Having a dog in school is becoming very popular for many reasons. The benefits are often surprising and include wellbeing for both staff and pupils, behaviour support and developing personal attitudes. We know Headteachers want the reassurance and peace of mind that introducing a dog to their school, will be safe and successful and School Of Dogs can offer these things and more. We offer a school dog training package, that is fully certified and accredited. We will take you through the initial risk assessments, dog training, introducing the dog to the school building, pupils and staff, training the dog to “work” in school as a  valued team member.  ​If you work within a School and would like us to help you train your dog to become a certified school dog, please email our school dog coordinator :



At School of Dogs, we believe the most engaging and beneficial way to train your dog is to use positive dog training techniques. This fun based methods keep your dog interested and eager to learn. It allows you, the owner, to reward the behaviours you want to encourage and ignore unwanted behaviours.

We welcome all breeds, ages and sizes of dogs. You will receive the must up to date training methods, as we have had rigorous and comprehensive examinations and inspections to become part of the VICTORIA STILWELL Positive dog training team,  member of the Professional Pet Guild, Pro Dog Trainer with Absolute Dogs, Degree in Canine Communication and Dog Training.

Denise & Lulu 

While I have had dogs most of my adult life Lulu was a huge learning curve. A cocker spaniel was new to me and I feel I have nearly had to go back to basics (a few times). The Dog club has given me an insight to my behaviour and how I interact with Lulu, and how to get the best from her, we are still learning & strengthening our bond. 


You are with like minded people, who value their relationships with their dogs and don’t judge you if you get it wrong.  The regular meetings help us to keep on track and we continue to learn as our dogs have fun and continue to thrive. 

Lynn, Ross & Zanda

We’d never done puppy classes before nothing knowing what to expect, very dubious. But from our first few minutes in our first lesson we knew we were at the right place. Your lessons have been invaluable to us, we’ve learnt so much about training and also about ourselves as puppy owners to a big breed. 

Zanda, loved his classes, socialising with various breeds of other puppies. 

We can not thank you enough for your time and knowledge and can’t wait to attend junior classes in a few weeks.


Louise & Loki

School of dogs puppy school had been a great support to us and Loki, he loved meeting new pups too. Lee is understanding and any feedback/advice given was delivered in a supportive way that helped boost our confidence with our puppy. We will certainly be returning for further training in the future and recommend school of dogs for anyone seeking guidance. Thank you Lee!


We'd love to hear from you
