How does the puppy course work?

Jo Hinds works with you and your puppy, via video sessions or in your own home and outside in your local area, where you will be regularly socialising and exercising your puppy, this is where you will need the help the most. Even on virtual session Jo Hinds provides you all the advice you need to ensure your puppy is successful in socialising with other dogs and people and copes with everything the outside world throws at them. There are specific subjects that the course covers detailed below having a puppy is not just about training, understanding body language and behaviour is vital for having a calm but confident puppy and to prevent behavior problems occuring in the future. The sessions on the course are spread out every 2-3 weeks so she can support you as your puppy grows through different developmental stages and so it gives you time to work on the training.

Can this really be carried out by Telephone or Video?

This solution works really well, I can advise and train everything that I would in person, benefits from this kind of session is that some puppies act differently when visitors are there, therefore remotely observing your puppies behaviour allows me to really see what is going on and guide you visually on what steps to put in place. This service has been set up for everyone that needs help no matter where you are based UK or abroad. I can provide advice using different media: Telephone, Whatsapp, FaceTime, Skype, Zoom and more. I am flexible with technology and can use whatever method best suits you.  This facility also can offer cost savings due to removing the need for time for my travel to you.
