Benefits of In-Home/Outdoor Private Sessions:

There are many benefits to private instruction which is offered in your own home or on Hampstead Heath

There are many benefits to private sessions, which include:

  • Sessions are structured to suit the individual needs of you and your dog
  • Appointments can be made to fit in around your schedule
  • Dedicated one on one problem solving
  • Both you and your dog learn at your own pace
  • Some dogs are not suited to group situations due to fear, hyperactivity, aggression etc
  • Ideal for dogs with behavioural issues such as Separation Anxiety, House-Soiling, Resource Guarding etc that are beyond the scope of a general curriculum
  • Ideal if you are uncomfortable about participating in a group environment
  • Your dog can concentrate on learning in an environment he/she is comfortable in, where there are fewer distractions
  • If your dog is uncomfortable in a group situation he will be unable to concentrate and therefore will not learn
  • Ideal if you want to speed up the learning process in your dog. Many people begin with private sessions and enrol in group sessions shortly thereafter.

Learning should be fun for both you and your dog so Tip Top Dog School uses only Positive Reinforcement Methods. Using rewards is an effective and easy to follow technique based on the sound scientific principles of learning theory. Your dog will learn in a positive, nurturing environment.
