Dog training costs

Obviously one to one training will cost slightly more. However, results are quicker and more pronounced. To give you an idea of timescales lead pulling can be adjusted dramatically within 2 visits, approx 2 hours. We have been known to completely irradicate lead pulling in less than 30 minutes. Our charge is £25 per session ( session time 1 - 1.5 hours ).

Sometimes you need an outside perspective to evaluate your dog's behaviour as to why you pet may be doing certain things or acting in such a way. For instance, lead pulling can be explained in several ways. you dog is scouting the area in front on you, making sure there are no predators. It could also be that you pet pooch is over excited by smells and sounds or maybe your pet is aroused. But the usual reason is he or she just wants to explore and get from "A" to "B" in the quickest time possible and cares little for the person behind.

What you need to know

We will Always meet you at home in the first instance. Its good to know what the dogs environment is like and how it behaves in its territory. this usually takes 30 minutes us to understand the issue's and also for your pet to get to know us. We will then start training and will go to open spaces, roads etc with you, the owner.

Your animal has to be insured, vaccinated and be in a healthy state before commencing training.
