Dog School

Dog School Merseyside

Here at Dog School Merseyside we offer friendly classes for Puppies, Adolescents, Adults and Rescue dogs in your local area. 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. Our classes never have more than six dogs and have at least two trainers to make sure that we can devote time to each individual and help you to progress. We use science-led, reward-based training to make sure that we get the best results, and have lots of fun whilst doing so!

We also run seminars on a variety of topics so check back for information on exciting events happening near you!

Hannah Bothwell, Senior Coach

Hannah has had a lifelong love for animals that began with walking all her neighbours' dogs and horse riding, which lead her on to study Animal Behaviour at Liverpool John Moores University.

After graduating in 2017 and gaining some canine husbandry experience, Hannah has been volunteering with Dog School Merseyside for over a year.

Hannah hasn't got any pets at the moment but can't wait until she has a suitable environment to introduce a pooch to!
