Positive dog training that feels good & delivers the results you dream of

Training your dog can be a world of fun!

You don’t have to choose between feeling good and getting results with your dog.
You can achieve wonderful results and have fun in the process.

Hi! I’m Alex,

I’m a professional dog trainer, horse enthusiast, and dedicated fan of injecting fun and variety into dog training, so that outstanding results are a joy for you to achieve.

Does your dog pull on the lead, refuse to come back when called, or jump all over everybody you meet?

If life with your dog isn’t quite as you imagined, don’t panic. You’re not alone.

And you may be surprised at how enjoyable it can be to teach your dog what you’d like them to do, so you can relax and enjoy the companionship you dreamed of with your dog.

It’s important to me that all of my clients (and their dogs) feel relaxed, at ease and fully supported throughout. If you’ve not undertaken any training with your dog before, you might be feeling a tad nervous, worried that your dog will show you up, or just completely unsure of what to expect.

Relax, you’re in good company. I’m friendly, open, and I have a very good sense of humour. I promise your dog won’t shock me, whatever shenanigans he has up his sleeves!

Whether you’re looking for puppy training classes, adult dog training classes, one-to-one support, or a fun activity to do with your dog that’ll boost your bond and improve behaviour, I’d love to help!

And if you’re not sure exactly what you need, but you know you want some friendly advice and guidance from a trusted professional – then please get in touch, and I can help guide you in the right direction.

Teaching people how to encourage the behaviours they want from their dog while having a jolly good time together brings me the greatest joy. Modern, positive dog training is not only kind, it’s effective (and fun!)

“What a change a good dog trainer can make. We adopted our puppy at seven months, and while he’s a great dog, his recall wasn’t reliable.

Alex taught us a surefire way to get him to come running. We are so appreciative. And thanks also for the equipment and feeding tips! Alex is a real pro.”

About Me

My passion for dogs began as a small child when my Grandfather gifted me a Collie Cross. I loved her dearly but she was a complete nutter! She was great with cats and in fact, our cat used to join us for walks back then sometimes!  

I founded Bracken Dog Training in 2013 and I think if I had my beautiful nutty Collie now she’d be a very different dog! 

I have learned the art of positive dog training through working alongside many great dog trainers and taking part in a variety of seminars, workshops, and courses. What was once a hobby, is now my career, and it brings me so much joy. 

I am a member of the Pet Professional Guild and a qualified Scentwork UK trainer. 

What started as a childhood love, is now my life’s work and I’d love to share my experience with you to help you enhance the life you share with your dog.

“I’ve now taken adolescent classes, gundog training, and general obedience classes at Bracken Dog training, and I cannot believe the difference in our Labrador.

Lola has changed from being anxious, over-excitable, and not listening to a calm, focused but still fun-loving dog.

I now get compliments about how well-behaved she is when we’re out on our walks!

It’s definitely been down to the helpful guidance, patience, and knowledge from Alex in her classes, which Lola and I have really enjoyed. I would definitely recommend.”

We have completed Gundog and scentwork training. I would highly recommend Bracken dog training.”
