CDTS Pedigree

Our Pedigree

Cranbourne Dog Training School (CDTS) is based in Berkshire, with classes held in Bracknell, Winkfield Row and Holyport (between Maidenhead and Windsor).

CDTS is very different in its attitude to both training and behavioural problems.  Our holistic approach to training involves looking at the whole dog, including making pet owners aware that diet, physical health & stress can have an adverse effect on behaviour.

We believe training should be kind, fun and motivating for your dog so we use a reward-based method (treats and toys) to help you get the best out of your canine friend.

Our professional team of Instructors regularly update their continuing personal development by attending seminars and courses on behaviour, health issues & training. We are committed to helping you get the best out of your dog, thus improving your relationship together.

If you are thinking of feeding a raw food diet to your dog, Nutriment (was formerly Natural Instinct) is, in our opinion, the best raw food diet available, using only human grade meat and vegetables in their recipes. Please visit their website.
