Behavioural and Obedience Training for Dogs and Puppies. Turn those ears on without using food treats.

Is your dog driving you a little bit crazy? Feeling like their ears might be for decoration only? Or maybe you’re about to welcome a new puppy or dog into your home, and want to get them off to the best start possible?

You’ve come to the right place…

We’ll teach you the skills to get them to listen to you, even when there’s something more exciting going on, and show you how to get those ears turned on, even when they can’t smell food in your pocket. We can help you address behavioural issues, including jumping, biting, pulling on the lead, or even barking and lunging at other dogs on walks. All by using a simple, effective communication system which means you and your dog are finally speaking the same language.

Imagine having a dog who can be taken places without causing embarrassment, greet guests calmly, go for walks without pulling your arm off, and hang out with the family without being a pain - a dog who is the best mate you imagined they would be when you first brought them home. If this sounds like what you’re looking for, check out our programmes page to see how we can help you and get in touch for a free consult.

“This is the best and most effective dog training I have ever seen! We adopted a 10 month old Labrador who had come from a breeder with zero rules. He would jump, bite, push his way through, eat [kids] toys and toilet inside. We got a treats based trainer in which was unsuccessful and then we found Grace. It’s been 3 weeks since we started the training and he is a different dog!! Even our 3yr old daughter can ‘control’ him with the commands. Money very well spent and I cannot speak highly enough about the training.”
