In addition to classes for young dogs, I offer
training sessions for dogs of all ages, on a one-to-one basis. These individual
sessions can be absolutely tailored to cover the training that you want to
complete with your dog, and have the additional advantage of avoiding the
distraction that other dogs may cause. If you have concerns about taking your
dog to training classes with other dogs, individual sessions will be more
appropriate for you.
Sessions take place in my secure field near
Stowmarket (or I can travel to you - additional costs will apply). Training can
include the following:
basic training exercises as required ("sit",
"down", introduction to the lead and "heel", and a recall)
During these sessions I work with you and provide
assistance and demonstrations, but you actually do the training. Working
together during training improves the dog-owner relationship and helps you to
understand your dog's behaviour.
Before we begin we'll discuss what you hope to achieve, and decide
how many sessions are likely to be needed; the number can be
adjusted according to the progress you and your dog make!
Individual training sessions at my premises last
an hour and cost £30.
contact me if you would like to discuss your requirements before
booking, or if you require a training session at your home.
In some cases, unwanted behaviour can be resolved
through training, without the need for a full behavioural consultation.
However, short training sessions or group classes
are not suitable for dogs who display fearful, aggressive or vocal behaviour
towards dogs or people - for these issues a behaviour consultation is the
most appropriate and effective approach.
If you are unsure whether your dog's
behaviour is a training or a more complex behavioural issue, please
contact me to discuss this.
