Dog School Hampshire

Dog School Hampshire

Welcome to Dog School Hampshire! Dogs Trust Dog School courses are designed to help owners to understand their dogs behaviour and teach them the basic skills they need for everyday life. Like being able to relax in different settings, meeting people and / or dogs politely, having manners around food, being handled/groomed calmly, coming back when called and walking nicely on lead. Every dog is an individual and learns at different pace and our classes are kept to a maximum of six dogs, so we are able to guide each owner and their dog individually. We also help owners to understand how their dog learns and 'read' what their dog is telling them, to help prevent problem behaviours.

We are always pleased to talk to owners about what every dog needs for a happy and balanced life. Our goal is to enable owners and dogs to enjoy their lives together.

Trainers' profiles

Iain has been running his own training business training dogs and owners in a classroom and 1-2-1 setting. He is passionate about setting both owners and dogs for success, empowering them with knowledge and understanding to help them live a happy life together.


His favourite breed is the Border Collie and is currently sharing life with Bella. She can often be seen at training and behaviour seminars and workshops that Iain attends throughout the year. He enjoys working with the many different breeds that come through the classes and the diversity they bring with them.


Iain is a full assessed member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers UK (MAPDT 01248) and a registered Animal Training Instructor with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council. He is constantly attending workshops and seminars to keep his knowledge of training, behaviour and welfare up to date.

Sian is qualified with a BSc in Animal Behaviour and Welfare and has an Extended Diploma in Animal Management. Whilst studying for these, she also ran her own dog related business for the last five years. Through her business she has trained and walked many different breeds of dog and several who were nervous of people and/or dogs. Sian has a keen interest in rescue dogs, after adopting her dog Kaya eight years ago who had behavioural issues.


She enjoys helping owners build a good relationship with their dog; putting her knowledge of training into practice with puppies and of course, rescue dogs! She gets satisfaction from watching a dog's progression throughout a training course. Sian's favourite 'breed' of dogs are crossbreeds!


Sian has volunteered at the local dog training club for five years and was the Secretary to the club and Show Secretary for their Championship Obedience Show. She enjoys training her dog a variety of skills when not working with clients’ dogs. Sian also has a fondness for cats and owns four, along with Belle the chicken.

Sarah is qualified with a BSc in Animal Behaviour and Welfare and has an Extended Diploma in Animal Management. Before joining Dog School, Sarah worked at rescue centres where she has helped many dogs overcome behavioural problems such as separation anxiety and helped to find them forever homes.


She has recently adopted Callie the Lurcher and is enjoying building up her confidence around new people and situations. She enjoys watching dogs gain confidence and starting to enjoy their life choices.


Sarah used to work with a local dog trainer helping with one to ones, obedience classes and even accompanied some dogs on a photoshoot for Radley handbags.
