Private Dog Training

For dogs over 6 months old

Whether you'd like to brush up on some basic obedience, help with pulling on the lead, recall or getting your dog to settle on the mat when the doorbell goes. We can tailor the training sessions to meet your needs. We can also help with settling in your new rescue dog.

All our training is based on kind, positive, modern and force-free methods to get the best out of your dog. We work on building a stronger bond between you and your dog and encourage you to have fun while training. We use up to date scientific training and use no harsh methods. We use reward based training either with treats, toys or praise. We use clicker training / marker training. This is a tool that helps pin point to your dog what they are doing right. Covering Cambridge, Newmarket and a 10 mile radius.

COVID - 19

Unfortunate due to COVID - 19 Cambridge Dog Services will NOT be able to offer training classes or Face to Face consultations until at least OCTOBER 2020. As the head Trainer Melissa Hartnack is living with someone who is shielding. We do have some great online classes which you can start at any time with lots of trainer support. You will be able to ask as many questions as you like either via email, text or on our private Facebook group where you can share your training journey with other new puppy paw-parents. Come and join us we are a very social butch. We also have video consultations which will provide the same service as our face to face consults.
