Puppies are such a joy to work with!

They are also a massive responsibility for us because the early weeks are the foundations for the rest of their life so, while we make work with them fun, we also take what we do with pups very seriously.

We have home visits, courses and TTouch sessions for pups, to offer them and their families a rounded education in setting up a loving respectful two-way relationship with clear communications, teaching pup self-control, increasing proprioception, learning what to do (or what not to do!) and when.

Learning the subtleties of dog communication is so important, and saves so much tension and stress when dealing with pups so we pay great attention to this.

Giving ongoing support by phone throughout the training is so useful to clients

Choosing a Pup….

It is worth taking a great deal of care and thinking time before getting a puppy. They are the most fantastic and fascinating of creatures, but, even for experienced owners, they are without fail time consuming, frustrating, stressful little darlings at times!!

The breeder bears a big responsibility in preparing the pups for, in particular, coping with life’s stressors. Unfortunately some of them do a poor job, either through greed, as in puppy farms, or ignorance, simply not being aware of the complexities.

The problem is that, once one has visited the pups, the heart falls in love and all common sense flies away!! A good idea is to do lots of research and talking BEFORE the visit. The Association of Pet Dog Trainers and Kennel Club websites have sensible suggestions and we are happy to chat too.
