Kind, fun and effective dog training and puppy training

in and around Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire

Welcome to

Complete Canine Dog Training!

If you're looking for puppy training or dog training that is kind, fun, and, with your commitment, delivers results that really work in real life situations, then we would love to be a part of helping you reach your training goals.


Whether you have just welcomed a new puppy or rescue dog into your home, or your canine pal has been a member of your family for weeks, months or years; taking the time to train your dog positively, and mindfully, can deliver huge benefits to you, your dog and society as a whole.


Owners often say when we first meet “It’s really me you need to train!” and in a very positive sense this is true.


Whilst both you and your dog are on a journey of learning together, a trainer's main role is to help you understand your dog's behaviour and how to communicate with them effectively. These skills will help you to ensure your dog’s needs are being met, whilst helping them to learn what you would like them to do in any given situation.


By coaching you in the use of positive-reinforcement training and management techniques, we will help you build a secure bond and clear lines of communication with your dog, so that you can achieve your training goals and develop the enjoyable and successful partnership you've always wanted.


It doesn’t matter:

  • What breed or crossbreed your dog is

  • Whether they are male, female, neutered or entire

  • Whether your dog is confident, boisterous, nervous or reserved

  • If you’ve been best friends for years or have just met

  • How old your dog is…or how old you are!


We can all learn new tricks and develop our knowledge, skills and expertise.

In my experience, well-trained owners are happy owners and well-trained dogs are happy dogs!

What clients say

“Storm and I first met Sara at puppy classes. Sara made both of us feel very much at home and relaxed. I was a little nervous due to Storm’s sheer size and strength, but Sara was so helpful and the techniques she taught us were invaluable. Sara also came to our house to give us some 121 training which has helped make our beautiful Storm what he is today.

Sara looks at all aspects of training, not only the dog but us humans too, no easy task! Her confidence and knowledge are second to none. Due to her relaxed nature Storm absolutely loved Sara. Five star dog trainer.”
