Our dedicated team are here to help you build a stronger relationship with your dog through our positive training classes. We have 5 week courses tailored for puppies, adolescents, adults and rescue dogs.

Our classes have been carefully designed to provide the best learning environment. We will teach you the most effective way to train your dog, all about canine body language, how dogs communicate with each other and why your dog is behaving in a particular way. These skills will last you and your dog a lifetime.
