Obedience group classes, based on the Good Citizen Dog Scheme Awards, for puppies and Adult Dos in Middleton Cheney, Northamptonshire/Oxfordshire border.

A place you can meet new friends in a relaxed atmosphere and learn about how dogs learn, making the relationship between you and your dog stronger and meaningful. Training should be fun for the dog with no use of intimidation or bullying. We use reward based training methods which make training possible for all the family.


We want dogs to do things because they want to, not because they have to.  By giving a dog time to assess a situation we allow them to develop their own skills rather than us telling them what they should do.


A trained dog is a happier dog living with a happier owner.
