We provide dog and puppy training by classes, one to one and home visits in Southampton
“ Amazing, really can't express how much my pup has changed ”
“ I and Eddie have learned a lot and have appreciated your professionalism, fun and some times harsh words. ”
“ The trainers are so friendly and helpful, they really are a credit to your team! ”
“ This is all thanks to the amazing training you taught us, worth every penny and a lot more. We now have the most gorgeous, loyal family dog ”
“ Wanted to say 'thanks', you may have saved Rosies life today... ”
“ AA dog training you are the dogs nuts when it comes to training! ”
“ THANK YOU VERY MUCH…YOU ARE THE BEST ”
“ My mum says she gained so much knowledge from your brilliant team and that’s great for me, cos now we can ‘talk’ to each other and I know what she wants me to do. ”
“ When my mum says I’ve come on in ‘leaps and bounds’ I hope she notices how well behaved I am, as well as my agility skills. ”
“ My mum and dad used to spend a lot of time getting cross with me and I didn’t know why. Now we just have loads of fun together. ”
“ Off I go to the park to play with my friends, then I come to AA Dog Training classes and I find so many of them come here too. ”
“ My Dad is always telling people in the park how well behaved there dog is and they always say, ‘ we go to AA Dog Training.’ That’s where we go too. ”
“ I love people coming to visit us at home. They always tell mum and dad how much better behaved I am, then I get a treat. ”
“ I have a variety of strangers come up to me and complement me on how well behaved Teddy is! so a big thank you. ”
“ Can I just take this opportunity to thank you; the classes have been fantastic and will be greatly missed. I have learnt a great deal, which benefits Percy (I read somewhere about training the trainer, not the dog!) . ”
“ You and your team are wonderful and I will most certainly be keeping up everything that you and Sarah have taught me! ”
“ I’ve been to 3 or 4 different training classes ……. but yours is definitely the best. ”
“ I must say she (and I) are really enjoying the training and I think she did surprisingly well in the 'test' today - and it was fun! ”
Very small group classes will run at 2m apart. Arrival and departure will be managed by the team. There will be no contact with you during the sessions so all puppies and young dogs MUST have your own training line. You can buy them from us in advance if needed.
“Why Come to Us?”
Dog and puppy training with us is not only effective but great fun too! It’s positive for both you and your pup and works on teaching our dogs to live in harmony with us. We know we are different but don’t just take our word for it.

Here’s what Mike has to say about our 8 week puppy programme,
‘As we have now finished eight weeks of puppy training, i will be the first to admit i thought i knew how to train a dog, but i will hold my hand up and state that i knew absolutely nothing!!’
We really will show you ways of training your dog or puppy that will strengthen your bond, not break it. We’re not pretending it’s easy. It’s not. You need to put the work in but we will show you how to do it.
Lots of back up each week in between classes, videos on our website, all course materials are written up online as a reminder for you each week. We are always on the end of the phone or email for support.
Take a look at some of the photos people send us of their dogs or pups, either happily tired after class or out and about having a great time or even doing some training in the park.
You might just want to complete an initial dog or puppy training course or you might want to carry on climbing our Tree of Achievement. Some of our very first customers continue training with us and now they are at the top of the tree.
What’s on offer?
Puppy under 6 months
Puppy one to one service is available. This can be a full one to one training programme or we can do a one off video call to support you in the early days, followed by our 8 week face to face course or our online puppy training programme.
Any dog or puppy 7 months or over
If your dog or puppy is 7 months or over, we offer one to one services for helping to change your dog’s behaviour if group work isn’t appropriate or we have our 6 week, basic training programme, that we call Fresh Start.
Training is outdoors as we firmly believe it is the only effective way to do puppy training & dog training. Come and see how it works …..
If you can get focus and motivation from your dog or puppy out in a field with his mates and all those smells then getting the behaviour indoors is so easy.
It’s in the park where your recall training really counts. Teach your dog or puppy to come back when he/she is called despite the distractions in the park.
Dog and puppy training outdoors is not just so much more effective, it can avoid future heartache as your dog’s confidence grows and he/she starts to spread their wings but it’s also great fun.
You can’t do sausage scenting in a village hall & chasing bubbles just isn’t the same indoors.
Once you’ve completed your initial dog or puppy training you have our Tree of Achievement to climb adding in some fun dog agility or pet gundog training too.
Dog or puppy training outdoors is so much fun for you both.
