Dog Training Classes

Contented Canines Training School offers Puppy and Adult Dog Training Classes, and private Home Training Sessions in Glossop and surrounding areas.

Dog training classes Glossop

Run by experienced dog trainer Nicola Davies BA (Hons.) MAPDT 01059 CAP1, all classes use only the most up to date modern reward based training techniques to get the most out of your dog. Classes are fully insured, and spaces are limited to ensure you receive individual attention.

Puppy and adult dog training classes are a fantastic and enjoyable way to educate, train and socialise your dog or puppy, and are also a great way for dog owners to meet other like-minded people and make new friends – both canine and human!

The training curriculum is always tailored to the learning speed and needs of each class and individual dogs. As a reward based training class we do not endorse any harsh methods. We use hands-off, positive training using treats, praise and encouragement to help the dogs learn. All class attendees will receive a starter pack which includes a clicker and treats!

Why not get in touch to see how we can help you and your dog!

You can book your place on our training classes on our website, start by selecting the class below:

Puppy Training Class with Operation Socialisation

Our Puppy Training Class is suitable for puppies under the age of 6 months, from as soon as they have completed their vaccinations. We focus on teaching you and your puppy the skills and exercises you need for real life situations! We practice in the set ups that you need most – in the living room, in the kitchen, at the vets, out and about, at the groomers and at dog-friendly cafes/pubs.


Basic Manners Class

Our Basic Manners Class is suitable for puppies who have completed our Puppy Training Class and dogs that are new to training. We teach you and your dog the skills and exercises you need for real life situations and then practice them in the set ups that you need them most – at home, at work, on walks, around visitors, at the park and at dinner time.


Leadwork Workshop

Brand New for Summer 2017, and due to popular demand we are hosting a Leadwork Workshop on Sunday 27th August.


Talking Dogs Scentwork Workshop

We are very excited to be hosting a Scentwork Level One Full Day Workshop with Talking Dogs Scentwork this July 2017!

This is your introduction to scentwork where you and your dog learn the basics. Your dog will be introduced to a specific scent and will be encouraged to give an active indication (dog plays with the scented article or eats the food find, rather than going still and staring, or sitting in front of it). You will learn about the scent picture, basic handling skills and conducting free searches.


The Barky Bunch Club!

The Barky Bunch Club are small group classes specifically for dogs who become noisy or bouncy around other dogs or people on walks. Whether your dog is a frustrated greeter, nervous or reactive, we have set this up for you!
