Hello and welcome to Acorn Dog Training Club, based at Kembroke Kennels, Bucklesham, where we are founded on the belief that not all pets are born equal, and that they’ve their own traits and mannerisms.

+++ For other training options such as weekly classes, courses including scent, heelwork to music and tricks, please see our Tunstall location +++

Whether it’s for basic manners or more complex behavioral issues, we focus on not only training your pet, but teaching you how to effectively communicate with them, which is a method full of fun techniques, giving you and your pet a happier life together.

SERVICES WE PROVIDE

• Group classes for adult dogs
– beginner through to advance

• 1-1 sessions, for those struggling or overwhelmed or just need some extra guidance – mileage may be applicable if I come to you

• Pre/New puppy consultations – preventing an issue is easier than solving one!

• Puppy playschool
– For puppies up to 24 months and held at Kembroke Kennels, Thursdays 11:00 to 12:00
– Sign up for 5 weeks at a time, with between 1 – 3 puppies each week.
– Activities dependent on puppies present but may include socialisation, walks, controlled play, work amongst distractions and general training and obedience.
Ideal for nervous/anxious dogs or for those who would like more individual attention than classes without having to pay for a 1-1.

• Fun agility, suitable for dogs over 12 months of age. Either introductory courses for those completely new to the sport, or progressive courses for those dogs who have some experience. Courses held on Tuesdays at 11 and must be booked in advance.

WHY USE US?
We’re a Kennel Club Listed Club; offering the opportunity to train for the Kennel Club Good Citizen Awards, which is a national pet dog training scheme.

Our training methods are based on motivation and reward, where our aim is to help you to train your dog to become a sociable and well-mannered pet, that is a pleasure to own.

Used these kennels for many a year, it’s friendly, clean and your dogs are part of their family and really very well cared for.
Sadly we’re moving out of the area and have probably used these kennels for the last time.
We’ve just picked Arthur and Larry up from their final visit, unfortunately Larry was quite poorly during his stay but once again the staff excelled. Larry needed the vet, the kennels let us know and we were thinking of coming back, but Jenny reassured us that they would take him to the vet and manage things going forward. Jenny kept us updated through phone calls and email.
Just fabulous work ethics from the whole team!
If I can find a kennels half as good as Kembroke I will be very lucky!

Sophie had the most amazing stay at Kembroke Kennels. Friendly and warm welcome and all aspects of her stay discussed as well as a groom whilst she was there. So easy and I felt confident leaving her in their care. Thank you so much we will be back x

We have 2 gsd’s at the moment, but over the years, we have taken rottweillers too, who share a heated kennel. Every time they come home, they look happy and well looked after. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about dogs, cats, and horses. Would recommend if looking for a boarding kennels.

My dog always goes off happily without a backwards glance when I drop her off. Does my dog mum guilt the world of good. She comes home acting like she’s never been away

Rocky loved his stay here. They treat them as there own & would definitely recommend them 100%. I was nervous about him staying but really didn’t need to be. He had a nice pamper while he was there. This will definitely be the place I take him too when we go away again.

Absolutely love all the staff here and they do an amazing job. Second stay for my girlie and they are amazing with her even though she’s a nervous dog ❤️ wouldn’t use any other kennels. Definitely recommend them.
