Practical Training 121 Sessions
A practical 121 session is tailored to the specific needs of you and your dog and helping ensure we prevent unwanted behaviours escalating and/or developing in the future.
They are recommended to provide you with the building blocks for a happy and stress-free life with your dog and can be either at your home or in the local community (e.g. a park).
The initial practical 121 would need to begin at your home to get a better understanding of you and your dog’s needs. To book an appointment, download the practical 121 training booking form HERE and follow the instructions provided. Evening and weekend appointments are also available.
If you are experiencing more severe issues with your dog, such as aggression towards other dogs or destructive behaviour when your dog is alone, then the behaviour consultation package will be the most appropriate option for finding a solution. See the behaviour tab for more information.
