Woof IT was established over11 years ago by our founder Mandy Beardshaw and was born from her vision to offer pet training and classes for all dogs and their owners. Mandy has over 30 years experience with dog training and coaching and also competes on a regular basis in competitive obedience, and is doing well.Mandy also offers clicker training and has passed the cap 1&2 with Distinction, and is also an IABTC Advanced Approved Instructor,we go on courses to keep up with all the different types of training thats around as it's always changing.In training we tend to use motivational methods either food or toy, depends on what motivates the dog more.
We started as a small group of people who shared a love of all things canine and have gone from strength to strength.
Our belief is that every dog matters and their owners do too and we all benefit from the fun, laughter and fitness we achieve!
We would love to welcome you all to our friendly classes and social events and look forward to hearing from you soon, WOOF!
We are mad about dogs and all things that woof it!!
We are a friendly, local dog training club based around the Dursley area. We love all things dog, and offer a range of services;
Our aim is for you to come along to a friendly class with a relaxed atmosphere and not feel pressured, if you feel calm so will the dog and this makes training much easier for you both.
