Individual Dog Training

 

One to one individual dog training in the South Somerset, West Dorset area. 

I am a Certified Pro Dog Trainer with Absolute Dogs.  Our training methods are based around concepts such as Calmness, Confidence, Optimism, Tolerance of Frustration, Disengagement, Independence…. where we use fun and innovative strategies including 3 minute games to help change your dog’s personality and in turn their behaviour choices. I will teach you and your dog real life skills.

However if your dog has serious aggression issues, you will be wise to work with your vet who can ensure your dog is not unwell and refer you to a good behaviourist. I am happy to work alongside other professionals if you would like to try the concept, games based approach that I have the skills to teach.

I attend workshops and courses regularly to develop my knowledge including the recent Absolute Dogs Super Trainer Live and Pro Dog Trainer Development Days.  I am currently studying towards a Diploma in Advanced Canine Behaviour.  See my About Us page for all my CPD learning.

 

Dog problems we can help with include but are not limited to:

  • Lack of calmness
  • Attention seeking
  • Barking
  • Eating poo
  • Sensitivity to noise
  • People or dog reactive
  • Counter surfing and general manners
  • Destroying by chewing

  • Pulling on the lead
  • Running away recall issues
  • Chase
  • Obsessive behaviours – e.g. shadow chasing, licking
  • Separation Related Behaviours
  • Running over to other dogs
  • Excessive playing with other dogs

Currently I offer individual training sessions either in your home, on a walk or at an agreed location, for example, we may use a secure field for recall training.  A single 1-2-1 session costs £80 which can take up to 2 hours though a struggle is unlikely to be resolved in one session, therefore I recommend booking at least a block of 3 sessions taking them 2 weeks apart, see the packages available below. Unlimited support is available either through a private Facebook Group, a secure area on my website, or by email if you prefer. 

Puppy Training

You are welcome to use this service to help get you started with a new puppy, the sessions will be tailored to the age of your puppy and geared towards current struggles so we can nip them in the bud early. It’s much easier to prevent unwanted behaviour before a puppy teaches themselves.

The quickest way to contact me is via email to hello@kamazedogs.co.uk or through my Facebook Page – Kamaze Dogs.  You can phone 07840 796044 but please be mindful that the phone signal is often poor in the area and sometimes phone messages take a while to come through. I will do my best to respond to you within 48 hours unless your dog training need is urgent, please make sure I know if this is the case.
