A more personal service



Our Head Instructor, Janet is available for puppy home visits

As a knowledgeable Kennel Club Assured Breeder, Janet is well qualified to advise puppy owners.
Janet has over 39 years’ experience of dog  behaviour and training, during which she has helped a a large number of owners train their dogs.  Janet has trained her own dogs for both obedience competitions & retriever work and has shown her dogs in breed classes at Crufts.  She has also been an expert breed representative, advising people at the Kennel Club’s annual Discover Dogs event.

Janet specialises in advising people who have never owned a dog before, or have not had a new puppy for some time. Janet can offer guidance on all the things a new puppy owner needs to know.

Visits can include advice on:

    • understanding normal behaviour
    • puppy socialisation / habituation
    • feeding & diet
    • general puppy problem management
    • toilet training
    • setting appropriate house rules for the dog
    • suitable toys to occupy the dog and avoid boredom
    • general health and welfare of your dog
    • legal requirements of dog ownership
    • good local places to exercise a dog
    • basic training
    • avoiding and curing problem behaviours

Unfortunately, due to painful arthritis in her knees, Janet is no longer able to take on older and more boisterous puppies

“I would never have thought of what you suggested, but it just makes so much sense.”

“I didn’t realise how much a new dog owner needs to learn, or how little I knew.”

“It’s so easy, when you know how.”


Janet charges 40 per hour. The minimum charge is one hour, with additional time charged at 10 per quarter-hour. For new puppy owners seeking general advice, covering most of the above points, the initial consultation is likely to last around one-and-a-half to two hours, but it can be tailored to suit your needs and pocket.

Janet does not make any additional charge for travelling time in the local area.

Janet will be accompanied by John (because Janet does not drive) and may bring one or more of her own dogs to assist with socialisation, or to demonstrate training methods

Our other instructors provide
 dog walking, daycare, grooming, and training services.
