Puppy Exposure Package- £300

The ideal service for anyone with a new puppy. We are very passionate about helping puppies to prepare for the big wide world, and feel it is so important for the puppies to be exposed to a number of sights, smells, sounds and environments in a positive way. We will come out to you initially to discuss basic puppy training, to include Toilet Training, Crate Training, Puppy Biting, Body Language and lots more. We will then take puppy out with us for 5 1/2 days and introduce them to a number of different dogs of differents breeds, shapes and sizes as well as exposing them to the big wide world. The price also includes a 1-2-1 session at the end whereby we discuss the methods of training we have used, and how to continue with the training going forward.

‘New’ Puppy’ Consultation (£55 for initial visit and information)

The most important time for puppy socialization is from 4 weeks onwards. Once you get your puppy its important to expose them to as many different sites, smells and noises as possible, but its very important it is a positive experience for the pup. Being made to do anything they are unsure about, or to have experiences that are negative can have a massive impact on your puppies behaviour as they grow up and when they are older. We are very passionate about giving puppies the best start, and therefore offer a ‘Puppy Consultation' whereby we come out to you as soon as you have your puppy and run through the basics of toilet training, crate training, sit, stay etc. We also talk in detail about body language, what can effect a puppies behaviour, the importance of the environment and how to play and have fun with your puppy. We can then (if you choose to) design a training plan to include classes (£10 a lesson) and discuss dog walking and day care if this suits you and your puppy. BOOK HERE

Dog Training Consultation £60 for inital then £45 thereafter if purchased in bundles of 3 sessions.

If you would like to teach your dog a new behaviour, or to stop unwanted behaviours such as running off, not coming back when called, jumping up. Training is about changing behaviour rather than changing the emotional state of a dog.

This covers behaviours such as 

  • Coming back to you when called (recall training) 
  • Stopping Jumping up
  • Stop pinching food from the sides
  • General Obedience training 
  • Toilet Training 
Reactive Dog Consultation and Packages.

Having a reactive dog is hard work, and can have a huge impact on yours and your dogs lives. We would initially spend time with you discussing whats going on, talking about reactivity, how making changes in the home will help, then a plan to work with other dogs at a safe distance to help your dog to feel more comfortable around other dogs. We then work out a package to suit you going forward. Packages Available:
