Dog School South Wales

Our Dog School classes are fun and interactive to help you understand exactly how your dog learns best. We train both you and your dog using positive reinforcement techniques that make learning enjoyable and motivating for everyone.

Our aim is to build fulfilling and lasting relationships between humans and their four-legged family members. We love dogs, and we love helping people discover ways to understand, communicate with, and appreciate their dogs for a lifetime.

Our team of professional instructors are formally educated in science-based training methods. Between us, we have helped thousands of dogs and their owners to enjoy happy lives together.

Trainers' profiles

Head Coach Shaun has been involved in the dog training industry for the last ten years first of all  as a volunteer. He spent 8 years as a Puppy School Tutor, and built up his own business, teaching classes 6 days a week at various venues around South Wales before coming to join Dogs Trust in early 2017. Shaun has been a member of the APDT since 2011.

Rachel has a BSc in Animal Behaviour and Welfare, an FdSc in Animal Science and has been working in dog rescue and rehoming for over six years. She began her career in Carmarthenshire’s Great Dane rescue in 2012 and has since helped train and rehome all kinds of canine – from dogs the size of small horses to little Chihuahuas who still think they’re the size of horses! She is a firm believer in positive – treats, encouragement and praise…. And when she’s had her fill of those things, she sometimes uses them to train dogs too.

Charlotte began working in Dogs Trust in 2014 where she helped train and rehome a variety of characters! She has a BSc in Zoology and previously worked with exotics, educating the public about their welfare and husbandry needs. She works hard to provide tasty Kong fillings for her two demanding Jugs, and spends her days off going on new and exciting walks with them.
