Dog ownership is extremely fun and rewarding, they love you unconditionally and are always pleased to see you. However an untrained dog can make life difficult, it becomes stressful and the fun is gone.  You often see lovely dogs end up in the dog shelters because of their behaviours which could have been sorted by training.

At Four Small Paws we offer training on site through one of our partnered experienced Trainers.

We also offer workshops in the evenings and on weekends on the basics of dog care, training and dog health. See below for what courses are coming up
