Bespoke coaching & training programmes for dog human partnerships, mainly for dogs with complex or longer term issues, personalised for both you and your dog

Introduction to Programmes
The bespoke personal coaching programmes are designed for dogs that may have longer term or more complex issues that a training package may not cover.

Programmes are available for puppies & dogs from 8 weeks, they are bespoke and will take into account your aspirations, abilities and previous experience. I will treat you and your dog as a partnership working with the dog as an individual taking into account their breed (or potential breeds) drive, motivation and physicality.

Over the years I have realised that dogs and their human partners are so individual that general obedience/skill group classes may not be the best environment for many dogs, therefore my programmes are ideal for these partnerships.

Every client and their dog has an assessment and goal setting consultation where we discuss your goals however small or ambitious and work out an achievable coaching plan. I cannot guarantee your will reach all your goals but I will be honest and will produce a programme that will head in the direction. Initial programmes are for two or three months and can be booked in further three month blocks after the initial programme is completed. There is also a 2 month programme specifically for puppies from the age of 8 weeks which includes a 4-week puppy partnership course via Zoom & at your home so we can start their programme during their key learning phase but without them having to finish their vaccinations first.

All programmes after the initial consultation will include two coaching sessions each month, there is ongoing WhatsApp support and a telephone call booked for the weeks when you do not have a physical session. Everyone who books on a programme will be invited to join a private Facebook for support & advice and the opportunity to share with others who are following or have completed a programme this group is free for the first three months.

If you would like to discuss your goals please contact me via to book a Discovery Call https://form.jotform.com/GillGallagher/call-back-request

Bespoke 2 & 3 Month Coaching Programmes for puppies, dogs and rescued dogs, individually tailored for you and your dog, specifically for long term or more complex issues

Ruby Puppy Programme

A coaching programme to give your puppy the best start in life. Many puppy classes focus on training your puppy to do smart things like sit, wait & walk on a lead. These are all valid things that dogs need to do (eventually) but they have a lifetime to learn these things. With this programme we cover the things they need to know such as confidence, bonding, meeting new things and people in the small window of time they have available which can be started as soon as your gorgeous pup is home & settled and can be completed before they are even allowed out into the big wide world.

Sapphire & Diamond Coaching Programmes

Two programmes to support your & your dog through any longer term or more complex issues you may have or to work towards a long term goal. These programmes are suitable for any dog from 6 months. Rescue & adolescent dogs benefit particularly from these programmes as we are able to re-build their confidence, and work through any issues that the fear and stress of these hormonal changes have been uncovered. During this time you may feel that your once lovely & loving puppy has turned into a bit of a monster and has forgotten many things they previously knew. This is usually not the case but with the hormones running wild this stage may need careful handling.

Helping you decide whether a coaching programme is the best way forward for you and your dog whatever age, breed or nationality.

Bespoke coaching programmes are individually tailored for each partnership and are suitable for first time puppy owners, existing or new dogs with longer term or more complex issues or rescued dog partnerships. Many of the programmes focus on bonding, relationship building (or re-building) & confidence on the part of the family and their dog with the end goal of the dog becoming a happy, well adjusted and well mannered member of the family.

A bespoke programme will suit a dog that has one of more behavioural issues or in the case of many overseas rescues an unknown history that will require a strategy over a few weeks, months and sometimes longer.

Therefore my bespoke programmes are a commitment of a minimum of 2 months & often longer personal coaching and support telephone and face to face at your home, my field between Clanfield & Hambledon, Hampshire or in suitable local environment for you dog

Bespoke programmes may not suit everyone as the processes I use focus on the dog wanting to behave in a certain way which can mean a slower (but longer lasting) progression than some other methods that promote a "quick fix".

To ensure you are happy that I am the right fit for your needs and requirements, there are certain steps that I follow which are:
  • A 15 minute "Discovery Call" that can be booked below. The call will enable us to talk about the Issues as you see them & how would be best to proceed. l am unable to discuss individual issues during this call as all dogs & your situation are different and would need to be assessed. During this call we can agree whether a programme, one of my training services or another option would suit you and your dog best at this time and book in your assessment and goal setting meeting.
  • Completion of a Background Information Form and payment to secure your programme.
If at  the Discovery Call stage it is agreed that a bespoke programme is not the best way forward at this time, for example if we agree you require general training a 1-2-1  private coaching course  or programme may be more suitable in your situation.

Gill is an approved instructor so follows the ethics & training methods of:Also a platinum member of the Pet Professional Network


Jane & Rio:

Had our first training session on Sunday and what a difference in Rio already. Gill taught us as well as him on how to react to things around us and to watch him and let him tell us if he is nervous Looking forward to next week . Highly recommended.

Helen, Andy, Meggie & Baxter:

Gill is patient and encouraging. The sessions really help to build trust between dog and owner. We have learnt strategies to help with various behaviours in a positive way. Thoroughly recommend.

Julia, Flappy and Blue:

Reactive Dog Training I have attended two courses with my 2 reactive dogs. Gill is very positive and has helped me have to confidence to recognise signals from my dogs and act accordingly. I have even started walking them again! And Flappy has made a new friend on our walks!!! Thank you

Tony & Bertie:

Very good for new owners Gill is very good at showing how new owners can spot the behaviours in dogs and overcome them to the benefit of both. By showing owners and explaining what the dogs are doing and why, you get invaluable tips on how to control and enjoy the dogs without worry. Bertie has loved the sessions and so have I, and both dog and owner have come on in leaps and bounds!

