Private Dog Training

Do you want to know how to train a dog or even how to train a puppy. Starting early with puppy training makes later dog training a lot easier. Training a puppy or a dog is so much more effective and speedier with the appropriate dog behavior knowledge and instruction from a professional dog trainer.

Not everyone has the time nor inclination to attend dog training classes and that not every dog is suitable to be taken to classes therefore we can provide private one to one dog training sessions for our clients usually during the daytime at a time to suit you. These sessions can be tailored to your requirements and the personality of your dog but will usually concentrate on bond building and dog obedience training consisting of:

• Sit
• Down
• Stay
• Dog recall training
• Walk on the lead nicely

It may be that you have attended structured dog obedience classes and want to continue a more personalised relationship building course with your dog, or now want to start to expand your dog training with further real world distractions outside the controlled environment of a dog training hall.

Dogs need to use their brain.  If you don't give them tasks to use their brain, they will find tasks of their own to use it.  The more you train your dog, the more your dog will want to train.  Training does not need to be a regimented, formal and boring process you feel you have to go through, if that is how it feels, then both you and your dog will fail.  Training does need to be consistent, clear, timely, interesting and challenging (too challenging and they will fail, not challenging enough and they will be bored so wont focus).  By challenging I mean mentally.  Most dogs can cope with any physical challenge but mental challenges are totally different and give dogs a totally different kind of enjoyment.  Dogs need us to interact with them in an interesting way but not in a way that can create manic behaviour e.g. repetitive ball throwing or boredom. Let us help your dog to enjoy learning and impove your bond bond and their behaviour at the same time.

Private dog training is also appropriate to address individual dog training problems such as dog recall training issues where the focus needs to be on one aspect of training.

Depending on owners’ requirements dog training can be at their homes, our home and may be taken outdoors at various times.

Client Reviews...


Marie explained my dogs problems really well and although Ollie still has his problems I am working on them. Marie is fantastic and gives everything in her training and what is the best way to deal with them. I would highly recommend anyone with a dog to take them to Marie, she is so kind and caring.




Marie has been an excellent support to us as a family in working with Teddy as a young puppy. She understands him and has learnt a lot about the breed before taking him on which we were impressed by as Chows are a very unusual breed which I have found most people do not understand. We also have a spaniel and we are asking Marie to work with her for a while. Other than that Teddy loves going !!!



Marie has been a great help in helping us to understand our dog’s behaviour and giving us some useful tricks we can put into practice on a daily basis to continuing to improve our dog’s training.


Dogue De Bordeaux

Our young Dogue De Bordeaux was pulling on lead, jumping up and poor recall. Marie was extremely helpful, explained the dogs needs and our mistakes as owners in a very professional and understanding manner.
