We can show you how to train your dog using only reward based methods in order to build a lasting bond and to reach your dog’s potential. We aim to show you how to teach your dog to be a polite member of society!

“I adopted a Romanian street dog whose behaviour has been very challenging to say the least. He has had a really rough time and was showing fear aggression towards people visiting the home and at the vets surgery. My vet recommended Angela at Polite Paws Dog Training and I made contact straight away. From my initial contact Angela has been amazing. She has been incredibly supportive and offered sound advice. She visited us at home, gave me lots of work to do and has kept in contact since, offering help when needed. Her positive reinforcement training works incredibly well. My boy is a work in progress but with Angela’s support we are making headway. I would have no problem in wholeheartedly recommending her.”
