DOG TRAINING

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 (12 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. 

Using positive, force-free, science based methods, our experienced, compassionate and highly educated trainers will guide you through the courses with clear, hands-on instruction, course teaching material and homework booklet.  Email support is available to all our students for the duration of the course.
