The purpose and aims of the school are to promote responsible dog ownership and to help dog owners achieve a better understanding of their dog towards a life of mutual enjoyment. We use only the kindest and most effective methods of training and are constantly reviewing the needs of our clients both canine and human.
Whether you are thinking of getting a new puppy, are taking on a rescue dog, simply want to teach your dog something new or improve on your existing training, Scallywags can help. We offer dog training for the South Hampshire area.
Scallywags behaviourists, trainers and instructors adhere to a very strict code of practice. We use only force-free, reward-based methods of training. We use positive reinforcement, often with a clicker, using food, toys/play and praise as rewards. Find out more about our methods and why we use them here.
Scallywags offer a variety of training classes & consultations, ranging from puppy training &
socialising to more complex behaviour problems, adult dog club and all levels of agility. Whatever age your dog is, we can tailor our training to suit you!
Our shop in Shedfield is open Tuesday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm. We stock a range of holistic wet and dry food & treats along with harnesses, leads, crates and toys. Find out more about the products we recommend here.
