Do you want to fast track your puppy training, or have the flexibility to choose your training times or location? Then private puppy training is the way to go! It can be more beneficial for you and your new puppy as training is tailored to meet you and your puppy's personal and individual needs. You get one on one attention for you and your family and training is provided in the comfort of your own home and surrounding outdoor areas once they are fully vaccinated. 

Your puppy will learn to settle, drop, respond to a name, come when called, walk comfortable on a lead and greet people politely. As a dog parent, you will learn a range of positive reinforcement training methods,  how to prevent, solve and redirect natural unwanted behaviours and gain a good understanding of canine communication and  body language, just to mention a few. 
Whether you choose to have private one on one training at home or a public park, you will see enormous benefits with our private puppy training sessions as all training is done in everyday real life situations. Keep in mind; before we can take your little puppy outdoors, they will also need to be fully vaccinated for their protection.
