How It Works

Initial Assessment

Our training begins with a comprehensive assessment of your dog’s behavior, temperament, and specific challenges. This allows us to tailor the program to meet your dog’s individual needs.

Customised Training Plan

Based on the assessment, we create a personalised training plan that focuses on addressing specific issues while building a strong foundation of obedience and positive behavior.

One-on-One Sessions

After the planning, our qualified trainer, Carol will work closely with you and your dog in one-on-one sessions that aim at providing hands-on guidance, feedback, and support. This personalized approach ensures that both you and your dog feel confident and comfortable throughout the training process.

Consistent Communication

Open communication is key to success. We keep you informed about your dog’s progress, provide guidance on reinforcement techniques, and offer support as needed.

Gradual Advancement

As your dog progresses, we gradually introduce new challenges and environments to reinforce learned behaviors, ensuring a well-rounded and adaptable canine companion.

Carol did an amazing job on out cavoodles. Chloe and Ava looked so good and very calm and relaxed. Our eldest cavoodle has anxiety and Carol spend the time to reassure her that everything was ok.

Carol is a wonderfully calm pet groomer. She gave great advice and checked the cut with me during the groom. I took Bowie, my 5 month cavoodle, for his first groom and he came home calm, happy, soft and fluffy. Darrin was great when I called to make the booking and explained everything so well. Thank you Carol and Darrin.
