Tailored 121 puppy classes run in your own home so that you have Claire’s full attention, and the puppy doesn’t have to contend with learning in a stressful and over stimulating class environment so that you both progress, fast! My philosophy is to teach puppies, and help owners in their own home.
The reasons as to why this is considered to be of far greater value than the traditional visiting a village hall class are almost too many to mention. Key reasons are;
1) Training starts straight away, there is no waiting for vaccinations. This allows us to set up puppy on the right path from day one, there are no bad habits to undo.
2) You get Claire’s undivided attention for the entire session, not just the 5 minutes of one to one time traditional classes can offer. Tailored advice and homework is provided for your puppy’s needs.
3) The puppies learn how to behave in their own home, something that cannot be mimicked in a hall environment. We witness the puppy’s natural behaviour, not suppressed or exaggerated behaviours triggered from a class environment. Overly reactive or stressed puppies will not impact on your puppy’s learning or social development.
My basic puppy training package consists of 3 x 1hr sessions, where amongst other things we will cover mouthing, toilet training, jumping up, front door safety, stealing, sit, down, recall, loose lead walking, bonding with the puppy, appropriate play and accepting grooming and medical examinations. After the puppy is fully vaccinated I go on a dog walk with you to cover socialisation and habituation. Each session is accompanied with hand outs and notes to help you remember everything we discuss, and you receive a free training pack.
Claire also offers a range of training and behavioural consultants for dogs of all ages, including loose lead walking, trick training, jumping up, phobias and reactivity. A dogs behaviour can seem wonderful, amazing, bizarre, infuriating and often just down right baffling. Seemingly from no where dogs can develop problem behaviours, issues, phobias, or just simply seem to regress from their initial training. No matter the issue, Claire will be able to help. Jumping up at people uninvited, pulling on the lead, not coming when called, chewing destructively, not listening to you, toilet training, fearful/reactive to strangers, fearful/reactive to dogs, excessive barking.

Claire has 18 years experience, is fully qualified and is constantly studying to understand the latest understanding in dogs behaviour and how they learn, and is often requested to hold workshops throughout the country. All training is force free, effective and enjoyable for both dog and owner!
Claire has been absolutely amazing to train with. I have a Black Lab puppy, who is obviously very inquisitive and excitable.
Claire had his undivided attention from session one, and explained the training steps clearly, so that I could get the same from him. We've gone on to learn lots from Claire and I am so so glad that we chose her. Fergus, is doing unbelievably well, and I have a good understanding of the principles of training, so I can add new lessons and tricks myself. Claire is also very responsive to email and messages, which is so helpful when you need that little bit of advice inbetween sessions. I can't recommend Claire highly enough. THANK YOU!

We had the pleasure of meeting Claire this morning. She came to help us train our 11 week old wheatie. With in minutes she had him sitting to command she came with her own treats a puppy pack and beautiful toys. After she left rocky had a sleep and now wants to train all afternoon what a different puppy. Thank you so much Claire we will see you next week. Sam Moore More...
Rummy has always been fearful of strangers so having a judge come up to him was both stressful for him and for me. I like my dogs to be happy in the ring and decided I needed help to get us both back on track.
Claire’s gentle approach and extensive knowledge of dog behaviour was quite frankly something I have never seen the likes of. Rummy is now confident in having judges go over him and even went on to get BOB at Crufts. Something I could not have done with him without her expertise.
I’ve sort her help time and time again with problems that have arisen with my other 3 show dogs and she has sorted all of them.
I have been to trainers in the past and have been very disappointed with what was achieved.
I am not given to writing reviews but I just had to let anyone out there thinking of booking Claire to do it. She is worth every penny. More...

Claire helped me totally turn around my anxious dog. She was supportive from the very beginning and only uses positive reinforcement. She's still my go-to for anything dog related! More...
I was so pleased that I choose Claire! She made me feel at ease at once and my dog truly loves her. Training at home made a huge difference to us, and now our dog really is a model member of our family. I would certainly recommend Claire to others. More...
Claire worked wonders with my puppy Tia, who is now a model member of our family! I loved that she came to us and could fit round our lives, I have learnt so much. I would definitely recommend Claire! More...
Claire is excellent in her training sessions. Everything is explained thoroughly, she is very patient. The daughter of a friend recently had a place and found it very beneficial.
We had a fab 1-1 troubleshooting session with Claire concentrating on showing and grooming followed by a group ringcraft class. Claire made an immediate difference - training both canine AND human!! More...
Claire works wonders with any dog & owner! Would thoroughly recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their relationship with their dog, or even just to advance their own abilities.
