Off the beaten track- Online coaching
When the journey is challenging.......
Off the beaten track .... Would you like me to join your journey?
Sometimes we have to change path to find a new direction- At the moment our training journey may not be going as planned! We have all reached cross roads- Not knowing which way to turn with issues that we may be facing with our dogs, you may just want some advice from a qualified trainer to help you answer some questions, offer a training plan, video coaching to get you both onto the right path...
Everyone's journey with their dog is unique, we all have different dilemma's, some are small bumps in the road, some are complicated and turn into bigger worries.
Our new Facebook page "Off the beaten track" offers you a FREE community to join and share your adventures and training dilemma's and meet new doggy friends.
Our online coaching services are unique and bespoke to your needs- No joining fee and no subscription fees..

Bespoke and unique Let me know how I can help.
1-2-1 & in-home training sessions.
Not every dog (or owner) benefit from group lessons and like humans, every dog is unique in character and temperament and what applies to one dog does not necessary apply to another and hence the speciality of our 1-2-1 sessions allows for each session to be tailor made to focus upon the needs of you and importantly your dog.
Not all dogs enjoy being in a hall environment, so 1-2-1 training in the comfort of your own home, garden or in a pre-arranged outdoor venue where the problem behaviours occur such as the forest and beach can be a pleasant alternative.
The duration of 1-2-1 sessions provide a practical and effective alternative, offering dedicated time to ensure that you can implement all the training and that you understand your new exciting training journey!
If you have just taken on a rescue dog, you may find that our one to one sessions provide you with the level of help and training advice you need.
What can a 1-2-1 training session help with?
Depending on your needs, a typical session may cover areas such as
Walking on a loose lead
Coming back when called- Recall training
Polite greetings (not jumping up to say hello)
Wait and stay
Impulse control exercises
Training with distractions
The list is endless!
We strongly believe that no dog is ever too old to learn, and, in our experience, you can teach an old dog new tricks!
An initial session of 1.5 - 2 hours costs £75.00 (travel costs dependent upon location)
Subsequent sessions are charged at £55 per hour
For some training issues and exercises, it may be beneficial to undertake a few half sessions. If half hour sessions are appropriate, they will be discussed with you at your first consultation.
Available from the day puppy arrives until 6 months of age. In this 1.5 hour session we can cover any of the typical problems arising in the early stages of puppy ownership such as house training, jumping up and play biting.
Cost £70.00 (travel costs dependent upon location)
This option is available for any dog over the age of 6 months. In a two-hour session we will aim to cover a few training exercises which may include; teaching a sit, loose lead walking, teaching a recall, wait/stay and jumping up.
Again, this option is available for dogs over the age of 6 months. A training consultation involves a two hour visit from us, focusing on any specific training and behavioural problems you are having. As well as a visit you will also be provided with a training report detailing all the suggestions made during our visit and email support for the training covered.
Please contact us to discuss this option in more detail.
