I have also been involved in creating, organising and carrying out bespoke Dog wedding packages and offer freelance training work through other companies such as daycare centers.
Every session I offer is tailored to your specific dogs own strengths, weakness, personality, genetic traits, breed traits and the exact issues you would like to address. I cover the Lanarkshire area (depending of your area and training issue), I can travel to your location or provide outdoor sessions within the Wishaw/Motherwell/North Lanarkshire area.
Many clients and dogs travel fruther further afield to have sessions with me, so if you are unsure if we can provide a service to your area, feel free to message or call me.
General 1-2-1 Dog Training sessions
I offer this service for all different kinds of dog training issues you may be experiencing. From Puppy training all the way to senior dog. I specialize in Rescue dog rehabilitation, training your puppy for success, training blind dogs, working dogs and dog to dog aggression.
I offer training for various different training and behaviour issues such as lead pulling, recall, anxiety, fearfulness, low confidence, hyperactivity, dog aggression, jumping up issues, attention/focus issues and much more.
Sessions are available for any age, breed, or training problem.
These sessions are usually carried out within the dog’s own home or an arranged outdoor area (Depending on the areas you wish to cover on the session), I also have use of an indoor premises (if required).
Video Sessions and Consultations can be offered for clients, who live outside the coverage area.
Prices start from just £70 per session (depending on the issues you are expericing and the severity of the un-wanted behaviours.)
These sessions last around an hour to hour and a half, they include a follow up telephone consultation and check up a few weeks after the session. I also provide added support, if required, via call or messages.
Puppy Life Skills Course (Block of three) – Includes Certificate on Completion for you and your dog
This Course covers everything you will need to know from toilet training to recall and socialisation. This course is designed to give your dogs a good start in life, avoid as many issues as possible later in life and support your dog into adolescence. Each block is tailored to your puppies own needs, wants, strengths and weaknesses. Every animal has their own personalities and this course (and all my sessions) take this into consideration to offer a fully tailored service for your dog.
The Puppy Life Skills Course Includes 3 sessions around and hour to hour and a half each, support via Call or message through the progression of the sessions and a follow up call a few weeks proceeding the last session.
Sessions are usually arranged a week or two apart which allows you and your dog to work on their training plan from each the session, build your bond together and to allow the course to support your dog through their early life stages.
Through the sessions we cover a range of training topics focussed on the needs of a puppy, and giving them the best start in life. We begin with indoor training and progress to outdoor training with an option for the final session to work on situational training such as attending a dog friendly cafe to teach your dog how to settle in busier indoor enviroments. This is ideal for people who would like their dog to come with them on holidays and other dog friendly venues or just in busier places. The session rounds up the course with again, more theory and practical work. Recall and loose lead walking are included in this session as well as how to appropriately "behave" around people/dogs/bikes/cars etc.
The block is currently discounted to £60 per session which is £180 for the full course depending on your location. Payment must be made in full for the whole course at time of booking.
1-2-1 Puppy Training Session’s
1 to 1 Puppy Training Sessions to give your puppy the best start in life, learn new skills and how to understand and train your puppy. These sessions are tailored to your own dog and what you would like to cover within the session time.
These sessions can be done in person or via Video consultation are £70 per session, pay as you go.
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. Does your dog pull on the lead? Does your dog only come back to you off the lead unless......? Then these sessions can help put your training back on track, improve your walk quality and bond with your dog. These sessions take place at a local walk/Park within the Motherwell or Wishaw area.
These Sessions are £60 each and include a follow up consultation after a few weeks to check progress and offer any other advice.
“Over excited Greeters” and Lead frustration Sessions
If you struggle with your dog being over excited in the house or out on walks (especially when meeting other people/dogs) then we offer 1-2-1 training sessions or video calls to work on this. These sessions can include dog lead aggression and frustration.
These sessions are from £80, the session is an hour to hour and a half. Also includes a follow up consultation after a few weeks.
Canine Enrichment sessions
Dogs need mental stimulation too. Their mental health is just as important as their physical health. These sessions can be done in person or via Video consultation.
I am an advocate for our dogs who dont have voices. Its important to consider their mental health and general wellbeing. Enrichment can have many different positive effects on their general training and behaviour as well.
Its amazing how much more focus and enjoymnt you can get from your dog by reaching into their natural instincts!
These sessions are from £60 each and carried out within the dogs home or at a local park. (Average session time 1 hour)
Confidence Building Sessions
Ideal for Low confidence, anxious Dog’s, or Rescue dog’s. Help your dog feel on top of the world again and regain their confidence. Low confidence can dramatically effect your dog.
I specialise in builidng confidence and good life experience in dogs who have been rescued, from abroad, puppy farms and dogs who have had bad or tramatic experiences.
But just because you have had your dog from a young dog & has never had any bad experienced, that doesnt mean your dog wouldnt have confidence issues. All dogs are individuals and some are more confident than others.
This session will build your dogs confidence and trust in themselves and owners!
Confidence Sessions From £60 (1 to 1 and a half hour's) and include a follow up call after a few weeks and support via call or message.
