About Us

Established in 1997 we believe every person, dog and situation is unique. Training is provided by highly qualified team members who love dogs and have many years experience in dog welfare, training, psychology, behaviour problem solving and grooming.

Handlers and dogs are trained on a personal, one-to-one basis as well as in small groups in a variety of environments with continually adapting methods to suit individual requirements.

We offer a wide range of services and courses from handling dogs with behaviour problems, Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme to Gun Dog work. Our methods are kind, fun, highly motivational and effective with all handlers encouraged to 'think' dog!

Assessments & 121s

Puppy Life Skills Course

Class numbers are limited to ensure small friendly groups. Classes take place during the week and weekends. We cover socialization and good manners. This includes not jumping up, mouthing and chewing, walking nicely on the lead, coming back when called, toilet training and much more.

Kennel Club Good Citizens Courses

All dogs/puppies can take part in this scheme which is the largest training programme in the UK, promoting responsible ownership and teaching practical dog training skills for everyday life.

Adult Classes & SWDTBC Awards

For those handlers/dogs that want something even more challenging.

Behaviour Consultations

These are held daily with dog, handler and family members, if necessary, where we look at not just the problem but the daily things that may influence and maintain undesirable behaviour.

Training methods used are clearly explained and demonstrated with telephone backup support together with further one 2 ones if required.

Some consultations are carried out following a veterinary referral.
