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.

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.
