What you get at the Dog Owner Training School
“Laura’s support has been invaluable in producing a happy dog who is well on the way to being a delight inside and out, on and off the lead, despite not being the easiest breed. She’s patient and creative, and is able to adapt her approach and advice to the preferences of individual owners and dogs. There are many dog training resources out there, some good, some perhaps less so, but Laura’s non-judgemental approach and willingness to engage directly with specific challenges stand out.” Mrs Moriarty
Learn in the environment where you and your puppy need the training to work. Attending classes in a village hall is very different experience to building the training into your daily life.
As part of Practical Puppy you will receive a paper training diary in the post.
Watching the online videos is just one of the steps in training your puppy, and the paper training diary helps keep you on track and record your progress.
“Excellent training programme. The videos are so informative, and full of advice. The benefit of having an online training programme means you can keep watching the videos time and again, and work at yours and your puppy’s pace, without feeling under pressure.
Laura is the fountain of all knowledge, who absolutely loves dogs, and is always available for a chat, and to offer advice when needed” G. Gasson

Highly recommend” T.Harris
