What Breeds of Dog Do You Train?

We’re always up to speed with new research and training techniques, and over the years we’ve taught every dog breed possible, including Great Danes, Labradors,Golden Retrievers, Springer Spaniels, Pugs, Shih Tzus, Poodles, Chihuahuas, Border Collies, Jack Russells and Boxer Dogs among many others. Our puppy classes are ideal if you’re looking to teach your dog the essentials, and we cover a range of exercises, including sit, attention, recall, down, stay, greet and handling  among others, whilst we will also introduce the clicker.

What Types of Dog Training is Available?

We want you to have a fantastic relationship with your dog, and we can give you expert tips to handle particular behaviours, whilst we can also read stress signals, and help you deal with basic behavioural issues in a reward based, force-free way. Our current courses for every type of dog breed include adult beginner, puppy and puppy pre-school classes, while our TD beginners and improvers courses are aimed at owners who want to compete in fun dog sports. Our team is fully qualified in a number of areas, and we’re dedicated to providing the best possible training for all breeds. We also provide one to one sessions, and these are perfect for nervous dogs that are unable to cope with the stress of group training classes. These take place in the comfort of your own home, and many busy working professionals opt for these lessons if they do not have the time to commit to certain days and times.

Does Reward Based Dog Training Really Work?

Dog breeds are often characterised by certain behavioural traits, but whether you own a German Shepherd, Rottweiler, a French Bulldog, a Beagle or a Dalmatian, we’re confident we can deliver the perfect course for your pet. Clicker training always comes into play with our courses, and this is a successful and efficient method to help your dog understand what they are doing right and get rewarded for it. Reward based training involves using food, but this not bribing because we teach our clients to fade out the rewards

Our team is here to set your dog up for success and you can learn more about our classes by sending us a message, or by calling us on 01536 712499.

Helping a Dog Cope with Strangers

Helping a Dog Cope Better with Strangers

Why We Were Contacted?

Joanne contacted us to see whether we could help Luna, her miniature one-year-old Labradoodle to cope better with strangers in and outside the home. Luna started taking a dislike to strangers for no apparent reason, and this is sometimes the case. Luna sometimes barks at people and in the home would run away from them. It was Joanne’s priority to make Luna happier with strangers. Apart form that, she is a wonderful little girl.

Training to Become a PAT Dog

Training to Become a PAT Dog

Why We Were Contacted?

Ken contacted us for a one 2 one with 18 months old Golden Retriever Daisy, in order to work through the requirements of becoming a PAT (Pet As Therapy), so she would be able to pass her assessment and become a lovely working dog. I had worked with Daisy when she was a puppy also on a one 2 one basis at Ken & Tina’s home where we taught her all the basics, using clicker training, so this visit was more of a refresher and making sure that she was capable of doing what was required

Puppy Springer Spaniel Training

Puppy Springer Spaniel Training

Why We Were Contacted?

Katrina and Tom contacted us, as they wanted to work on a couple of behaviours with their eight months old Springer Spaniel Sky, before they joined our Junior/Adult Beginners classes. They wanted a head start to give Sky the best possible chance to be a well mannered girl before a new puppy join their family in a couple of months. An important point for Katrina and Tom was also for Sky not to jump up at people when out and about due to her friendliness and excitement.

Maria contacted us for a one 2 one session in order to help her with her two year old rescue Yorkshire Terrier, Esme. This poor little girl had not had the best of starts in life, as she was used for breeding on a puppy farm. Luckily for her, Maria rescued her and she is now a very happy little girl, with just a few issues to work on due to her past life.

How to Stop a Puppy from Biting

How to Stop a Puppy from Biting

Why We Were Contacted?

We were contacted by Charlotte to give some advice on a couple of puppy issues and putting some basic training into place for very cute 14 week old Staffie, Nico. Charlotte’s main concern was the biting and nipping, and how to deal with it in an appropriate and efficient manner. She also wanted Nico to listen to her more when doing basic training, and work on his recall to make sure that she could trust him when out and about.
