Learn Whilst Having Fun!

Working With You


About Us

My name is Chris and I have been helping owners create well mannered dogs for over 25 years. I am constantly looking at new ways for owners to connect with their dogs in a fun and positive way.

I am based in North Tawton, Devon and am able to offer 121 sessions and socially distanced group classes at The Caring Horsemanship Centre, EX20 2QZ which is easily accessible from A30 Whiddon Down exit
I will be giving updates of our progress in our blog and other social media platforms. So contact me to book your session, so you can start the process of creating that wonderful bond and cooperation with your dog. 

I have a GSD and two German Spitz Klein. 

I am a Canine Hoopers World Instructor.

I ran Henley Dog Training School based in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire for 11 years until 2020 when I moved to Devon.


Beginner Skills

Teach your new puppy as soon as fully vaccinated or dog all the basic skills to create a dog that you can take anywhere.  

I am running rolling basis group session to allow you to start as soon as you are able to do so and do as many sessions as you feel you need. We have sessions on a Saturday 14.00, also a Wednesday session 11.00.

Only 5 places available so must be booked in advance. 


Hoopers Agility

Hoopers Agility is a fun, low impact activity involving negotiating hoops, barrels and tunnels. It builds confidence and focus and is open to dogs of any age over 6 months or breed.

I am offering 121 sessions either as a one off taster or on a regular basis. Also rolling basis weekly group sessions with no more than 5 dog's in the session and a chance to work through the CHW Levels Scheme. Thursday Evening 18.00 and 19.00. Now have a Sat 15.00 session too.


Adventure Pack Walks

Small group training pack walks to put training techniques and games into practice in the real world.

This includes skills such as coming when called, walking on a loose lead or leaving things that they are not supposed to pick up.  Build confidence and focus around other dogs both on and off lead.

We will start again in the April at Winkleigh Woods.

Not suitable for dog's under 6 months ( See Puppy Adventures)


Smart Skills

For dog's that have good basic skills around other dogs and people and need to move to the next level.  In a Smart Skills sessions dogs will be working more off lead, tricks and freestyle, body conditioning and more advanced obedience will be learnt.


NEW for 2022 Puppy Adventures

This year I am introducing Puppy Adventures which is aimed at dog's from 12 weeks to 6 months. It will be a controlled safe environment for young dog's to socialise both on and off lead. Your puppy will be introduced to different experiences, sounds and smells. You will learn games that can be incorporated into your everyday lives. This will be about having fun with your puppy. 
Sessions will be 30 minutes. Max group 6
