For a variety of reasons, you may be unable to attend a regular course to help you with training your dog and in many cases of Behaviour issues, a course isn't the right place for you to start anyway as you will require more specific assistance to help you move forward with your dog.
Individual Training/Behaviour Programmes are perfect if you require more tailored assistance or if you need your training to fit in with your own routines. In these cases, you will gain confidence and success from my ongoing support and structured training plans.
New Puppy Appointments are ideal for new puppy owners to help get you started within the home, covering any issues you would specifically like help with and providing a wealth of information and support to get you started on the right path!
