Dog Training and Puppy Classes

Our popular obedience training and puppy classes are conveniently located between Bristol and Bath, in Keynsham and are available to dogs of all ages, including puppies.

Please note that dog training classes are temporarily suspended. We apologise for the inconvenience and encourage you to check back for further information at a later date.

We have a combined experience in training dogs in excess of 25 years and we've trained dogs in a number of key disciplines including; basic obedience training and developing working dogs for the police and prison services.

Nowadays we take things a little less seriously, offering obedience training for dogs of all ages, including puppy socialisation.  We work together with you and at your pace to get the best from you and your dog.  We train outdoors all year round.  During the autumn and winter months, classes are held at the weekend and during the summer months classes are held on weekday evenings.  

To attend a class or if you would like to see how we do things then you are welcome to drop by.  All we ask is that you dog is up to date with their vaccinations. So, if you dread the thought of walking your dog in a public area, have a problem dog, or cringe when your dog doesn't come back to you in the park, you should pop in and have a chat with us.  Who knows, you could go on to achieve a Kennel Club Good Citizens Award if you work hard enough!

  • Robert, Janet and Ian are clearly knowledgeable, experienced and genuine animal lovers. There has never been the slightest cause for concern during the many years we have taken our dogs there, we have complete confidence in Latchets. Anne & Eric Cox
  • Our dog loves the kennels, she rushes to greet everyone on arrival, and tail wagging, goes to her kennel. We feel she is in safe hands, and is happy during her stay. Gill & Rod Watkins
  • We have been using Latchets Boarding Kennels for 15 years now and wouldn't go anywhere else. Our dogs have always had excellent care and attention, looked after by friendly, caring experienced staff. Mrs A. J. Clelland
  • I know spike was a handful and aggressive with other dogs but you guys never judged him and I was always comfortable knowing you cared for him. Vicki Moore
