We had one to one dog behaviour sessions for our rescue dog and Sarah was fab. Really good practical advice that was easy to follow. We have seen a lot of improvement with our rescue dog thanks to Sarah. Would highly recommend. More...
Mulberry and I have just completed the reactive dog classes with Sarah and what a difference it has made!! In week one Mulberry barked at all of the other dogs but by the final week she could enter the arena and even approach the other dog without making a sound!
It's like I left with a different dog!!
Sarah is very a patient trainer and has a great knowledge and understanding of different breeds and their possible issues. We learnt many different skills and ways to deal with various situations.
I would definitely recommend dogskool to anyone considering training their four legged friends. More...
We really enjoyed the Recall workshop on Wednesday. Fergus was so excited to be with other dogs, play with toys and receive praise and treats, he didn't even realise he was being trained! Sarah is a great trainer who gives you all the tools to work with, so that you can continue with the training outside the classes. Thank you so much, Dogskool! More...
Fabulous recall class today....gone away with renewed enthusiasm with Bear....thank you

Trained both my dogs. Would recommend to everybody. Lovely place and lovely people
We have just completed puppy class and what a wonderful experience it's been.
Sarah is very knowledgable and informative - explaining things in an extremely easy and fun way to understand.
We started out the six week course with Ianto only wanting to do his own thing, ignoring most of our commands - but thanks to Dogskool we now have a very responsive puppy, doing all of the basics (and more) on command - as long as there are treats involved! (We're still working on that!) :D
Thank you Sarah & team! More...
I took my Cockapoo puppy here, it was great and we still use the training now. We also do the agility which is equally as good and great fun for the dogs �. I would highly recommend dogskool
Approachable, knowledgeable and fun! We thoroughly enjoyed our puppy obedience classes, such a brilliant way for our dog to learn some new skills, meet other dogs, and for us both to develop our bond together. Sarah and her team were always on hand with any questions we had, and we felt welcomed from the start. We'll be back soon. Absolutely worth the journey from Manchester! More...
Attended a recall workshop today with our little dog Poppy. Fantastic highly recommend. Great clear instruction, good tips and opportunity to ask questions.

Very friendly, welcoming and fun. Amber loved it as much as I did. Fantastic recall strategies. Not expecting it to work overnight but I have every faith my pup will have perfect recall if I put into practice all I've learnt today. Thank you Dogskool - I shall definitely be booking other sessions with you. More...
I highly recommend the puppy classes. Not only great for puppy socialisation but the methods taught were invaluable. The learning extends beyond the one hour sessions as there’s lots to practice at home. They really helped get my puppy’s ‘sit, lie down, wait, stay and recall’ down perfectly. He’s now five-months-old and comes every time I call him off the lead! More...
I have taken both my British bulldogs to Dogskool puppy classes and fun classes. A breed that are known for being hard to train they have been welcomed at dogskool and have thrived on the positive methods used to become very competent at obiendiance and trick training . I would reccomemd Dogskool to any dog owner. More...
Dogskool is an amazing experience for your dog & yourself, they support you 100% as they are informing you of your moves & actions they are walking around giving you guidance and encouragement. We would highly recommend Dogskool to everyone � we & Belle � have throughly enjoyed our time there, in fact that much that we have booked onto another course. More...
We took our 9month rescue Lab along to the Puppy/Beginners class and he absolutely loved it.
The arena was safe and secure and the classes were a nice size for socialising the dogs. The trainers were really knowledgable and approachable and gave us great personalised tips on what to work on with our dog.
On week 1 he was an absolute hooligan, but he’s now transformed into little superstar, we’re delighted!
Thanks Sarah & the team x More...
We really enjoy bringing Lola to dog skool for puppy beginners class, the trainers are all really good and helpful, Lola walks so good on her lead when we take her for walks and she doesn’t pull, everyone always says how good she is when we walk her and she is well socialise and is friendly with other dogs, we love how knowledgeable the trainers are and always take their advice on board thank you :)
We think Sarah is amazing! We have been taking Oscar our cocker spaniel to a class for years now. The atmosphere is very relaxed but Sarah supports all the dogs and owners. From the way Oscar was to how he is now is definitely a credit to Dogskool and Sarah. Unfortunately at the moment Oscar is having physio and Sarah has been amazing recommending where to go and has put Oscar first rather than expecting us to still attend the classes. My husband Jake loves going every week and hopefully Oscar will be able to carry on soon. Highly recommended to anyone with a dog. Thanks Sarah � More...
We attended the 'feisty fido' course for reactive dogs as our rescue had a lot of nervous agression due to being unsocialised as a pup.
Within about 10 days we could notice a massive difference! He was more attentive on walks and instead of worrying when another dog was around I was calm because i knew he wanted his bit of cheese more than the dog!
Now nearly a month on we can walk past dogs and cats on the opposite side of the road - previously impossible with cats! And he seems happier - next stage is for him to be able to ge closer! But baby steps!
Sarah also gave me some help afterwards as he like to "playbite" - which hurts as he is nearly 3! Within a week - doesnt even try it!
Brilliant! Would recommed to anyone - as soon as he is 100% he will be going to agility classes!! More...
I have attended several of Sarahs classes and I have 2 very different personality dogs. I have a very nervous rescue who attended puppy class and he passed with flying colours! He suffers from nervous aggression so has attended her Feisty Fidos class, Sarah really helped me understand what was happening with him and we went a long way with helping him with his fears, she taught me how to help him going forward. My other dog is completely opposite and we have attended Mondays 'Dog Club' for couple of years now, she absolutely loves it! Her training has really improved, and is all done in a fun and positive way. We have also attended the Sunday 'Flyball' class and have gone on to compete. Sarahs classes are fun for both dog and human and would highly recommend them no matter what your dog's needs are. More...
Attended the recall class today - fabulous. Great guidance and advice that I need to keep putting into practice. Would highly recommend and my pooch is out cold right now he’s so tired
Puppy class � today we practised lead walking, recall on a long line, stay, sit, lie and change direction x new tricks to practise for next week are jumping over my leg and spin � such good fun and great training x my daughter and I enjoy the time together to build our confidence and have great fun x the staff are friendly, helpful and offer great support and it’s lovely to make puppy friends too �
Puppy classes and the recall workshop were brilliant, we also go along to their regular dog club which Monty really enjoys. 5 stars for every class we've done. More...
Very helpful and understanding with a difficult situation. Really made a difference.
