Private Dog Training

We offer  puppy training, private dog training sessions and take on a number of rehabilitation cases each year.  We believe we have an ethical responsibility to help reduce the number of pet dogs abandoned, surrendered or euthanised because of poor early socialization, lack of early training or the inadvertent development of inappropriate or unwanted behaviors that negatively impact the relationship between owner and dog. 

Our trainers are professionally qualified and experienced dog trainers.
