For dogs who jump up at people

Perfectly Polite

Do you avoid having friends and family over because you know your dog will get too over-excited?

Are you feeling frustrated because you’ve tried all the ‘usual’ methods and they’re not working?

I can help you manage your dog and teach them how to greet people more appropriately so that instead of feeling embarrassed, you will feel calm and in control of the situation.

What does the package involve?

  • An initial 60-minute 1:1 training session at your home where we figure out what makes your dog tick and start working on the foundation skills they will need

  • Two further 60-minute 1:1  training sessions where I provide in-person coaching as you practice on real-life guests (including myself!)

  • A written training plan with clear step-by-step instructions on how to do the exercises so you can easily remind yourself of what to do and track your progress

  • Advice on how to manage greetings while your dog is still in training so that having guests over is less stressful

  • Ongoing support via WhatsApp and email until 4 weeks after the final session in case you have any questions or want feedback

  • No one-size-fits-all solutions - I take a behaviour-driven approach to training, which means I help you figure out why your dog is a bit 'over-the-top' when meeting people so we can address the problem at the root

  • An in-depth, structured programme focused on making lasting improvements to your dog’s behaviour rather than unreliable ‘quick fixes’

  • Kind, ethical training methods focused on rewarding the behaviours we want rather than punishing the ones we don't


Not sure if it's for you?

I also offer a one-off taster package to give you an idea of how I work and the benefits my training can bring for you and your dog!


This includes a 1-hour in-person session plus a follow-up email with some resources to get you started. It does not include the two follow-up sessions or WhatsApp and email support (these are only available when you upgrade to a full package).

Investment: £95

Perfectly Polite Greeters will be perfect for you if...

  • Your dog is an over-excited greeter and you’d like to teach them how to interact politely with guests so you don’t have to constantly manage them when you have people over

  • You’ve tried all the usual methods but they’re just not working, and you need help from someone who understands your dog

  • You’re committed to teaching your dog the skills they need using kind, force-free methods

  • You want to work with a qualified professional who will offer you compassionate and non-judgmental support

It won't be a great fit for dogs who...

  • Are extremely anxious or fearful

  • Are showing signs of aggression towards visitors

If this sounds like your dog, see the FAQ below.

Frequently Asked Questions

If your question isn't answered here, please click the button below to send me a message.

What methods do you use?

I only use kind, ethical training methods that focus on rewarding the behaviours we want and using management to prevent those that we don't.


All of my training is free of force and intimidation. I firmly believe that training based on punishment not only causes dogs unnecessary stress, but also damages the relationship between you and your dog.

My dog is aggressive/extremely fearful/'reactive'. Can you help?

Unfortunately I'm not taking on dogs with severe behavioural issues at the moment (but keep your eyes peeled for updates!) – I would advise that you seek the help of a clinical animal behaviourist (CAB); visit the ABTC website to find a CAB near you.

My dog is a puppy/teenager/adult/rescue dog. Is this training suitable for them?

Absolutely! I cater for all ages, breeds and personalities (although I do have a soft spot for rescue dogs).

Where are you based?

I am based in Leamington Spa, but will travel up to 45 minutes for training sessions.

What happens if I’ve finished my package but I need more sessions?

Once you’ve come to the end of your package we’ll review your progress and you’ll have the option to book top-up sessions if necessary.


I’m not sure I want to commit to a full package - do you offer one-off sessions?

You can book a one-hour taster session for any of my packages (except Perfectly Imperfect Rescue Dogs) - just fill in the booking request form and select ‘Taster Session’ under ‘What service are you interested in?’. After the session you will also receive an email pointing you towards some useful resources.
