I offer training on a one on one basis. Lessons usually start in your own home before moving out to “the real world”. The sessions can be booked in a quite flexible manner to work alongside your schedule and how quickly your dog learns. I am happy, in fact encourage, the whole family to join in. An example of areas of training I specialise in and that you maybe experiencing problems with are recall, pulling on the lead, jumping up, begging at the dinner table, stealing food from the counter top etc. Training if there are NO behavioural issues is £75.00 for an initial assessment and consultation which includes a training plan and lasts up to 90 minutes and then follow ups are charged £40.00 per hour after that.
Behaviour work includes but is not limited to separation anxiety, generalised anxiety, reactivity, lunging on the lead, aggression, destruction in the home including chewing & digging, prey drive & chasing, barking at visitors and delivery persons, resource guarding of food, toys etc. Inappropriate urination and defecation in the home, excessive barking. An Initial Behavioural Assessment & Consultation is £175.00, which includes a behaviour modification plan, then £60.00 per hour session after that. If you live outside of Bournemouth there is also an additional £0.45p per mile travel charge.

Currently this is principally open to existing clients who are working with me on training or behavioural needs. I occasionally have room to add another dog to a group so it is always worth asking if I can help.

If appropriate they can be walked solo or with other members of my group walks. The cost of this service is £15.00 for a one-hour walk/exercise session with each additional dog from the same household is £12.50.
TTouch uses a combination of specific touches, lifts, and movement exercises, helping to release tension and increase body awareness. The intent of the TTouch is to activate the function of the cells and awaken cellular intelligence - a little like “turning on the electric lights of the body.” It also helps establish a deeper connection between humans and animals through increased understanding and more effective communication. An initial session costs £75.00 and following sessions are £40.00. If you live outside of Bournemouth a mileage charge will also apply of 0.45p per mile

Mabel, a wire haired dachshund, can be nervous around other dogs and came to stay for a week. During her stay we worked on her reactivity with positive reinforcement and socialisation. I also kept her busy with enrichment and stimulation toys and long walks around beautiful Bournemouth and the nearby New Forest. So whether I have a furry friend for a day or a week I will ensure their stay is a busy, happy one.
“Karen can spot what's wrong with a dog, mentally or physically, as if it's telepathic. She has used TTouch to help with anxiety and stomach problems too. She absolutely adores dogs and is absolutely brilliant with them.” Nicky Ruggier
