Puppy and Dog Sessions


That’s right, even if you don’t have young kids, we can still help!! We run private consultations for puppy and dog parents.

  • Are you wanting to introduce a new dog or puppy into the home and don’t know where to start?
  • Do you want to be proactive and learn how to give your puppy/dog a happier life?
  • Are you struggling with those typical puppy problems? Toileting, sleeping, separation, loose lead walking?
  • Do you have a dog with behavioural concerns that you would like help with?

At Cooper and Kids we aim to make dogs and their families happier, whilst bridging the gap of miscommunication between dogs and their humans!

We use kind, gentle, positive science-based training methods.

Cooper and Kids is here to support and prepare you at each phase of your journey.
