Dog Training

Our philosophy is to provide you and your dog with the correct training so that you enjoy owning your dog and to make the time that you spend with each other both rewarding and relaxing.

We also provide the following services

Puppy Training

1:1 Training Session

This is a 1hr, face to face dog training session with one of our trainers and is completely tailored to your needs. These sessions are ideal for helping with issues such as recall, heel work, lead training and basic obedience.

We do have a diverse team of fully trained ‘Demo Dogs’ that we are able to incorporate into sessions for demonstrations or those all important distractions.

The cost of this session is £60/1hr.

If you have multiple issues then you will need to book multiple sessions and there is a discount for doing so.

If you have multiple issues, then we advise booking 3 sessions, 2 weeks apart and we can plan your training regime and give feedback on your progress in subsequent sessions.

These sessions are held at our training facility on Moor Lane, Wilmslow. We do recommend just one handler as we do believe that this works better and we want you to get the most out of the session. We do allow observers at a distance that doesn’t distract the session.

To book a session or multiple sessions then please contact us via email at admin@damianriley.com
