PROFESSIONAL PUPPY TRAINING

If you’ve got a puppy on the way, it’s important to start considering your training options.

BUILD A RELATIONSHIP

While dog training for older dogs is extremely doable, it’s much easier if you get started when your dog is still a puppy. It’s important to build and establish a loving and respectful relationship between you and your dog from the outset – this will allow your dog to grow into a well behaved member of society! First time dog owner? Don’t worry! I understand that puppy training can be overwhelming, but I am here to help. I will lay the groundwork and offer specific training advice for you to maintain going forwards. I can also offer support and advice on dog behaviour – simply get in touch with me.

EXPERIENCED TRAINER

Thanks to my 30 years of industry experience, I am confident that there is no better place in Rochdale to send your dog than K9 Boot Camp. I offer 1 to 1 & group dog training and am fully insured and CRB checked.

This will be a joint effort – I offer the advice and get you started, but you will need to be committed to your puppy’s training even after our sessions have been completed. I can guarantee that this will be well worth your time, as your dog will grow up to be well mannered, obedient, and most importantly, loving.

I have worked with all breeds of dogs. For more information, just give me a call – 07545 025353.

Back to school

I booked in for five consecutive days with my rescue lurcher, Mickey. Andi was great and I very quickly realised why Mickey was behaving in a reactive way. Human error played a large part. Andi discussed every part of the training with me and provided explanations in relation to dog psychology. I quickly achieved my personal goal which was to be able to walk alongside another dog with Mickey and to be relaxed throughout the process. I thoroughly enjoyed my week and would recommend Andi to anyone. I’m so glad I invested in the training course.

Fantastic training !

We booked our dog Trixie for training. We thought she was reactive with dogs and kids and also had issues with lead manners.

Andi helped us understand that Trixy is defensive rather than reactive. We feel so much more connected to Trixy now and taking her a for a walk is a pleasure. She stopped pulling the lead and is following us wherever we go and even she can jump into a car on her own ! In exchange we protect her so she doesn’t become overwhelmed with dogs in her face.

Andi is fantastic and knowledgeable. We highly recommend her ! We booked in for 4 hours and it was definitely money very well spent !!!

Arthur

I booked a block of 4 lessons with Andi, as my Black Labrador, Arthur, had issues with reactivity.

Four lessons later, I can’t compliment Andi enough. We moved from the slip collar to the prong at the start of the second lesson and the difference was incredible. His attentiveness and overall confidence improved hugely, and the anxious reactivity I’d been so used to seeing disappeared almost instantly.

I have to admit, I was initially quite dubious about switching to the prong collar, but I’m so glad we did. Arthur seems to be much happier during our walks.

Puppy training

We contacted Andi after deciding to get a German shepherd puppy . She gave excellent advice over messages and we decided together to do the block of 4 sessions . We collected our pup at 7 weeks old so Andi came to our home for the first visit. Arlo (our pup) was very younge but Andi worked really well with us and him . Gave us lots of advice about raw food or kibble . Treats, toys, walks ,crate training etc etc. All great advice and has come in real handy for all of us to use . Arlo has just finished his 4th lesson and was walking lead free !!!! Andi is great with practical advice and simple things that really help. We will be booking Andi again for his teenage years in a few months time. Andi has helped my daughters confidence while handling arlo and helped there bond grow .

Greyhound X much less reactive!

We used Andi to help with our dog Ozzy’s reactive behaviour on the lead. He was really bad and would be really hard to control swinging on the lead. I would dread every walk with him and cause me a lot of anxiety. We have had a few sessions with Andi and he is a lot calmer. He is still slightly reactive so we have to be on guard but from what he was like, it is leaps and bounds but it is down to us now to continue with what we have learnt. I can now take him out with a lot less fear.

Ozzy had a few other issues too which Andi was always on hand with to help with any questions which was really valuable. He is a much calmer more well behaved dog all round and we will continue to use Andi’s advice and strategies.

Henry

Henry needed lots of training unable to walk him out during the day. Henry is very reactive to everything or should I say was. Andi taught us techniques and strategies that work for me as an owner and for Henry. Andi’s training has given us the ability to enjoy walks together without stress and worries. Would recommend to anyone who needs help with their pet.

Reactivity lesson

I went to k9 boot camp to help sort my German shepards reactivity to other dogs. After 5 minutes of observation from Andi we jumped straight into the lesson. Andi identified the issues straight away and recommended a slip lead. Within minutes my dog was following heel and made minimum attempts to go to other dogs. I did a one hour lesson and the difference was amazing.I would recommend k9 boot camp to anyone having issues. Very friendly. Very knowledgeable and I couldn’t thank her enough.
I will be continuing what I have been taught and know I will see an improvement.
Thanks again!!

