Owning a puppy can be really overwhelming, especially in a busy household. There’s a lot to do in order to cement in the behaviour you want your puppy to display as an adult in a very short amount of time. Our one-to-one packages are ideal for setting a puppy up for success in their life with you. We are able to address any combination of the following, please note that this is not an exhaustive list and if there’s anything else you would like to address then we are more than likely able to do so: 

  • Leaving your puppy home alone 
  • Toilet training
  • Sleeping through the night 
  • Teething & biting 
  • Socialisation 
  • Puppy & human relationship 
  • Introducing your puppy to children 
  • Introducing your puppy to existing pets

FAQ

Most frequently asked questions and answers

Once you get in touch I’ll ask for a prioritised list of what you’ve like to achieve. From there I will either book you in for a free no-obligation discovery call to discuss your options or simply suggest a number of session that I think are a reasonable number to achieve your goals. As packages are upgradeable this will likely be a small underestimation to ensure that I’m not taking more money than you need to be spending!

Full payment of your chosen package is due as soon as your first session is confirmed as in the diary. 

Absolutely! We understand that we’re asking you to pay a lot of money to people you likely won’t have met in person at the time of payment. If you feel more comfortable booking a smaller package and upgrading after you feel more comfortable with us then we want you to have that option!

Typically trainers try to keep between three to five exercises per session. However this does depend on the content covered and the issues being addressed, sometimes we deal with one or two small things in addition to the typical three to five exercises.

Sessions can take place at your home, on a walk local to you (booked as a home visit), you can come to the Great Field in Poundbury or sessions can be done online via technology if you prefer. Dependent on the restrictions in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus, home visits and in-person sessions may not be an option at the time of booking. Behaviours that need to be addressed in the home will be addressed via technology in the event that a home visit is not possible. 

Packages can go on for no longer than one session per month. The bronze, silver and gold packages can be used over three, five and eight months respectively. You are of course welcome to complete your package sooner than this. We recommend a minimum of one week in between sessions, with most clients choosing to book in roughly every one to two weeks.

Except in the case of extenuating circumstances these packages are nonrefundable, either for the whole package or as single sessions. The money is however transferrable to one of our other services.

Not a problem! Multi-dog households can come with a whole host of undesirable behaviours stemming from how your dogs interact with one another. If an existing dog is displaying concerning behaviour such as aggression towards the puppy this will have to be upgraded to a behaviour package to address the existing dog’s aggression. Any money paid towards a puppy package can be transferred to a behaviour package.
