Do you wish your dog would listen to you?

Does your dog listen indoors, but ignores you outside?

Are you tired at telling your dog off when guests arrive?

Find out the solution in one of our Peak Performers Packages

 

You needn't worry anymore, because on all of our walks we teach alternatives to all of these behaviours!

If you're just looking for a dog walker, then we are most definitely not the company for you, we pride ourselves on offering much more than the average and implement reward based training on every single walk that we do.

We 100% believe in the power of mental stimulation and dogs needing much more than just physical exercise. This is super important because otherwise dogs become bored and when they become bored.... bad things happen!

  • Chewing the furniture
  • Digging the garden up
  • Barking at everything and nothing.
  • Running at 100mph around the house
  • Biting your legs
  • Chasing anything that moves
What does mental stimulation actually mean?
Whenever i mention the words ''mental stimulation'' people often stare at me with a blank expression. They've never heard of it and quite frankly they don't seem terribly interested in it either, but they really should be interested, because not only is it so important for your dogs well being, it is often the missing piece of the puzzle to a dog owners troubles with their companion.
Simply put, it is about keeping the brain active and working and is an important aspect of keeping our dogs healthy too. Did you know that working their brain will tire them out more than a game of fetch? Good for you to know, especially if you have a dog that may not be as physically able as they used to be, unfavourable weather keeps dogs of all ages indoors more or you have a puppy that can't be walked far due to their age yet.
Keeping your dog physically exercised and in shape is somewhat of an important part of dog ownership, but it really isn't as important as the mental stimulation side. People often think that if they have a problem dog, that the cure is to walk and walk and walk its furry legs off... but what if all of that walking (sights, sounds, scents) is just adding more chaos to an already chaotic mind? For sure, they will appear tired for all of an hour or two, but are you inadvertently creating a more active mind instead of a settled one?

If you're still reading this, then i imagine you want to know more about the walking packages that are on offer.

With our variety of times, you're sure to find something to suit your individual dogs needs.

We understand that they can't all manage a full hour, therefore we have a various options available. Each option has a brief description below and if you would like your dog to become a Peak Performer, then all you have to do is email us for the full PDF of our services and prices.


THE MINI: 15 / 30 minute options

Our Mini training package is ideal for your puppies or those older dogs, who can not quite manage the longer walks that we offer, on this package we will cover the following:

Patience at the door (Sit) Prevents over excitement and calmness

Focus : Teaches dogs to stay focused on the handler instead of everything else around.

Find it: Implementing scent games and using a dogs natural scavenging instincts to find             the treats or toys in which we have hidden.

Send to Bed : Teaches dogs to go to bed when we return and on the first cue.

 

BRONZE: 30 / 45 / 60 minute options

Perfect for the over excitable dog who love to jump up!

Patience: Promotes calmness before heading outside (Sit at door)

Focus: Teaches dogs to focus on their handler instead of other distractions.

No Jumping!: Teaches dogs to keep those paws on the floor when we enter and not

to jump up when they greet people outside.

Go to Bed Teach the dogs to go to bed without us having to ask them.

 

SILVER: 45 / 60 minute options

Perfect for the lead pullers and dogs who love to have their heads on the floor. Don’t

underestimate the power of Tracking, because the dogs absolutely love it!

 

Focus: Teaches dogs to focus on their handler instead of other distractions.

Loose Lead Walking: Teaches dog to walk nicely on a lead.

Stop! Useful for approaching the roadside

Tracking: This is a scent game in which the dog follows a carefully laid track on the

ground made by the handler. Tracking is an excellent form of confidence building

and also an incredibly fun activity to the dogs. Your dog will perform no more than

two tracks on their walks, due to the intensity of this activity. Dogs can progress to

follow harder to follow tracks as they progress.




GOLD: 60 minutes only

Perfect for dogs who have a tendency to run off!

Focus: Teaches dogs to focus on their handler instead of other distractions. We

progress to working in much higher level, distraction filled environments.

Leave that: Got a dog that scoffs everything that they can find? We will train your

dog to leave things when asked.

Recall: Your dog needs to be on a suitable harness for this activity as we will be

working on a long line. Dogs will eventually progress to being off the lead, but only

when we are certain that they're ready. Taught via a whistle.

 

All of our walks are on a one-to-one basis and on lead.
