Dog Training, Group and 1-2-1 sessions

Since moving to our new premises, Betty Kisses Day Dare and Training Centre, we now have the time and space to present a range of dog training classes/experiences. The class-based lessons will be for a maximum of six learners and their dogs. All lessons are an hour long followed by a recap and a bit of a chat.

My mission is to make sure dogs and owners understand each other and to give owners the tools for a happy partnership. Alongside specific training classes we also offer Day Care Plus, your dog can take part in all the usual fun of day care and benefit from 1-2-1 training sessions throughout the day.

If you decide you need our help we need you to consider certain things first:

  • Open your mind…leave all your preconceptions and previous experiences at the door, let’s start afresh.
  • Commitment…you will need to commit time and effort every day.
  • Patience…dogs learn at different speeds and old habits sometimes die hard.
  • Enthusiasm…it’s infectious and dogs thrive on it.
