Training should be started as soon as practicable and it’s safe to take you pup outside – at least a couple of weeks after a pup’s final vaccinations. The earlier you start, the easier it is to work through any behavioural issues moving forward.

However, if your dog is older, do not worry, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! Any dog will benefit from dedicated attention and training which can learned at any age.

That depends on the dog. Different dogs, breeds, ages, genders and temperaments will all be a deciding factor. Training is an ongoing process with which you will engage throughout your dog’s life. Dogs and people learn at different rates and start with different experiences.

The amount of training required is also dependent on your end goal, what “trained” means to you. Do you just want to learn “basics” or achieve the “perfect” dog? This is a lifelong journey which will require your commitment and a consistent approach.

We accept and train all breeds – pedigree and cross breeds.

Please don’t rush out and buy a new lead, collar and other training equipment. You will be advised during your first training session on the best equipment for your dog.

Please wear what you feel will be most comfortable. I would suggest a pair of walking boots or sturdy shoes, casual clothes (jeans or joggers) and plenty of layers.
