Always be informed of the type of training methods used by a trainer and ask to view a class if unsure.
Unfortunately these dated methods are still being practiced by many ‘trainers’ that have not updated their skills following scientific studies that prove reward based training is the way to go.
Always investigate trainer's qualifications and the certification body before commencing any dog training.
It is not possible to become a skilled dog trainer/handler by studying a short, theory based or online course. Dog training is a skill that is learned through observation, practical handling and a good knowledge of different breed types and learning theory.
All of our classes are run by highly qualified trainers who are continually updating their skills by attending seminars held by world renowned industry leaders in their field and attending industry standard colleges such as COAPE (Centre of Applied Pet Ethology) in the UK to gain their qualifications.
Classes are held at our heated, indoor, custom designed training centre and with ample parking to the front. Group classes are typically held on Wednesdays at 7pm and on Saturdays at 11am. To enrol your dog in a class please contact us. One-to-one sessions are typically held in the evenings at 7pm.
We have a number of different dog training options available to best suit you and your dogs individual needs. If you are not sure which option to choose, please contact us for advice.
