Dog Training & Behaviour Specialists


  • All training techniques are kind, fair and reward based.
  • Class and workshop sizes are a maximum of 6 to 8 dogs and behaviour cases are taken on a 121 basis.
  • Classes and workshops are designed to be fun and rewarding for both dog and the handler but in the interest of safety, responsibility and welfare it is important that the following terms and conditions are noted.
  • The family can attend but all children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult other than the main handler of the dog.

General terms and conditions:

  • When attending our training classes or workshops you commit yourself to dog friendly training, science based methods. 
  • Harsh handling is not permitted and we reserve the right to ask a handler to leave if they refuse the advice regarding this.
  • We expect all dogs to wear a normal flat collar and lead. Choke chains, check chains, prong collars, punitive methods and manhandling are not allowed.
  • Please ensure your dog has a well fitted harness. Clare will not be able to work with you should you be working with a lead on a collar, or any equipment that may cause harm or discomfort.
  • Dogs are to be kept on a lead in and around our training venues unless specifically requested by the training team. All dogs must be kept under control and on a lead.

Payment terms:

  • We expect payment in full before the start of each course of classes.
  • We regret refunds are not available apart from in exceptional circumstances.
  • It is the trainer’s discretion to terminate an owner’s place in a class if the owner does not pay, notify of cancellation of a lesson or displays unacceptable behaviour towards other owners, dogs or trainers.
  • All 6 booked lessons in group classes must be completed within 3 months of the first booked lesson.

Cancellation of behaviour consultation, 121 appointments, classes or workshops

  • If you are unable to attend your class but decide to book a place on the course then unfortunately we cannot waiver the fees for the lessons you miss.
  • In the unlikely event of the training session being cancelled by MMDTS a catch up lesson will be given in return.
  • Please note that while you are working with Clare please adhere to her guidance. If you are working with or taking advice from other trainers, please disclose this, but be aware that it may result in termination of your agreement with Clare. Clare may direct you to other professionals, specialists and or resources that meet with her ethical standards.
  • Clare will be happy to work in triage with other professionals such as dog walkers if this is disclosed and arranged up front but again, you will be expected to work under her instruction and not use methods suggested or advised by other parties.
