Pre Puppy Arrival Consultation

You’ve committed to getting your new puppy. How exciting!

And then it suddenly dawns on you…you have a million questions! What does your puppy need? What does the first month look like? When should you start training? Is your home puppy proofed? Should you crate train? This consultation is designed to answer any questions you might have (and those you haven’t yet thought about!) so you’re feeling prepared and confident before your new best friend arrives home.

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

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.
2Can you train my puppy 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.
