Dog Training

We offer a variety of different classes for dogs over 5 months. For puppy training please see the Puppy School page.

Life Skills 1

This 4 week course costs £75 and is suitable for dogs that have completed that are new to training or need to refresh the basics. The aim of this course is to train basic 'manners' or obedience to help you and your dog live happily together.

Life Skills 2

This six week course takes the basics learnt in Life Skills 1 or at Puppy School and adds useful tricks including emergency stops, recalls from distraction and leaving items alone, as well as self control exercises and introducing you and your dog to some doggy sports - £95. Sign up for Life Skills 1 & 2 together for £155.

Pre-agility

Whether you want to compete or just do agility for fun, pre-agility helps you train your dog to work with you in a safe and accurate way. See the Rally & Agility page for more details.

Dog Club

This weekly class is suitable for dogs that have completed the life skills course or that have been assessed as ready to join the group. At this class we do a different thing each week; general training, rally, agility, trick training, scentwork, doggy dancing, flyball & clicker workshops. Classes are £10 per class. Run at Lane End on Saturdays.

At £65 per hour session or 6 sessions for £360 any issue usually covered in a training class can be taught on a 1-2-1 basis - More than one dog? Price stays the same!

What our clients say…

 A fun learning experience for my puppy, he has turned into a very well-mannered dog thanks to the help of the puppy classes 

Emily Pearce

 Jenny has been great training Jack & Jill, from day one I have seen improvements and they are a joy to live with; I have never had such well trained dogs. Jenny has been really patient and has helped me find ways to train the puppies around my commitments, even taking them for intensive training when I have been busy studying. Two puppies at once may not have been the best idea, but Jenny has helped me make it work and I wouldn't trade them for the world 

Annette Garman

 Jenny's dog training classes were excellent. Her clear and calm approach worked well with our excitable puppy 

Claire Pettit

 Jenny's improver classes were fantastic for my lively rescue dog, Sam. Her patience and understanding with both of us, and innovative approaches to his behavioural issues have been invaluable. Sam is now a much calmer, happier dog who adores Jenny! 

Jenny Newson

 Jenny came to meet our puppy Milo as he was scared of other dogs and displaying signs of separation anxiety.  Jenny spent an hour with us, and gave us some tips of how to help Milo work things out.  Namely, introduced tasty treats, of cheese and chicken/ ham pieces, playing "find it", and distracting him when other dogs are approaching, and so on. We followed Jenny's advice to the letter, and he is now doing brilliantly! He looks at other dogs, and greets appropriately, then looks to me for a treat, knowing he has done well!

 Jenny is very good. Has been much help to me and Rio 

June Goff

 Thank you for the help you have given me with the training of Otto. I hope that your business goes from strength to strength as you are an excellent teacher. 

Sophie Hearnden

 Thank you so much for coming today. We are really impressed with your ideas and we can see Bella is already responding. 

Jane Green

 Very good introduction to obedience for Emerson, but excellent learning for us on how to teach him. 

Ashley

 Jenny has been an invaluable part of our lives since we bought our first ever puppy. The puppy and improver classes gave us the skills needed to help develop our puppy into a wonderfully rounded, sociable and fun dog to be with. Jenny's knowledge, patience and calm nature is so reassuring for us and we look forward to her classes every week as our one year old grows from strength to strength in her training - not to mention how much fun our lively dog has in her classes, she simply adores Jenny! We also use Jenny's dog sitting and walking services, which is an amazing resource to be able to call upon. Jenny is 100% trustworthy, reliable and caring - a combination that is as valuable as gold dust. Suffice to say we feel sorry for people that don't have Jenny in their lives.
