TRAINING, CLASSES and FEES
1. PRIVATE one-to-one TRAINING - puppies and adult dogs
If you feel that classes are not ideal for you, 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 you 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 £60.00 per (generous) hour.
The fee for an adult dog ONE-TO-ONE is £75 per (generous) hour - this can be at your home, at our training space in Euston or other suitable location of your choice.
We carry out behavioural private training in all London Boroughs and can travel further afield by arrangement.

2. URBAN WALKABOUTS DROP-IN CLASSES
This course is for anyone wanting to polish current skills and perhaps even prepare for the Kennel Club Good Citizen Bronze Award. The classes will be held outdoors in and around Camden. The fee is £15 per session. Spaces are limited.

3. KENNEL CLUB "PUPPY" Foundation (4 week course)
These are unique beginner level classes and they cater for just four puppies per class.

The class is held in Euston, NW1 and the fee for PUPPY FOUNDATION is £100.00 for four classes. The November 2017 class is now full.

4. ULTIMATE URBAN PUPPY (6 week course)
This is based on the Kennel Club Good Citizen Puppy Foundation Course, but is more comprehensive and covers many additional behaviours / issues. The class will be limited to six puppies. This very small class size will ensure that you plenty of support and attention. Time is set aside for a question and answer session, and the atmosphere aims to be informal and friendly. It is designed to offer a truly unique and superior class. Both the Kennel Club Puppy Foundation Certificates and Rosettes and our own Urban Puppy Certificates and Rosettes are awarded on successful completion.
The class is held in Euston, NW1 and the fee for ULTIMATE URBAN PUPPY is £150 for six classes.

5. BEHAVIOURAL CONSULTATIONS: troubleshooting
The fee for a BEHAVIOURAL CONSULTATION (1.5 hours +) is £120 with feedback and behaviour modification forward planning. These consultations are for the more complex behavioural problems (eg separation distress/anxiety, aggression) that cannot be addressed in basic one-to-one training.
We carry out behavioural consultations in all London Boroughs and can travel further afield by arrangement.

6. FREE TRAINING and ADVICE
Some people living in The London Borough of Camden may qualify for free or subsidised behavioural advice, one-to-one sessions or classes. Go to our COMMUNITY PROJECT page for more information.
7. 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.
