The Wheelhouse Vets Dog Training School

Hello and Welcome to our Dog training page!

 In June 2013 we officially started running our very own Wheelhouse Vets Dog training school which is held at our Chalfont St Giles surgery in our paddock behind the practice.

  • For regular updates on whats going on at  the training school please check out their Facebook page.
  • Laura has a particular interest in animal behaviour and has achieved a BSc(Hons) in Applied animal behaviour. She is also a provisional member of the UK registry of canine Behaviourists and the Association of Pet Behaviour Counselors, and an APDT (Association of pet dog trainers) approved instructor.
  • Anna is an Agility Club Approved Instructor and also competes regularly with her Border Terrier Isla and aim to do the same with her other dog, Sprite who is a Working Sheepdog.
  • Agility has arrived at the Wheelhouse Dog Training School! It has been a very exciting project and we are thrilled to announce that we are now fully equipped and classes are underway. 

If you are interested in coming to Agility as a newcomer or someone already with Agility experience then please email Anna Rayne on

121 Training Sessions

These sessions can be arranged either at your own home or another suitable location (depending on the aims of the session). A 121 session is 1 hour long and is suitable for specific training issues, or for those dogs who can not cope with a class environment.

Training issues frequently dealt with include; jumping up, mouthing, recall issues and pulling on the lead.

Please email Laura at or contact her on 07931566921 to arrange a training session.