Jo & Ashe:

Great opportunity for my dog to meet farm animals in a controlled setting. Will be booking into the next one.

Angela & Theo:

Back to Basic's is just what Theo and I needed. Theo was an easily distracted dog when out and now he is a pleasure to walk. Great environment for lessons. Thank you Gill for the training and advise

Dee & Lyla:

Great to be around farm animals and be up close to the lambs. Lyla didn’t seem to be to bothered by them. Gill does take a slow and gentle approach so that dogs can process the environment they are in. Good afternoon. Thanks Gill.

Su & Usha:

Absolutely superb Had a fabulous first session with Gill. Usha had an absolutely brilliant time, she slept for hours after! Plenty of opportunities for her to learn, play and 'be' in a safe, controlled environment. We both learnt new skills ... and are already practising them at home. Gill explained everything really clearly which made everything so much easier to do! Thank you, really looking forward to the next session

Jo & Lottie:

Great Fun for Dogs We have been bringing Lottie our Jack Russell to Hoopers on Sunday mornings and she absolutely loves it. The trainers are brilliant and explain the exercises really clearly and make it fun for the dogs with plenty of opportunity to socialise too.

Claire, Ella & Minnie:

Hi Gill I hope you are ok and all your classes are going well. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the classes you did for us and for all that you taught us – a big thank you! Ella and I did really enjoy the classes, especially the puppy socialisation ones. I feel they really helped Minnie get on with the other puppies and got her used to being around new dogs and experiences. I get lots of compliments about how well trained Minnie is, which makes me a very proud puppy mum! She is very obedient (on the whole!), sociable and keen to please. I do lots with her off the lead – she never goes far and comes back quickly if called. I believe that a lot of this is due to what you taught me and it gave me confidence with Minnie and her training. I love being out and about with her and she is now enjoying running off road with me, which is just great for us both! So a big thank you from all of us for your help and guidance (and a woof and a lick from Minnie!)

Hayley & Marble:

Hoopers We are on our second Hoopers course with Gill and really enjoying it. The lessons are lots of fun and our young dog Marble has become much more focussed and attentive. Would thoroughly recommend the sessions.

Karen & Roxie:

I initially met Gill when attending her Reactive Dog Classes as my Rottie could and was very reactive. Roxie and I learnt together in these classes, skills which would help me in helping her in situations she was not comfortable in. She is maturing into a very well mannered girl albeit can still have to odd moment but I am more aware of her body language. Thanks Gill :-) xx

Bill & Evie:

Having nearly always just done obedience, I feel we are more of a team moving around a Hoopers course together!

Mel & Daisy:

Really kind dog loving lady who helped me with my puppy. Hope lockdown ends soon for you Gill


Thank you Gill for fitting and supplying our working cocker spaniel with a perfect fit harness, we love it and it makes such a big difference. Gill was also very understanding and accepting of our slightly people shy dogs temperament - which is always helpful! Will definitely recommend you to others ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Karen, Izzy & Basil:

I would highly recommend Gill as a trainer. She has great knowledge of how to train even the most hectic terrier. Gills classes are fun and informative. Both me and my terrier love them.

Paula & Bruno:

Thank you for an enjoyable challenge Gill, lots of tips and great to hear how we can train our dogs with just a little time and patience .

Jayne & Tarn:

Thanks Gill enjoyed the week although I didn't manage 3x5 minutes every day it made me realise I should be doing more. Resolution to try a new skill every week. Thank you

Natalie & Lottie:

Lottie has made really good progress with the off switch training this week! We have got to a comfortable stage 3 so will start adding in the cue now as she starts to approach her bed 😊 thanks for all your efforts this week Gill Gallagher it’s been great!

Rhiannon & Tyson:

Gill is fantastic, knowledgeable and patient, she had great ideas for any solution, her classes are great fun and she runs lots of distanced challenges that are really helpful. would highly recommend Gill

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a "reactive" dog what training is available?

1-2-1 private training can benefit dogs that my have emotional issues such as anxiety & fearful reactions to other dogs & people. So they can learn new skills and spend quality time with their handler without the fear of meeting or being approached by the things they are concerned about. These are held in my secure private field.

Can you help my dog pulls on the lead?

Yes if your dog has a specific issue like pulling on the lead, poor recall or jumping up etc and a general training class is not required. We offer 1-2-1 training courses so we can cover the areas you would like addressing and miss out the rest which may be great for the others but not for you at the time.

What is the difference between a package and a programme?

Packages are block of 1-2-1 sessions usually used for dealing with specific training issues such as recall, lead walking or general skills of a puppy or rescue dog.
Programmes are bespoke and are a 2 or 3 month commitment which will focus more complex behaviour issues or longer term situations. The programme includes a full assessment & goal setting meeting, a full plan & support.

Do you do puppy socialisation classes?

We do not offer face to face group puppy socialisation classes as a puppies key socialisation and learning phase is between birth and 12-16 weeks and as half of this is spent with their mum and the breeder. Then once your puppy is home they have 4 weeks before they have completed their vaccinations so have missed out on much of this key phase. Therefore out 4 week Puppy Partnership course via Zoom will fill this gap and allow you to start your training and will support you during this time. 

Are face to face sessions allowed due to the covid pandemic?

Covid 19 -  face to face 1-2-1 consultations are now able to take place following current government guidelines

Which areas do you cover for 1-2-1 home visits

I cover Clanfield, Horndean, Waterlooville, Havant, Droxford, Hambledon. Wickham, Drayton, Farlington, Cosham, Emsworth, Portsmouth, Southsea, and  anywhere within a 25 mile radius of Portsmouth
