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. Andrew is one of only a few Certified Canine Behaviourists in South Devon and is a full member of INTOdogs, a member of the Animal Behaviour Training Council, now seen as the gold standard for behaviour professionals. Andrew is the behavioural consultant for RSPCA Little Valley and is the only local professional approved to support the Blue Cross. Andrew works closely with local Vets and runs the behaviour clinics at Greenbay and Molecare.
Everything we do is centred on 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 cover Paignton, Torquay, Brixham, Totnes, Dartmouth, Newton Abbot, Teignmouth, Dawlish, Exeter, Plymouth and South Devon - Happy to travel to other areas on request. We are fully insured with Sanctuary Pet plan
