Training

Doggy Days Good Dog School was created to help dogs and owners to live in harmony so that they can enjoy their lives together, as a family.  The bond between a dog and their family is something very special indeed & training can enhance that bond.

Through training, we can help develop the communication and understanding between dog and owner, which is key to building a strong and fulfilling relationship. An understanding of the emotional as well as physical needs of a dog leads to a more contented dog and a happier owner.

Our friendly training courses offer a structured progression from puppy basics through to more advanced learning and fun stuff for older dogs. Our reward based learning methods mean that dogs are treated with kindness and respect at all times and are never treated harshly. Encouragement and support are the order of the day for owners too – we want everyone to feel comfortable at Doggy Days Good Dog School.

We currently offer 6 week courses as well as Workshop & 1:1 options – you can find dates of available classes on our facebook page.
