Our Services

Puppy Training

The first 12 months of a dogs life are hugely important. If you want to get things right start with a Puppy Training Course to build a solid foundation for your pups future.

New puppy? These classes will put you and your pup on the same page. You’ll learn how to use positive reinforcement training to teach your dog how you want him to behave, and gentle but effective ways to discipline when he doesn’t. You’ll also learn how to avoid future behavior problems. And you’ll both have plenty of fun in the process!

Topics include: Basic manners, solving problems like jumping and chewing, and how to teach your dog sit, down, stay, come and polite leadwalking.

Our puppy classes are suitable for: Pups 8-16 weeks

Junior/Adult Training

‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ is thankfully not true!

Older dogs can be very receptive to training when we find what motivates them and makes them tick.

Our 6 week Basic Manners Course is run in
weekly 30 minute sessions

that can be booked as and when suits you best.
See below for our full course guide!

Behaviour Training

 A rehabilitation program can help ANY dog change their reaction in any situation.

Your dog may be a quivering wreck who is; fearful of people, dogs, the car, loud noises, or any new situation and would rather curl up into a corner and hide from the world. Other dogs are overtly aggressive to other animals, dogs or people; either out on a walk or when they come in the house. Some are boisterous, lack manners and self-control and are too sociable for their own good. Maybe you struggle with lead reactivity (a dog that barks as other dogs or people when on a lead)?

All of the behaviours above cause problems, which means you are left trying to manage every situation. You are always thinking how to avoid other dogs or people when out walking. This means you become more stressed and in turn your dog’s behaviour doesn’t improve; it actually gets worse. Thus making the whole process a vicious circle.

Fortunately it doesn’t have to be that way for ever.  Just imagine the pleasure you will get not seeing your dog cower away from strangers or not barking and lunging at other dogs when out on their daily walk. 


It is important that dogs learn how to behave off lead with other dogs, it isn’t enough to take your dog to the field and let them off lead, how do you know if they are learning the right skills. Maybe the dog they are playing with doesn’t know how to play correctly and is teaching your dog the wrong skills. 
Puppy Playgroups – Under 4 Months (on the first session)
