Puppy Zoomies! a six-week online puppy class
Start off on the right paw with a six-week course where you and your puppy can begin to learn the skills you will need to enjoy a harmonious life together. Along with the usual church hall puppy class basics we will look at how to develop polite and clear communication, enjoy appropriate play with your puppy, introduce new experiences positively, and prepare for low-stress visits to the groomer and vet – all from the comfort of your own home.
Bring your sense of humour and be ready to laugh and learn as you begin to see the world through your puppy’s eyes!
This class will take place ONLINE in our virtual classroom via Zoom. You will receive a link and instructions on how to join the class from home by email.
Dates: Mondays 18.30 – 19.30, 22 June – 27 July
Full course: £100
Coffee Break Training
When you first started to work from home you probably intended to make the most of the time to do more training with your dog – among other things – only to find that the pressures of work carried on much as before and that spare hours for sitting down with a trainer (or clearing out the loft, or re-grouting the bathroom tiles) were still impossible to come by. I’ve found much the same!
While I can’t help with the loft or the bathroom, I can help with the dog. These sessions last twenty minutes, fit nicely into your coffee break, and are the perfect length for pups of all ages.
Drop by for a virtual coffee and a bite-sized training session as often as you like – it’s just £7.50.
Individual Training (full-length sessions)
Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, all lessons will be delivered online.
Whether you have just welcomed a new puppy into your family, adopted an adult dog from a rescue, or simply want to boost your connection with your resident canine with a well-thought-out programme of regular training, we’re here for you.
Email us to discuss your needs and goals; we will make a plan together and help you to follow it through with weekly hour-long sessions.
Hour-long session: £20
Block of six sessions: £100 (email or call us for details)
Walking Together - online coaching for relaxing walks
A walk with your dog should be an enjoyable experience for both of you, especially when it’s the only time you spend outside your home, but for many of us the pressures of the outside world – other dogs (and their humans!), squirrels, noisy traffic – can get in the way and make this precious time together feel like an unpleasant chore or even a battle of wills.
During a Walking Together coaching session I will introduce you to stress-busting, relationship-boosting techniques that will help you and pup to work and walk as a team and put the joy back into your outdoor adventures. Feel the worries melt away!
Email or call us to discuss your needs and goals.
Hour-long session: £40
Block of three sessions: £100
Special Snowflakes (online)
Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, all consultations will be delivered online.
Just like humans, some dogs have particular needs. They may have social problems, anxieties around everyday objects or a fear of being left alone. Some may need training support, alongside veterinary treatment, in living with diagnosed neurological conditions such as epilepsy or Canine Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. In our consultation I will take a full history, observe your dog’s behaviour and put together a plan to address the problems so your relationship can get back on track. I am also happy to refer you on to a specialist if necessary.
2-3 hour consultation with phone and email support: £50
Subsequent hour-long sessions: £20
