Dog School Darlington


At Dog School Darlington we offer a range of training classes for puppies, adolescent, adult dogs and rescue dogs in the local community.  Dog School is for dogs of all shapes and sizes!  We encourage force-free methods of learning and offer plenty of advice and support to help owners create a bond with their dogs in a relaxed, fun and friendly environment.
