The ultimate puppy programme.
The first few weeks of your puppy's life are critical for ensuring that they grow to be a well-rounded, confident and happy adult dog.
Conflicting advice on the internet, and from friends and family, can make navigating this critical period feel overwhelming. So getting a qualified Behaviourist on board to help at every step is the sure-fire way to hit every milestone with confidence.
Please note that there is a waiting list for in person training. If you are bringing a puppy home in the near future please get in touch.
Puppies are little sponges, eager to learn and investigate from day one.
A lot of literature focusses on basic obedience training for puppies which, although useful, is not as much of a priority as teaching them to cope alone. This life skill is arguably the most important thing to learn, so we should begin helping them to from the get go.
A good night's sleep is also essential for your pup's growth, mood, and for your sanity - a must have when raising a puppy!

About your programme...
Training dogs never needs to involve 'dominating' or punishment of any kind. Puppies don't know right from wrong, and it is up to us to teach them in as kind a way as possible how we would like them to behave using positive reinforcement techniques.
The puppy training programme targets every milestone including a plan for EVERY DAY of their first 7 days at home.
What we cover:
- Coping alone and separation anxiety prevention
- Crate training and night time
- Enrichment and play
- Sit, down and go to your mat
- Lead walking
- Mouthing and chewing
Schedule your free 20 minute Discovery Call so that we can get to know each other.
This also gives you the chance to have any queries answered and to make sure that you and your pup want to work with me.
Book your first session where we will cover everything you need to know to get your puppy through the tricky first week.
This can be via Zoom or in person for clients in the Ribble Valley.
Your first week's daily step-by-step plan will be sent that same day.
Weekday text support and video analysis is available and encouraged throughout the programme.
Weekly one hour follow up sessions are scheduled to enable us to practice the exercises together.
Handouts with step-by-step instructions on each exercise are sent after the session.

"Puppy training for my 9 week old pup with Rachael was fantastic"
I would certainly recommend it for any new puppy owners. She was able to provide some really great advice and within just the first hour was able to cover a number of different topics which he responded so well to.
Having felt a lot of worry since we picked him up about whether we were doing things right, Rachael was able to provide a lot of comfort and encouragement and also suggested a number of tweaks to how we were currently doing things to help us keep him settled and happy. I am having a peaceful evening now with a very tired little pup! Thank you so much.
