puppy and young dog training

Key benefits of  1:1  sessions?

We train in ‘real life‘ situations; 
eg at your home, a local park or even a country walk. 
If you’d like to teach your pup to recall amid distractions at your local park – we can.
If you’d like to teach your puppy to walk beside you with a loose lead – we can
If you’d like to teach your puppy to settle while you eat dinner – we can.
Each session tailored to your puppy’s needs – it’s like having a Private Tutor!   You enjoy better results, faster.

Your well trained puppy is a joy to be around!

Your puppy will understand what’s expected of him or her and make the ‘right’ choice; whether that’s coming when you call, ‘leaving that thing’ alone or walking nicely on lead.  And, you’ll learn how to ‘talk dog’!  Which means you can give your puppy clear, consistent messages and enjoy the best possible relationship together.  Please note that Joyful Dogs only use positive reinforcement training techniques.
