Dog Training Academy
Dog and puppy training in North Devon
The Charter Dog Training Academy is very much centred on promoting fun, reward based training strategies to enable dogs to live more in harmony with us whilst maintaining maximum animal welfare standards.
Our trainer Zaina has seen and experienced many different training methods and because of this, and extensive research, it is believed that fun, reward based clicker training is by far the most effective and most pleasurable for both you & your canine companion. We will give you full training on the “click and treat” method, learning lifelong skills that will be fun & easy for you & your dog. You will be amazed at how fast your canine companion will learn these skills & enjoy doing so! We look forward to meeting you and your four legged friend.
