Our Fun, Tricks and Training Programme

We want you to have a great experience, and that is why we use spacious, "real-life" outdoor venues wherever possible and keep our groups relatively small in numbers. This means your dog will have plenty of space if they need it and they will meet other dogs in a controlled and safe way.

You will benefit from individual support throughout our sessions, and we tailor exercises to suit each pup or dog regardless of age, breed or previous experience.

You are more than welcome to bring family and friends along so that everyone can join in the fun!

A group environment is not necessarily a suitable option for some dogs.  Contact us if your dog is nervous, anxious or reactive please to discuss what best suits your pup or dogs needs.  

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or if you want to find out more.  If you want to see what we do for yourself, just pop along and view one of our activities in action - no appointment needed.


Fun, Tricks and Training Bronze

At our Fun, Tricks and Training Courses you will learn how to train the essential safety cues and life skills you'll need everyday.  We also build in some lovely enrichment activities such as nosework, baby agility and trick training.

  • Tuesday 24 April 6.15pm at Swalwell Cricket Club

The five hour Fun, Tricks and Training Bronze Certificate is perfect for vaccinated puppies and dogs with little or no training experience or as a refresher. 

It is suitable for almost all pups over 18 weeks, if your puppy is younger, the Pawsitive Puppy Foundations would be a great choice.  If your pup has completed Pawsitive Puppy Foundations, then this is a great next step!

We'll cover all of the essential training cues you will need in everyday life, including name recognition, recall, loose lead walking,heelwork, emergency  stop, stay, leave it, wait, drop it, take it, no jumping, automatic focus, sit, down and stand up and go to a spot.  We also do fun activities too such as nosework and trick training.

If your dog is reactive, anxious or fearful please contact us to discuss the different options available to you.

Karen and Phil show so much passion and love what they do. Jac has come such a long way since starting the Bronze Course. All sessions have been backed up with weekly factsheets which makes it easy to practice at home.

Hi Karen and Phil Thank you so much for yet another fabulous training course. We had a great time learning new ways of looking after our puppy and with your help she is growing into a confident and happy dog. She loved the mental stimulation and was always excited when we pulled into the car park to start another session! Looking forward to the gold training course next!

I had a great experience on Silver as I learnt a lot more in depth training techniques to help Alfie. I do the training at home, and he is making real progress.

I'd like to thank Karen and Phil for their their support with my mobility issues

Don't Just Take Our Word For It!

Sidney and I thoroughly enjoyed our bronze fun, tricks and training sessions.  There was lots packed in, but it never felt rushed or overwhelming. 
Very informative but relaxed and fun training sessions
