Dog Training

Dog training with us is effective and great fun too. It’s positive for both you and your dog and will help you to build a lifetime bond.

We provide dog and puppy training by classes, one to one sessions and online. Classes are at Hedge End and Fawley near Southampton and Fareham.

Why The National Dog Training Academy? (The NDTA)

The NDTA not only love dogs but we love people too! We are very aware, that to help you train your dog we have to build a great relationship with you. It’s your dog or puppy and we just want to see you both having all the tools and skills you need to build a fantastic bond and live a healthy, happy life together.

Training works for dogs of any age. You definitely can, ‘teach an old dog new tricks.’

Over the past 12 years, not only have we trained 1000’s of puppies, dogs and their owners, truly making a difference to the lives they enjoy together but we have also trained many students. Our students, using our tried and tested methods of training, have built their own businesses, not only across the UK, including Northern Ireland but in far away places like Malta too.

The principle of training you and your dog outdoors, with a ‘no nag’ training method is key to our success. Our success, is your success.

Brilliant. Professional but friendly and every week a different carefully planned session that helps you to work with your dogs and have fun. Sandra and the team always have time for advice and tips. Excellently organised. The highlight of my week.

The best dog training around. Started attending their classes during lockdown which changed over to zoom during lockdown 2. Super organised, helpful friendly staff who are full of knowledge.

Couldn't recommend these guys highly enough! They were nothing but supportive, fun and hugely knowledgeable. Sandra and team were brilliant, helping my dog learn at her pace, with the space she needed and without judgement. Their advice has stayed with us and we wouldn't go anywhere else when we need to again!

Cannot praise highly enough for the training support given both in outdoor group sessions and on Zoom during recent lockdown. Our little Cavapoo puppy is progressing so well all down to the training support and advice which books cannot provide me with.
