Hello and welcome to Best Behaviour Dog Training Ltd, ran by Zoe Willingham, a qualified, independently accredited dog trainer and behaviourist.

*** Multi Award Winning Training – Theo Paphitis Business Award and Dog Training Service of the year 2022 for 2 years running – Prestige Awards ***

We were born out of a genuine concern for dogs and owners after seeing and experiencing first hand, a number of outdated and potentially damaging training techniques that were, and are still being used to train dogs – we are passionate about bringing kind science based training to dogs and their owners.

The training school and behaviour practice has received many recommendations from dog owners and animal welfare charities, vets and other animal related organisations.

We take our puppy here weekly and they are excellent. We are learning lots and we can tell our puppy really enjoys it too. We have signed up for another 16 weeks and the online training too. We really enjoy coming and the tea are so nice and welcoming. It really is fun for all and a lovely community of dog people that come here.

We have been attending puppy classes for 8 weeks and would recommend to everyone. My puppy has come on leaps and bounds all thanks to this lovely training school. We would have been lost without you as Jack is our first dog.

We attended puppy classes tonight. We don’t normally do reviews, but this was way beyond our expectations. We realised we had been doing things completely wrong, but Zoe made us feel so welcome and comfortable even though we think we have done things wrong until now. There was no judgement, just great advice and a really supportive way about things. Zoe even took the time to help us understand about feeding, walking times and a few other tips. A really great place to learn about your puppy.

Excellent classes. We attend classes and thoroughly enjoyed every second. The classes were well thought out, nicely planned and very professional in their approach as well as very friendly.
Zoe who runs them also does the online training with us as well, so we not only have the fun of taking part in a weekly class, but we also see her for online sessions as well.
We are really pleased with our puppies progress and enjoy the training very much. Highly recommend
