Dogs Trust

UPDATE: Our rehoming centres are closed until further notice, however we are now able to rehome a small number of our amazing dogs. Each dog’s profile will let you know if they are looking for a new home. For the time-being, we are unable to register your interest for dogs who are not yet available for rehoming.

Dog School

Dog School Devon

We offer fun, positive friendly training classes for puppies, adolescent, adult and rescue dogs. All classes are aimed at teaching your dog skills that are useful in everyday life. We want you to have a strong and healthy bond with your dog and enjoy each other’s company. Welfare is always at the forefront of any advice or training we recommend, therefore it is important for us to offer the most up to date techniques based on the very best scientific knowledge currently available.

We are an energetic and dynamic team of trainers, with a wealth of experience and knowledge between us and our aim is to pass on the knowledge and skills needed to help dogs fit in with modern life, whilst being happy and confident. We’ll give expert advice and practical training to help you and your dog understand each other better.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we look forward to meeting you soon!

School Trainers

Fiona Strong, Senior Coach

Fiona graduated from university in 2015 with a degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare (BSc). She has spent the last 3 years working at Little Valley Animal Shelter in Exeter where she was able to put all the theory she had learnt to use! She loved being able to help make their time in rescue as stress free as possible.

Fiona is looking forward to starting her new adventure at Dogs Trust Dog School and is excited about helping dogs who may not settle as easily as others but also to watch the progression of each and every dog week by week!

In her spare time, Fiona enjoys keeping fit and getting out in the fresh air whether that’s for a long walk, out on horseback or a windswept ride on her bike!

Connor Bowers-Lee, Coach

Connor is a former Royal marine who joined civvi street at the end of 2019 with the intent to transfer into animal welfare and training. After attending the Dogs Trust Dog School puppy class with his ever growing Rhodesian Ridgeback Oban, he has not looked back.

Connor enjoys a morning routine of coffee, Fraiser and long walks by the River Exe with his snuggle buddy Oban.
