Dog Training

Training is kind - no choke chains, no shouting, no water sprays or cans of stones, no pulling or pushing dogs to force them to do things – sadly many of these methods are still seen in UK training classes.

Training is all reward-based.

One-to-One Training
One-to-one training sessions are available for those dogs who need a specific focus perhaps on recall or lead walking. If your dog pulls you down the road – teach how to walk next to you on a loose-lead. 
These sessions can also be helpful for young dogs to prevent the development of unwanted behaviours such as jumping up, mouthing or grabbing clothes.
