Private training sessions are focused on teaching your dog a specific behaviour and conducted by a qualified Obedience Dog Trainer. It does not include a detailed assessment. Therefore if your dog is experiencing any issues that are more of a behavioural concern (e.g. barking, aggression, reactivity, anxiety or fear based behaviours) you need to book a behavioural concern package. This is to ensure you get the right amount of assessment and support for change and success. We can not effectively train a dog that has any nervousness, fear or stress without a thorough assessment.
This does not apply to puppies under 20 weeks of age experiencing behavioural issues. If your puppy is under 20 weeks of age you can book a private session, regardless of what the concern is.
Our preferred method is to work with you online. The benefits of this are:
- We see your dog in its most natural state e.g., they are not excited or nervous by our presence.
- In home/in person sessions are recommended if a follow up session is needed.
- It is also the most cost-effective way of working together, the session is cheaper and no travel fee applicable.
The first session is a lot of getting to know you and your dog and any training we can demonstrate what this looks like with our own dog online too. Don’t worry there may be some dog’s we want or need to meet or work with in person and we will recommend this after the first online session. But we won’t make you spend that extra money unless its necessary.