A less reactive dog!!! Thank you

I completed the 5 day boot camp with Andi this week! My French bulldog Kylo was a nightmare to say the least prior to these sessions. He would pull on the lead and be constantly on the hunt for other dogs. Then on approach to other dogs he would let off the most horrific scream, it was not a nice walking experience at all.
Since completing the bootcamp with Andi I have noticed that Kylo has learnt lead manners and he’s able to pass other dogs with only a small noise, which I now know how to easily correct. Walking him is now a pleasurable experience as opposed to a stressful one.
I cannot thank Andi enough!! Her techniques involve a no nonsense approach, which is certainly what was needed with my dogs. This has not only increased the dogs confidence but mine aswell! Thank you so much, 5 star service

Transformation

I honestly can’t thank Andi enough. I was stressed and so was my dog. I found the dog walking experience a nightmare. It was causing me problems with my other dog, husband, family and the public. She was aggressive with people and dogs.
I contacted Andi and she put me at ease straight away. I booked 6 sessions. I very quickly found a difference in my dog and myself. Over the 6 sessions. My confidence grew and I was able to handle my dog. Change my way of dealing with situations and be calmer. My dog is now so happy and enjoying her walks. So am I. My husband has noticed the difference in me. We are now enjoying walking our dogs and looking forward to having friends and family to visit. Thanks Andi you are amazing

20 week old Billy Australian labradoodle

I was just starting to think we had took on more than we can chew with taking on a new puppy. I can’t thank Andi enough for her help and expertise in calming our excitable puppy and for laying down the foundations for us to follow in the future . I booked four lessons which covered basic obedience , lead walking and crate training . I would not hesitate in recommending Andi and indeed will call on her again for any recurring issues with Billy’s development. She definitely goes the extra mile in helping to build a positive relationship between pup and owner.

We had 4 lessons with

We had 4 lessons with Andi coming to the house as the main issue was our Rescue dog not allowing visitors to the house. He would bark and behave very aggressively when ever anyone came in who wasn`t a family member.
There was also an issue with feeding and guarding areas of the kitchen where food was prepared.
With Andi`s instruction and consistency in behaviour management from all the family there has been a vast improvement. We are more confident in managing the behaviour and guests can be there without the constant aggressive barking.
Thank you Andi!

Stephanie Clayton

Brilliant Dog Trainer

I contacted Andi to help us manage our dogs behaviours in the home.
We booked four sessions and absolutely learnt loads about how to manage our behaviours towards the dog aswell as correcting her behaviours.
Without Andi’s expertise I think we would still be managing her behaviours in the wrong way.
I couldn’t be more thankful and grateful it was money well spent to help us. And I would highly recommend her to anyone needing support with their dog.
Thanks again Andi

Basic training

I contacted Andi after another trainer pretty much said Bo was untrainable and didn’t seem interested.
Bo is a 16 month old rescue German Shepherd.At home and being alone with him he is a good calm boy however walking was a different story. He would lunge pull bark growl even howl when he seen other dogs. I contacted Andi discussed the situation and booked a course of 6 lessons.
The first lesson certainly he was his usual self seeing other dogs Andi taught me some techniques and gave me homework ect. As the lessons went on he was a pleasure to walk with infact sometimes you wouldn’t know he was with while you walked. Obviously there’s still work to be done and occasionally he still has his moments but it has become so much easier to walk him . Can’t thank Andi enough for her instruction and she is always available to answer questions you may have. Would highly recommend Andi for training and we will certainly continue on group walks and so on.

HM-57

Well what can I say our 10 month old GSD had serious reactivity issues and pulled like a steam train on his lead . Andi worked miracles even after the first session his lead pulling had almost stoppedfast forward 6x 1hr sessions we have a different boy , walks lovely on his lead with very little correction needed. We can also now walk past most dogs without any reaction and on the odd occasion he does show signs, a quick correction on his lead and he returns calm and walks past .
I would highly recommend Andi to anybody in need of help with there dog/s absolutely fantastic and so knowledgable about everything to do with dog training

OliviaM-198

I took my dog here for training on her reactivity with other dogs and we did the boot camp and let’s just say the results were amazing , could see a change within the first session I would 100% recommend as I feel like I have a brand new dog and it makes taking her for a walk so much easier and better for me and my dog !

HazelB-144

Andi was fantastic with our reactive german shepherd. She was friendly, so knowledgeable and really clear in her training methods, I especially liked how she trained me as the handler in a really constructive way and didn’t make me feel stupid when I got it wrong! Would 100% recommend! Thanks Andi!
