Our Story

In our experience, the root cause for the majority of behavioural problems in dogs is as a result of mismanagement and lack of education. This has therefore inspired us to help owners understand their dogs better and build a more meaningful bond.

What We Do

We offer fun, friendly dog training classes to teach you and your dog the basic training, including how to prevent future behaviour problems developing. Behaviour consultations and 1 on 1 training sessions are offered for those requiring some additional support. 

News and events


We are soon to offer dog walking services around Melton Mowbray and Cotgrave 

Walks will vary in cost depending on a variety of factors but start from £10 for an hour walk. 

We will do group walking/solo walking and specialised training walks depending on your dogs needs.

Behaviour consultation

A huge thank you to Adrian for all of his help with our dog Bella. We'd completely hit a wall with her behaviour and didn't know where to go next. Adrian helped us to understand why the behaviours were happening and in turn, how we could help support Bella in remaining calm in new situations. Adrian's positive behaviour management has been so much more successful than other methods, collars, etc. that have been recommended in the past and we can't thank him enough.

1-2-1 Training session 

Cannot tell you what a difference Adrian has made to our lives in a such a short space of time. In just three 1-2-1 sessions he has helped us with so many of Lima’s little issues, and we already have an attentive well behaved puppy! Adrian is able to see what the issues are, and help US with great techniques to support Lima’s learning . I would thoroughly recommend his classes and 1-2-1 sessions to anyone
