The Barky Bunch Club


Please note - due to Covid 19 restrictions we cannot guarantee that all of our training classes will be able to take place in exactly the way they would in normal times. However we are continuing with all of our training classes, which may include a combination of in-person 1-2-1 training, group classes and video classes.

Contented Canines Training School

Does your dog bark or lunge at other dogs or people on walks? Or both?! Are dog walks scary and stressful because you are worried about what your dog might do? You want to be able to enjoy relaxed and happy walks with your dog without constantly looking over your shoulder and checking round corners to see what potential threats lie ahead.

We have first hand experience of how stressful and upsetting it is to walk a dog when you are terrified of coming across another dog or person for fear of your dogs reaction. I trained my own dog Joey with a range of different techniques with complete success, and I have spent the last few years sharing these techniques with other dog owners with brilliant results. Rachel has worked with her own dog Bonnie with the same issues.

I always wished that there was a class which I could take Joey to work on his issues and meet other owners in similar situations. Regular dog training classes are usually too busy and stressful for Barky Bunchers (both owners and dogs!) And so the Barky Bunch Club came about, which Rachel then attended with Bonnie!

Rachel has now completed her training with the IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers) and is now able to teach my Barky Bunch Course.

This course is only suitable for dogs who are currently training with or have previously trained with Contented Canines Training School. The 6 week course will have a maximum of 4 dogs and are designed to complement and follow on from the exercises we have practiced with you on our home training sessions.

These sessions will allow us to work in a safe, controlled environment on structured set ups designed to get the best results out of your dog training, so that you can out it into practice in the real world!

Alongside our small group classes we also offer a Facebook support group for all members, where you can post for advice and tips from our trainers and to arrange meet ups with other members!
