Dog Training Classes

Our dog training classes are fun, small and friendly so your dog and you can get the most out of them. We use clicker training and positive techniques to build a better bond between you and your dog and improve both your dogs behaviour and your understanding of why your dog does what they do!

We are currently only running open air puppy classes to comply with current social distancing guidelines.

Reactive dog classes – ongoing

Does your dog bark and lunge at other dogs? Is your dog worried by passing people?

Our new class is a small class for dogs with reactivity issues around other dogs, people or other triggers. Dogs will need to undergo a reactive dog training package before qualifying for this class to ensure you and your dog get the most out of the class as well as improving the behaviour on your normal walks.

Our class is small and centres on teaching your dog to be calm and happy around their trigger using positive associations, scent work and gradual desensitisation. However, due to the nature of the class this is not a socialisation class where dogs will meet and play.

Our dog training classes are a quick trip from Bradford-upon-Avon, Chippenham, Melksham, Bath and surrounding areas!
