Sessions to address issues like these can take place on walks or at your home, whichever is most appropriate.  They are held on a 1 to 1 basis and last up to 2 hours.  You will be asked to fill in a questionnaire and I will talk through the issue with you before we meet.  At our meeting, I will take down any further details and discuss a suitable plan of action for you and your dog.  Payment for the consultation also covers training given on the day of our meeting, a follow up report and subsequent support given via email or phone for three months. 

Follow up visits may be arranged as needed - £40 for 1 hour.

TRAINING WALKS   -   £10.00 per hour

Imagine taking a lovely walk where you have a qualified instructor at hand to help you teach your dog those things needed to make your walks fun and safe.   This is an on-lead group walk, dealing with issues owners face every day.   You will meet others facing similar challenges and have a lot of fun overcoming them together.    During these walks we will cover...

- How to stop your dog pulling on the lead (aka 'Loose Lead Walking')

- How to deal with the kind of distractions you meet daily on your walks.

- How to meet and greet other people and other dogs

- Teach your dog positions that improve control & safety: Sit, Stay, Middle.

- Teach your dog to walk either side of you so you can position yourself between your dog and nearby hazards wherever you walk.

DOG WALKS   -   £10.00 per hour

These walks are for the average dog who is a fairly well-rounded character and without serious behaviour issues.

Dogs on this walk may find themselves accompanying my own dog 'Sooty' who has passed his Silver Good Citizen's Test (well done Sooty!).  We will explore the Beeding Levels, the Lower Horseshoe and sports field at Steyning or the beach near Widewater Lagoon.  If you have any special places you'd love your dog to enjoy, just let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate you.
