Training & Support
Private 1-1 training is an ideal option if your dog is not yet ready for a group setting and you would both benefit from starting your training journey with fewer distractions; if you are waiting for the next group course to start; or if you would prefer a more flexible and tailored approach to training.
Private 1-1 training programmes allow us to identify the key skills your dog is lacking that is fuelling the unwanted behaviours so we can create a structured programme that teaches both you and your dog how to create new skills and habits instead.
Whether you are struggling with pulling on the lead, not coming back when called, chasing everything that moves, or running over to every dog they see, the most effective approach to overcoming the problem will be different for each dog.
There is no magic wand or quick fix in dog training, but private 1-1 training programmes allow the focus and flexibility needed to get you moving towards where you want to be much quicker with a bespoke approach.

Not sure which is the best option for you and your dog?
I have a working cocker spaniel which was about 8 months and absolutely hyper when I first introduced him to Liz. He hadn’t had much socialisation due to covid and walking on a leader was non existent. I initially attended for a puppy foundation course which was useful and following assessment agreed he needed 1/1 input.
Liz has been brilliant she has trained me as well as the dog, Liz explained every thing in easy to understand terms and allowed me the time I needed to practice. Liz was honest upfront and said it was not an easy job to do and would take a great deal of time and effort on my part. I emailed her when I was struggling and requested handouts and video clips which Liz provided straight away. I found them really useful. Nothing was a bother, Liz is a professional but her warmth, enthusiasm and genuine love of her role shines through. We have completed the course of 1/1 and Liz has equipped me and the dog with the skills and knowledge we need to hopefully become a brilliant team in the future with the dog walking at my side. She also has a great sense of humour, I would if needed go back to her without hesitation.

Liz is amazing. One of those rare both dog people and people, people. Our dog, Bear has been transformed. The sessions were fun and informative and it was always a pleasure to be in Liz’s company. My family and I, including the cat, will be forever grateful to her (and her Dora the Explorer Style backpack!)

Liz has been helping us with our crazy high energy, but lots of love to give Labrador pup, Sully. We completed 4 sessions focused on lead walking and think we all thoroughly enjoyed the process! Liz was very knowledgeable in terms of what we can expect from Sully at this stage and has equipped me with the skills to take his training forward. Liz is so friendly, made the sessions really fun and we’d love to join a DogScentric training club in the future. Would 100% recommend this service!
I have a 17 month old working cocker spaniel Archie who was proving to be very strong willed little pup. I contacted Liz after being recommended her by a friend and she did not disappoint. After 6 one to one sessions and change of diet I have a content little pooch who is better behaved and now we move on to the gun dog training club and we cannot wait. I cannot recommend Liz enough she is awesome.
