THE  DOG  HUB - Promoting responsible dog ownership in the Borough of Camden

TRAINING, CLASSES and FEES

THERE ARE A LIMITED NUMBER OF FREE PLACES
FOR CAMDEN RESIDENTS 
ON ALL OUR COURSES.

1. PRIVATE one-to-one TRAINING - puppies and adult dogs

If you feel that classes are not ideal for you, your family, your puppy or your dog, perhaps a one-to-one private session would be more suitable. One-to-one training can focus on what is important to you, be tailored to your lifestyle and your dog's specific needs, and take place at a time and location convenient for you. This kind of training is also best if your dog is expressing problem behaviours - see "BEHAVIOUR CLINIC" page for examples.

The fee for a PUPPY STARTER ONE-TO-ONE training session at your home is £65.00 per (generous) hour.  If you come to our venue in Euston, the fee is £60 (with me) or £30 with my assistant trainer

The fee for an ADULT DOG ONE-TO-ONE is £75 per (generous) hour at your home, or other suitable location of your choice. There is also an option for additional sessions with my assistant trainer (under my supervision and in Euston) for £30 per hour. 

We carry out behavioural private training in all London Boroughs and can travel further afield by arrangement.

6. OTHER SERVICES

Other services include pre-ownership sessions on how to prepare you and your home for the arrival of your new puppy or dog; how to manage multiple dogs; how get your dog ready for the arrival of a baby; assessments for problem dogs (see also COMMUNITY PROJECT). We also recommend preparing children in the family for the arrival of a dog or puppy into the household - educating them reduces the kinds of risky behaviour that might lead to bites or other accidents.
