Dog School Dorset

Welcome to Dog School Dorset!

Here at Dog School Dorset, we offer friendly classes for Puppies, Adolescents, 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.  Our classes never have more than six dogs and have at least two trainers to make sure that we can devote time to each individual and help you progress.  We use science-led, reward-based training to make sure that we get the best results, and have lots of fun whilst doing so!

We also run seminars on a variety of topics so check back for information on exciting events happening near you!
