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.

Pet sitting

I have a rescue dog who can find new people and situations a little stressful, so having someone look after him in our own home while we are away seemed like the best option. We had not left him before, and wasn’t quite sure how he would react, but he took it all in his stride and we came back to a very relaxed and happy dog after our time away. Adrian was great in organising everything and keeping us updated, and Emma was just fantastic with our dog. He can take a little while to warm up to new people, but you could tell by just how pleased he was to see Emma that we had left him in great hands. I think he was then a little disappointed when she didn’t come round the next day after we got back!

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
