Why choose a private training session?

One-to-one training sessions are flexible and convenient, we come to you and work with your schedule.

Group classes have a set curriculum and set of skills that are taught while private training sessions can be customised to suit your needs. They are a great way to help you get started with training, especially if there is a need for concentrated work on specific issues. One-to-one training is also recommended for dogs who may struggle with all the distractions of a group class environment.
