Dog training classes by K9Pawsitive Dog Training

K9pawsitive Dog Training is a new business to encourage owners and dogs to learn how to train themselves and their dogs whilst using positive, reward-based and fun training methods. Small classes only to ensure everyone gets the attention they deserve. Training should be fun for both owner and dog, which in turn builds a uniquely strong bond. My classes aim to teach owners and dogs how to train and build a bond using positive methods. No harsh handling, no choke chains, just fun and praise. I am qualified to judge at Kennel Club shows for Obedience at all levels, and I also judge the Kennel Club Good Citizen Tests. Contact us for bookings.

Positive, motivational, reward-based and fun dog training

For over 30 years, K9pawsitive has been training dogs in group sessions, one-on-one sessions, workshops, and courses. As professional dog trainers, we attend multiple annual training seminars and will continue to do so in the future to keep up with current training methods. We are fun-based, motivational trainers who believe in positive, force-free training approaches. We offer competitive training classes as well as workshops on a variety of training topics.
