Namratha only uses reward-based and positive training techniques. Services include:

  • Temperament testing to help match the ideal puppy (rescue or from a breeder’s litter) to your family
  • Obedience training commands including leash walking and toilet training
  • Trick training e.g. paw, roll over, fetch the newspaper etc.
  • Behaviour programs to work through issues such as separation anxiety, fussy eating, jumping, fear and phobias
  • Aggression or reactivity issues
  • Scent detection, tracking and other nose work
  • Consulting with NGOs on temperament testing, behaviour modification prior to adoption


  1. The first session is online and free of cost. The aim of the first session is to understand the dog and their issues, the pet’s family and their routines, and to outline a training/behaviour programme for the dog.
  2. After the first session, a minimum commitment of 4 sessions is required – 1 session per week for 4 weeks. 
  3. Keeping in mind the ongoing pandemic, the sessions will be held online. The only time an in-person session will be expected will be if I think the case requires in-person intervention. This will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
  4. Each session after the first will cost Rs.1800. This fee can be paid in advance for a single session or for 4 sessions at a time. It can also be paid at the end of every class but no later.

    My dog Bruno, have not seen him yet , he is with my son in gaziabad. He got hurt n needs treatment. My son is doing everything for him but can’t manage.
    I want to bring him to pune for the treatment.
    Bringing by air is very costly . By road , train … don’t know how .. my son said , ” I don’t want to give him to any adoption agency, since his leg is not well. We will take care of him ”
    I don’t know what to do . Pl suggest .

      Hi Manjiri, I would recommend you discuss your options with the vet. They are in the best position to recommend treatment and potential transportation options if needed. If the vet suggests that you absolutely need to transport Bruno to Pune, then I am happy to talk to you more about my experiences (and put you in touch with people) in plane and train. I hope Bruno gets well soon!

    Hi, I’ve a 2yrs old male Indian Spitz with a lot of aggression and behavioural issues. He barks and lunges towards our guests, kids in his sight, pigeons and other dogs on the road. Starts barking excessively when the doorbell rings. He has also bitten a girl. He is a perfect pet with the family members but with any other stranger he totally loses his cool. Could you please help because it’s causing a lot of distress in our family!
