As with all of our training our Individual Training is completely science based and force-free. Sessions are undertaken by one of our highly qualified trainers and personalised written notes emailed out after each visit.
When purchasing four hours as a block you also gain access to our Online Introduction to Dog Behaviour course (worth £50) and one of our Positive Pet Training Treat Bags (worth £20)
Let us know what your training goals are and we can work with you towards them whilst building on the relationship between you and your dog and helping you to understand each other more.
For more complex behavioural issues we would recommend our Behaviour Consult instead.
“Flynn had three private lessons with Katie from Positive Pets and the changes were amazing, He pulled on the lead constantly and after one lesson he (or should I say we) had learned where we were going wrong. Thoroughly recommend Positive Pets.”

Individual Training is used when Group Training is not suitable or to work on specific training issues.
Group Training might not be suitable if class times, or being free at the same time each week doesn’t work, or if travel to us is difficult. Also for dogs who would find it too difficult being around other people and dogs.
Individual Training is tailored specifically to you and your dog’s needs, so if you have something you really want to work on then this is a great way to focus on it to get the results that you want.
We offer Individual Training to suit you on every day of the week except Saturday when we are fully booked with classes.
Sunday’s and evening appointments (after 6pm) are high in demand and to keep waiting lists shorter there is an additional £10/hr surcharge on these visits.
We also offer Group Training in Good Companion Awards, Agility, Gundog, Hoopers and Scent Work classes.
All classes have progression from bronze through to gold medals! All of these levels can be trained on an individual basis if you wish.
We can do either. We do recommend at least the first session is at home as the initial consult has a lot of theory to get through which can be frustrating for dogs who may struggle doing a two hour session here.
If the problems are at home (e.g. toilet training, mouthing, stealing etc.) then it is more beneficial to have the training at home too.
Individual Training is focusing on training issues – that is new behaviours that you would like your dog to learn.
E.g. walking on the lead, recall, puppy problems, any of our fun training (agility, hoopers, gundog, scent work) etc.
Our Veterinary Behaviour Consults are a much more in-depth approach required for emotionally driven behaviours. These require a referral from your vet but, unlike any of our other training, can be claimed for on pet insurance.
E.g. reactivity to people or dogs, guarding, separation related problems, noise phobia, generalised anxiety etc.
Yes, after every session you will be emailed out notes detailing all the behaviours we taught that session. Notes can take up to a week to be finalised and emailed out.
As long as you give over 48 hours notice we can just rearrange the Consult to another time to suit (as long as this is not a regular occurrence).
If given less than 48 hours notice you may still be charged in full.
