Award Winning Puppy Training Specialist with over 20 years experience within the industry. Reward based training using behavioural approaches combined with obedience training to help you get the most out of your dog – at any age!

Group training is great for the regular practice and the opportunity to work around the distraction of other dogs.  However, you may prefer some one to one help, perhaps due to your work schedule or because a class environment may not be suitable for your dog.

Park training usually takes place at Danson Park, Bexleyheath.  Hall Place, Bexley and Chislehurst Recreation Ground.  It’s possible for sessions to be held in other locations – please enquire.
