Dog training overview

Dog training is all about clear communication, building relationships and having fun with your dog. In these sessions you’ll learn reward based training techniques that are fun to use and that have been proven to work.

Sessions are lively with a broad mix of activities. And I’ll tailor exercises to suit you and your dog, whatever your ability.

Relaxed and fun

Just like people, dogs learn best when they’re having fun. So, it’s really important to me that you and your dog enjoy your training. 

All my training is delivered in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere – this means celebrating our successes and laughing it off when things don’t go to plan. Mistakes are all part of the learning process.

Everyone learns at their own pace so I’ll make sure you’re always supported, whether you’re mastering the basics of recall and loose lead walking, or ready for tricks like spin and bow.

And if you and your dog are ready for more advanced training, we also do search exercises, foundation agility and more advance dog tricks.

Meet Jane & Nico

“Tony was fantastic in helping us to rehome our three-year-old German Shepherd, Nico. From practical tips about control and management (I also have two children under five!) to behavior strategies for issues such as barking at visitors and jumping up, he gave clear, concise advice, all based on positive reinforcement. ”

Meet Claire and Charlie

“Hi Tony, Just wanted to say how much we both enjoyed today. I have done puppy training before but it's never been that enjoyable and positive. You brought things up no one else has before and it's reset my mind on training Charlie (and myself) we are looking forward to practicing and seeing you again. Oh and Charlie is LOVING his kong meals. Thanks again it was a pleasure.”

Meet Hayley and Buzz

“Buzz and I were so pleased with our first puppy training session with Tony. I got lots of great tips of how to stop Buzz from pulling on the lead, what games to play with him, what to feed him and when to give him treats. We have been practicing lots and I’m pleased to report that we are both we are both very happy with our progress.”
