Welcome to Train Positive
THE HOME OF MODERN, FORCE FREE & HUMANE DOG TRAINING
At Train Positive we are passionate about using modern, gentle and force free methods to help our canine chums live a happy balanced life. Everything we do is centered around the needs of the dog. We offer help and advice for all dog behavioural issues (especially issues caused by stress and anxiety: fears, phobias, aggression, separation etc) as well as functional training services – please see details of some of the services further down this page. We believe we should work towards building a bond with our dogs, not try to physically dominate them. We should treat our dogs with respect and understanding at all times.

We are fully insured including public liability. We are a member of the ISCP. We are also full professional members of the Pet Professional Guild-The Association for Force-Free Pet Industry Professionals. Andrew does work in conjunction with the behavioural team at the RSPCA and he is the behavioural advisor for RSPCA Little Valley rescue centre. Andrew is the only locally approved trainer for the Blue Cross. We give a lot of our time and expertise to various community projects and this is an important aspect of the work we do.
I'm sorry but if you want a heavy handed, punishment led, quick fix approach then we are NOT the trainers for you! However if you want an effective, modern, humane and fun way to help your dog then get in touch!
We cover Paignton, Torquay, Brixham, Totnes, Dartmouth, Newton Abbot, Teignmouth, Dawlish, Exeter, Plymouth and South Devon - Happy to travel to other areas on request.
