Our Wonder Dog training courses are designed to bring out the best in your pet dog or new rescue dog!
Our foundation 4-week training courses are perfect for adult dogs (8 months+) with no previous training (or just home-schooled basics) who would benefit from learning good manners and canine life skills. We also welcome new rescue dogs and their owners - training is a great confidence booster for your new dog and starts you both on the road to developing a strong bond.
Our experienced, friendly and dedicated trainers will guide you through the courses with clear, hands-on instruction, weekly teaching material and homework sheets throughout the courses. Email and telephone support is available to all our students.
