Train your dog online!
We are offering online dog training workshops. These will be interactive and allow you to still train your puppy without the need of putting yourselves at risk. Although anyone can use these sessions I am aiming them at the residents of Dorset. This is because once we are back to normal then we can work 1:1 to bring all the online training you have done together. Therefore if you live locally to Wimborne, Poole and Wareham then this setup will be ideal for you.
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to sweep across the country, the UK government is implementing necessary social restrictions to try and combat the spread of the coronavirus. However whilst there can be no questioning that these restrictions on our movement are needed, it has meant that pet owners are unable to begin, or complete, any training sessions with their dogs.
That is why here at Muttley Solutions, I have decided to bring the training direct to your home… virtually! For anyone who has worked with me before, they will know that online training is not an entirely new offering; I have often held initial online sessions for dog owners across Poole, Wimborne and Dorset. Before beginning any one-to-one dog training sessions, I like to have an in-depth discussion with the owners so I can understand their needs and any problems that they might be facing with their pet.
Getting a new puppy is a wonderful experience, but to ensure that you have a loving and truly family-friendly companion it is important that they undergo puppy training as soon as possible. That is why during these difficult times I am launching my online training sessions for puppies and dogs, allowing you to train your canine friend from the comfort of your own home.
If you are finding that your dog is:
- Ignoring you when you call their name
- Pulling you when you are out for a walk
- Constantly demanding attention
- Barking at anything and everything
Then my sessions will be able to help you to change their behaviour and improve their obedience. Open to all residents living in the Poole, Dorset or Wimborne areas these new online sessions will help me to understand your requirements. We will be able to put in the basic foundations for learning so that when we get back to normal you will be up and running
One to one online puppy and dog workshops
When it comes to dog training, there is no one size fits all approach, each dog is different and requires an array of techniques and practices to ensure that they are able to learn in an environment most suited to them. During these one-to-one online training sessions, we will be able to discuss the problems that you might be facing, discuss the various aspects of your dog’s behaviour and establish what we can do together to correct it.
I am a fully qualified dog trainer based in Wimborne and since over the years I have been able to help hundreds of pet owners enjoy a stronger connection with their pet. We are certainly living in an unprecedented time, however the COVID-19 outbreak should not be the reason that you are not able to enjoy an unrivalled bond with your new puppy. I specialise in Pet gun dog breeds so if you have a Springer driving you nuts or a Labrador who is challenging you then these classes will help.
Available at any time and any day of the weekend, these one-to-one online training sessions will help you to take the first steps to a better behaved dog. These open discussions will look at your puppy’s behaviour and together, we will be able to come up with a structured plan that you can begin to implement.
As the saying goes, a dog is a man’s best friend so do not let the Coronavirus prevent you from building a strong and trusting relationship with your new puppy. Get in touch today and let’s start this journey together!

What equipment will I need for online dog training workshops?
Most people will already have what is required: You will need a computer, Ipad or phone with an internet connection. You will need a webcam, which most devices already have. You will need to register and download the Zoom app which is the platform I use. I will send out invites for training sessions. My plan is to do the free classes early morning at about 08:30 as the internet is already struggling!! I will post these sessions to my Facebook page so you can catch up if you could not make the sessions. Please contact me if your interested in this service.
My style of dog training is I train the owner not the dog. When you can get it right the dog stands a chance of getting it right. Therefore the dog does not need to be involved with the online session.
I will talk to you so you understand what you need to do and why. Once we understand about the dogs we own then we are better placed to train them. I will show you training video examples during the session so you can see practical examples. I like to get clients to film their training sessions and send them to me via email so I can review before the next session.
If you have access to the internet, a computer, laptop, ipad or a phone with a webcam you have all you need. You will need to register with Zoom which is the platform I use to hold the sessions.
Any session you purchase will be a 1:1 session. I do offer group sessions, but this is for clients I have already worked with.
