Based in Newcastle our dog training service is tailored to you. Jigsaw Dogs will visit you and work with you and your dog at home. Some dogs (and handlers) find this approach much more relaxing and less threatening than a class, and progress is often much quicker on a one-to-one basis. By visiting you at the home, we can fully appreciate the nature of the challenge you may be facing with no conflicting distractions to you or your dog. With in home consultations training generally progresses quicker, as dogs feel less threatened and more relaxed. This goes for the owners too!
Our service extends to disabled clients wishing to train their dogs to assist or to become the perfect companion.
Our opening hours are:
Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5.30pm
Weekends by arrangement

Jigsaw Dogs does travel.
