Why should I listen to you?

You can – of course – take your pick from several dog training schools.  I’m sure you’ve been looking around.

But here’s why I’m the most experienced dog trainer in the South of England.

And why – crucially – you should let me help you and your dog:

  • I’ve been training dogs since I was 7 years old.
  • Qualified as an instructor in 1974.
  • Won numerous Obedience and Working Trials.
  • Trained both police and army dogs.
  • Been on the judging panel for many Obedience and Working Trials.
  • I’m a Kennel Club Good Citizens Dog Scheme assessor.
  • Fully backed by the Institute of Professional Dog Trainers.
  • Recommended by several dog rescue centres – including our local Chiltern Dog Rescue.

I’m not telling you this to boast.  I think it’s vital you know as much as possible to pick the right trainer.

And you don’t have to just take my word for it.  Ask Linnet Old:

After almost 25 years of owning setters, first Irish, then Gordon, we decided on acquiring two English Setter puppies – to attend training classes for the first time.

The breed are well known for their scattiness, energy and general devil-may-care attitude so we thought it would be a challenge for all concerned.

We contacted Peter Ross at Rossway Dog Training Centre on recommendation when the puppies (brothers – Rory and Rufus) were 11 weeks old and have been training once a week for the last 10 months.

The dogs are a pleasure to own, being obedient and responsive to all commands on and off the lead, they are sociable with other dogs and people, respond individually to voice control, bark on command, retrieve and drop – the list goes on.

They passed their Puppy Development Course with honours on their first birthday and are now progressing swiftly to the next stage. We have received a number of compliments on their behaviour, the most recent from a specialist at the Royal Vet’s College who commented that she wished all her patients were as beautifully behaved as Rufus.

This has all been achieved without any reduction of their happiness or natural exuberance – for this we owe Peter Ross a great debt of thanks.

His methods and enthusiasm cannot be surpassed and his love of dogs shines throughout – we could not have done it without him.

Here’s what Deborah Kinloch says:

I have been attending Pete’s training classes with my rescue dog Missie for nearly 2 years.  Her obedience and behaviour has greatly improved since we started.

we both enjoy the classes and there is lots of variety.  In every class we do obedience exercises, heelwork and agility.  As well as free running and retrieving in the paddock.

The facilities and trainers at Rossway are excellent.

And Roger Batton said:

When I came to see you 3 months ago I was sceptical that a 6 year old dog could be changed.

As you have pointed out he is a high energy, strong willed dog.

However, with the consistent firm training method you teach he has changed, and is now a pleasure to have around.

No dog too small.

No dog too small.

If what Linnet, Deborah and Roger say has convinced you, please call me me on 01442 870990.  Or just send me an email.

If you’re still not sure, I can go trying to persuade you until I’m blue in the face.

But there’s only 1 way for you to really find out if I can help you – put me to the test.

I know picking the right dog trainer is a big decision.

Get it right and you’re in clover.  Get it wrong and you’ll kick yourself.

So why not call me on 01442 870990, or send that email right now – before something else gets in the way.

You won’t regret it.
