Bradford dog training you can count on

Want a responsive dog who listens? Let’s get started.

Imagine if your dog gave you their full attention and came bounding back to you the first time you called. What if instead of feeling embarrassed or frustrated, you felt proud of your dog’s behaviour – wherever you are together.

If you’re struggling with your dog’s behaviour or want to teach them something new, you might think the most valuable thing is to learn how to train your dog.

However, when you couple the how with why, you unlock an unmatchable bond and a whole new perspective of what drives your dog’s behaviour.

Train with me and you’ll not only have a dog who listens, you’ll finally know how to listen to them too. You’ll reveal a whole new understanding of your dog, boosting your bond (and their behaviour).

Step 2

I’ll recommend the best fit package to match your needs

Step 3

Almost immediate results!

“Sam’s methods are so professional and skilled, but in such a friendly way. After a session assessing us, and then Ted, an action plan was devised and put to the test.

Sam managed to show us almost immediate results. Further mind games, practice, and home work has shown us how to achieve results.

Further sessions with Sam, inside, walking and introducing Ted to her own dog have further added to our confidence that this lady really knows her stuff.

Thank you Sam. We now have a much happier and more confident little dog.”

I thought she was untrainable!

“We rescued our Dolly back in September. She wasn’t house trained, had never walked on a lead before, had absolutely no rules or structure. She would counter surf, pinch food, jump up, she had no recall whatsoever and had never been trained in her life.

We decided to go to The Great Outpaws training classes (although if I’m being honest, I wasn’t convinced that we would never be able to train her!)

Sam was attentive, educational, patient and caring. She helped us realise what behaviours meant and how to go about training Dolly in the correct way.

Dolly now walks on a loose lead, is able to be off her lead, house trained, knows basic skills and is an absolute joy. That’s all thanks to Sam at The Great Outpaws.

We often see Sam on our walks and it’s like Dolly is apart of her family and is always wanting updates! Would highly recommend! Thank you so much Sam!”
