I cover the county of Hampshire, but am based in South Hampshire around the Botley/Hedge End/Whiteley area where my outdoor training venue is located. I am willing to travel further afield but mileage charges may apply (these will be discussed at the time of booking).

I am available for new client appointments on weekdays between 10am to 4pm and occasional evening or weekend appointments.

Depending on the issues that you are experiencing with your dog, you may require either a behaviour or training assessment and this will be explained once I have your new client form and description of the issue you need help with. 

behaviour assessments cover

  • Behaviours being exhibited by dogs over 6 months of age. 
  • Behaviours that may be a result of a physical, mental or physiological trauma. 
  • Owner absent related problems.
  • Aggression towards humans or other animals. 
  • Predatory behaviour towards livestock, wildlife or other animals within the household. 
  • Noise phobias or social anxiety.
  • Behaviours that may be caused or influenced by a medical condition (hence a vet referral is required)

training assessments cover:

  • Any puppy behaviours or dogs under 6 months of age. 
  • Behaviours resulting from a lack of training or understanding not based on a emotional trauma.
  • Introduction to positive reinforcement training and how to manage unwanted behaviours effectively, efficiently and ethically. 
  • Ideas and help with enrichment games, playing with toys and scentwork.
