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

Would your ideal dog be one that didn’t pull you when on a lead, was calm when meeting people and other dogs and came back when told. Help is at hand. I can help train you with your dog.

  • 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

I have one to one training for dog and owner for those local to us. I am able to accomodate dog and owner at our four star B&B or our self catering cottage where we can train together whilst you have a break from working. There is a dog only residential course which is booked for a minimum of two weeks although the residential courses for dogs can be carried over into a third or fourth week if required. Contact us today for a full rundown of both services and prices.
