Dog School Sussex

Welcome to Dog School Sussex! Our dedicated team are here to help you build a stronger relationship with your dog through our positive training classes. We have 5 week courses tailored for puppies, rescue dogs and adult dogs.

 

Our classes have been carefully designed to provide the best learning environment.
