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.
