Teaching People to Train Dogs


We teach skills and share knowledge that is based on up to date, positive, scientifically proven methods to help you enjoy your family dog every day.  We focus on essential life skills for dogs and their people that can be tailored to the unique life of your family and your dog.

 

Training Classes

We offer classes for puppies, adolescents and adult dogs, teaching skills to help you raise a well-rounded, confident, family dog.


Private Training

We offer private training sessions that are 100% tailored to your dog, your life and your family. Need help now? We offer a helpline if you need assistance in a hurry.


Personalised Advice

We offer a private, personalised advice service for advice on new additions to your family, whether they have little paws or little feet and many other dog related subjects.

 

Enjoy Life with your Dog


We believe that everyday life for dogs and their people should be as free and fun as possible.  We love getting out and about with our dog; going to the woods, shops, cafes, high-street – anywhere that is dog friendly.  We often meet people who can’t enjoy outings with their dog due to behaviour issues (their dog doesn’t come back when called or their dog jumps on people etc.) or confidence issues (their dog is nervous of other dogs / people / traffic etc).

We wish to help to remove or reduce these freedom blockers by teaching skills and sharing knowledge that will help you to build a great relationship with your dog, whilst helping your dog successfully navigate our modern, hectic world. Of course, every dogs’ everyday life is unique, so we teach fundamental skills that can be tailored to your everydog life.

Best Start in Life


Raising a well-mannered, confident, family dog takes time, patience, knowledge and skill.  

​Our knowledge and skill is based on positive, scientifically backed techniques to ensure your puppy is introduced to his world in a way that will set you and your puppy up for confidence and success.

Safety


Whilst many children and dogs live together happily and safely, dog bites to young children are a serious concern.  We believe that with positive socialisation and education on how best to keep both dogs and children safe the number of bites could fall significantly.

Safety


Dog bites are continuing to rise in the UK; many of those bitten are children.  We believe that with positive socialisation and education on how best to keep both dogs and children safe, these numbers could fall.

  • “This has been fantastic help for me and my crazy little staffy; Minx. I was given sound advice and a great enrichment program for Minx. We struggled with her being occupied indoors or when the weather was bad and she wouldn’t go out but would need stimulation. 

    Many thanks for all your help Everydog life skills! :-)”

  • “Sarah is fantastic! My little pup took to her from the 1st meeting responding to all her commands. Sarah is also very good at teaching humans too… The techniques she uses are easy to learn and super effective. I would highly recommend her any day.”

    Sheila, family and Charlie
    Cippenham, Slough

  • “Sarah helped our family with caring for Henry, a one-year old Labrador we re-homed. She gave us invaluable advice about routine and care as well as lots of games we could play to improve his behaviour and keep his brain busy too. The sessions were really good fun and we were able to do them as a family as Sarah really engaged the children. The first week Henry was pretty much out of control; jumping at everyone and pulling our arms out of their sockets on walks! Although there is still plenty of work to do, the improvement is outstanding, and we are even managing some off-lead time! Thank you so very much Sarah (and Wilma) for all your fantastic help.”

    Natalie and Charlie

    Steve, Sparky and family

  • “We booked some private lessons with Everydog Life Skills before we moved to Spain with our dog Tank.  We wanted to work on teaching Tank to come back to us as soon as he was called as we were worried that he could get into trouble in Spain.  The lessons were really helpful, we all enjoyed them (including Tank and my son) and Tank now comes back as soon as we call him.  Thank you”

    Roz, Danny and Tank

  • “Our Cocker Spaniel loved meeting Sarah for home sessions and at the puppy classes. Sarah is very calm and patient, and always came prepared with things to explore. We have been able to ask questions and have had advice on everything from toileting to dealing with how he loves to chase the cats. We have learnt a lot of skills and behaviours, and one of the simplest, but most valuable to us, was learning the values of rewards. After each session we have had reminder and information sheets to re-cap the class and give us the prompt to extend the activities. Thank you for all your help and support”

    Louise, Ryan and Biscuit
    Slough, Berkshire

  • “My German Shepherd X Rottweiler who is 4 months had private sessions and Group sessions. The only thing I could say it was absolutely amazing to have my puppy trained by Sarah at Everydog Life Skills. She helped us a lot and the group sessions are really informative and helpful also great as their many breeds at the sessions which is great for your puppy to socialise with. Thanks”

    Hassan & Zeus

  • “We needed help with learning how to keep our dog calm post surgery, and Sarah went above and beyond by creating a whole, varied daily routine for him which was extremely helpful. She proved to be an excellent trainer for my dog and myself (I have learned a lot from her). She is all about positive training and my dog loves her

    Anna & Kai

  • “We were really pleased with the classes.  The classes certainly made me feel more confident with the pups and dog behaviour in general.  The classes gave me some insight into dog interaction and behaviour which I was not aware of before.  The pups certainly loved the classes and learnt a thing or two.  They are socialised which I am pleased with.  Overall the sessions were useful.”

    Ginder, Nis, Rufus & Zeus

    Slough, Berkshire

  • “We have learned useful tricks to help Ralph in situations to help him feel secure.  Also having him leave things has been really helpful.  We have really enjoyed the classes and also had extra advice for when our baby arrives.  Thank you”
