Gill Gallagher- Canine Coach
Bespoke Coaching Programmes

Your puppy or dog is such an important member of your family, I will work with you to assist & support during your life together.
Specialising in working spaniels to help you to harness their instincts, drive, motivation & natural reinforcements to improve your relationship, confidence & communication

Puppy Programme for puppies from 8 weeks at home to ensure you your life with your puppy gets off to a great start.

4-week Face  to Face Puppy Programmes  - £200
NEW 4-week Online (via Zoom) Puppy Programme - £175

Your puppy learns so much up to 16- 20 weeks & for most of this time they are unable to attend a class as they have hopefully spent at least half of this time with their mum, siblings and the breeder. Then approximately the first 4 weeks with you they are unable to leave the home on foot.

These programmes are designed to provide what you need to give your puppy a great start in their life

To get the most out of your Puppy's key learning phase our puppy programmes can start as soon as your puppy is settled in your home. They are tailored to your experience and your puppy's breed and temperament.

Face to face programmes will vary depending on the age of your puppy, their vaccination status and your experience, but will consist of:
- Four 60 minute home visits or outside sessions once your puppy has completed their vaccinations
- A puppy pack with treat & food samples

The pre-vaccinated puppy programme may include:
  • Support with routines such as toileting, rest, sleep and exercise
  • Relationship & confidence building
  • Calmness & settling
  • Two-way communication
  • Puppy skills
The post vaccination programme may include:
Any of the above where required in the home environment & outside
Introductions to
  • Lead walking
  • Recall
  • Different environment , people & other animals
  • Focus games
Online (via Zoom) programmes will cover any of the above that can be covered online coaching using video where required.

These programmes are time critical due to the shortness of the key learning phase your puppy has.
I would therefore recommend you book in advance so we can commence once you puppy has settle with you which is probably 5 -7 days after they have joined the family and had their initial vet check.

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

Chloe:

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

Sue & Storm:

Storm is our 5mth black Labrador, we have had her since 8weeks old, we are both retired & have had dogs all our lives, but not had a puppy for a very long time, & wanted to give her the best possible start, we decided to seek professional help in training her & that’s where Gill came in. We booked for a 6 week 121 training session, we found Gill’s training techniques very instructive not only for Storm but for us as well, Storm took to Gill as soon as she saw her, she was very patient with Storm and ourselves. Storm can now be let off her lead in a secure place, her recall has improved immensely & so has her lead walking. Storm has come a long way in 6 weeks & that is down to Gill’s training. I thoroughly recommend her if you are looking to train your dog.

June, Jasper & Murphy:

Trying For My Boys Can’t thank Gill enough for all the hard work she has put into training with my springer and Labrador Jasper and Murph. Top tips and hard working from everyone has turned my two manic dogs into great dogs. Still a small way to go to nail down a couple of issues but overall really happy with the time she has spent on them. It’s been really challenging having two boys so close in age together but we have worked on this and would recommend without hesitation. thanks Gill x

June, Jasper & Murphy
     

Jo & Luca:

Hoopers My Dog Luca and I really enjoyed doing Hoopers with Gill. She is a great trainer and Luca and I learnt so much from her during our Hoopers lessons. I would recommend Gill for the Hoopers and any other training required. She is very patient and passionate about what she does.

Jo & Luca
     

Rob & Arti:

Great Advice And Support ***** Gill provided myself and my 5 month old working cocker puppy with great advice and support around recall and being outside. She has a secure field with lots of distractions available and was willing to come to local parks to where we live too. Great value for money and Gill has given us the confidence to continue in our training ????, we would highly recommend! Thanks

Rob & Arti
     

Helen & Woody:

Recall Training I used Gill to train our 2 year old Cavapoo to come back when called. Had 4 sessions with Gill and this has proved to be really useful . The training that I was given was just as good as what the dog had. This has given me more confidence in letting the dog off his lead now Highly recommend Gill

     

Cindy & Murphy:

Recall With Murphy I’m so happy I meet Gill to help me with Murphy’s recall I can happily say it done miracles ????

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. 

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
