TRAINING, CLASSES and FEES
1. 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 is £65.00 per (generous) hour. There is also an option for additional sessions with an assistant trainer (under my supervision) for £35 per hour.
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 an assistant trainer (under my supervision) for £35 per hour.
Email if you'd like to know more about having a one-to-one.

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.
