At Walkabout Hounds we are passionate about all things canine!
We are professional and experienced dog trainers and dog training instructors.

Established in 2010, Walkabout Hounds Training Centre has evolved over the years through the hard work and dedication of its owners Davina and James Wiles. Through a combination of personal dog training experience of over 20 plus years and a wealth of knowledge gained from numerous up to date education courses, seminars and workshops, we have developed our training programs to be able to teach you and your dog all the skills needed to have a healthy, happy well mannered dog. It is part of our ethos to constantly improve our own training and skill levels so that we can offer the best possible experience for you and your dogs.

Our Training Centre is set on a farm and the building is purely dedicated to dogs. The shop is divided between a Natural Treats haven, raw dog food provider and all the possible training equipment you could need for your dogs. 2 dog training arenas provide ample space to have classes and 121 sessions running concurrently between the trainers Davina and James.

Davina is a Member of the Guild of Dog Trainers and an Approved IABTC Pet Dog Trainer. James is a Master Dog Trainer with the Guild of Dog Trainers.
