Walk and train is a brand new service we are launching over winter this year. Training dogs is not easy – in all honestly it’s an entire skillset you need to learn in order to effectively train you dog. So, to cut out the stress and struggles we are here to do the training for you, and assist in building your dogs skillset which in turn aids you are an owner to have a more successful training journey.

At our walk and trains, we require a minimum of 2 sessions a week. These sessions will last 30 minutes at the designated training location. Your dog will be required to travel with us in the van to locations deem suitable to train at. Sessions are booked in 4 weekly blocks, similarly to our current dog walking service.

Once we have reached a point that we feel your dog is progressing well an the foundations are strong we hand it back to you and guide you through the remaining stages to proof the new behaviours with you.

Dog training is built on foundations: while we are laying the training foundations we will require you to work on your relationship and ensure the dog is not practising unwanted behaviours out with our sessions to ensure you get the best results. This is something we will wholeheartedly guide you with as part of the programme.

Walk and trains will namely be carried out my Lhanna, unless we otherwise feel Jamie would be better suited.
