Puppy training services and packages:

We are currently within a Puppy Boom! Since the first lockdown many people have decided to buy puppies and the world has gone puppy mad!  This is why, right now it is so important that you build a good relationship with established breeders before you purchase your puppy, avoiding those who are just in it for the money. Thus the puppy is bought into the world with the best possible chance of a happy life around his/her new family. Prevention is better than cure and my aim is to help new puppy owners understand how dogs learn, why it is so important to teach them at such a young age and how this can be done in a simple and fun way, guiding your puppy into the behaviours you want for life.  Our “Puppy Partnership” service is a great way to gain invaluable advice for your important decision making.

I offer this extra service very early on within your search for a puppy. What breed of dog would suit your lifestyle? What to look out for when selecting your puppy? What questions to ask the breeder and more.
