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

Emily trained as a vet before realising that her true passion lay in helping owners train and bond with their dogs. After several years living in SE Asia, working with everything from fluffy pups to aggressive street dogs, Emily returned to the UK and joined the Dog School team.

When not training her dogs or other people’s, Emily can usually be found hiking on a windswept hill!

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.

Kate joined the team after working in a luxury boarding kennels for nearly three years. Not only did she take excellent care of the doggy holidayers, she also worked with strays and rescue dogs and still found time to train and qualify as a dog groomer and set up her own grooming business! In her spare time she enjoys travelling around the UK showing Tibetan Mastiffs and going on adventures with her three Malamute/Husky combos (affectionately known as The Fluffy Bums!).

Dog School Cambridgeshire Lola the lovable #collie struggles controlling her excitement around people! She just wants to be as close and near to them as possible, which generally, unfortunately, means jumping up at them. Here Lola's owner did a superb job helping keep Lola calm as a door opened and our lovely #volunteer Jenny appeared at the door and said hello. #shewasajumper . . . . #dogstagram #dog #dogtrainer #ilovemyjob #dogstrust #dogschool #cambridgeshire #dogs_of_instagram #doggo #cute #peterborough #yaxley #colliesofinstagram #dogoftheday #weeklyfluff #petscorner #petstagram #instadog
