  • The right foundations

    Would you like to receive guidance and support to train your new puppy to be a well-mannered and happy dog that you can enjoy walks with?

    Tap into my knowledge and expertise in one-to-one sessions as I share the skills you need to raise a well-rounded, confident puppy and help you navigate your way through the first weeks and months of your puppy’s life.

    Personalised Plan

    My puppy sessions focus on your training goals through fun reward-based games and exercises taking into consideration your lifestyle, requirements and breed's needs.

     In general, we cover topics including: 

    • Building focus, connection and impulse control.

    • Key skills such as walking nicely on a lead, recall and whistle training.

    • I also have specialist knowledge of introducing elements of Dog Sports training in a safe and fun way such as Agility, Pet Gundog Training and tracking that can build confidence and enrich your puppy's life.

    How Individual Training Sessions Work

     Step 1: Initial Consultation

     Step 2: Regular Sessions

     First, unless we have met before, you book an initial consultation. 
    The onboarding form asks a few more questions so that I can gather some information, to make a plan of how I can best help you before we meet in person.

    FAQ: Why be supported by an individually tailored puppy 121 instead of a puppy course? 

    When you enrol on traditional puppy courses you are committing to a fixed block of classes and will be limited by a generalised programme; in contrast 121s fit around you, your schedule, and individual requirements.

    I often meet owners, particularly those with working breeds, who previously struggled to succeed in large indoor groups conducted for a long duration of time or failed to apply the lessons outdoors when faced with real-world distractions.

    All our training is conducted outdoors, in realistic environments, and broken down into manageable, bite-size steps, with plenty to practise in between. 

    With my coaching, you have a trainer in your pocket to have any questions answered, hassle-free via ongoing email support.

    IMDT qualified trainer stamp

    By working with a professional accredited by an externally verified body like The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) you can be assured that their training is up to date, science-based training methods that are proven to be effective and that have your dog’s welfare at heart because members of such organisations are assessed and have ongoing checks.

    ADWs Emma obtained a distinction in her IMDT membership exams by demonstrating practical skill and theoretical knowledge; continued learning and development is an annual requirement to maintain this status, so Emma’s experience is ever expanded through courses and qualifications.

    Unfortunately, the dog training industry is unregulated, making it difficult to place the same level of trust in all trainers. For example, puppy socialisation done wrong, or harsh methods used can cause problems and upset for pets and their parents. Therefore, we would encourage you to check a trainer's accreditation with a professional organisation before working with them, as many trainers self-accredit without any external validation.

    Brilliant introduction to outdoor agility

    Our spaniel puppy has a lot of energy and enthusiasm but is easily distracted. Emma was great at working with her in one-to-one sessions in the lovely outdoor setting to keep her busily engaged and coming back for more. We're looking forward to our group course next month when she's old enough

    Flat coat retriever ( Biff) agility training

    Biff is now 15 months old and we started agility in April this year joining the beginner course and now members of the club . Both of us were new to agility and Emma was so encouraging and supportive especially when things didn’t go to plan . Biff is a very active dog needing to be kept busy and agility is perfect for this . We had a 1:1 today and Emma has given us a number of pointers and homework ready for next session . Emma is not only very knowledgeable but also clearly passionate about her dog training and I would recommend her with 5⭐️

    5 star fun!

    I wanted to try agility with my 2 year old Labrador to see if she would enjoy it, but I also wanted some advice on reducing her nervousness around other dogs. I booked a private session and left buzzing! My dog had so much fun (as did I) going over jumps and through tunnels (the dog, not me). I also left with new insights into why some dogs seem to take an instant dislike to her and how to help her become less anxious. I'm now booked in the agility foundation course and really looking forward to it.

    Happy little street dog

    Myself and my Romanian rescue Maggie had our second one to one agility session with Emma last Thursday. Maggie has high anxiety and struggles with people she doesn't know. Emma is so amazing with her and it instantly puts her at ease!
    It's been a while since her first session but I was so impressed with how much she remembered. She's very unsure of confined spaces, so her biggest achievement was the tunnel with a turn! By the end it wasn't a concern to her at all.
    She was still on such a high after her session that when when we got home she kept running around the house with her ball (she rarely plays with toys only when she's super happy) and then slept all night long!
    We will definitely be back to keep improving her confidence. Thanks so much Anglian Dog Works!!
