1-to-1 Training Sessions
Specifically designed to suit your individual dog. No two dogs are the same, so why should our training be? In our 1-to-1 sessions we will work with you to tailor a training plan for you and your dog to help you achieve your personal goals. From life skills to advanced assistance tasks, recall to reactivity, we are here to help you and your dog achieve your full potential.
Workshops are a fun way to spend time with your dog learning a wide variety of new skills. These sessions are standalone classes which makes them a brilliant option if you can't make weekly classes. We offer a huge range or topics including, doggy parkour, Real Dog Yoga, assistance behaviours, rapid recall, dog surfing and more!

Do you often find yourself wishing you could change things? Our Train-for-you service might be just what you're looking for! We are experts in teaching dogs a wide variety of skills so why not put our expertise to good use and get us to train your dogs for you! No need to fit sessions around your schedule. We can get the training started immediately for you and then teach you how to maintain it at home!
