Pro Dog Training Classes Cosford

There is no magic to dog training, but there are very few highly knowledgeable and experienced trainers offering their services to you and your dog, and an awful lot who know the basics, often very little more than you know yourself, but are prepared to take your money and give it a go.

Dog Training Services

Training Services

Dogs don't know the difference between right and wrong. They learn from the consequences of their everyday experiences. We usually play a major role in providing those experiences and consequences.

Dogs Running

Behavioural Services

There is a difference between dog obedience training and behaviour modification, although all behaviour modification involves an element of training as the dog needs to learn new behaviour patterns.


Training & Development

At Cosford Dog Training you get good technical training supported by homework and written training material, providing you and your dog with a positive training experience.

The training is delivered in a professional, but not a military manner. You will learn both techniques and the theory behind it that leads to success. Our training aims to develop the bond between you and your dog, because, without that bond, all the obedience in the world is a bit hollow.

Success does not happen by accident. It comes about by combining knowledge, skill, and hard work. I will provide this level of commitment to you and your dog, but I expect the same level of commitment.

Whilst it is hard work, my aim is to make the training enjoyable for you and especially for your dog because you are choosing to attend, but Rover isn’t. So let’s make sure he’s happy whilst learning.

Cosford Dog Training is the only dog training school in the United Kingdom that has its courses underpinned by a highly successful puppy training and development manual written by the head trainer, who actually delivers the training classes.

Fitz is wonderful with such a lovely nature. My daughter had the most amazing day learning from him and is now hooked on track. His dogs and teachings are second to none. Thank you Fitz and Lydia for such a wonderful experience. It has helped our dogs progress and my daughter's training methods go from strength to strength ?
