natural setting. Her immediate feedback has made us more thoughtful, systematic, and consistent, in how we treat our dog, and we value her ongoing support. I highly recommend Karen and Blue Dog to anyone who wants to learn more about their dog, and who wants to shape their dogs conduct through positive methods of training.

more...
We had 3 sessions during covid restrictions, so via computer. Our dog is a rescue dog who came to us at 9 months. Training started when she was just a year old. Being a former Romanian street dog our biggest worry was recall. We have been able for the last week to allow her off her leader for a run with other dogs. The training she had means we were comfortable at her coming back, this makes our lives easier but more importantly her life fuller. Could not recommend them enough.
