"Country pooch are the BEST in the business. Wilson started off going to daycare which he loves, (so much so he doesn’t want to leave!!) it’s lovely knowing he is getting lots of stimulation whilst I am working. We’ve just finished the adolescence course with Steve, he is a fantastic trainer very knowledgeable and attentive. I feel I have learnt a lot and grown in confidence with training Wilson. Thanks Country Pooch you are amazing"

What is dog behaviour? Everything your dog does would be classed as behaviour. Some good which we like, some bad which we don’t. However your dog does it all for the same reason, to get something out of it. If we keep this in mind everything your dog does is RIGHT!
Country Pooch Training Walks
Our popular training walks are ideal for owners wanting training advice in real world situations. Country pooch reveal the location upon booking and walks are approximately 1.5 hours. Country pooch trainers will be on hand throughout the walk to discuss any issues as well as provide demonstrations and give training advice. Training walks are about controlled socialisation and therefore all dogs remain on lead. Taking place on the third Saturday of each month.
