Welcome to Riverside Dog Training

Riverside Dog Training was founded in 2001 by Lucy Bonnett, the dream was a Dog Training Club where pet dog owners could come and learn how to train their dogs in a happy relaxed atmosphere.  Many owners are confused about their relationship with their dog, they get bogged down with terms such as dominance, pack and leadership. They don't understand how to get the best from their dog by working with them and hence building a fantastic bond, whilst at the same time developing a happy, stable, well-behaved, confident dog.  At Riverside DTC that's what we always aim for.

We participate in the Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme, so anyone coming on our courses has the opportunity to sit their Kennel Club Good Citizen Assessments at each level from Puppy through to Advanced (Gold). You can find out more about the KCGCS by visiting their web site.

Lucy says "I'm proud of Riverside, we love what we do, we love dogs and enjoy working with dogs, adults and children.  I consider myself very fortunate to do a job I love, supported by a wonderful team.  Every class and dog is special, and I learn so much both from the owners and the dogs themselves.  Dogs are not robots, you can't pop them on a conveyor belt and expect them all to come out perfect at the other end, it's about working with each individual to get the very best from them.  I believe we've had a good training session when we've learnt and laughed in equal measures."
