Happy Clients,
Happy Puppies

Abbie offers a fantastic service to Puppies and their humans. She gives you the tools to create a fantastic foundation for a happy, confident pup. Her classes were fun but informative and as an added bonus she backs it all up with literature at the end of each session.
Abbie is a breath of fresh air! Fun, enthusiastic and so passionate about puppy training. A true professional with a natural love and understanding of dogs and their different behaviours. My little Pookie and I have had the best time over the last 4 weeks at puppy classes where we were learning new tricks and ways of making training both fun and practical. I cannot thank you enough Abbie, we will miss you lots! Pookie will miss the Princess ball pit!
Thoroughly recommend Abbie's Dog Academy. If you have a new puppy and looking for a puppy class, this is the one to choose. Abbie is great with the dogs, has great advice and provides very useful training literature after each class. The pups are all well catered for in each class too with relevant training exercises but keeping it fun at the same time. Great class.
