Do you have:
- A rambunctious mutt who is doing your head in?
- A puppy with toileting, biting or fear issues?
- A dog with a particular challenging issue such as excessive barking, chewing, destructiveness, traffic reactivity or perhaps poor recall?
Get help with these and many other issues during a 1-on-1 training session in your own home with myself, Heather Watson, a certified dog trainer. I have worked with a wide variety of breeds, types and ages of dogs for a variety of clients including individuals and Munster Lost and Found rescue shelter. For a full list of qualifications see the About Me page.
For private sessions I can come to your house or garden so I can see the dog in their own environment. Depending on the issues we are working on we can work inside or outside or in the local area. I also have access to a training field in Carrigrohane (near Ballincollig) if that suits better.
During a private session we can discuss the issues you are having, work out a training or behaviour modification plan and then I will show you how to do the various exercises discussed and we can work with the dog/s together. I provide detailed written training notes after the session to help you work through the exercises on your own. If you have multiple dogs that need help the session can be shared out between them.
Cost: €60 per hour or €160 for 3 sessions over a number of weeks.
Availability: various weekday morning and afternoon slots available.
This is based on a travel time of no more than 30 minutes from my home in Dripsey…a small travel fee will apply beyond that. Payable by bank transfer, Paypal or Revolut, payment confirms booking.
Private Training Walk
Private Training Walks
I also offer training walks, where I take your dog out by myself and work on issues like recall, lead manners, reactivity, socialisation etc. There is no write up and only a brief chat with the owner afterwards so this option is only suitable after you have done a private session. It can be useful if you are physically unable to manage the dog or just need an experienced “kick start” to your training programme!
Cost: 30minutes for €20 or 1hr for €30.
Do you want to get your pup off to the best start? A private session (in your own home) combined with a series of Group Puppy Classes means you get the best of both worlds. Whether you have a specific problem you want to work on or just need help getting started with the basics, a private session is a great way to set everyone up for success. The group classes then help owners to put everything into practice and provide a place to practise socialisation skills.
Cost: €140 for 1xPrivate Session (1 hour) + 1 Group class series (4×1 hour sessions)
