General Training / Activity 121
£30 per hour
If your dog is not suited to group classes or the times just don’t fit into your life, you can still join the fun and book a private session. This option can be used for Agility, Scentwork, Hoopers, Brain Training, Treiball or any general life skills such as lead walking or recall.
These sessions are held at our secure paddock in Llanellen and last for 40 minutes.
£135 (plus travel if sessions are held at your home).
3 x one to one in person sessions at your home or at our secure paddock in Llanellen.
Each session will be split between practical training and the theory behind training your puppy to equip you with the skills to carry the methods forward after our sessions end. Each session will last approximately one and half hours and will include:
strategies for the prevention of unwanted behaviours developing,
Unlimited phone/email support for up to 2 months after your initial training session,
Puppy One to One

Focussing on your and your dog’s individual requirements we will draw up a plan for your training journey together. We will work through any specific problems or worries you have as well as covering the important basics for both puppies and new rescues.
The session will cover the same topics as the puppy package and will be held either at your home or at our secure training paddock. The cost includes a 2 hour one to one session for practical training and general advice and guidance and a written training plan.

For more challenging problem behaviours, it is usually important to visit your home to assess the situation, however during the current times pandemic this is not possible. We can however use technology to connect via online conferencing and use video replays to help us unpick what is going on for your dog. We can also hold a face to face one to one at our paddock or in your garden at home if that is appropriate to the problems you need help with.
Often by the time owners seek help, the problems have become overwhelming and behaviours well practiced and engrained. If you have any concerns over your dog’s behaviour, whether it’s a sudden change, the result of a specific incident or something that has crept up over time – please don’t delay and get in touch as soon as you can. It will pay dividends in the long run as the more your dog repeats these behaviours the more time it will be to effect change. I can help you to understand your dog, their needs, the reasons the behaviour developed and help you and your dog can re-open the channels of communication to get you both to where you want to be. This is rarely a straightforward or easy path; a details history will be needed before we can begin. We take a holistic approach to any behaviour modification to ensure any factors feeding into the problem behaviour can be addressed. If between us we decide further referrals to vets, dietitians, or other professionals are needed I can recommend qualified and experienced local colleagues.
Behaviour one to ones are usually for a minimum of two hours. They include a full written report with additional relevant information from trusted sources. You will have a training plan to use going forward and any recommendations for ongoing referrals. Ongoing support via email will be available for 3 months following your consultation and follow on sessions for further training will charged at a discounted rate.
