Happy puppy - red and white border colli

FOR THE PUPS

WHO FOR?

  • First time owners who want to get it right- it's scary out there!

  • Owners who haven't had a pup in a while - gosh everything's changed!

  • Owners who want to stop any inappropriate behaviour quickly

  • Owners who have a load of questions & want absolute clarification from an expert - there's so much confusion on the internet/TV/books!

Wondering whether this was such a great idea after all?

Or just want to start out on the right track?  

 

Don't worry, help is at hand! Our Puppy Options will allay all your concerns!

PREPARE FOR A WONDERFUL LIFETIME TOGETHER

What can beat the excitement of deciding a new puppy will be joining your family, planning for the new arrival, choosing him or her, the anticipation of the homecoming itself (with associated lots of new essential purchases!) and then the big day itself!

 

Everyone in the family looks forward to it and a lifetime together, lots of hopes, expectations and plans.

Often, new owners want to prepare for 'new puppy day'....what should they be doing prior to it, to make sure everything goes well.  Also when puppy comes home, how do they make sure they give puppy the very best start & iron out any little niggles before they become real problems prior to puppy class.  These are important first weeks & we can help make sure they are as positive and memorable as they should be

We now help new puppy owners worldwide as all of our options are provided remotely via Zoom

OUR METHODS

We never use force, bullying tactics or aversives (spray cans, water, shock, electric, prong collars etc.) these do nothing but add fear, startle or pain.  

 

We never ever have a 'one size fits all' plan for every dog - No dog is ever the same! If you have the knowledge to treat each behavioural issue and understand the motivation behind it, you can carefully craft a successful strategy to solve each issue - fortunately we do.

  

We only use positive and kind methods
