Puppy training programmes for new owners

At Woody’s we believe that every dog is a good dog and that owners want to do what’s best by their four-legged friends. Our role is to help you set off on the right path with your new puppy, or to get you both back on track if you are having difficulties with your older dog.

One-to-one dog training and interactive walks

Woody’s style of training is reward-based, fun, interactive and tailored to each unique dog and their owner. We offer a calm, compassionate presence to literally walk you through simple training steps that can help to prevent or to correct undesirable behaviours, cultivating a positive, mutually respectful partnership between human and canine.

Why one-to-one?

While dog training classes play an invaluable role, they don’t necessarily suit every person, every dog or every stage of a dogs’ life. Your dog may find a busy class situation overwhelming. You may find it hard to learn in a group environment or the class times and weekly commitment may not suit you. Some dogs and people enjoy the class situation but also benefit greatly from personal one-to-one sessions.

Relaxed training in your home environment

Dogs learn best in a calm environment which is why Jo from Woody’s dog Training can come to your home to address general and specific areas of dog training with you in a modern and practical way.
