  • Puppy support
  • New rescue dog support
  • Owner mentoring
  • Shy/timid dogs
  • Adolescent/high energy dogs


The Foundation Programme – 2 months of unrivalled support

The Foundation Programme ensures you get the maximum baseline support, so you are equipped with the skills and knowledge to give you the best start!

  • Your free discovery call

We start with a free 20 minute no-obligation discovery call, to assess your individual needs and to reassure you that you are in the best hands.

  • Initial fact finding session

Our first session is a fact finding consultation to give you the best start. Every dog is unique and every situation equally so. The dynamic of having a trainer in the home can really ‘throw off’ even a serious ‘problem behaviour’. I can’t count how many times I’ve turned up and doggo has been on ‘best behaviour for teacher’.

As a result, our first session is a consultation, where a behaviour may not be as obvious with a stranger in the home, or for those times where there’s simply too much ground to cover in one sitting, so we go through the baseline to set you up for success during your follow ups.

The initial consultation does not replace the need for your dog to have ongoing training, rather it acts as a foundation or baseline, offering some initial guidance. It is from this that we build your bespoke training plan; after all, nobody else can tell you what your ideal dog should be like.

  • 3 additional follow up sessions to help you get

Now that we’ve built the plan, it’s time to put it into action! We start out with 3 sessions, but we can always add more as necessary. You have our full support throughout – if you need to bend an ear twice a day, every day, we’re only a call or an email away. Don’t feel embarassed to ask, it’s what we’re here for.

The Breakdown:

  • 1 to 1 coaching
  • Training plans (after your initial consultation)
  • Stooge/calm dogs to practice around
  • First session is a consultation, so we cover every base
  • 3 additional 45 minute training sessions (can be extended, pro-rata, with no obligation to book in blocks)
  • Ongoing support via email/text/phone
