Our Story -
Cultured Canine Dog Training began in 2018, offering Puppy and group classes, 1-2-1 behaviour work & dog walking. Since then, the business has grown exponentially until we were running 9 group classes per week from puppy to advanced and individual private sessions throughout the week. Cultured Canine Dog Training was created with an emphasis on training being fun for both dog and human. Our family friendly classes allow the whole family to get involved and feel at ease to ask questions and advice throughout. Private sessions allow tailoring of training and behaviour work in a completely non-judgemental, reward based way. We use the most up-to-date theory and methods to deliver all of our training with reqular CPD to keep us up to date.
In June 2022, we have re-incorporated dog walking to our services with the addition of Natasha to the team. We now also offer Dog Grooming & Pet Photography and our name was changed to Cultured Canine Dog Services to reflect this.
We cover all areas in the north of york (Easingwold, Strensall Haxby, Thirsk, Malton, Tollerton, Huby, Clifton Moor) plus central York.
What Services do we offer?We offer a range of services which can be found in our tabs at the top of the page. These include group training classes, at home private sessions and behaviour sessions, group walks, workshops, grooming and photography!
What is your Training Style?We believe in keeping up-to-date with the latest understanding and research in dog behaviour. This includes yearly CPD. Our methods reflect this and we firmly believe a reward based, motivational based approach to training offers both you and your dog the greatest success. This means we will NEVER recommend pain or physical punishment to change your dog's behaviour.

How many sessions will I need?This is a question we get asked often and there is no set answer - it depends on how many you would like! We do not pretend to come and change your dog's behaviour in one hour but we will give you the techniques and plan required to do this yourselves. Some people prefer hands on help from this point, others prefer to do this on their own. This is totally your choice! Behaviour packages and Block bookings can be found on our "Training Packages" tab.
