Training plus offers kind and effective training for your dog. All aspects of training and dog care is covered getting the best from your dog and letting them learn at their own speed.

It is an established, small, friendly club with the main aim of helping all owners and their dogs, from new puppies to dogs with behavioural problems. Many of the owners make new friends and meet up for dog walks etc. In the twenty plus years it has been running no-one has ever been asked to leave or been put on the side-lines because their dog has been disruptive.

Dogs and Puppies are dealt with sympathetically according to their temperament , shy timid dogs are easily put off and bold dogs can soon take advantage.

Classes range from Puppy through Bronze, Silver and Gold Good Citizen Scheme to Competitive Obedience, Gundog training and Ringcraft for beginners. The whole family and especially children are welcome at all classes so that everyone learns how to interact with their dog.

I have training and behaviour qualifications from Writtle Agricultural College and I am a member of the Kennel Club Accredited Instructors Scheme. This means I have to keep up to date with the latest training methods and new thinking on the behaviour front.

I have over twenty years experience of helping people with their dogs and have spent even longer training and competing in Obedience with my German Shepherds. I am now training Springer Spaniels to work as Gundogs, compete in Scurries and take part in Gundog Tests.

What to Expect

A friendly greeting.

We want you to feel welcome and that you can ask any question without being talked down to.


Genuine concern.

Having trained many dogs over a lot of years I do realise that dogs do not follow set patterns.

Any problems will be dealt with, no-one has ever been asked to leave.


Professional service.

I have qualifications from Writtle Agricultural College in Dog Training, Management and Behaviour and I am a member of the Kennel Club Accredited Instructors Scheme. I will provide the expert care you and your dog deserves.

All Dogs Big and Small

The size of your dog has no bearing on its trainability
