Positive Training For Canines - Dog Training in Winchester, HampshireOur main aim at Positive Training For Canines is to build an excellent relationship between you and your four legged friend, through mutual respect, belief and cooperation. We only use kind, positive training methods to achieve results.
All our classes are held at Colden Common Community Centre, St Vigor Way, Colden Common. We offer puppy socialisation classes as well as classes for adolescent and adult dogs.
Puppy training is part of puppy socialisation. Here at Positive Training for Canines we offer small, fun, relaxed puppy classes where individual attention can be given. To achieve results we only use positive reward based training through the use of food rewards, body language and vocal praise.
We run 6 week courses at Colden Common Community Centre for puppies who have received their second vaccination and those up to the age of 16 weeks. Our classes are designed to cover the basics of your training. We will teach your puppy to greet other dogs appropriately and calmly and encourage them to focus on you with lots of distractions from the class environment.

These classes are suitable for dogs that have been re-homed, completed a puppy class and those who wish to refresh their training or to help build their bond with their loving four legged friend. Make Positive Training for Canines your number one choice for dog training classes in Winchester.

Our recall workshops are designed for people who lack the confidence of letting their dogs off lead or struggle to call their dogs back with distractions. This is open to all dogs in our classes as well as those who wish to just work on their recalls.
Please Note: For dogs that wish to attend our recall workshop we do carry out a home visit to get to know the owner and dog before attending.
Loose Lead Training
Many dog owners struggle to walk their puppies and dogs on a loose lead. This loose lead training session is designed to work on encouraging the dog to walk on a loose lead and to offer advice and tips to the owner to achieve this. This is open to all dogs in our classes as well as those who wish to work on this area.
Please Note: For dogs that wish to attend our loose lead session we do carry out a home visit to get to know the owner and dog before attending.
Other Pet Related ServicesDog Walking
We offer a dog walking service which can be on a regular basis or if needs be a one off. We work on individual households which gives us the opportunity to encourage your dog to walk on a relaxed lead if necessary and to interact with him/her whilst out and about. We believe in offering dogs mental stimulation as well as physical exercise so therefore we will use the remaining time to provide this to them so that your dog is ready for a sleep by the time we leave!
“I took my puppy to Positive Training For Canines to help me learn the basics in training but also to socialise her. I found these classes very useful with a relaxing but fun atmosphere. Leah and Paula are very knowledgeable trainers who have a real passion for the job. I would highly recommend joining their classes. ”
