Puppy Training

Meet Fiona, your expert dog trainer at The Dog Social. With over a decade of experience and a lifetime surrounded by dogs, Fiona brings a wealth of knowledge and a holistic approach to dog training. When you book Puppy School or any other training service with us, Fiona will be there from day one to ensure you receive personalised, high-quality training that fits your unique needs.

Growing up as the only child of a successful dog breeder, Fiona was destined to work with dogs.

Her early life, surrounded by puppies and immersed in the world of dog breeding, provided her with an intrinsic understanding of dog behavior and training needs. Fiona founded Dog On It 12 years ago with a vision to create a holistic, personalized approach to dog training and puppy school. She focuses on understanding the individuality of each dog and owner, tailoring her methods to fit perfectly into your family environment.

Personalised sessions addressing such as aggression, anxiety, or basic manners.

A comprehensive start for your puppy covering basic commands, socialization, and early obedience.

Fiona’s training methods are based on positive reinforcement, ensuring that dogs learn through encouragement and reward rather than fear or punishment. This approach fosters a strong bond between you and your dog, based on mutual respect and understanding. Fiona is committed to teaching owners how to effectively communicate with their pets, emphasizing that consistency and patience are key to successful training.

How many sessions will my puppy need?

The number of sessions your puppy will need can vary based on their individual learning pace and specific training goals. Typically, a basic training program consists of several sessions over a few weeks. Our trainers will assess your puppy’s progress and recommend the appropriate number of sessions for optimal results.

Do you offer private or group training sessions?

We offer both private and group training sessions. Private sessions provide personalised attention and can be tailored to address specific issues, while group sessions offer a great opportunity for socialisation and learning in a dynamic environment. You can choose the format that best suits your puppy's needs and your preferences.

Can older dogs also benefit from your training programs?

Yes, older dogs can definitely benefit from our training programs. While early training is ideal, it’s never too late to teach new behaviours and improve existing ones. Our trainers are experienced in working with dogs of all ages and can customise the training to meet the needs of older dogs.

What should I bring to the training sessions?

For each training session, please bring your puppy’s favourite treats, a leash, and a collar or harness. It’s also helpful to bring any toys your puppy loves. Ensure your puppy has had some exercise before the session but isn’t overly tired.

What if my puppy doesn’t respond well to the training?

If your puppy doesn’t respond well to the training initially, don’t worry. Every puppy learns at their own pace. Our trainers are skilled in adapting techniques to suit different learning styles and will work with you to find the most effective methods. Consistency and patience are key, and we’ll provide guidance on how to continue training at home

Are the training sessions conducted indoors or outdoors?

Our training sessions can be conducted both indoors and outdoors, depending on the weather and the specific training goals. We aim to provide a comfortable and distraction-free environment for your puppy to learn effectively.

Are there any prerequisites for enrolling my puppy in the training program?

To enrol your puppy in our training program, your puppy should be up-to-date on vaccinations and in good health. We recommend starting training as early as possible to take advantage of the critical learning period in a puppy’s development.

What kind of results can I expect after completing the training program?

After completing our training program, you can expect your puppy to have a solid foundation in basic obedience commands, improved socialisation skills, and better overall behaviour. Our goal is to help your puppy become a well-mannered and confident member of your family. We also provide ongoing support to ensure continued success.
