Dog School

Dog School Hampshire

Dogs Trust Dog School courses are designed to help owners understand their dog's behaviour and teach them the basic skills they need for everyday life. This includes being able to relax in different settings, meeting people and/or dogs politely, having manners around food, being handled/groomed calmly, coming back when called and walking nicely on lead. Every dog is an individual and learns at a different pace and our classes are kept to a maximum of six dogs, so we are able to guide each owner and their dog individually. We also help owners to understand how their dog learns and 'read' what their dog is telling them, to help prevent problem behaviours.

We are always pleased to talk to owners about what every dog needs for a happy and balanced life. Our goal is to enable owners and dogs to enjoy their lives together.
