Training & Behaviour

We are now offering 1-2-1 consultations for your dogs as well as group classes for all abilities. Abby has qualified as a positive reinforcement, force free trainer with the IMDT and is ready to help you with all your training and behavioural queries.

Online classes are also available if you are located further afield and would struggle to make face to face classes.

1-2-1 Sessions

Abby can do 1-2-1 sessions, either in your home, out and about or online, depending upon you and your dog’s needs. These are based on an hourly rate, but will last as long as you and your pooch need. Follow up sessions can be arranged if necessary, depending on what you are working on.

All sessions include a follow up email or letter so you have what you have worked on written down for you. Abby is also available via phone, text and email should you need ongoing support.

1-2-1 Session (per hour) £30

Note. There is an additional fuel charge of £10.00 if over 8 miles from Pocklington. There may be further fuel charges if further away.

Group Classes

Group classes are for a maximum of six dogs and located at Hayton Village Hall.We also have a small indoor area should the weather be really horrid! Classes are an hour long and we have different levels and age groups to suit all abilities. The main aim of the classes is to have FUN and build the relationship between owner and dog, whilst learning new skills. Online classes are also available.

Classes are booked in blocks of six weeks. A non-refundable deposit of £10 is taken to secure your space for classes. You are more than welcome to come and watch a session or two before deciding to book.


For dogs under 1 year of age

Classes for dogs under 1 year of age with little formal training. We will work on how to train your young dog, basic commands, doggy manners and life skills as well as an introduction to basic scenting and agility games.

Classes for dogs under 1 year of age, who have completed Junior Bronze or who have done some training already. We will work on more advanced commands and life skills, linking skills, more scenting and agility and learning how to shape fun tricks and behaviours.

For dogs over 1 year of age

Similar to Junior Bronze but for dogs over 1 year of age who have had little training, or need to go back to basics.

Adding on from Junior Silver, we advance and link basic commands and life skills, have fun with shaping tricks and behaviours, explore scentwork and basic agility.

For those that have a solid training or relationship base with their owners or have completed the bronze and silver levels, we link skills, work at a distance, challenge scenting and link agility skills and test behaviours in highly distracting environments. Fun and challenging for dogs and owners!
