Our aim is to help you create happy, resilient, well-adjusted family pets but most importantly to build the bond between you so that you can really enjoy life with your dog.
The service we provide intends to set you and your dog for success in the real-world using an evidence-based, holistic, ethical, and positive approach to training and behaviour.
We only use kind, force-free methods, often called reward-based or ‘positive’ dog training. Positive reinforcement dog training is a modern, science-based approach that uses the principles of behavioural science to teach and communicate with dogs, in order to build lasting bonds based on mutual understanding, trust and respect.
We simply teach your dog what you would like them to do in a kind and effective way. There is no need to intimidate or hurt a dog to train them; learning should be fun, not fear-inducing.

With today’s busy life, not everyone has the time to attend scheduled puppy classes. I offer private, one-on-one basic training sessions for you and your dog in your own time, wherever is convenient to you.
In the 45-minute session, I will teach you to train your dog to sit, drop, stay, wait and be calm on your request. This individualised approach will save you time as we can cover more than is possible in a group environment. You will also receive helpful tips on troubleshooting common challenges people face with a new puppy
