A little bit about four paws….

Four Paws Dog Training is run by Kathryn Roughley her puppy training classes,are run on Thursday evenings at the Old School Hall, in Ulnes Walton, Nr Leyland, PR26 8LT. 

The classes are  for puppies from 12 weeks to 21 weeks old, so puppies in class are of a similar age, and are run in a 6 week course.

Kathryn has had dogs all of her life, and currently owns a working Golden Retriever. She has been involved with various gundog rescues since 2002, and for 10 years was heavily involved in” front line” rescue where she gained “real life” experience.

She has worked helping to  assess dogs before they go to their new home, doing home assessments, and re-homed hundreds of dogs. 

She was always interested in how a dogs mind worked, and the training methods used in teaching dogs.  After completing her written training course with the ADTB, she travelled out of town to attend weekly training classes, and passed a practical assessment, in order to gain the “Accredited Gold Level Instructor” status.

Kathryn is a member of the Pet Professional Guild (British Isles), the National Register of Dog Trainers & Behaviourists, has gained the  ISCP Basic Dog Behaviour Award, Sarah Whiteheads “Think Dog” certificate, and has recently completed  two Ian Dunbar “Sirius” Dog Training  Courses.

The training classes at Four Paws use fun and effective ways to train your dog by using reward based training. The classes are run in a friendly manner, as dog training should be as much fun for the owner as it is for the dog.

The classes at Four Paws are structured, so you will learn something new every week .All commands that you learn in class, are relevant to your every day life.

Kathryn also recognises that each dog and person are unique, and that different techniques and approaches are required with different dogs and people, she is also always there to help or answer any questions that you may have, so don’t be afraid to ask.
