Pet Dog Training

Teaching You to Teach Your Dog!

There are many different styles of dog training, we promote motivational training and encourage the use of treats and toys. What’s important is that you have a happy well-behaved dog that is welcome anywhere

Your dog’s bad behaviour isn’t intentional he just doesn’t know any better.  If you train him you’ll have a polite, well-liked dog.  All dogs – whatever shape, size, or breed are welcome. Ring 01904 728235 to book a Pet Dog Training Course.

About Hannah

Hannah has taught the Kennel Club Good Citizen Award Scheme for 6 years, helping over 3000 dog owners pass their Bronze Good Citizen Award. Since Hannah can remember she has always had a love of dogs, unable to have a dog as a child growing up, the first thing Hannah did when she moved out was buy her first dog, a Rottweiler puppy named Roxy. Sadly Roxy only lived until she was 6 but was the foundation for Hannah’s interest in competitive obedience and taught Hannah so much. Since Roxy, Hannah has owned 3 other Rottweilers, has bred a litter, competed in hundreds of obedience shows, earning her a place at Crufts 2017, has competed in Championship Breed shows with the dog she bred and has had a go at Agility and Rally-O.
