Indoor Group Training Classes

indoorDuring the colder months, training doesn’t stop. We simply take it indoors. Kay continues to offer a selection of classes, from puppy to advanced classes, in selected locations in Dorset. All venues used by Kay allow for enough space, and classes are kept smaller and intimate to allow your dog to have the attention they need, but the space they need to be able to move freely and learn.

 Confidence Development

confidenceHas your dog had a bad start in life? Or have they simply had an experience which has left them anxious and lacking confidence?  For many dog owners, reactivity and fearful behaviour is something that they often struggle to overcome. Kay has worked with a wide range of breeds and behaviours and can help you and your dog overcome challenging environments and situations that usually leave your dog overwhelmed, causing them to shut down. Developing confidence in your dog is as much about you, as it is about them; recognising the triggers, helping them to focus on you and dissociating a bad experience with their learned response are just some of the ways that Kay helps you, and them, build confidence and uncover new independence. BOOK HERE
