Training

Training programmes

  • One-to-one programmes perfect for dogs over six months old with nonexistent or inconsistent recall, undesired jumping up at people at home or out and about, pulling on the lead, lack of self control, door manners, lack of manners at home, or any combination of the above 
  • If your dog is under six months old, you qualify for our puppy one-to-one programmes which you can find more information on HERE
  • Often undesirable behaviours become habitual for dogs, the longer the problem has gone the harder it is to change these habits. Because of this little can be done to resolve issues in a single session
  • Programmes offer a number of sessions to provide longer term support, allowing you to see long term success. We focus on helping you address the root cause of any undesirable behaviours your dog displays rather than simply stopping them
  • Our coaches have lived with dogs with recall, loose lead walking, jumping up, manners at home, food manners, and door manners so know how frustrating it can be to live with dogs like yours and what it takes to properly train the behaviours you want
  • The goal of our programmes is to give you the skills to work with your dog for life so that you don’t need to rely on our support for extended periods of time

FAQ

Most frequently asked questions and answers

Before we book any sessions you’ll be sent a behaviour history form to fill in which helps us identify how much work you need and how long the undesirable behaviour(s) have been an issue. Once we’ve reviewed your form we’ll be in touch to offer a free no-obligation discovery call to discuss your options or to book you in. It’s at this point that we can discuss how many sessions to expect. 

Full payment of your chosen programme or the first payment in your payment plan 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 programme and upgrading after you feel more comfortable with us then we want you to have that option!

Typically coaches 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. 

Everyone in the family can attend if they wish to. For insurance purposes however we are unable to have minors (<18) attend without an adult. 

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. 

Programmes can go on for no longer than one session per month. The bronze, silver and gold programmes can be used over three, five and eight months respectively. You are of course welcome to complete your programme 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 programmes are nonrefundable, either for the whole programme 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. The price per programme remains the same regardless of how many dogs are involved.
