Individual Training

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 sessions are tailored specifically for you and your dog.

When purchasing four hours as a block you also gain access to our online learning courses (worth £60) 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.”

Our Individual Training is £65/hr or four hours for £200. Four hours also gives you access to our online learning worth £60 and our Positive Pet Training Treat Bag worth £20.

To access the reduced rate of four hours you must pay for all four sessions at once. Payment is required to give access to the online training prior to your first session.

We can offer consult times prior to payment but your booking is only confirmed once payment is received.

You have access to the online course ahead of your first session. This includes videos and handouts explaining dog behaviour, dog body language and how dog’s learn. You should aim to complete the Understanding Your Dog course prior to your first session.

You can make an account on our online Portal and use the code emailed out after you purchase the training to access the courses for free.

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. Also for dogs who would find it too difficult being around other people and dogs in a class setting.

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.

Many of our clients have both group and individual training sessions in order to make the progress they would like.

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 (starting from 5pm) 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.

Unfortunately at the moment we cannot offer training in your own home but have secure indoor and outdoor training areas to use at our purpose built facilities in Whiston, Staffordshire.

Individual Training is focusing on training issues – that is new behaviours that you would like your dog to learn. And run by one of our qualified trainers.

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. Our behaviour consults are run by our veterinary behaviourist Dr Katie Friel-Russell.

E.g. reactivity to people or dogs, guarding, separation related problems, noise phobia, generalised anxiety etc.

Yes, all of the exercises we teach will be detailed on the online learning portal for you to reference back to!

Yes, the training session is for us to teach you how to teach your dog. You need to practice at home to proof the behaviours and give you and your dog the practice that you both need!
Frequent, short sessions are best and are easy to fit in around every day life!

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.

Please fill in our contact form.

Give details of the behaviours you would like to work through as well as availability for Individual Training. We will then be in touch with some potential dates.

You also need to purchase the training here, make an account on our Portal, and send over a copy of your dog’s proof of vaccination.
