Below is a list of the key services we provide with a basic price.  We felt it vital for you to see how much you may be investing in your dog, if you employ our services.  We believe our prices to be fair and reasonable, but also when you consider the lifespan of the dog, and therefore the lifespan of the behaviours…we do believe it is an investment worth making.

If you would like a service which is not outlined below, please get in touch.   Similarly, if you have any further questions, send us a message using the Contact Us page, or the links/details at the bottom of the page.

Dog Sitting

This is a service provided in your own home and is aimed more specifically at dogs who may have particular needs/issues which make staying with a dog sitter or going in to kennels very difficult.  A behaviourist will stay with your pet in your home, to ensure your dog’s routine is maintained as much as possible.  A standard day may consist of a morning and evening walk of 1 hour, then toileting at lunch, mid afternoon and before bed, as well as play/cuddle time in the evening.  There are no issues we would refuse outright, so please contact us to discuss your dog’s particular needs.  Please note, we can not guarantee 24 hour company with your dog.

Price – £35 for the first night and £25 for additional nights.

Please note, if you wish specific behaviour training as well, this is at a cost of £20 per hour with a recommended 1 hour per day on top of the standard rate.
