Dog Training Classes

Classes will be held at the shelter and are coordinated by our Behaviourist, Rosie Taylor-Trigg, and her team. Rosie has been working with dogs for over 8 years, in both rescue and private kennel environments, building on her knowledge through continued learning and academic achievement. A firm believer in force-free training and positive reinforcement, Rosie works with Shelter dogs daily and now offers her expertise to members of the public who have problem pets.
