Classes are not always right environment for some people, nor do they suit all dogs, and there are lots of different reasons why. For instance you work shifts or have other commitments. Maybe you have time constraints that prevent you from coming to a class every week.
Not everyone has the skills to get their dog to the standard that they wish to achieve and they want help to progress to a higher level of competence. You may want to work on a specific aspect of training that you are finding difficult
Perhaps you do not like to train your dog with other people around as it makes you feel self-conscious
Sometimes classes are just not suitable for your dog's temperament.
Perhaps just as some people have a personal trainer to help them get fit, you would like a personal trainer to help you get the very best from your dog.
1 to 1 training is often the best way to improve your dog training skills.
When you first meet Gaynor, she will have a chat about what your main objective is, and what you hope to achieve in the session.
Gaynor will then work with your dog to assess your dog and evaluate which is the best way to incentivise your pet to reach your objective, and then she will teach you how to use this to achieve your goals.
Gaynor will give you, hands on pragmatic help and show you how to get your dog to do the obedience you require. you will then practice the new techniques and skills that you have been taught, so that you are able to practice them at home.
I just wanted to pass on my thanks to you for my 1-2-1 dog training recently. I was slowly losing the little bit of confidence that I did have when taking Poppy for a walk and when attending the Bronze Obedience class on a Sunday but in the hour that we spent with you my faith has been restored!! Since attending the 1-2-1 I have walked Poppy a number of times and it is like walking a different dog! I know we have a long way to go but I can now look forward to attending the Sunday obedience classes and enjoy taking Poppy for a walk.
Thanks again for your time it is really appreciated.
Emma, Kevin, Martha and Poppy
