About Us:-

I, Janet Martineau, and  Sandra Hill have trained and taught together for more than twenty years. We use play and motivational methods and between us we have a great deal of experience of many breeds. We can suggest ideas to suit day to day management and we have training techniques that will help you to understand your dog at all levels of competitive training - and we both firmly believe that a trained dog is a happy dog - because it is obedient it can have more freedom and fun and enjoys the lessons and training time which give it a purpose.

Our Classes:- 

We hold classes out of doors, on short level grass. Car parking is right on the field.

Our day for classes at the moment is a Tuesday.  Winter start time 2.15pm. We have to work to the daylight hours so that means a changeover from evening to afternoon in the winter. The date on which we change over for the Summer time will be 16th April when we will continue the classes in the same manner but starting at 7.00pm

New owners and their dogs are always welcome.

Naughty or nice!! We love to help.

Come and see what we do. 


It's 2019.  Happy New Year.

The classes will change to evenings and start at 7.00pm on 16th April. 

The field is always free for you to come and give your dogs a safe run and play if that would be what would help.  

If anyone wants any help with a training problem  you can contact Janet by phone on 01684-292288. Or Sandra on 01905-371269. We can then arrange a one to one lesson.



I am Janet Martineau.  Amongst other things I have been Obedience Correspondent for the national canine newspaper Our Dogs from 1983 till 2011.

I have worked with dogs since I was a teenager. Breeding, boarding, and stripping and trimming all breeds. I have trained at Cheltenham and District Dog Training Club since it started in 1956. I have owned and trained Bearded Collies, a Crossbred, a Border Terrier, a Lowchen, a German Shepherd and a Border Collie. Several of them up to class C in competitive Obedience, and in Working Trials.

Sandra Hill has for more than twenty years owned and trained German Shepherds to the highest standard in both Obedience and Working Trials. She also took in a small shaggy stray crossbred which she trained with great success to a high level in Obedience, and then there was Toby, a red and white Papillon who also went on to do extremely well in Obedience, competing for the Midland Team at Crufts and winning many classes. Her latest is Rowan a large handsome German Shepherd who in his first season has won two Novice Classes, three Class A's and has placed several times in class B.
