The Dog House Academy is an established training school for you and your dog. With two venues one can be found in the quiet, rural location of Thorney Dyke just outside the village of Thorney near Peterborough. and the other in Orton Southgate at The Canine Centre of Excellence, a multipurpose designed venue with dogs in mind – indoor training rooms with non-slip floors and outdoor training areas with secure 6ft fencing.
We promote and uses KIND, FAIR and EFFECTIVE training methods, friendly informal classes in both basic behaviours and more energetic activities and individual training sessions and behaviour consultations.
All of our courses operate a ‘first come first served basis. We offer ‘Puppy LIFESKILLS Courses (for pups 6 months and under)’ to help you teach your new friend some basic training and manners. Courses for the adolescent and adult dog. We also run Agility Fun Foundations and Heelwork to music / Trick classes. Periodically throughout the year we run a variety of workshops and seminars with carefully chosen guest instructors.
The Dog House welcomes all breeds, cross-breeds, ages and sizes of dogs. We also welcome dog owners with disabilities providing any practicalities can be overcome.
One to One sessions are available for dogs that are unable to join the group classes due to behaviour issues such as dog to dog aggression or for those dogs and owners that just want a little extra help.
Home Consultations are also available for more complex individual problems such as separation issues, fear of people, car chasing etc. We do ask for you to visit your veterinary surgeon to rule out medical issues and to ask for a referral prior to this service.
