Puppy Advice and Training

Vicky offers a Puppy Package – full training and advice for your new puppy, for a one off all inclusive fee.

What’s included in the price?

  • A one-2-one visit to your home, lasting for as long as you need up to four hours.
  • Bespoke training and advice tailored to you and your puppy’s needs.
  • Ongoing back up for all training needs, up until your puppy is five months of age.
  • A DVD, or internet download, of Vicky’s ‘Smart Puppy’ film, which covers everything from puppy’s first night in its new home – to recall and walking on a loose lead.
  • A full report of everything discussed and demonstrated at the initial meeting, for you to refer to whenever needed.

There is absolutely no doubt that if you can start training and setting rules and boundaries for your new puppy from the moment it enters your home, you will significantly cut down the chances of your new canine companion developing those little behaviour quirks that can, all too quickly, turn into unwanted behavioural problems that you think will never happen to you –

Vicky can guide you through those few early weeks getting your puppy on the right track making your experience of owning a new puppy the best it can be.

Just some of the training and obedience covered within the package:

  • Toilet Training.
  • Mouthing.
  • Jumping Up.
  • Teaching puppy to be happy when alone.
  • Socialisation.
  • Walking on a loose lead.
  • Recall (coming when called).
  • and many more, but ultimately tailored to your individual needs.

Obedience Commands

Sit – Teaching your puppy to sit, makes for a great place to start, as the command is useful for creating calm when it gets overenthusiastic.

Recall – Coming to you when called in the home or on walks is one of the most important and essential commands and should be trained from the minute you get your new puppy.

Instant Down – This is not the simplest command for your puppy to master at the start but with persistence it can be learnt and is an ideal command to stop your puppy getting into trouble when out and about.

Stay – Very useful command, ideal for allowing you to enjoy visits to the local cafe, pubs or even just chatting to friends, by ensuring your puppy is socially accepted and thus allowing you to do more with your puppy, thus enriching your puppy’s life.

Leave – The ‘leave’ command helps keep your puppy out of danger if they do wander towards something which could bring them harm. The aim of this training is to teach your puppy that there might be something even better as a reward if they leave the object where it is and come to you.
These are all basic techniques which your puppy can be easily taught, allowing your puppy to enjoy more outings with you and so enriching both your lives.
