How It Works
After deciding to undertake training you can make a booking for an initial consultation. Following the initial consultation, you will be provided with…
Let’s talk! Send me a brief message about you and your dog and we can work out the best options to suit your needs.
We’ll arrange a date and time for me to come to your home and we get started on your training. Depending on the service you require, you may be asked to complete a training questionnaire to ensure we make the most out of our training sessions.
During your training sessions you’ll be provided with practical strategies and shown training techniques to teach your dog the new skills that are required to help address your training goals. Information handouts to support your learning are provided so that you can refer to them in your own time. Ongoing phone and email support is also provided.
