Puppy Pet Gundog Training at Upton and Purbeck Dog Park

Now booking for 5th February

If you have a Pet Gundog breed, a crossbreed, where both parents were a gundog breed and your puppy is between 12-18 weeks at the start of the course then this will head you in the right direction to understanding and training this fun breed of dogs. If you have a puppy who will be a working dog then this can be the first step to getting that obedience before you move to a specalised on the game trainer.

You will commence training indoors at Upton Community centre to get the basics in place. Depending on the progress we will then continue the last two sessions at our Pet gundog training facility (weather dependent). This is outdoor training in a live environment, the sort of place you will be walking your dog!! It is £95 for the 6 session course. By signing up for the course you agree to attend the Purbeck Training Facility near Corfe Castle.


Recall Training Intensive Course

One of the most common and potentially problematic training issues. My definition of a good recall is the dog will come back to you on first asking when it doesn’t want to. It is not good for the dog to come back when it wants to and ignore you when there are distractions.

The Dorset Recall Training School offers a 45-minute Zoom session to discuss the theory behind Recall issues. Two 45 minute training sessions at my Merley facility or Purbeck facility, depending on your location. A one-hour session at your location within a 10 miles radius of Wimborne. This intensive training package where we take every aspect of the recall apart. One of the sessions is held in locations where you usually walk your dog, so I can understand the specific issues you may have. The cost is £200. Please get in touch with me for more information. Discount if further sessions are required.

What does dog training cost with Muttley Solutions?

Dog Training The Right Way is both affordable and convenient. We offer flexible one to one training both online and in our training field. We also offer a 6-week group puppy class training at our Hall in Upton, Poole, with the sole aim of preparing you to get your dog out into the real world safely. Muttley Solutions also offers Canine scent training within the Dorset area.

We are one of the most competitive on pricing for one to one training in the area, but the quality is not compromised.  I am so confident of the service I offer that I will refund your first session if you decide my teaching style is not for you. If you have your first session and don’t want to continue, just ask for a refund, and I will be happy to oblige. I want you to be happy regardless of if you work with me or not. 

High level of support given

Classes will be on a one to one basis which will be specific to you, your dog and your pace. No set weekly classes. We train together when you need support or to move forward. You get free email support whilst you are training with me. How many other trainers offer that level of support away from the class training environment?

This level of support can sometimes save us having a session to resolve the problem on the phone. Some clients will send a video so I can review and advise. The client often needs that support as dog training is like a roller coaster with good and bad days. If you are trying to train a new puppy with young children, this can be stressful this can be a stressful time.

Why is puppy and dog training expensive?

Most people will have invested a lot of money into buying their puppy, but not considered dog training prices. You should factor the cost of training into owning a dog. The reality is by investing in the right training at the start you can hopefully avoid large behaviourist bills later. The right trainer will have invested a significant amount of money to ensure they have the right training. Remember you usually get what you pay for so look at training as an investment so you can enjoy your time with your new dog.

Can I train my own dog?

Many people try to train their own dog, only a few succeed. Training your dog to save money is a false economy in the long run. Get a qualified trainer, agree on a plan and put the practice in. I always say I train the owner, not the dog. That is why you will struggle to train your dog. The issue is not with the dog it is the owner!!
