This is a 6 week course, if you decide that you would like to continue onto one of our future classes then you will have the opportunity to reserve your space.

Does your dog have behavioural problems?

Merry Dogs provides a 1 to 1 training session with you and your dog in your home where your dog is comfortable, then building on each session going at a pace to suit you and your dog. Reece will show you how to use positive reinforcement, adapting the training around the individual dog to achieve the desired behaviour and will help you to understand the cause of unwanted behaviours and show you how to resolve any issues. To find out more please use our contact form or call or email us. Contact details are below.

I would like to thank Reece for a very useful training session. Our dog Huey was really responsive to the things that we were shown and Reece has a real calming manner, which is a major factor in the training. Thank you Dave Linda & Huey.
