Welcome to the website for Barking Needs Dog Training
*WE ARE RELOCATING TO WEST WALES SO NO BOOKINGS ARE BEING TAKEN AT THE MOMENT*
Barking Needs is made up of two Dog Trainers – Suzanne Hale & Simon Thurlbeck.
We have been involved in training dogs since 2002, and over the years we have gained a wide knowledge of dog training through a variety of workshops, training our own dogs and attending numerous classes and courses.
Our main interest is Agility and we compete at agility shows with our own dogs on a regular basis. We are qualified Agility1st Instructors. Agility1st is a Kennel Club Preferred Educational Partner.
In addition to Agility we provide training classes for Puppy Socialisation, Obedience & Rally Obedience. Barking Needs is a Kennel Club Listed Organisation so we are pleased to be able to offer Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Courses.
All of our training is based around enjoyment for the handlers and dogs. We do not condone any harsh handling. Our training is reward based (using plenty of toys and treats) and lessons are tailored to each handler and dog partnership.
We enjoy working with a wide variety of dogs – all breeds are welcome!
