Private Lessons – one to one private lessons let you and your dog get the most out of your time
Private lessons in your home or local area at a time and day to suit you. Best value for multi-dog households, fear/aggression issues or other problem behaviors. Basic rate €50 per hour long session. Ask about package deals. Travel costs may apply if outside local service area.
Training a dog in its own environment where it will be expected to perform the things you teach it is a good idea. Starting the learning process away from distractions (like other dogs, smells, birds, squirrels) helps the dog ‘get’ what you are trying to teach it. The ABCs if you will, before trying it out in the world.
I will start you off each lesson, showing you how to teach the dog what you want from it, then leave you with written instructions (and video links if that helps you) and a schedule to practice on your own. I’ll instruct you until you are doing it properly and then review with you at the start of the next session. Telephone and email support between sessions is included in the basic price.

WALK AND TRAIN
In this package, you will receive two private lessons (one week apart) so that you can work at home on the underlying behaviours needed to teach your dog to walk at your side without pulling. I will collect and walk your dog for two weeks, using my expertise and timing to teach the dog how and where to walk. You do not need to walk your dog during these two weeks (in fact, I would strongly advise against it). At the end of the two weeks, we will all walk together, transferring the behaviour to your walks.
This is a time-consuming package where you will receive 3 hours of private tuition and over 9 hours of one-on-one dog walking with a professional trainer. Although you will need to continue reinforcing the behaviour and practicing the methods taught, both you and the dog will have a strong foundation to remove pulling behaviours and be able to walk happily together.
Price: €250 (Please note that this package may not be suitable for some dogs with behavioural problems).
RECALL / EMERGENCY RECALL – (Come back)
Currently taking names for an outdoor only group class 1-1/2 hours to teach your dog to come back to you, and a separate cue (“command”) to use in emergency situations to get your dog speeding back to your side! €30
LOOSE LEASH WALKING
Teaching your dog the correct place to walk and not to pull on the leash makes the walk much more enjoyable for you and your dog. This is not a formal heelwork class as dogs who are not allowed to explore the environment on their walks soon become bored and may express this in the home in ways humans find unacceptable. Instead, you dog will learn that if the leash is tight, the walk stops, and its much more fun to keep going!
Loose Leash walking is taught in 2 x 45 minute sessions a week apart. €30
Session One: Eye Contact and Correct Walking Position
Session Two: Help! My dog pulls!
