COVID-19. July Update

The Government are currently relaxing some Covid-19 restrictions and I hope to be allowed to restart some training sessions in August.

I know that many people have welcomed new puppies into their homes during the past months and it's important to start training while the dog is young to maximise your enjoyment of your companion and the dog's happiness.

I will be starting some skill workshops, walking on a lead and loose lead for year old dogs,in August but I can arrange 1 to 1 home advice via Zoom or home visits for anyone who cannot attend workshops or needs advice immediately.

I hope to start Puppy Classes, Novice Dog classes and Kennel Club courses in October. All future classes and training sessions will be held under the COVID rules and restrictions as advised by the Government at the time, and are likely to affect numbers, location and social distancing. I will also be following the specific Kennel Club Covid safe guidance for dog training.

I would like to reassure all my clients that I remain available to help with any pet issues.

Things are changing fast so please check my facebook page for the very latest information and if you have any queries or need advice please contact me. My phone, email and facebook information are on my contact page here.

Whether an existing pet or a new puppy, we all want the best relationship with our dog.

Dogs have lived and worked alongside people for thousands of years. Our societies, and our reasons for keeping dogs, have evolved but our dogs remain incredible companions who offer us love, devotion and friendship.

Learning the skills to be a good dog owner and handler is not always intuitive. Why not learn how to enrich the life of your four-legged friend and yourself to make your relationship as rich and rewarding as possible?

Society nowadays requires we must be responsible with our pets, we have to accept that not everyone is a dog lover. Good handler skills and pet training can teach your dog the social rules and expectations, helping avoid problems and embarrassment for you and helping your dog to be happy and less stressed as a valuable member of today's family and society.

In my small group training sessions I use modern positive, reward based methods which are kind and practical. Working together we develop your teamwork with your dog to achieve a polite, well-mannered and sociable pet.
