Dorset Paws is reward-based and force-free dog training located in New Milton, Christchurch and Bournemouth!

We help set your dog up to be a well-rounded, confident and respectful individual. What’s more, we teach you how to help your dog in a wide variety of situations, even those we can’t practice in class or during a one to one. It’s not just about learning tricks, it’s about learning how to get through life confidently and stress free.
