I’m a big fan of making training fun and as such I always recommend the liberal use of rewards, for dogs AND their humans. But be warned: rewards can be withheld as well as given, so be prepared to do the work or forfeit your evening glass of wine!
“A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down”
My standard hourly rate is £85 (minimum booking 2 hours) but, as most of my clients invite me to return, I've created a range pre-paid packages which attract a discount. Behaviour packages are usually bespoke dependent on the nature and complexity of the problem, but please see below for a guide.
Standard pup-starter: 2 hour intro plus 1 x 1-hr follow up session £250 (saving £5)
Super pup-starter: 2 hour intro session plus 3 x 1-hr follow up sessions £400 (saving £25)
Private dog training
Basic dog training: 3 x 1-hr sessions £250 (saving £5)
Advanced dog training: 5 x 1-hr sessions £400 (saving £25)
Re-educating a dog who has developed a behavioural problem requires significant commitment from all involved. Prices start from £500 for an initial 2-hr consult, full report and 1-hr follow up session. Additional sessions are charged at £100 per hour with the final investment ultimately being determined by your needs and those of your dog. Please email me to discuss
Time to say goodbye
I love having the chance to catch up with 'my' dogs further down the road so, whatever happens in your training journey, I'm always happy to meet up for a refresher session (£85/hour). You (and your dog) call the shots and, as Mary Poppins says, “I’ll stay until the wind changes”.
I’m very happy for owners to arrange to train in small groups with friends (as long as all the dogs are happy). Please get in touch for more information.
