The Dog-Cademy Centre

Training and Behavioural Courses using Engagement

steve 3The Dog-Cademy has been launched to cater for all dogs (Creche attendee’s or otherwise!), we have courses for all age ranges and disciplines and our centre is on site and headed up by Steve Andrews whom is known to many in the dog world. Steve has a reputation for offering training and behaviour analysis, developing techniques that encourage you to engage with your dog, all methods are kind and promoted in a calm environment.

All of our courses (both training and behavioural based) are limited to ten dogs only, therefore enhancing your experience, providing more individual attention, allowing you and your dog to get more from the training experience.

Some of our courses have a mix of being in our Training room as well as outside on grass.



The Puppy course is ideal for all puppies upto 8-12 months old, and usually they are between 12 weeks and 6 months old.  It is an 8 week course and covers all the basic obedience you will require however it also teaches you to engage with your puppy and develop your canine-human relationship.

It is training with a difference, it is with engagement.  You will also learn life skills and understand behaviour, this is a popular, great fun course.

Positive coaching with reward based methods.  Lessons are for one hour each week and are both in our Training Room as well as outside on grass.

  • Cost: £88.00 At graduation we have wonderful rosette’s, diploma’s and certificates.


This 8 week course is for owners wishing to take their obedience levels to a heightened level, and amongst other things RECALL UNDER DISTRACTION is covered in great depth.  If your dog gets easily distracted and runs off to play with other dogs, or maybe just runs off to a distance that you are not comfortable with, then this is the course for you! You will learn and understand market training as well as have development of your canine-human relationship.

We have many dogs that finish their Puppy Course or the Adolescent Course and then wish to continue their training, this course is ideal for those dogs as well as new students.  Lessons are undertaken both in our Training room as well as outside on grass to create as many stimulating environments as possible.

Our Activities courses are a fun and stimulating environment, you will learn key disciplines from top dog activities including Flyball, Agility, Show Ring and Heelwork.  We teach owners to engage and enhance their relationships with their dogs.

We teach many different agility obstacles, break it down to each element, which means no hanging around for your turn (a common complaint during agility training), dogs don’t get bored waiting around, you simply move from jumps or tunnel onto the see-saw and weaving!

We always have a lot of fun and laughter coming from the training room during this exciting course!

Private 121’s

Sometimes a dog may not be right to attend a group course just yet, you may have unique requirements and on occasion we have dealt with a dog that is not safe enough to be in a group environment.  All issues/problems can be addressed, we are not faint-hearted!

They are individual sessions lasting one hour and we have a group of dogs we can use to work with if your dog has issues with other dogs.
