With the nation now in Lockdown and following Government guidance all my ‘in person’ activities are now cancelled. However, where possible I am aiming to provide services ‘remotely’ so I have taken my services Online. I am running the ‘At Home’ Puppy and Junior Classes over video link with Zoom. I am also available for Individual Training and Advice Consultations over Zoom or Skype or even just the good old phone. Please get in touch so we can see how I can be of help in these challenging times of the Covid pandemic.
Considering the current Covid situation these remote services may be necessary for longer than we may think. I will aim to continue to help you remotely until the restrictions ease and it is safer for us to meet in person.

Stay safe and well!

Good Start Dog Training provides Pet Dog Training and Behaviour Advice in and around Kendal, South Cumbria, North Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales.
One to one training is available to meet your individual needs as well as a variety of group classes for dogs of all ages and abilities.
The training classes are held in Kendal at the Castle Street Centre and Crooklands (by junction 36 of the M6). Our Crooklands summer venue is Lane Farm at the Westmorland County Show Field and the winter venue is at the Preston Patrick Memorial Hall. The Crooklands venues are handy for Milnthorpe, Kirkby Lonsdale, Grange and surrounding areas.
Our aim is for you to build a good relationship with your dog based on mutual respect, trust and cooperation. All training methods are kind, fair and effective: we don’t use methods based on punishment that scare or frighten your dog. By supporting both ends of the lead you too will gain confidence and motivation with your dog’s training.
I only take a small number of dogs in each class so that you have more individual attention and classes are more relaxed and fun, which makes for better learning all around.
Good Start Dog Training is recommended by the local Veterinary practices! Please look around the website to see how I can help you and your dog.
