Educating a dog is a long term effort so it makes sense that you do it yourself. We are able to teach you everything you need to know to become a competent, force-free dog trainer. You will be able to shape the behaviour or perfect the manners of your dog in no time, because let's face it, it's not rocket science even if it can be very counter-intuitive. Anyone with a bit of common-sense and some patience can become a decent dog-trainer.
Typically, once we have assessed your dog, we will give another dog to you - a dog that you will train under our supervision and guidance for a few hours. This will teach you the basic techniques that you will use over the course of a few days or weeks with your own dog. Once you and your dog have made enough progress, we can teach you more advanced concepts and methods, and so forth.
There are 3 major advantages to considering Dog Training Instruction over Dog Training.
First, let's not beat around the bush, it is much more advantageous for you on the money front. One or two sessions will enable you to propose efficient training to your dog for weeks.
Second, you have your dog 24/7 while we would have him/her only a few hours a week - it does not take a genius to realize that an informed owner can do much more than the best trainer !
Lastly, we will tailor an instruction session that corresponds exactly to your needs and abilities, and we will give you a Training Assistant Dog that corresponds to your specific case. Essentially we can make you a specialist of your problem so that you can work on it straight away.
Sometimes we will do the instruction with your own dog; but more often than not you will leave him at home. The point is not to train him/her! The point is to train YOU so that you can do without our help as soon as possible.
The first session will be charged £125, every session thereafter will be charged £75. Sessions last between 2 and 3 hours.
