Puppy Training

What an exciting time it is to look forward too, choosing and then bringing a new puppy home. But it is often an anti climax and we can soon realise that it isn't as rosy as we imagined.

SIT Dog Training is here to help you right from the start.

Free Advice to Help you decide which breed is for you. (Rescue or Puppy?) So many fail by making decisions from the heart and not the head. Underestimate the commitment and choose an unsuitable breed for their lifestyle because of looks not breed specific traits. Please help me to eradicate the need for adoption centres. Please ask Sue (travel costs may apply).

Getting it right from the start will set the foundation stone for a long and rewarding relationship.
Please see below the training offered by SIT Dog Training.
