Private Training Appointments






How do they work?

Private sessions are tailor made for you and your dog.  They are particularly useful for focussing on a specific training need (such as coming back when called or walking nicely in a lead).  An initial session of 90 mins will include a discussion with you about how we will teach the new skill(s) and how to manage the issue whilst you are training.  A follow up summary email with handouts and video links will be sent so you have all the tools you need for practice.

This may be enough for you; however if you require one or more follow up sessions these are 60 minutes long and charged at a reduced rate.  If you require several sessions please ask about our private training packages that will be created to meet your need.

All sessions take place at your home or in a local, suitable outdoor area if this is more suitable for the training involved. 1:1 sessions are possible at Alresford Village Hall but these will incur the hire costs for the hall and be subject to venue availability.  

All private sessions are payable in advance either by paypal or BACS

PLEASE NOTE: these sessions are not designed for behavioural problems such as aggression, seperation anxiety etc. but for personal training needs.  Behaviour consultations have a different format and fee structure.


Current fees are 

£85 for intial 90 minute appointment

£50 per 60 minute follow up appointments

These fees include up to 5 miles of travel

Additional travel is charged at £0.50 per mile
