I do however specialize in Rescue dog rehabilitation, training your puppy for success, training blind dogs, working dogs and dog to dog aggression.

Loose lead walking and off lead Recall Training sessions
These sessions are 1-2-1 with owner and dog and can either be to improve your dog’s walking on the lead or improve your dog’s recall off the lead. We all know how great our dogs training can be within their home or quiet outdoor place, but what about once we start adding distractions such as birds, people, dogs, deer etc. Will your dog still have full focus on you? Will your dog still walk with a loose lead or call back?
This is a very common issue, dogs struggle to focus in higher distraction areas. As an owner, dogs have to be taught how to cope with these sitations. These sessions all include training their focus and attention outdoors under distraction.
Dog Lead pulling is one of the main dog training issues and most serious! Your dog pulling isnt just annoying or frustrating its also physically harning for the dog and owner. Most dog injures are from “Slip and Falls” when a dog catches the owner off guard and pulls them over. This can lead to broken bones, shoulder dislocations, whiplash etc. Not only this but even just regular consistent lead pulling can lead to serious injury for you and the dog such as Dislocations, muscle damage, ligament tears, throat damage, exessive joint wear and tear, ripped nails and cut paws. Its so important to get your dog back on track with their lead walking for both of your mental and physical health. At the training session I will Design and Implement a dog training programs, assess individual dogs and provide bespoke training plans.
These Sessions are £70 each and include a follow up consultation after a few weeks to check progress and offer any other advice.
Or you could chose the block of Three 1-2-1 Loose Leads walking course. This is 3 x outdoor tailored sessions focusing on outdoor handler focus, dog interaction skills, how to pass distraction, Loose lead walking skills and more.
