Our Methods 
We use positive reinforcement as our main method of instruction. Teaching the dog to listen to its owner willingly rather than out of fear. This method has proven to be highly effective for both the dog and the trainer. Dog Training is an important part of a dog's life and improves character, confidence and stability. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than seeing a happy dog with a wagging tail listening to its owner. Our dog classes run month on month and therefore you are welcome to join at any time; and stay as long as you like in order to achieve your personal goals.
