Phone Consultation (continuing throughout lockdown)
Phone consultation for any specific puppy issues you may be facing. Phone consultations are 30 minutes, whereby you will inform me of the topics you are wishing to discuss prior to our chat, and I will fill you in on lots of information to assist you. Ideal if you are out of the areas I cover, or if you just have the odd issue which you feel doesn't warrant a home visit.
*Please be advised, without having met your puppy, any advice via phone is based purely on experience and theory-based knowledge. Whilst age, breed specific behaviours and lifestyle are all to be considered, these alone will not dictate behaviour and there is no substitute for viewing a pups behaviour in person, face to face.
Puppy sitting with training
Puppy sitting with some training by myself, added in too. Ideal for when you have to go out, or when you're working. I have worked for many years with puppies, enabling me to gain the very best from a training session and ensure a puppy is not only confident and comfortable with exercises covered, but also has a lot of fun too! I work 1 on 1 with your puppy, we go through various training exercises together, and I ensure they have been appropriately exercised. You will receive a follow up email after my visit, detailiing how your puppy faired with the training, pictures of activities covered, and any additional information you need to know. Available in 1 hr slots. Includes use of my training equipment and interactive toys. Feeding included if needed.
Following on from the puppy sitting above, dog walking for 1 or 1.5 hour slots. Walk, little bit of obedience training, games and cuddles. Feeding included if needed.
