Happy, healthy dogs for life


25 June 2020

We hope you are all safe and well during this difficult time. We are not currently able to offer safe and distanced training classes (Puppy School or Pawsitive follow on classes) due to the restrictions and guidance put in place by the Government during the pandemic.


Running group classes is not currently viable due to the following reasons:

  • They would need to be outside and the weather is too unpredictable for young dogs

  • Only one family member could come along

  • No puppy play would be allowed  

  • I would be unable to demonstrate exercises with your puppies as I cannot handle multiple dogs in a session. 

These are just a small example of the number restrictions we currently face.

I am, however, offering 121 puppy  training in gardens or open spaces where we are able to socially distance and take the necessary precautions. These sessions last around an hour to an hour and a half and cost £45. This gives us plenty of time to cover all the basics and to tailor the session to any specific issues you would like help or advice on.


Examples of issues I can help with:

  • Play biting/toy play

  • Toilet training

  • Eye contact

  • Coming back when called

  • Sit, stand, down

  • Walking on a loose lead

  • ‘Off’

  • Stay

  • Plus lots more…..


If you would like to arrange a 121 please either message me through the website or email me at: cushlalamen@gmail.com


As soon as the Government guidelines and restrictions are updated we will hopefully be able to publish start dates for courses in the Autumn.

Galen Myotherapy is a hands-on, manual therapy that uses specific and effective massage techniques. 

Targeted massage techniques and exercise management can help manage chronic muscular pain and inflammation.

It's ideal for working dogs or dogs suffering with lameness and stiffness, often relating from other conditions, old injuries or commonly, repetitive strain issues.
