(Feel very welcome to have a chat with me - any time, including weekends/bank holidays - and visit Club with your dog)


Or, if you and your dog have previous experience elsewhere, and feel ready for an INTERMEDIATE Class, please contact me ...

My aim is to Inspire, Motivate and Encourage in the art of fulfilling the 'Parenting'/Leading/Guiding role in any dog's life - that helps you the 'Pet Parent' Improve, Progress and Achieve good well-balanced control, interaction and obedience with their dog .....

..... and for the dog to feel confident knowing that his/her Pet Parent can take good charge of the social family unit appropriately .......... dogs need to rely on good guiding leadership from an Owner aiming to be a good 'parenting figure'.


With NO treats, toys or clickers required (and NO Alpha Rolls either)! - Why should these be considered necessary? .... If a dog's motivation to respond is based on something tasty or a toy, then what is more important, you or the treat? ..... And if someone else has a more tasty treat, who might your dog prefer to respond to???


Surely, YOU are the most important part of your dog's life, so why try and convince him/her that something else is instead??? Surprised



Relating between Human to Canine ... This is the area that unfortunately and unintentionally can be misunderstood, resulting in confusion between Owner and dog.� However, learning to reach and become part of their world, brings them closer to ours. Smile


Group Club Classes (all Levels) at Merrow and Normandy / Private Visit / Puppy Training ...... for details and Price List see under 'CLASSES'.

(Also available as a Guest Trainer (date allowing) - one-off, temporary or semi-regular).


Plus incorporating focus on dog behaviour and 'dog good manners' within the Class too! - Learning and training provides a binding language of communication - spending time this way is enjoyable to feel the bond strengthen between you both.


"This is more than a business to me, as my clients will support. It is a committed passion for the very way of the dog, that I feel privileged to share, and which the Club is focused upon."
- Chris


If you want more from your training together - then look no further!

Learning a dog's way of thinking is interesting and challenging, plus far more productive and enjoyable for you both.

....... Give your dog an evening out to enjoy using his/her mind to interact with you. Smile


Whether this is your 'first-time' or just plain 'rusty'! - You and your dog will NOT be bored.� (Neither will you feel awkward or embarrassed - I want you to enjoy the experience of learning together)


Develop yourself as a good reliable, guiding, and responsible leading member of your dog's human social family.

Training is not teaching 'Tricks'!  It is interactive communication between you both.

Thinking dog - and being a beneficial role model that your dog needs! By doing so, developing understanding trust and respect between you. What a combination!


Respect is highly valued by dogs, and special within the relationship.� Both you and your dog respecting each other.� But far better that you earn that respect, rather than try to buy it from your dog - your dog can tell the difference!

We are politely proud and confident to be unrivaled in dog training that does NOT teach dogs to just Perform, but teaches Owners to Connect. - Training with a dog's Brain


Do you really want a dog to merely Respond/Perform for a treat or toy?  Or your dog to be more aware and responsive within their family unit? The dog's 'family social unit' works and supports together, with supervising 'parenting leadership'.

Paws for Thought

If Owners have a passion and enjoyment of the dog, then would this be best demonstrated in a commitment to understand their way of thinking and communicating, and looking to emulate that to the best of our ability?
