Lifestyle Dog Training for your City Pup.
Helping our dogs to thrive in the modern city lifestyle that we have thrown them into, through fun and non-judgemental games, training and conversations.
The Office Dog came to be after our CEO and founder was witness to the potential chaos and disaster of having an unregulated ‘bring your dog to work day’ in a client’s office she was contracting in, while also training to become a dog trainer.
She soon started to realise all of the different things we expect from our dogs, especially those living in cities, but that we don’t do much to actually teach them how we want them to behave in these situations.
We started off specialising in training office dogs, but we soon realised from talking to our clients that ‘Office Dog’ was just one of many roles that we expect our dogs to fill in our lives.
*…And We Evolved*
So now we specialise in two core areas: Puppy Training and Dog Walks
If you get the basic foundations of dog training right when they’re still puppies, teach them boundaries, focus and impulse control, then they can adapt to doing almost anything with you when older.
We don’t currently offer a dog walking service, but what we do is help owners who are struggling with certain aspects of walking their dogs.
Dog walks are a key way to bond with your dog, so whether you just want to keep your arm in its socket, or you want to make walks more enjoyable for your dog, we can help.
We Aim to PEEE: Protect, Empower, Educate and Enjoy.
*Modern, Positive Training Methods*
We use positive reinforcement methods in all of our Dog Training, and everything is force-free, so you can be assured that you and your dog will be treated with kindness throughout.
We chose The Office Dog based on the look and feel of the website which is excellently put together. Added to which the online booking process is wonderfully straightforward and easy to organise. We had no idea who would turn up and were quite apprehensive so it was an extremely pleasant surprise to greet Sharon into our home. A lovely friendly woman, full of excellent advice, who we could honestly share our insecurities with over our new little terror of a Parson Terrier. Sharon’s can do attitude has given us the confidence boost we needed. More...
Great training - we really enjoyed it and Sunny has come on leaps and bounds in just a couple of days.
Really great training. Couldn't recommend enough!

A wonderful trainer who has an exceptional educational background in dog training and behavior. So much thought and care put into everything she does.
Awesome and unique service for the Londoner who would like a dog to keep them company at work!
