Workshops for dogs of all ages

Despite the popular saying that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” we at Askan-K9 Training firmly believe that dogs of any age or ability can learn. We offer a variety of workshops that are tailored to your specific training goals, providing a fun and supportive environment where your pet can learn new skills and discipline.

Our training philosophy emphasizes positive reinforcement, with plenty of praise, cuddles, and treats. We understand that dog training is an ongoing process that requires patience, time, and consistency, so we work closely with owners to teach them effective training methods that can be practised at home between sessions, ensuring continued progress over the years.
