About us

Mellor Dog School is run by Hayley, who is a fully qualified instructor with many years of experience. Qualified with Distinction, in Animal Behavioural studies through Myerscough Agricultural College, Canine Reactive Behaviour Diploma and Security Guard dog handler NASDU Level 3 certificate. Hayley ensures that owners and their dogs enjoy training, whilst receiving the best possible advice and guidance. We cover all aspects, from puppies to adult dogs which includes Canine Reactive Behaviour. We offer advice on nutrition and feeding regimes, house training and health issues.

We use Marker Training which is a verbal marker followed by a reward, which we have found bridges the gap between humans and dogs. Hayley offers one to one sessions or group classes.

It is so important to create a bond between you and your dog. Establishing boundaries, equivalent to pack structure in most animals, will make for greater harmony in your household.

The classes are devised to be fun, encouraging you and your dog to work together, and have a better bond.

Mellor Dog School is established at Huntley's Country Stores, along the A59 near to BAE Systems at Mellor Brook. We have a covered venue with a new surface laid down with Astra Turf, so don't worry about the weather.

We have a variety of classes, including evening and daytime classes, please see our classes timetable for full details

The school is set up for all breeds and ages of dog and is suitable for all levels of ability. With group classes or one to one lessons, there is a type of dog and puppy class suitable for everyone.

So whatever age or ability of your dog, we have a class suited to their needs, be it one to one sessions, puppy, any age, advanced, sheepdog, gun dog classes or aggression issues.
