Unlock Your Dog's Full Potential

Welcome to my world of dog training, where fun, focus, and play take centre stage. We understand that each dog is unique, and their training needs vary. That's why we offer three distinct membership-based classes, each designed to bring out the best in your adult dog.

Option 1: Fun Focus Play Class

Transform Stressful Walks into Relaxed Jaunts

Say goodbye to the tugs and pulls during walks. In our Fun Focus Play Class, we're committed to ensuring the best experience for you and your dog.

Before you embark on this journey, we kindly request that you and your canine companion complete an assessment. This assessment is designed to determine if the Fun Focus Play Class is suitable for your dog. Our goal is to create a comfortable and safe environment for all participants. It also helps prevent reactive dogs from joining the class prematurely, as they may benefit from some one-on-one training first.

This way, you can ensure that our Fun Focus Play Class is the right fit for your dog and avoid any inconvenience during the training process.

Once your dog is assessed and approved, you'll dive into a world where walks become enjoyable and stress-free. It's not just about leash manners; we'll also cover crucial life skills, recalls, self-control, and more. Plus, once you become a member you can access a treasure trove of instructional training videos, a dedicated WhatsApp group for 24/7 support and connections with fellow members, plus many more membership benefits.

Option 2: Canine Hoopers Class

Discover the Joy of Agility Together

Are you and your dog ready for a playful challenge? Our Canine Hoopers Class offers multiple levels to match your experience and your dog's readiness.

Foundation Level: This level is perfect for those who have never tried hoopers or agility before. It's suitable for dogs over 10 months old. In the Foundation Course, we focus on introducing the equipment and teaching your dog to love running through hoops, tunnels, and around barrels. It's a fantastic starting point for the hoopers journey.

Beginners Class: If you and your dog have dabbled in agility or hoopers and are familiar with the equipment, the Beginners Class is ideal. Here, we build on the skills taught at the Foundation Level, starting to put together short sequences and courses. This class also lays the groundwork for distance handling, taking your teamwork to the next level.

Hoopers Improvers Class: Ready to take your hoopers skills to new heights? In the Hoopers Improvers Class, we focus on building distance and perfecting those distance handling skills. You'll tackle full-size hoopers courses, turning your dog into a hoopers expert.

Each of our Hoopers classes offers a unique experience tailored to your dog's abilities. Join the class that suits you best, and let the hoopers adventure begin!

Remember, regardless of your choice, all our classes operate on a membership basis, featuring a convenient monthly training fee. So, you can focus on enjoying the journey of learning, bonding, and joyful play with your furry friend.

Option 3: Rally Obedience Class

Boost Obedience and Rally Together

Discover the world of Rally Obedience, where obedience training meets engaging challenges and loads of fun. Rally Obedience is a unique dog sport that strengthens the bond between you and your dog while enhancing obedience skills.

In our Rally Obedience Class, you and your dog will embark on a journey of teamwork and precision. The rally courses are full of engaging challenges, each designed to boost your dog's confidence and focus. Rally combines obedience with agility, creating a dynamic and stimulating environment for your dog to thrive.

This class is perfect for dogs who thrive on structure and mental stimulation. You'll not only see your dog's obedience skills improve but also witness a transformation in their overall confidence and responsiveness.

Join our Rally Obedience Class and experience the joy of boosting obedience skills while having a blast with your furry friend.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

My first contact with Natasja at Nightsabre was after we rescued our Lurcher. Bracken was reactive to people and most especially other dogs, in most other areas she was what you would expect from an excitable 2-year-old with high energy and very high chase drive.

Natasja came to assess her needs and we started on one to one training sessions for the next 4 weeks, after which Natasja thought she may be ok to attend weekly mixed classes. All the while we practiced the skills that we had been taught and watched her progress from week to week.

We have benefited tremendously from Natasja teaching us how to help our dog, turns out our pup is pretty good!

I have been around dogs for years but have a much better understanding and level of communication now thanks to Natasja softly-softly and fun approach.

Bracken is already as good as we want her but we will continue to go to classes because it’s great fun for us both.

I highly recommend Natasja at Nightsabre, her love of dogs and ability to train their owners is clear to see."

Steve Jones

Owner of Bracken

My adolescent Hungarian Vizsla and I went to Natasja after she was recommended by a fellow Vizsla owner.

He had begun to react to other dogs and some humans. She was brilliant with us and taught me how to engage him in games which trained things like disengaging from triggers, how to settle on a mat, impulse control harnessing his gundog instincts and so much more.

With the patience of a saint she tolerated his goofy personality, cheeky jumping dog snogs and my awful habit of saying commands over and over and over!

We still use the techniques she gave us. Learning with Natasja fuelled a growing interest in dog behaviour and contributed to having the confidence to keep learning and to start working in the industry, walking reactive dogs.

I will always be grateful to her for helping both of us."

Helen Ward

Busy Reactive Dog Walker from Bournemouth

I started taking my dog to Hoopers training classes because he loves being with me and learning new things. We started attending Hoopers in March 2020.

In a fairly short time, Henry earned his Level 1 & 2 Rosettes. In order to achieve this, he had to learn to turn in different directions, to move away from me and to read my body language as this helps him to go in the right direction.

These skills are great fun at Hoopers classes but they are also useful when we are out on walks.

Natasja is an excellent trainer. She gives clear instructions and also demonstrates with her own dogs.

If Henry or I make a mistake Natasja pinpoints where I have gone wrong and helps me put it right. All the training is reward-based and there is no pressure on either dogs or handlers.

We are having fun, learning lots in the process and building a stronger bond between us."
