The Woof Pack offers group classes to clientele across Halifax, Calderdale and Littleborough.
Our groups cover skills every companion dog needs to know, from looselead walking, settling, recall to building focus
We are specialised in working breeds, and offer a wide range of workshops and courses, designed specifically with those breeds in mind, including Scent work, Gun-dog, and Herding Breed workshops.
With gentle reward-based training methods, consistency, patience and determination, there is no problem that we cannot help you with. We don’t use any gimmicks, we just use scientifically proven methods of dog training.
I believe trainers should offer support, training and knowledge to better help owners understand and communicate with their companions. Training should be fun and enjoyable for both dog and owner. We should be kind, fair and consistent when we are teaching our dogs.
We only use proven methods that work.
All training is done with the dogs' well being at the centre.
It is based upon kind, fair and effective methods.
Wish your dog walked nicely on lead? Fed up of having your arm ripped out of your socket?
