• ‘Welcome Home’ Puppy Session

  • PLEASE NOTE:

    Thursday 5th May 2022 Covid 19 Update

    In light of the increasing infection rate, Right Start Dog Training will continue to offer face to face sessions in clients' homes but under a strict Covid Protocol. All clients will need to be fully vaccinated and myself and all involved in the consult will need to carry out a Lateral Flow Test (if possible) on the morning of the consult.  This will ensure the safety of all.  

    Our popular Zoom consultations will, of course, continue to be offered during this time.

  • This session is for after you have collected your puppy! Many people find that after just a few days once the pup is beginning to feel more confident and at home in their new environment, they start to encounter some typical puppy behaviours. These are very common issues and can be dealt with in a kind, fair and effective way using modern reward based methods. Addressing these issues early and quickly will help to get the pup and owners back on track!

    The session will be tailored to your needs but typically includes:

    • What to do and what not to do in those first few days
