At New Beginnings Assistance Dogs, our team provides a professional dog training service.
From basic obedience to complex tasks, we provide a comprehensive training program that ensures each Assistance Dog is well-equipped to help their handler live a more independent life.
We understand that having an Assistance or Therapy dog shouldn’t be a financial burden, so we strive to make our services as affordable as possible.
We offer owner-led training from the comfort of your own home with weekly face-to-face sessions and help and support available when required.
Our focus is on delivering a positive, reward-based approach to ensure that you and your dog have the best chance of success.
New Beginnings Assistance Dogs work in partnership with the Animal Behaviour Centre (ABC).
ABC is owned and managed by Kennel Club Accredited Instructors (KCAI Companion Dog Advanced Level, KCGCDS Advanced Level) and are Regional Mentors for the KCAI scheme.
