Here is where the magic happens….

At our Initial Consult session (1 Hour), we go straight into your wants, training goals and why you’re here with your dog. You’ll meet directly with me Sean Purdy in the comfort of your own home. We’ll talk about why your dog is doing what they’re doing, dog behaviour and dog psychology and leadership training and  then the first steps needed to help you and your dog work towards your training goals. By the end of this consult you’ll know the specialised training method (Vocal correction) to get your dog responding to you Quickly.

Then we’ll advise on the best follow-up package to achieve these goals. After your consult, you’ll also receive a follow-up email from me with training and dietary handouts and notes to guide you and your dogs first steps.

dog training session

After all the training has finished, you should have that stronger owner to dog bond you’ve been waiting for. Picture those long off-leash walks, that perfect loose lead walking, a calm and polite greeting with dog or human or even a happy goodbye when you go to work.

All this training, the consistency and compassion you have put in to yours and your dogs welfare has paid off. You’ve created that harmonious balance between dog and human.

Our private one-on-one training session will give you and your dog all the skills necessary to go on and explore what life has to offer you both.

Look forward to training you.

Private Sessions FAQ


  • The amount of session needed will depend on the type of training needed, so for example if you need help with pulling on the lead or jumping up this will be a lot quicker than if you need behavioural work like dog on dog aggression, which takes much longer. Also the severity of the behavioural issue . It will also depend on your commitment to the training and being consistent with the training i give between our session. At the consultation i will be able to give you an estimated number of amounted session you may need and what training package to go for.


  • So with owners and households with more than one dog there is an extra charge of £100 but depending on how many issues all your dogs have will also depend on the training package I advise. So keep in mind depending if we are working on multiple dogs with varying training goals then the 9 hour session may be needed.


  • If you have to cancel or reschedule a session with me, please give 7 days notice so it goes enough time to offer your session time to someone else waiting to schedule. We understand things in life may get in the way unexpectedly which why we try to be flexible as much as possible. (Cancelation on the initial consultation short of the 7 days notice will be less the £30 non refundable deposit.)
