Remote Consultations

Due to recent events and social distancing, Woody’s Dog Training will be offering Puppy Training and One-to-One Sessions via WhatsApp or Skype. The process will be as follows:

  • I will send you an initial history and booking form which you fill-in and return to me.
  • We book a slot for an initial phone call which will be confirmed back to you upon receipt of payment.
  • You send me any extra info such as videos if required and I will make a plan for you and your dog.
  • We can then implement the plan via Skype or WhatsApp – I can demonstrate and coach just as if I were present with you.
  • I will then send you any extra information and a session summary as required.
  • You can send me regular updates via phone/email/video.
  • We can plan and progress to extra sessions as required.

One-to-One Training Sessions

Jo will come to your home, gather some background information about you and your dog then make a personalised training plan for your particular needs. This can be a one-off session lasting up to two hours, or it can be several sessions depending on the issues presented. Further sessions can be continued from your home or out walking.

£55 for an initial session, £40-£45 per-session thereafter. For additional travel time charges see below.  Please enquire for concessions.

Puppy Training

It’s much easier to train-in good habits than to un-train bad ones, so by starting your puppy training at an early stage it puts you both at a huge advantage for the rest of your lives together.

With easy-to-follow guidelines, Jo can help you to achieve the right start as you welcome a new family member into your home.  She will set you on your way with everything you need including recall, loose-lead-walking and proper socialisation. You will also cover common issues such as toilet-training, mouthing and jumping-up.  Jo will teach you about how dogs learn so that you can cultivate desirable behaviours and learn how to avoid less desirable ones – all from the comfort and real-life training situation of your own home!

£45 for an initial in-depth two-hour session including your comprehensive puppy training guidelines – this can be emailed or given to you prior to your puppy’s arrival to help you feel thoroughly prepared!

£30 for each follow-up session, up to 6 months old. £40 thereafter.

Pre-Purchase Prep Session

Are you are getting (or thinking about getting!) a puppy or an older dog? Would you like to feel fully prepared? Then why not book a pre-purchase prep session?

We will cover topics such as dietary and exercise requirements, basic training, socialisation and mental stimulation, toilet training, children and dogs, puppy-proofing, integration into the home, general care and any other questions that you might have.

£45 for two hours – including Training Guidelines & other relevant info.

£30-£40 per follow-up session.

Pro-Active Training Walk

If you feel that having experienced support and advice while out walking would be helpful then Jo can join you, or she can take your dog out for an individual practical training walk and exercise session. Jo can also join you with her dogs for a socialisation walk. Initial one-to-one assessment required.

£30 per one-hour walk.

Fear of Fireworks Session

Is your dog scared of fireworks? Would you like to do more to help them during those highly stressful times? If yes then don’t put it out of your mind until next season. With a little bit of forward planning it is possible to reduce your dogs fear of fireworks for good, so don’t delay – do your dog a favour and book a Bargain Session. Jo will set you and your dog well on the way to banishing that fear of fireworks for 2020 and beyond with a one hour home visit for just £25.

Jo is based in Stroud, Gloucestershire. She covers all surrounding areas including Gloucester, Cheltenham, Painswick, Nailsworth, Tetbury, Cirencester, Dursley and more.

Travel is charged at 45p per-mile for destinations over a five-mile radius.
