We are passionate about responsible pet ownership and helping owners to develop greater communication skills with their dogs.  We use only kind, reward based methods of training as we know that this increases the bond with our pets and results in well-rounded and content dogs and handlers.  By educating and socialising a puppy correctly from the beginning, owners reduce the chance of behaviour problems developing and pups are more likely to grow into sociable and obedient adult dogs that are a pleasure to have around.  It is never too early to start educating your puppy!  It is the responsibility of a good dog owner to train and educate their dog

So that it is an acceptable member of society.

Nobody likes a badly behaved dog!
