Behavioural training for your dog


Whether you have a new puppy that you need guidance with or an older dog that needs trained to be safe around livestock, I run residential courses with a very high success rate. These courses are tailored to the individual dog owner’s needs, and the needs of your dog.


Our three-day and five day, owner and dog training courses at our four star rated accommodation, Airds Farm B&B, has been both very popular and very successful.
Our farmhouse bed and breakfast is dog-friendly, and our newly built insulated kennels can accommodate eight dogs, four of which will be our own. This helps with your dogs socialisation. I have tailor made breaks with dog training included to suit most pockets.
Please note: Dog only residential training requires a minimum of two weeks.

General obedience training

Does your dog bark when you are not at home? Do you want a calm, happy dog? I also help dogs who need to learn basic obedience over fourteen days of training. I can train the dog in:

  • Basic commands – walking to heel on and off lead
  • Behaviour rehabilitation – snapping, biting, chewing, barking
  • Recall training to a whistle
  • Early puppy management
  • House training

Our residential courses for dogs and owners can be carried over into a third or fourth week if required. Contact us today.
