“Fantastic training”  

"I can thoroughly recommend Adolescent Dogs, I took my Labrador to training classes with them and we completed classes from Beginners to Advanced. 

All classes are relaxed, great fun and so informative. Small classes ensure you get individual attention, help and support.

First class dog trainers, with their help, patience and kindness I have achieved great results with my dog.
Happy, well-trained dog = Happy owner :)

Thank you so very much."

"I have an 18wk old Rottweiler whom on the whole is very good but had a few issues with him regarding sleeping and being left on is own. I attend the classes which are so beneficial to myself as well as my dog because Adolescent Dogs teach the owner as well as the dog the correct way to train and are very patient as sometimes the owners do not always get it right.

He attended a week residential training course and from start to finish all the staff where fantastic. The work they did with him left me speechless as he learnt so much in a short space of time and the issues he had have disappeared. The ground work they have put in place with him is exceptional as on his first night home slept in his crate all night.

I cannot thank Adolescent Dogs enough for all their hard work and patience they have shown the both of us and would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for training classes or residential stay for their dogs.

Thank you so much to all the satff at Adolescent Dogs you truly are amazing!!!!"
