Recall and Relationship Training Workshop and Packages

Are you tired of chasing after your dog?
Do they ignore you, running off to meet other dogs or people?
Do you feel embarrassed or anxious about your dog’s behaviour?

Would you like to improve your dog’s recall so you can give them more off-lead freedom?

Don’t worry!  I’m here to help

Recall problems are very common and you are not alone, in fact, it is the most common reason that I am asked for help with, in my one to one coaching sessions.

A relaxed, friendly, personal approach that you and your dog will really enjoy

Offering training where your dogs spend most of their lives enables me to give you personal support, helping and coaching you to train your puppy or dog in its own, home and the local environment.

I take only a small number of clients at a time and do ask that my clients commit to their training plan. This gives me the best chance of helping you and your dog, to be successful and reach your training goals.

A successful recall can take time, patience and perseverance, I can’t wave a magic wand or offer quick fixes, but I can work with you and your family every step of the way, taking a mindful approach to dog training using science-based, force-free, reward-based training methods.

Sign up to one of our Pawsitive Connection Walks Recall programmes and start teaching your dog to reliably return to you every time.
