Dogs Trust Dog School Berkshire
Puppy Classes and Adult Dog Classes in Thatcham, Berkshire
We are passionate about the work we do with people and dogs from all walks of life. We seek to provide support and care to owners, enabling them to learn more about their dogs needs and the use of positive training methods, to equip their canine companion with the skills for a successful and happy family life. After all, we believe a happy dog makes a happy owner!
At Dog School, there’s no such thing as a “bad dog”. We’ll give expert advice and practical training to help you and your dog understand each other better. From loose lead walking to recall, we’ll provide reward based training and make sure you have fun along the way. Absolutely everybody is welcome, so don’t hesitate to get in touch and we look forward to meeting you soon!
We offer a fun, accessible and interactive environment to support deepening the bond between owner and dog.

At Dogs Trust we have a mission; we want every dog to lead a happy life free from the threat from unnecessary destruction. It means that a lot of our work is caring for dogs at our rehoming centres – dogs that need a second chance in life. But it also means addressing the root causes of problems. Every year we receive thousands of calls from people asking us to take their dogs into our rehoming centres, and the biggest single reason they give is because of the dog’s behaviour. So to address this problem, we’ve created Dogs Trust Dog School.
At Dog School we believe in setting our dogs and owners up for success. Most people want a dog that sits when asked, walks calmly on a loose lead, comes back when called and settles down when they stop to natter to their neighbour or have a pint in the pub! Most owners also want their dog to do these things even when there are tempting picnics around, kids running about playing football, or other dogs walking past. The training we do at Dogs Trust is based on teaching these basic behaviours that dogs and owners need for harmonious domestic life.

Kirsty thrives on sharing her knowledge and helping people reach their personal goals.

Chloe - Before joining Dog School Berkshire, Chloe worked at a local Farm Park developing her customer service skills as well as growing her love for animals. Her love for dogs started when she rescued her 6-month-old, now late, Collie X German Shepard in 2000. They formed a close bond and Chloe is eager to help others build a strong and lasting relationship with their dogs.
