"All of my classes are designed for companion/pet dogs and their owners.
Companion Dog Training classes are designed to teach you how to teach your dog to become a well behaved family pet, one that is a joy to own and a pleasure to take anywhere. To enable a true reflection of the problems encountered whilst owning a dog, most of my courses are based at "live locations" and not the artificial environment of a hall. All teaching and training methods are reward based to encourage correct motivation and learning, thereby creating strong boundaries from the onset of training. By using these kind effective methods, training becomes fun for both dog and owner. Harsh compulsive methods are not used and the use of check/choke chains are not allowed."

Companion Dog offers the following classes.
