Training a rescue dog

Adopting a rescue dog is extremely worthwhile and can be very rewarding. You should ensure that you do this with your eyes open. Some rescue dogs can have behavioural issues and it is essential that you are prepared for this, to ensure that when you adopt the dog it is for its forever home. Kirsty can help with this.

Give you Guidance

Kirsty is extremely experienced when it comes to rescue dogs and specialises in this area. She can help guide you before you get your dog in a pre-rescue dog virtual / home session or to help you after adoption at an outside one to one training session.

Some of the common behavioural issues that rescue dogs may have are as follows:

  • Separation Anxiety

  • Toilet Training

  • Lead Reactivity

  • Human Interaction

  • Lack of Socialisation

  • How to Handle your Dog

  • Travel Anxiety

  • Aggression

Pre-rescue Virtual / home session

During a pre-rescue session Kirsty will discuss with you the history of the dog you are proposing to adopt, your personal circumstances, including home environment.

She will advise you on the likely issues that you may face and how to overcome them. She will provide you with advice in relation to diet, exercise, how to bond, sleeping arrangements, boundaries, equipment, and toys.

This session will cost from £35 including a plan to follow.

outside one to one training session

During this session Kirsty will assess your new dog in an outside setting. Ideally this will have followed the pre rescue dog session, but if not, Kirsty will discuss all the issues with you prior to attending.

During the session Kirsty will provide you with an easy-to-follow plan to meet your dog’s training needs.

Session start from £20.
