Blue Dog...What We Think Dog Training Should Be!

At Blue Dog, our activities are suitable for pups and dogs of all ages and they are a great way to have fun with your dog, learn together, work as a team, strengthen your relationship and provide essential mental stimulation.  

We encourage the whole family to get involved and children are welcome at our sessions.

Regardless of your dog's age, breed or training experience, whether you are looking for groups or one to one support, we are pretty sure we have an activity for you.   


What We Offer

We offer a range of group activities and courses throughout the year and update our programme with new activities regularly. 

If you're not sure if our sessions are right for you, then pop along to have a look for yourself.

Our sessions are all family friendly and not just for puppies...We encourage dogs of all ages and breeds to come along to our session and firmly believe that you can teach an old dog new tricks!

Quality Services You Can Trust

Having studied both Canine Behaviour and Advanced Level Biology, I still continue to study and undertake training to ensure my knowledge and expertise is as up to date as possible. 

In 2018 I completed my Scent Instructor training with the UK College of Scent Dogs and I am a recognised Scentwork UK trainer.

I am a full member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) and therefore work within their Code of Ethics, having successfully passed a voluntary rigorous two day assessment of my practical dog and people training skills.  Previously, I was lucky enough to be mentored by Steve Mann the world renowned dog trainer, TV regular and Chairman (and founder) of the IMDT.

I am also a member of the Pet Professional Guild British Isles having passed their strict selection process.

I am fully insured and DBS checked and only use positive, force free and reward-based training methods that are scientifically proven to work.
