I am a qualified reward based dog trainer offering highly recommended classes in Bramfiel (near Hertford), Harlow, Hunsdon (near Ware) and Watton-at-Stone. I also offer extremely popular in-home training across West Essex and East Hertfordshire.

In-Home Dog Training

across West Essex and East Hertfordshire

Busy lifestyle juggling many things and finding it hard to commit to classes each week?  Feel more comfortable in your own home rather than in a group class situation?  Mobility or transport issues making it difficult to get to classes?  No problem!  I can come to you.

Using reward based training techniques with an understanding and adaptable way of teaching, I offer a range of package options suited to you and your puppy or adult dog.

Puppy Life Skills Coaching Package

The in-home Puppy Life Skills Course is where I coach you to train your puppy at home and can start even before your puppy arrives.  Held across 5 sessions (1 hour in length each) and costing £250 (saving £50 compared to booking 5 slots individually), you receive a *FREE* copy of the Life Skills for Puppies book, a comprehensive set of handouts, personalised and tailored session recaps and lots of puppy goodies too.  Sessions can be fitted in to slot around your commitments.

Do you have specific problems your dog needs help with? 

Pulling on the lead?

I can help you teach your dog to walk nicely without pulling you down the street to the park.  Start with an initial hour consultation of £60 to begin implementing reward based methods to teach your dog to walk nicely beside you.  Then you can book packages in triplicate if you wish which then gains you a £30 total discount across the 3 sessions.

Not coming back when called? 

I can help you to teach your dog to enjoy running back to you when you’re out on a walk.  Start with an initial hour consultation of £60 to begin implementing reward based methods to teach your dog to come back when called.  Then you can choose if you’d like to book a triple session package which gives you a £30 total discount.

“Our course with Louise gave Fidget and I a big start in the use of reward based training. The location is perfect – lots of real life distractions to be coped with during the session, which makes park life much easier to handle on morning walks…..The homework is great fun – the balls in the muffin tray game is a particular favourite. Thanks to Louise from Fidget and me!!”
