Dog Home Training

Dog Home Training

As dog owners we understand that sometimes you may come across problems with your dog that you are unsure how to deal with. Contented Canines Home Training sessions are designed specifically to solve these problems, working as a team with you to overcome any issues you may be having. We are committed to helping you and your dog in the most efficient and effective way.

Why Home Training?

Busy lifestyles, young families and work commitments may prevent you from attending our regular weekday evening classes. We can put together a home training session programme to enable you to cover all of the exercises on the course – and more – in the comfort of your own home.

Some dogs are simply not comfortable in a training class environment. This may be due to previous negative experiences of training classes or nervousness around other dogs or groups of people. If dogs are overwhelmed by fear or anxiety they are unable to learn new information in which case they may learn better coping techniques when given more space in an environment where they are relaxed and happy.

We all want to enjoy our lives with our dogs, and we want to make sure they are happy too. Sadly sometimes things don’t go as planned. Your dog isn’t happy and neither are you! Some dogs have complex problems which need addressing with careful assessment and planning. We can work with you to design a programme which will focus on you and your dog’s individual needs and requirements.

With all of the often conflicting information out there from other dog owners, books, and the internet it can be so difficult to know where to start. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to any dog problem, each needs careful assessment and a tailored approach. To focus on specific problems we recommend a concentrated home training programme.

Our trainers are experienced dog handlers and we are fully insured for training in your own home. For advice on whether home training or our training classes are right for you, please get in touch.

STEP ONE – INITIAL ASSESSMENT – Our home training and training walks/day training packages begin with an Initial Assessment to make sure that we have all of the information we need before we begin our training programme. During an initial consultation we will take down more detailed information about you and your dog, and the issues you would like to work on. We will then be able to recommend an appropriate training programme and demonstrate and practise the exercises.

STEP TWO – FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS – Following your Initial Assessment we will put together a programme based on your individual needs. A typical programme will include weekly training sessions with written notes and plans and ongoing email and phone support.

We would usually recommend booking a block of appointments so that you see better results and gain better insight and guidance from the trainer. We can offer discounts on multiple bookings. Mileage charges may apply.

Once you have we have received your form and payment you will be sent a link to our online diary so that you can see the time slots that we have available. (Please note at busy times you there may be a 4 week wait for an Initial Assessment.)
