Betty Kisses Pet Services 

Premier Pet Care in County Durham 

Dog Training, Group and 1-2-1 sessions

Mans best friend

Well at last, here at Betty Kisses Day Dare and Training Centre I have the time and my own space to present a range of dog training classes/experiences. The class-based lessons will be for a maximum of five learners and their dogs. All lessons are an hour long followed by a recap and a bit of a chat after.

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 my help I 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.

FOUNDATION TRAINING

Basic training for dog and human so both have the tools to co-exist in today’s hectic world. Suitable for puppies and junior dogs, an hour’s practical hands on lesson with time after the lesson for an informal chat and recap on that day’s theme. Be warned there will be homework!
