Early 1:1 Puppy Training With Sally Stephens
These sesions can be tailored to suit you and your puppy. Scheduled for your convenience and to suit your availability.

The earlier your puppy can be socialised (to interact happily and safely with other puppies, people and situations) the greater the chance you have of raising a confident and happy dog.
Puppy classes in groups aren’t for every puppy or person, so a 1:1 might get you and your puppy off to a better start. We can be flexible on times to suit your lifestyle.
There is so much conflicting information available these days. Happily, times have moved on from punishment based training and the pack theory where you have to be the boss. We offer a more relaxed approach where you and your puppy can live together in harmony. You have chosen to be the carer for your puppy and we will work with you to make his or her life as fulfilling and happy as it can be, whilst being stress free and flexible for you. We aim to help you raise a relaxed, confident puppy who likes people and other dogs (whilst not obsessing about either) who is able to visit parks and pubs and other people’s homes with you without causing stress to anyone else.
We engaged Sally with the New Puppy 1:1 meeting and follow up programme . It's very clear that Sally knows her stuff and immediately put us at ease. It had been 15 years since we last had a puppy and to a degree we had lost our confidence and needed some guidance to make sure our pup was going to be a happy and well-behaved dog. It turned out we were doing a lot of the right things anyway, and we learned some new strategies to deal with certain doggy behaviours . The fact that we had a week of "air time" with Sally after the 1:1 was good too, as we needed some support on an issue a few days afterwards which was dealt with brilliantly . Even if you feel you are experienced with dogs , no two puppies are the same and I would recommend the time with Sally as a brilliant " investment" in your dogs' future. " (John and Puppy Reggie)
