1-to-1 Dog Training Lessons


1-to-1 sessions are aimed at those who prefer not to join a group training class or those who have a specific training objective that they would like to focus on. Lessons typically last one hour and can either be taken as a one-off or as part of a course structured entirely around your needs. The session can take place in your home or a local park or, if you prefer, you can come to our training centre in Redbourn. At our training centre you can take advantage of our secure paddock, which is perfect for letting dogs off the lead safely during training.

All our lessons are designed to be fun for both the dog and the owner therefore we will use a range of rewards including food, toys and verbal praise to motivate the dogs and to teach them when they have got it right.

The list below shows some of the areas frequently covered in private lessons however if you are interested in any other area, just give us a call!

  • Improve your dog's recall –train your dog to come when he is called in any situation.
  • Walk on a lead without pulling.
  • Stop your dog jumping up.
  • Improve sits & downs –train your dog to sit (or down) with more distractions or when you walk away from him or for a longer period than before.
  • Distance control & 'Emergency Stops' – learn how to get your dog to stop (and sit or lie down if you want!) when he is far away from you.
  • Scent training – train your dog to find objects by following a scent trail.
