Dog School Hertfordshire

Welcome to Dog School Hertfordshire! We are here to bring positive, friendly and fun training classes to you, your family and your dog. Dog School offers training classes with a difference: with the scientific knowledge that leads the very best dog training methods, mixed with fun, friendly and welcoming guidance from our coaches.

We want to help your dog learn, adapt and be confident and happy to enjoy life. We focus on teaching life skills that will be useful in everyday life for dogs and owners and build the owner-dog bond which is so important for working and living happily together.

Our puppy, rescue and adult classes are designed so all ages of dog can come along. These classes are run weekly by our qualified team of coaches, who are knowledgeable, vibrant and enthusiastically awaiting to meet you and your dog. These classes will provide you with an array of knowledge and skills to help understand your dog’s behaviour and train your pooch on the road to success to being a polite, well-mannered doggy citizen of Hertfordshire.

We are looking forward to meeting you, so don’t hesitate to pick up the ‘dog and bone’ (phone) or enquire online to speak to our fabulous team today.

Trainers' profiles

Head Coach, Natalie, has been working in rehoming centres for the past four years as the behaviour coordinator, helping rehabilitate and train homeless dogs, finding them new homes and supporting their owners. Now, fancying a different focus working with dogs and with a drive to help prevent dogs needing to be rehomed, she is thrilled to take on the Head Coach role, starting up in Hertfordshire.

  

She studied Animal Management and Welfare BSc (Hons) at the University of Lincoln and graduated in 2013. Natalie loves all dogs, but particularly the Labradors and Retrievers, having grown up with these breeds, and would love to, one day, have a giant breed dog.

  

Natalie is also a huge wildlife enthusiast, particularly marine mammals and takes every opportunity to go and see them in the wild.

An experienced dog agility handler, Rhiannon is knowledgeable working with all breeds, but especially those who are highly energetic. She uses this experience to help owners form a strong bond with an understanding of the connection needed to bring out the best in every dog!

 

She is very passionate about coaching and is always there to give you any extra help you may require for your doggy companion! She loves to make training fun and enjoyable for the whole family. Rhiannon has a distinction in Dog training and Behaviour, and a distinction in Canine holistic health and therapy. She is currently studying for a membership of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers UK.

Loren has previously worked as a zookeeper moving across the country to work in the UKs top zoos. She spent her time working with many different species of zoo animals, particularly birds, and her most recent position was a Zoo Animal Trainer - training animals for display shows. It was here where her love of training came from. This combined with her training of her young rescue dog is what led her to Dogs Trust. 

 

Loren has a HND in Animal Management and In her spare time She enjoys going on long walks with her very energetic rescue dog, Cody. She also shares her home with many exotic pets ranging from a cockatiel to a chameleon, poison dart frogs, a tortoise and even tarantulas to name a few !
