Getting Started

With A New Leash on Life Dog Training

Not sure what you need or where to begin?


Don't worry about trying to make a program choice when you start reading all I have to offer here. Make contact by sending me an email, private message on social media, or giving me a call. I'll have plenty of questions to ask you that will guide us in the right direction.

Once I know more about you, your dog and your situation I'll be able to make some recommendations.

For those who are within my catchment


We usually begin with a single in-home session. That way you'll understand a little more about my training method and how it works. And I understand your situation a lot better before I recommend the best way to proceed.

Our foundation private session is a full lesson. It includes an introduction to tone, timing, and handling skills. It's also an assessment of your situation and training requirements. I'll loan you some equipment to try if I can see that you need more control. That way you don't need to rush out and buy anything ahead of time.

Plus, I'll leave you with some homework. Something obedience and something behavioural. That way, if you'd like to go on to complete a program we are already well on our way to our desired outcome.

For those clients who are outside my catchment


We'll talk through the online programs and how best to apply them to your dog or puppy. We'll talk about what sort of practice you'll need to put in and how to keep me in the loop. And what sort of reinforcement you'll need to achieve your desired outcome.

Not quite ready to get started yet?


I'm still more than happy to chat with you so that we can plan for the future so feel free to contact me any time.
