What Our Clients Say...

“Davey is a wonderful trainer, calm, thoughtful and always looking for the right solution for the individual dog (and people!). We can't recommend highly enough!"

"We've been working with Davey over a few one-to-one sessions and it is the most rewarding dog training we have done. We all learn so much and it is quite unbelievable how quickly our boy picks up new things! The reactiveness is decreasing and we will keep working on that. Meantime, we are learning to be calmer as well as all kinds of lovely things that continue to build on our human-dog relationship. 
Thank you Davey!"

Our Commitment to You...
We're confident that you'll love online training with Axe Valley Dog Training!

Due to the current pandemic, we believe that outdoor and video sessions are safest, and assure clients that there is very little training that cannot be carried out in this way, with the same phenomenal results.  

However, we recognise that online training may be a little different for some of our clients, so, if for any reason you aren't able to continue with online training, we will reschedule to an in-person date when this is possible. 

As a small business, training online helps us to survive what is a very difficult and uncertain time, and your support is hugely appreciated.
