As with all of our training, our one-to-one training is force-free and science based and undertaken by one of our highly qualified trainers. Ian Friel-Russell, our head trainer, runs most of our one-to-one training – read more about him and his qualifications here.
We often update our Facebook page with photos from our one-to-on training so see if any of your dog have made it on today!
Why choose one-to-one training?
One-to-one training is great to focus on aspects important to you for example;
- Not pulling on the lead
- Preventing guarding
- Greeting visitors
- Handling issues
- Assistance dog work
We also offer just for fun and high focus work including;
- Trick training (including clicker work)
- Scent detection
- Gun dog work
- Ring Craft
Some people choose one-to-one training to cover the same topics we would cover during classes but at a more flexible time suitable to you. If there are problems specific to the home, such as jumping up at surfaces, or settling at bed time, these are best suited to one-to-one training in the home.
If you have any specific requirements we are always more than happy to discuss these with you and can accommodate any training so please get in touch.
Training can be undertaken at our purpose build Dog Academy in Whiston or in your own home. We also regularly go for walks with clients and their dogs in their usual spots. This allows for real life training in situations you will really be in with your dog!
If we meet you for training away from our Academy travel costs will be applied but are very reasonable. Please get in touch and we will give you a personalised quote.
Training is £40/hr + travel expenses.
The first session at home we often run for two hours which gets us off to a flying start! There is usually a lot of theory required (the science behind training and body language) to discuss in the first visit. For active training, or sessions at the Academy we often only do an hour at a time because that is the most dogs can only cope with. Training is extremely draining as your dog has to work very hard! Don’t expect your dog to work for hours and hours, therefore small breaks are often required!
One-to-one training is available Monday-Friday morning, afternoon and evening appointments. Some weekend appointments are also available working around classes and seminars. Please fill in our contact form let us know when best suits you so that we can send over some possible training times.
