What if small group training is not for me?

We do not have a “one size fits all approach”.  We value the individual characteristics and needs of each dog and owner and will work with you to achieve your goals. If, after assessing your dog and considering the behavioural goals you wish to achieve with him, we feel that small group training is not the service your require, we will recommend a training solution that , in our professional experience, will best suit your and your dog.

These may include :

  • one-on-on training – this is perfect for dogs that are not well socialised with other dogs, are timid or who have “novice” owners who want to learn the ropes together with their dog
  • in home training – If difficult to attend regular classes or your dog needs some basic skills before joining a group class, a private session is recommended
  • private behavioural issue sessions – where we work with you to get to the core of the behavioural issues that are causing problems in you life with your dog
