Training classes and 1 to 1 consultations with Dogs Trust at Action Petz

Rachel Kitson and Sara Leckie from Dog’s Trust Bridgend will be offering their dog training expertise here at Action Petz. If you are looking to train your dog or resolve a behaviour issue this service could make a difference to you and your dog’s life. 

SERVICES BEING OFFERED

Behavioural Services

Behavioural problems include issues that can not always be resolved by formal training; this means behaviourists look to eliminate issues that are not considered normal conduct in animals. In the canine world this translates into working toward eliminating fear, aggression and/or anxiety problems among others so your dog can lead a normal life. Given the fact that every dog’s life and circumstances are different, a behaviour consultation is always offered on a 1 to 1 basis; this allows our trainers to identify the root cause of the problem and offer you bespoke advice and support.

  • Duration: each session lasts 90 minutes.
  • Dates and times: every Wednesday (unless stated otherwise) from 11:00 AM until 3:30 PM.
  • Price: £55.00 per session.
  • Deposit: £10 deposit payable upon booking.
  • Bookings: please ring Action Petz Cardiff on 02920 493003 to secure your place. Remember we will require to take a £10 deposit.

Training Services

While behavioural services work by resolving your dog’s issue by identifying the root cause of the problem and creating tailored solutions, training normally works by encouraging an otherwise normal dog to learn desirable behaviours. A classical example of training would be recall training, or in other words: teaching your dog to come back to you when called. This kind of training works very well in a group setting, but at times it can prove challenging for the dog (too many doggy friends to play with!) or the owner (time commitments, shyness, etc.) that’s why we also offer 1 to 1 training services tailored to you and your dog’s needs.

  • Duration: each session lasts 60 minutes.
  • Dates and times: every Wednesday (unless stated otherwise) from 11:00 AM until 3:30 PM.
  • Price: £25.00 per session.
