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 for dogs of all ages and abilities.
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.
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.
Classes for puppies, juniors and adult dogs plus their humans. Held in Kendal and Crooklands. The Crooklands classes alternate between an indoor venue in the winter and outdoor venue in summer, getting the best of both worlds.
Have fun with your dog doing activities that come naturally and see how clever your dog is. Build a good working relationship that benefits your general training too. Activities include fun agility, search and find games, useful tricks and other brain games for mental stimulation.
Individual sessions in the comfort of your own home or out on location may be more beneficial than attending classes in certain situations. Or you may just prefer more personalised attention and support.
