Has your bored puppy gone self-employed?

Have they taken up interior design? Or started garden make-overs?

Maybe they’ve decided they are your entertainments manager?

Trick training is perfect for giving a busy puppy mind a proper job, that you choose. Tricks can be really helpful for puppy management and safety.

Are you having trouble brushing feet and clipping nails?

Learn how to teach ‘paw’

Is drying their paws a wriggly nightmare?

Learn how to teach ‘spin on a towel’, or ‘wipe your paws’

Is your recall a bit hit and miss?

Learn how to teach ‘middle’ and ‘touch’

And if you get the bug, and love a shiny award and certificate, as a Qualified trick Dog Trainer and Assessor I can get you through the Trick Dog Awards Scheme too!

Puppy School

When it became clear that we’ll do the Puppy School online (due to the lockdown) I was a bit skeptical, to be honest. However, Michelle’s class was not only relaxed but also very informative and helpful in making us understand how our puppy processes information and how to get her do things and how to work with her. Michelle sends notes and short video clips from the lesson and these help in practicing at you own pace (especially if the puppy was not very cooperative during the lesson!). She also keeps you engaged until the following session with little challenges and fun homework (eg researching the breed and find different bits of information). She’s available for questions outside the lessons (she’s very knowledgeable!), which is a big bonus if you struggle with a particular issue. Drawing the line, it didn’t matter at all that it was online: the class was a great learning experience for both our dog and ourselves!
