One-to-One Training

One-to-one training with Be Brilliant Dogs is a perfect way to work on your training needs!

One-to-one training

One-to-one training allows you to work on a specific skill with your dog in an in-depth way with personalised and specialised help.

One-to-one training can be held in your own home or on a walk with you and your dog.

Later in the year we hope to be able to offer one-to-one training at our very own location based just outside of Knighton. Watch this space!

If you are not based in mid-Wales, we can now run one-to-one dog training via video link! Find out more here.

What can one-to-one training help you and your dog with?

One-to-one training sessions can help with all of your dog training questions and challenges, including but not limited to…

  • Recall
  • Walking nicely on the lead
  • Puppy socialisation and settling in
  • Barking
  • Door manners
  • Food manners
  • Puppy toilet training
  • Puppy chewing or destructive behaviour

You may also want some one-to-one tips to prepare you and your dog for group classes. Sometimes group classes aren’t for every dog or every owner. It could be that your dog finds group classes too exciting, or that they can’t concentrate with so many distractions around. Or you might want to work on a specific skill so you need some targeted one-to-one lessons. For a variety of reasons, it might be that you would like to book a one-to-one session.

Be Brilliant Dogs offers one-to-one training to suit you and your dog, email Jen ( and we will be able to arrange a suitable time, place and training plan to suit you and your dog.

Aggressive, reactive, fearful Dogs

Is your dog aggressive or reactive to people or dogs? Perhaps your dog is fearful about new environments or lacks confidence? One-to-one training sessions are an opportunity for you to work with your dog in a controlled environment. One-to-one training also enables you to build a bond with your dog and to work on a plan which will ensure success for you both going forward.

I currently have availability for some reactive dog cases, get in touch to arrange.

I am also able to work with other dog professionals (your groomer, dog walker etc.) in your network or the local area to help you succeed with your dog.

On occasion, it might be more suitable to refer you to another dog professional. I am happy to help you find someone in Powys / Shropshire / Herefordshire or virtually who is able to help you and your dog. Get in touch to discuss your needs and we can take it from there!

We took delivery of Isla, a three month old black and white bearded collie in October last year and asked Jen to help us train her so that she would be a more responsive but fun member of our household. After 10 sessions Jen really helped us bond with our new dog, and understand how to make the most of having her in our home. Not only did we manage to successfully house train her over this period, but we were able to interact with her very successfully using simple techniques and training  which really helped us to understand our dog better. There is no doubt that Jen really helped us to make the most of this early period of Isla’s life and provide us with  really useful but simple instructions to keep both the dog and ourselves happy!”
