Leaving your puppy when you need to return to work can be a worrying time. My puppy care programme has been specifically designed with working customers in mind to support you and your puppy during their early development all the way through to them graduating to adult dog group walks. Just like a dog walker I will come to your house and attend to your puppy on regular days/times when you are at work.
It’s amazing how much rest puppies actually need and many problems happen because puppies get tired and irritable. I understand the importance of keeping to your puppy’s usual routine of daily life with sleep in the day broken up with human interaction, walks, socialisation and training.
From 8 – 16 weeks
Puppy Enrichment Visit
Providing one to one sessions in your own home/garden
Enrichment activities, socialisation and habituation from a professional trainer.
During the visit your puppy will be toileted, given fresh water and fed as agreed.
I can pop in mid-morning and mid-afternoon to break up their day.
From 16 weeks – 6 months
Extended Enrichment Visit
Our Standard Enrichment Sessions are extended to 45 minutes £20
As your puppy grows and once they have been fully vaccinated we can start to combine our visits and extend them to include a short walks. We will be working on capturing focus and connection, recall and loose lead walking skills.
Your puppy will slowly be introduced to the sniff&wagg van to ensure they are happy traveling inside in a crate and it is a positive experience for them.
From 6 Months
Your puppy will begin to be introduced to some carefully chosen small group enrichment walks and begin some scentwork and low-level dog-parkour activities.
All interactions are carefully observed so if your puppy isn’t picking up on social cues from the other dog, I can intervene and move them away.
Having your puppy walked with one or two other well-mannered adult dogs under the watchful eye of a qualified trainer, will help your puppy to play politely, learn manners and other important skills, enabling them to become socially competent dogs.
12/14 months onwards
Group Enrichment walks
Your puppy can now fully graduate to our adult dog group enrichment walks and partake in all our training games, parkour and scentwork.
And as we will have already been working on focus, connection and recall skills, they will be off lead having fun with me and all their doggy friends.
I only use kind science-based training whilst on walks with your dogs
