Training & Behaviour Issues
Tel: 07481 906565
Cooper and I would like to give you and your Very Important Pooch a very warm welcome to VIPs - the ultimate in devoted dog care.
I'm a certified Canine Behaviourist and a firm believer in the gentle Positive Dog Training methods advocated by celebrity experts such as Victoria Stillwell and Karen Pryor. I have over 35 years experience of dog handling and ownership, being fortunate enough to have shared my life with a number of incredibly special pooches to date - in fact I just can't invisage life without a four-legged best friend, and am fanatical about dogs and their welfare!
I'm all too aware of the pain involved when we have to leave our beloved dogs and go to work - and this is where Very Important Pooches can help. Rather than fretting throughout your working day, you can be assured that your dog is in expert hands, and having great fun with his VIP buddies. I regularly upload pictures to Facebook, so you can keep tabs on your pooch's antics and get on with your day in a guilt-free frame of mind! Whether you choose an hour's walk, or decide on a full daycare option, your dog will benefit immensly from socialising with other friendly canines and being able to let off steam in a safe environment.
The first walk is free and I use this opportunity to carefully assess your dog so I can place him (or her) in a suitable group to match his personality traits, energy levels, fitness and age. The groups are kept small, and every precaution is taken to ensure your dog's safety and wellbeing, at all times. I am fully insured, and also have a certificate in canine First Aid. We travel to the finest parks and countryside in comfort, and there is a First Aid kit and fresh, cool water on board at all times.
Very Important Pooches offer a number of different services to ensure your dog's ultimate well-being, from hourly walks, full daycare, and pet sitting where your VIP can be cared for in the comfort of his own home whenever you need to be away. Walking and daycare is fantastic fun for dogs of any age, allowing them to become fit, healthy and mentally well-adjusted, along with helping alleviate unwelcome behaviour patterns such as separation anxiety, stress, persistent barking, self-harming and other destructive traits. Feeding, and washing can also be arranged if required, and whichever options you choose, you will have the peace of mind knowing that your faithful friend will be given the same devotion as if he were my own - and that means the VIP treatment!
Training services are also available, either in a small class, or on a one-to-one basis where I can work closely with you and your dog to get to the bottom of adverse behavioural issues.
If you are bringing a new puppy into your family, my Very Important Puppy parties are a great way to socialise your youngster. He'll meet and interact with other puppies of a similar age while learning the basics in a positive, fun environment that will ensure a stable grounding for his future. For more information and prices, please have a look at the Training page.
We look forward to meeting you and your VIP soon!
