Meet Our Team

All our trainers are qualified and accredited with specialist fields.

Did you know that our industry is unregulated and you can call yourself a dog trainer with no professional qualifications? With so many quick online courses available, we only accept trainers who have completed the in-depth APDT qualification and successfully completed all their practical assessments.

Continued Development

Our most common questions

Refresher Courses

We regularly attend or complete APDT courses so we are up to date with the latest scientifically backed training methods.


In addition to APDT, our trainers study with other reputable accreditation's and courses, such as the IMDT. All our trainers are qualified in dog first aid.

Speciality Subjects

Our trainers complete special courses in subjects like Scentwork UK in order to teach scentwork and attend progressive workshops.

Class Assistants

Our class assistants are aspiring trainers about to or currently studying. We also provide work experience through local colleges.
