dog behavioural modification consultations, 1to1 DOG TRAINING and Be the Perfect Puppy Parent training
Gift Vouchers are available for any of our training services or puppy classes. Please just get in touch for more details.
We run four week puppy classes for puppies up to the age of 5 months old. The classes are dedicated to nurturing the puppies development, teaching them basic obedience and educating owners about the various life stages the puppies will experience, and how these can affect their behaviour. The classes run on 4 week blocks and are held at St Boswells Village Hall on a Sunday morning.
behavioural modification consultations
If you don’t understand why your dog behaves the way he/she does, or would like help with training, we can help.
Consultation: (Pandemic Restrictions permitting)
A one to one consultation which is held within your home, takes as long as it takes – however normally around 60-75 minutes. Please contact us for full details.
A comprenhensive written report summarising my assessment of your dog’s behaviour, and the recommendations I make during the consultation.
Ongoing telephone and email support if necessary to ensure the modification training is progressing, plus a follow up appointment if required.
Looking For A Professional?
Laura has been studying dog training and behaviour since 2011 after owning a dog with severe behavioural issues. “I didn’t understand then why he was behaving in the way he was – I wanted to learn why a dog might behave in a certain way and why what I was doing wasn’t working. This led to me attending numerous seminars, workshops and reading every book available. It’s taken many years and a newly acquired fascination with science (something that completely eluded me at school) to now realise what I was doing wrong (and yes, I admit I made mistakes). I am an accredited member of the IMDTB (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers & Behaviourists), member of PDTE (Pet Dog Trainers of Europe) and am currently undergoing assessment of the APDT (Association of Professional Dog Trainers)
