Pads Dog Training is a positive reinforcement dog training centre which was established over 35 years ago. We have a reputation for being a well organised and fun dog training centre, making it rewarding and successful for both handlers and their dogs. We want to know what you need from us, as well as giving you the best training possible. Pads encourages you to arrive early, at no extra cost, to allow your dog to socialise with the other dogs. We give advice on behaviour issues as well as the training.
Pads takes dogs of any age, from as soon as they are inoculated, right into old age.
We want to give you and your dogs the best possible training in the area.
At Pads we believe that owning a well behaved dog shouldn't break the bank, our prices have remained fixed for many years, and all the profits made go straight back into the running of our non profit making training centre. That's right, all of our staff are very experienced volunteers, we do this because it's our passion! We also can’t defer fees or give refunds. Sorry we still have bills to pay. We give you the service that you need for your dogs, which can change to suit the dog's needs.
See how much fun you could have by coming to Pads at either of our two venues. Visit the Contact page for maps showing the Homes of Pads.
Here's some of our regulars....
Meet the wonderful dedicated team that makes Pads Dog Training the amazing success that it is 🐾🐾
Roz, who runs Pads Dogs Training and has done for many years. She is a very experienced dog trainer and owner, who has owned and been training dogs all her life. She's experienced in all aspects of dog care and ownership, including obedience training and behaviour, having been on numerous courses and training weekends.
She has also been a dog breeder, a handler for the show circuit, done obedience and agility competitions. Roz is known for being a natural around dogs and her experience is second to none.
Roz has the puppy classes at both venues and the gold class at Penkridge, but often steps in to take the other level classes too!
Norman, he has been a trainer for Pads for almost as long as Pads has been going. He is an extremely experienced trainer who has owned dogs all his life so is a natural dog person. He has handled dogs in the show ring and has judged at fun dog shows many times.
Norman also does most of the private lessons as he is very calm around the dogs and the worried owners. He is also very passionate about what he does and is extremely good at all aspects of dog ownership.
He runs the fun agility at Haughton. Norman also has the bronze and silver classes and does the end of course puppy assessments. He's a very friendly, welcoming guy who has really good people skills too!
Norman is also our first aider.
Maryann again has had dogs all her life so is an exceptionally experienced dog person. She has been coming to Pads for many years with a number of her own dogs. Then about 12 years or so ago she started to help in the classes and have classes of her own. Maryann then went on numerous courses to become a KC examiner, which she does with a very high level of knowledge and expertise. She also steps in to help in a class and often has a class of her own.
Maryann is absolutely brilliant at helping people on a one to one basis at the edge of the class if their dog is worried about being in a class environment. Then after a couple of sessions with Maryann they are able to join in the class.
She is also very knowledgeable about the doodle breeds, having had some of her own!
Susanna, another experienced dog owner who has a natural ability to get the most out of the dogs she owns herself and has in her classes.
Susanna has been bringing dogs to Pads for a number of years, so has gone right through our system and has an excellent understanding of training the puppies the Pads way.
She started helping in puppy classes a few years agao and now has a puppy group of her own at our Penkridge venue. Susanna is really good at passing her knowledge on to the dogs and owners of her classes, ensuring that they understand everything they are taught!
Meet Chloe the latest member of our wonderful team of voluntary helpers and trainers.
Chloe has been involved with Pads since she was 3 years old. She has a lovely natural ability with dogs and her people skills are excellent. She seems to naturally know when someone needs help and how to help people who are struggling with things. Chloe is very helpful to the young handlers who attend our classes because she is young herself, she's on the same wavelength!
I'm glad we have her involved, she is going to be a vary valuable addition to the team.
We are also fortunate to have Chloe's Mum Mel involved with the classes. She steps in to help when we need her to. Mel again has been involved with Pads for a long time and is very good with the dogs in the classes. Mel is a foster for a local rescue centre too!
Andrew helps with the fun agility, helping to put the heavy equipment out and putting it back when the class is over.
He also helps with the obedience classes in Haughton, stepping in to help people who need a little bit extra to get things right for their dogs, helping with the tests and generally being there to step in to get the classes running smoothly!
Carron and Karen
We also have two very important people who are in the background of our team. They are Carron and Karen. Karen who keeps the website up to date and looking good, and Carron who gives advice and support when needed.
Everyone on the team, be it at the forefront of the classes or doing the behind the scenes stuff, is as important to the smooth running of Pads Dog Training.
Helpers, trainers and supporters
We are very fortunate in having members of our team who we can call on for assistance, some in class and some for events, and are just as important members of our team.
PADS DOG TRAINING COULD NOT RUN TO THE PROFESSIONAL, FUN, EXCITING, LEVEL IT DOES WITHOUT THE HELP OF ALL THESE VERY IMPORTANT MEMBERS OF THE "PADS FAMILY TEAM"
