Flexible training options for busy lives

We help you to have the dog that gets compliments from strangers

R+ Dog and Cat Training provides flexible training options to fit in with your busy life with life-long training customised for your dog, cat – or any other companion animal.


Dog training options

You can create your own pathway and follow our courses through from the initial advice before you buy your dog to helping your dog to cope with ageing – via Puppy Start Right, Teenage Tearaways, Rock Solid Rover and our Activity Courses.

The more sessions you book upfront, the more savings you make and R+ Dog Training can even do some of the work for you with our Walk and Train option. We even offer a monthly Social Dog Walk so that you can practice in an informal setting with a trainer on hand to offer advice.

We know that one size doesn’t fit all; you and your dog are unique. Whether you choose private training or small group sessions, R+ Dog Training provides personal attention that is just right for you.

Private Sessions

Private sessions can make it easier for you to learn at your own pace and focus on exactly what you need when you need it. They are also are suitable for dogs that haven’t yet learned how to cope with a group class. Private sessions are backed up with regular handouts that build into a training manual and are supported by e-mail and telephone contact between sessions. We start in your home and then work in the real world where you need the most help.

Choose from one-off sessions and options that take you from pre-purchase advice to senior dog – via a fun range of activities. You can make savings by choosing longer courses, by choosing additional options or by booking two or more courses up-front. You can even customise your own option by selecting a course plus a workshop or add-on option. The more you choose, the more you save, and you can be confident that you and your companion will be guided through, proven, effective and fun training in the way that suits you best.

Read on or follow our simple guide to choosing the best dog training for you.

Small Group Sessions

R+ Dog Training is delighted to have been invited to provide exclusive dog training sessions in a brand new community venture, Blondin Park Pavilion, Brentford in conjunction with On Kew Dog Training. Charlotte and Nada are two of only three graduates of the prestigious Karen Pryor Academy Professional Dog Training course in London with fewer than 2,000 graduates worldwide.

When you book a group session, you will be able to take advantage of two highly qualified professional trainers in each course.

Sessions are limited to four dogs with plenty of space so that you and your dog can relax and learn in a calm, stress-free environment. Puppies learn all of the basic behaviours they need in Puppy Start Right and can then graduate to the Acing Adolescence classes where they can learn the life skills they need to get through the difficult teenage months. Clever Canines classes teach good manners and practice for real-world situations such as going to the vet or a café. There is plenty of time for questions so that you can enjoy fear and force free training that will work for you and your dog where you need it most – in the real world. Each session is self-contained, so you don’t have to wait  for a new course to begin – just join as soon as there is a space available.

We set you and your dog up to succeed and have fun
