Barking buds academy

As a company we thrive on developing new ways to train and teaching others how to train their dogs. We want to be able to pass our knowledge to others and work with them in developing a career with Barking Buds or in the animal world. 

This programme has been created for children aged 9+ who want to learn how to train dogs and gain experience in the dog training world. It is a fun, interactive programme where the children learn:

  • Dog training knowledge 
  • Dog Knowledge
  • Gain experience with different breeds
  • Personal Development 

And so much more!

There is nothing like this programme in the UK and we are excited to be welcoming children into the world of training and potentially becoming the dog trainers of the future!

Please be aware that the children will not be working with dogs every week but will learning through fun activities which will prepare them to work with the dogs in Dog Week.

Classes are held on:

Tuesdays 5-6pm, Friday 5-6pm and 6-7pm
