Taking the Lead

Ex police dog Handler/Trainer Paul is leading this one day course, providing practical skills and guidance to help owners and dogs progress their training and obedience. He has been training dogs most of his life, and now retired, he spends his days dog training and helping owners with a wide variety of problems. He is a very experienced, down to earth trainer with a very flexible approach to training, and has a wonderful ability to tailor his training to the individual needs of dogs and owners in a relaxed and fun way
