Housetraining Tips from Developing Dogs



Sian is hugely encouraging and takes great trouble to adjust the activity to the level of your dog and to plan each session. The class sizes are small and this allows for good communication, a lot of attention and time to learn or develop the skills being shown. Sian is a masterful teacher; she has been instrumental in enabling us to enjoy our boisterous Cockapoo in so many ways and we are proud that Rosa is a Developing Dog!

Rosa the Cockapoo

Hugely recommended! Developing Dogs helped me turn a miserable dog ownership in to a respectful, joyful and wonderful one. Rupert is a highly strung, intelligent dog and no previous attempts to find a good relationship with him had been fruitful. Working with Developing Dogs has transformed my relationship with Rupert, I still use all the tips, hints and techniques that I was taught 18 months ago – if ever things start to go awry I go right back to what I was taught and we are soon sorted.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for last Sunday and The Dog Particle course. Thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt so much. I have been telling anyone who will listen about it all week!
