121 Dog Training Consultation

Your 121 dog training consultation will likely begin in your home, getting a clear picture of what daily life with your dog looks like and allowing training to begin in a place with low distractions. Every dog, environment and situation is unique so from there, Kate will work on a bespoke solution which help to progress your dog’s training.

Please note: Kate is not currently taking any new clients.

Here are some of the common challenges people want help with in their 121. But of course nothing training related is off limits!

Loose lead walking

Increasing your dog’s ability to focus on you, walk at your pace and ignore all of those smelly temptations is no easy feat, but it is possible! Just imagine being able to look forward to a nice relaxing stroll with your dog…


When our dog’s are off the lead, they have a choice; choose to come back to you or choose to stay with the other exciting things in the environment. If the latter is your current reality, recall training is for you. Kate will help you to teach your dog that coming back to you is always the best choice.

General obedience / foundations

Learning how to communicate with your dog is paramount to being able to train them to do what you might consider even the simplest behaviour. And while your dog might be able to wow everyone by rolling over on cue, focusing your attention on teaching their basic manners is going to pay dividends in your everyday life.

The art of being still

Do you wish your dog could just settle for five minutes while you enjoy a cup of coffee? Do you long for the day when they can join you in your favourite cafe or pub? Helping your dog to develop self control and resist temptation is something that will not only improve your life with your dog, it will also underpin all of your other training.

Good to know

1Who will be your trainer?
You will be coached by Kate Soames. Kate has worked with dogs for 20+ years and is passionate about helping people build the relationship with their dog that they’ve always dreamed of. Kate is an assessed and qualified member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers, having passed her assessment with a distinction, and is an advocate for training methods using reward and motivation based techniques. She also holds a graduate diploma in Applied Animal Behaviour.
2How much work will be involved from your perspective?
There’s no doubt about it; training a dog is time intensive and it's important that you are committed to ‘doing the work’ before signing up. We promise to give you all the tools, techniques and knowledge you need at every stage of your training but ultimately, your success lies in your commitment to training in between our sessions. Training should never feel like a slog; if it feels that way for you, we can guarantee it’ll be exactly the same for your dog which can result in progress going backwards. Two 15 minute training sessions incorporating play and bonding time in a day can be – and likely will be – more effective than a mammoth one hour training session. We’ll work with you to develop a schedule that fits in with your lifestyle. One thing’s for sure and that’s that the sense of achievement you will feel as you see your dog progress will make it all feel so worthwhile.
3Can you train my dog on my behalf?
Dog training and behaviour is the result of complex interactions between your dog, you, other people in your household, other animals in your household and factors within the environment. To train a dog in a different environment, with a different handler, means that problems are more likely to return when they re-enter their own household, reducing the likelihood of your investment paying off. For this reason, we work with owners and their dogs together, rather than taking your dog away and training them on your behalf.
