Alternative class options

Our regular classes might not be the best option for everyone, here are some more ways we can help:

We realise there are owners who need training or behaviour support for their dogs, but who are unable to afford the costs associated with these services. If you are looking for help with your dog’s training or behaviour, and need some financial assistance, please apply for our discounted classes.

Our approach

At Dogs Trust we train dogs using reward based methods, and do not advocate the use of any training equipment which changes behaviour by causing pain or fear in dogs.

Dogs which are trained with rewards enjoy learning - they are a partner in the training sessions and often 'offer' new behaviours to see if they get a reward.

Reward based training works to change behaviour and enhances the bond between dog and owner.

We also make sure you get the support and resources you need to help you in our classes and beyond. These courses include access to our owner support hub to enable a strong start to your training.
