Personalised Training

1:1 dog training sessions mean we tailor things precisely for your dog.  Importantly, it also means your dog is trained in ‘real life’ situations – eg at your home, the park … the pub!  And because it’s 1:1, you can ask as many questions as you like.  Think of me as your Personal Trainer – and enjoy better results with your dog.  (Rest assured Joyful Dogs only use kind, positive reinforcement techniques).

Did You Know?

Giving your dog’s brain a work-out is as important as keeping him physically fit?   Brain work is tiring for dogs – so a few mins of brain games, means you’ll have an easier dog at home.  For example we could teach your dog to:

  • Bring the mail to you      dog trainer cheltenham
  • Tidy toys away
  • Scentwork games
  • And lots more!

The Result?

You feel proud!
