Padders Dog Training
Welcome to Padders dog Training, a small and friendly dog club running in the Runcorn area, easily accessible by road or local bus serving people in Runcorn, Widnes, Warrington and surrounding areas.
The club is open to all dogs no matter what age or size who will benefit from training, as do their handlers. Classes are kept small and each dog and handler are assessed for their individual needs. One to one training and home visits are available, these are particularly helpful if your dog has specific behavioural problems.
The club is run by Jenny Thomson, A Fully Qualified instructor with the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers, with over 30 years of experience in handling dogs.
We are pleased to announce that we are now taking bookings for training classes (currenlty on a Saturday morning) and one to one sessions:
For training classes we follow the latest Government COVID-19 guidelines, training classes are currenlty being run outdoors.
As places are limited if you are interested in booking a place please contact me directly by phone to be allocated your place.
There are several conditions that must be adhered to and these will be explained at the time you make your enquiry.
We are also now able to resume our boarding service, again to follow the current COVID-19 guidelines and for everyone’s safety places are limited. Please call for further details

Feedback Forms - Home Boarding
As part of my efforts to improve your dog’s stay with us I've have added a couple of feedback forms (on the Forms page) they will take a few minutes to complete. Obviously, I can't insist that you complete them but I would really appreciate it if you would take the time. There are two types, one "on-line" version that you can complete on your PC, save and then e-mail. There is also an "off-line" version which you can save to your PC, print off and complete by hand and then post or hand to me next time you see me.
Once again, any feedback would be much appreciated.

"Jenny demonstrates a commitment to the welfare of the dogs in her care and to the development of both owners and dogs skills and confidence in the class and one to one sessions. One of the things I appreciate about Jenny’s classes is that she is prepared to work with dogs that present challenging behaviours, whilst ensuring that others are not disadvantaged by this."
"Having known Jenny since the late 1980s when meeting her I am consistently impressed with Jenny’s knowledge, commitment, theoretical and practical skills. Jenny is an outstanding dog trainer who has a deep understanding of the theories and can translate this into her life with dogs and can pass on this knowledge, skill and enthusiasm to her clients."
