about Us

 

'Lady & the Hound' is a tailored Canine Care and Coaching service providing puppy classes and private 1-2-1 dog training, dog day care and dog recreation.

Founded by Imogen Haley after she became a dog owner herself, the business aims to help owners raise and coach their dogs to become well adjusted pets in an environment which feels safe and friendly to both dog and owner. We believe it is important for us to work in partnership with you and your dog in a kind and constructive way and to achieve this we use only 'reward based training' methods.

Imogen lives in Walton-on-Thames with her dog Albert and is a certified trainer with Puppy School UK. The business is fully insured and an accredited member of the 'National Association of Registered Pet Sitters' (NarpsUK).

'Lady & the Hound' is based in Surrey, covering all areas as well as SW London postcodes. Our Puppy School courses are currently run in TW1, TW2, TW10, TW11 and TW12.

Private puppy training

£200.00 for 4 week course

We are able to provide private 1:1 training for owners and their dogs who feel that group classes might not be for them. Or perhaps your puppy has just missed our 20 week maximum age limit for classes?

Our 1:1 sessions are tailored to the needs of you and your puppy and we cover exactly the same training as we do in our Puppy School classes, but over a more intensive period of 4 weeks. Our methods are ‘reward based’ and we train in a positive way which makes learning fun - and hence far more achievable for your puppy.

The whole family is encouraged to take part in these sessions and we are happy for friends to join in too - just let us know before each session who to expect at training so we can plan for this.

We come to your home and can train in local areas such as your favourite park or walking area.

Please enquire about our private puppy training programmes or ad-hoc sessions by clicking the ‘Contact Us’ button below.

Private Training

£50.00 per 1 hour session

Private 1-2-1 training can be booked by the hour or as multiple sessions. If we have not met you and your dog before, we can come to your home for an initial consultation and from here we are able to recommend a tailored training schedule to suit the individual needs of your dog.*

Once we’ve assessed your dog, we will tailor an individual training programme to their needs and work alongside you to help achieve these goals.

The types of training and behavioural areas we can help with privately include:

  • Follow on training (post puppy school)

  • Heelwork (walking nicely on lead)

  • Recall

  • Separation anxiety

  • Reactivity (barking and lunging when on lead)

  • Desensitisation training (overcoming fears)

  • Clicker training

  • Interactive play techniques to help cement learning

  • And more!

*If we feel it appropriate after our initial consultation, we may also refer you to one of our specialist behavioural trainers, with whom we work alongside with when required.
