Welcome to Somerset Dog Training
Somerset Dog Training uses reward-based training methods whereby the dog is set up to succeed and then rewarded for performing the ‘good’ behaviour (positive reinforcement).
Sue and Mandy keep up to date with modern training therapies and techniques by attending practical and academic courses. They are both members of the Kennel Club Accredited Instructors scheme working towards accreditation. They also regularly complete dog first aid training courses.
