Local Dog Trainers

Over the years we have had the pleasure or working with and getting to know some local dog trainers in Taunton and Bridgwater. Maya and myself have used all of the trainers on this top recommended list and they each get a massive recommendation from us!

SWAT – Somerset West Agility Training


Located in Pawlett near J24 of the M5. If you’re looking to start up with your dog or are looking for a new place to train, SWAT is a great group to be involved with. I have been a member for a number of years and run Brody and Maya in classes. Toni, Jo and Tash are fantastic teachers. It is a great way to bond with your dog, teach them something new and tire them out! SWAT have a real sense of community and everyone and their dogs are friendly and welcoming!

Catherine Tomlinson


Catherine and her team are great for puppy training or the next level up. We have been using Catherine as a family for years. The aim is for dogs and puppies to learn new things using positive reinforcement techniques. Catherine also does house visits for anyone struggling with behavioural problems with their four legged friends!
