1-2-1 Training

1-2-1 training is often helpful for people who are unable to attend class training or who benefit from that one to one learning experience. Perhaps your dog would not cope in a class environment.1-2-1 training is designed to have you and your dog in mind. All 1-2-1 training must begin with a consultation. The consultation can be done in person (mileage charges may occur) or over the phone.

Initial Consultation (£30 + mileage depending on location)

This is the first step in your 1-2-1 training journey. The consultation is approximately 1 hour in length and is designed to get to know you and your dog and discuss any problems you are encountering by going through a series of detailed questions. The consultation will help to determine the best course of action for you and your dog and following on from the appointment a series of suggestions will be given.

**Please note that some severe dog problems (i.e. dog to human aggression, dog to dog aggression, severe resource guarding, separation anxiety) are not dealt with by Ruff. Depending on your behaviour issue you may be asked to contact a local dog behaviourist who is highly recommended.
