We believe that we can use our brains rather than our brawn to train our dogs, without pain or force being applied. We know that behavior that is rewarded will be repeated, and therefore we work to set ourselves and our dogs up to succeed so that they can practice getting it right in order to form socially acceptable habits, and learn in a positive manner how to live their lives with us, and us with them.




Classes and events currently available can only be booked online.  We also have "Waiting list" classes in Bookwhen so if you don't see a class that suits please sign up for the wait list and then we can contact you when a class becomes available. We run classes on a 10 week term with both weekend and weeknight options.


About us

Central Allbreeds Dog Training School recently celebrated fifty years of training and is a fun, family-oriented, friendly club for all dogs (no matter what breed or mix of breeds) and their owners, promoting training with positive reinforcement techniques.

We can help you achieve the best relationship with your dog. Activities we teach include lifestyle (domestic) training, Rally-O, agility, flygility, scenting and anything else that's positive and fun that owners would like to teach their dogs to do.

Dogs need to be over four months old and fully vaccinated. Our only other criteria are that the training is fun, and that you both enjoy it!
