Couldn’t recommend Janet highly enough.
She has an incredible nature with dogs. She has taught us and our Murph core training skills which we are now developing and achieving and we couldn’t be happier with his progress.
A wonderful, kind and friendly person and as per previous such a lovely nature with your dog !
Thanks once more

Training Your Dog ~ Together

Training your dog should be fun !
A calm, simple and fun approach brings out the very best in a dog. It gives him the confidence to carry out your commands and the praise he receives for doing so cements the type of bond we all want with our best friend.

Training is always "one to one", with lessons tailored to suit the individual needs of the dog and the owner. But please don't panic when I say that I'll also be training you!

With your new found knowledge and skills, you'll have the confidence to step in and correct any mistakes made by your dog.

Training takes place outside whatever the weather, so be prepared !!
Having been fully trained by me, your dog will walk to heel - on or off the lead - come to your call, will sit and stay and of equal importance, not chase sheep. When your dog is off the lead, he will enjoy freedom but under your control, know where the boundaries are and respect you as his leader.

If your time is limited there is always the option of residential dog training. Your dog boards with me and receives comprehensive training and upon collection, you will be shown how to make him behave as has been taught.
When you deliver your dog for residential training, I request that a 50% (non-refundable) payment be paid, with the remaining 50% being paid on collection.

What type of training would best suit your dog?

Recognising that all dogs are different, I have devised different formats of training. Because no two dogs are exactly the same, the training I offer isn't a "one size fits all" approach. Instead, I offer lessons in various formats to suit both your dog and you.

Pre Puppy

I'm available to give advice before you choose your pup. Then, once you you've got him/her, slowly progress onto teaching your dog some good manners.

1 or 2 day Courses

These very popular "one to one" courses attract people and their dogs from all over the country. Each one is tailored to suit the individual dog and includes teaching your dog not to chase sheep. A 50% (non-refundable) deposit is required on confirmation.

Obedience Training

This 5 lesson course, spread over 10 weeks, takes place at my home on a one to one basis. If you have a young pup I strongly advise starting straight away with my young puppy “training” before progressing onto this course.

Residential Dog Training

Training a dog takes both time and commitment - something not everyone has.
With my residential training course, your dog lives with me eight weeks. Training is constant and it's not just about "sit and stay"! It covers everyday situations, from who goes out the door first right through to not chasing sheep and livestock. Your dog will socialise with other dogs, allowing him to become confident, tolerant and accepting of other animals.
When you come to collect your dog, you'll be met by a fully trained, happy and relaxed friend.

When your dog is fully trained, he will:-

  • Sit to command and whistle.
  • Sit at a distance to the whistle.
  • Stay.
  • Walk to heel on / off the lead.
  • Not chase sheep.
  • YOU will have gained in confidence.
  • Will know its boundaries.
  • Want to please you.
  • Not pull towards distractions.
  • Respect You !

Forget the size - any dog can be trained !

Molly the Black Cocker Spaniel and 5 month old Chihuahua Honey, demonstrate the results that can be achieved quite easily through a mixture of firm but fair training, with a healthy splash of fun thrown in.
No need for any cross words !
