Covering aspects of modern dog training using positive reinforcement to train your dog obedience commands such as sit, down, stay and come. Giving you insight into creating clear communication with your dog and building that special bond.

Build your dog’s Focus.

Our Happy Clients!

Iain is an excellent trainer. His calm personable manner helps you to feel relaxed and able to take on board his suggestions.

He has a great wealth of knowledge and is always happy to help if you have questions that are not part of the weeks training. This is our 3rd puppy and we only wish we had found him sooner and used him for our other 2-we learned so much more with him and are using our new knowledge with the other 2 older dogs now and getting great results.

I needed help with basic puppy training, for polite and obedient dog. We met with Iain, who was great… With pup and Me… I got bit emotional as I was so desperate to get things right. Iain didn’t seem fazed at all, calmed me, gave me the confidence to carry on.

My pup loved him, and we have carried on with training at home. I took on board lots of tips Iain shared and he was happy to answer all my random doggy questions.
I am so happy I met with him and he’s been in contact to see how things are going.
Definitely recommend highly.

Iain’s training was extremely helpful and easy to transfer from being at the training to home life.

I have noticed a huge change in the behaviour of my puppy throughout the course.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to bring to class?

Your dog in their flat collar (and body harness if you have one) and standard lead. Lots of treats, both high and low value. Their favourite tug toy and grooming equipment (third class only)

What happens if the weather is bad?

We check the weather forecast the day before each scheduled class. If the weather is predicted to be unsuitable for training, we will check the availability of the covered training arena. If available, the class will be run under cover. If, however, the arena is not available, we will postpone training that week and continue the course from the following week.

Are there class note handouts for each lesson?

We have gone one further for you. Your Client Portal will give you access to additional course information, videos and insight for each lesson of your in-person course.

Can we continue group training after the course?

Of cause! Once you have completed the course, you can book Practice Paws sessions. These sessions have up to 4 dogs and can be booked individually to suit your diary.

The next available Life Skills course starts Sunday, 5th of May
