Special Training Activities For Pups and Dogs

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 are more than welcome to bring family and friends along so that everyone can join in the fun!  If you are not sure if our sessions are for you, then these sessions are a great option for you to try them out.

A group environment is not necessarily a suitable option for some dogs.  Contact us if your dog is nervous 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.

Thanks for a fun session today, Alfie has pretty much slept since we got back.  We use a clicker a lot but not free clicking like the hoop work, looking forward to exploring that with him some more.  Highly recommend this session.

Wasn't sure what to expect & thought only certain breeds would manage it - total misconception. Daisy (Shar Pei pup) and I had a brilliant time. 
The emphasis on the day was all about having FUN with our dogs - and we certainly had that! Daisy loved every minute and had a smile on her face all day.  If you're looking to have more fun time with your dogs don't hesitate to try this.

Absolutely loved Search and Sniff.  It was a lovely and informal, yet safe and secure environment for the dogs to have fun and socialises.  Already booked up for more and really looking forward to it.  Can't recommend Blue Dog Canine Services enough.

Myself and my Labradoodle really enjoyed the Baby Come Back session. There was positive encouragement for both owners and dogs and not once did I feel judged or inadequate for either me or my dog not getting or understanding something the first time.  We have learned the foundations of a good recall and can now go away and practise at home.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It!

We tried the taster sessions with our little staffie at the weekend and both me and him thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Karen and Phil are great with the dogs, but are equally good with people too!  We'll definitely be back and have already been recommending the place!

We really enjoyed Tricks and Treats and it was easier than I thought to teach an old dog new tricks! It was very welcoming and we really enjoyed the session.

Ted, Tom and I really enjoyed the Baby Come Back session. It was organised, fun and very friendly. The venue was clean and tidy with ample car parking. I would highly recommend your training classes.

Took both of my dogs to Baby Come Back. My puppy absolutely loved it. Would highly recommend this fun training. My older dog loved it too and took it in her stride. Lovely atmosphere, fun day and Karen is brilliant with all the dogs.
Dawn, Penny the Westie and Buddy the Shih Tzu
We really enjoyed the session. Both dogs were engaged and Karen and Phil made us feel really welcome and at ease. They were both  friendly and understood that my reactive dogs needed plenty of space. I would recommend Blue Dog to any of my friends considering dog training sessions. This has really whetted my appetite for more!
