At Tails and Peaks we are a little different to traditional dog training.

If you want to learn how to understand your dogs individual needs and train them using kind, fun games then your in the right place!

We look at your dogs individual needs and adapt our training to be enable YOU and your dog to get real life results!

Our training is split into two key aspects..fun practical training using games and understanding, enabling owners to really understand their individual dogs needs.

By using games in our training we achieve real life dog training skills that are fun for both the dog and owner! Win win!

We have a variety of dog training options; one to one training, online training, workshops, seminars and fusion training and we also host a number of workshops featuring some of the top dog trainers in the UK.

Our aim is to transform the relationship you have with your dog through understanding, play, training and fun! Our training puts YOU at the center of your dogs world! No more battling against distractions, we train dogs who pick their owners over everything!

I only ever use positive, fun and reward based training. Every dog is an individual and I pride myself on adapting the training to suit their specific needs and struggles.
