Dog School Dorset

Welcome to Dog School Dorset!

We offer fun and friendly classes for puppies, adults and rescue dogs in your local area. All classes are aimed at teaching your dog skills that are useful in everyday life. We want you to have a strong and healthy bond with your dog and enjoy each other’s company.

In addition to group classes we organise seminars, for example Firework Fear, and workshops such as summer holiday family dog training classes!

In our training we use positive reinforcement for both dogs and people so prepare to have a lot of fun!
