Adele is a Pro Dog Trainer who specialises in games based training.
I use concepts such as proximity, confidence, grit and optimism which make up part of their personality to train the dogs. For example, proximity games which help with your dog wanting to stay close to you will improve behaviours like pulling on a lead, going too far ahead on your walks, no/limited recall, or chasing anything that moves. The list goes on! We will grow a dog that wants to work for you, has desire to be with you and this is all through the power of games. You will end up being the best thing in your dog's life and environment, not the other dog in the park, not the squirrel that's just ran across your path and not the exciting rabbit with an enticing bushy tail.
DOG SCHOOL CLASSES
Personal dog training from £40
With the personal dog training package, Adele will be able to understand your dog’s personality and see which areas need to grow and develop. You will obtain a greater understanding of why your dog behaves in the way he does. You will have an action plan to follow that will help you work towards your goals. Adele runs her personal dog training sessions on a three weekly basis as this gives you the time to implement her management strategies and incorporate her recommended strategies into your life.
Please note that for some behaviour struggles like reactivity more than one session will be required, this will be discussed in your initial phone consultation.
Life skills is an excellent opportunity to learn about games based training and put this into practice! We will be covering various concepts every week which will skill up you and your dog. Life skills is a great class to jump into after the puppy program or if you want to top up your training or find a new exciting way to train and have fun with your dog!
Concepts that are covered
Focus- a dog that listens and responds to you in exciting & distracting environments. We need our dogs to be solution seeking optimists who love their reinforcement rich lives.
Boundary training- a life skill that in the face of excitement (e.g. visitors) they can listen and show self-control. These are especially important in multi-dog households!
Positive pairings- build confidence and make novelty normal. So crucial for a happy dog!
Leash off, game on- build a great relationship and off leash confidence
Play- the value & importance of play 💜
Confidence- a confident dog will be ok with novel and ambiguous situations. Life can be very hard when your dog lacks confidence
GrrrrrRIT- to have determination and desire to keep trying and keep going even when there is little or no reinforcement given
Proximity- your dog will LOVE being close to you
Fitness fun- helps with fitness and posture with the added benefit of boosting your relationship.
Recall- achieving the dream... a dog that returns when called no matter what!

This program is for owners who want their puppy to grow and develop into a dog who can engage, focus and be confident in different environments. Getting a puppy is the most exciting and fun experience however there can be challenges such as puppy biting. This program will equip you for the ups and downs of puppyhood.
You will get tips and advice on:
Boundary training- we highly recommend using a crate to develop a safe, happy place for your dog. This helps with toilet training, preventing separation anxiety and a place for your dog to be calm. Adele loves to mix up boundaries, you never know when you need to pop your dog on a safe spot to get them into a safe area.
Puppy biting- ohhh this can hurt! Puppies biting is totally normal, this program will equip you in what to do to stop him biting.
Loose leash walking- we will develop focus on us so that your puppy will want to stay by you and not pull to see other things.
Recall- through games, recall will be effortless, and your puppy will find you the most exciting thing in his environment.
Socialisation- Adele is a firm believer of promoting engagement and focus on owners whilst allowing puppies to meet other dogs in a safe and limited way. There is a fine line between having too much socialisation and not enough.
Handling and grooming- Adele was a dog groomer so she can provide you with grooming tips that will equip you and your puppy for their first puppy groom. This part of the course is also super important for vet visits.
The Puppy program is a 8 week program and runs on a Tuesday at 5:15-6:15pm.
The investment for the Puppy Program is £80 for the 8 sessions. You will be set homework at the end of every session for you to try out between each session. There are chances to win prizes throughout and upon completion you get a fantastic reward!
