Hello and welcome to Confident Canines Dog Training
We offer a wide range of options for training puppies and dogs of all ages to suit your (and their) individual needs.
Covering Leyland, Euxton, Chorley, Preston, South Ribble & most of South Lancashire
Our group training classes are based in Leyland but we typically travel up to 10 miles for private training, covering most of south Lancashire.
If you are looking for puppy classes, puppies aged up to 20 weeks can join our 6-week Puppy Foundation courses. Our puppy play sessions are also a great addition to aid the all-important early socialisation.
Adult Dog/Progressive Classes
Dogs over 20 weeks are welcome to join our progressive Life Skills classes which enable you to progress your training from foundation level, developing real life training skills. If you wish, you can work through our Confident Canines Life Skills Award program to see just how well your dog is doing against a measured level of achievement.
One to One Sessions
If private one to one training sessions suit your needs better, our sessions are tailored to address specific topics you may need help with. These sessions either take place in your home or at a public location agreed prior to the session.
If you are due to welcome a new puppy into the home, we offer a variety of puppy training packages which are designed to help you prepare for new puppy ownership and can assist you in the initial few weeks when you bring your puppy home.
Canine Hoopers Classes
As well as being our head trainer, Emma is an Accredited Canine Hoopers UK Instructor and hosts Canine Hoopers taster workshops as well as regular Hoopers classes for those looking for something a little bit different (but also fun!) to do with their dogs on a regular basis.
We also run subject-specific training workshops which focus on typical problem topics such as recall and lead walking.
Outings and Social Events
As well as the formal training sessions, Emma has created a strong local community of dog owners and regularly organises walks, outings and social get-togethers for like-minded owners to be able to come together, socialise with their dogs, and practice their training if they wish!
