One-to-one dog training

Individual dog training is suitable if you have a persistent training problem that you feel would benefit from particular attention or if you just have one or two things that you’d like to work on.  This can be things like:
 

• loose lead walking

• recall

• playing games

• impulse (self) control

• focus / keeping your dog’s attention on you.

• clicker training 

 
Dog training can be vital to behaviour work

Individual training is also suitable if you simply can’t make it to classes, you are worried that your dog may become frightened or overwhelmed in a class situation or you are concerned that your dog isn’t sufficiently socialised to mix with other dogs.  Training can take place at your home, at AbbeyPet’s secure premises or in a suitable outside area.
 
Training is an ongoing committment throughout our dogs’ lives.  As a member of the Pet Professional Guild I am committed to humane force-free training (reward-based) that is built upon a foundation of scientifically proven learning theory and knowledge of behavioural training techniques.  Positive training does not mean letting your dog do what it wants;  it is simply training without using force, pain or fear and is an incredible aid toward building a strong and enduring relationship between you and your dog.
 

Methods

I am a keen advocate of force-free training methods and believe strongly that flexibility and adaptability are key to helping people achieve a happy and positive relationship with their pets.  I firmly believe that all training should be built upon a foundation of scientifically proven learning theory and knowledge of behavioural training, and am committed to helping pet owners achieve this.
