Welcome to Pippin Pets Dog Training

In Person training has restarted….

Adhering to the guidelines, we are now running our in person training again!

Puppy classes, scent work, intermediate (follow on from puppy for those that have done clicker training) and 121 are all now back.

Look on the WHAT I OFFER page and scroll down there for all the new dates in our new field in Shamley Green (between Cranleigh and Guildford)


Your dogs’ education journey is important, from the very start with arriving at your home and settling in, through puppy training and how to navigate the world, to sports and activities to keep their brains and body busy throughout their lives.

We believe the best relationship you can have is one based on trust, built by training without force, fear or pain. We fully subscribe to reward based training that is kind, effective and inclusive for all the family to get involved in.

We provide quality coaching to you through our 121 sessions giving a personalised programme of activities either in your home or at your local walking areas – the places where the training counts.

Pippin Pets also run classes south of Guildford (Surrey) to cover the local area and we limit the intake to small groups only so you get time and attention to help you with the new skills for your dog.  We have an outdoor venue in Shamley Green, and will be resuming indoor classes in Bramley/Chilworth in due course.

We are on Facebook (click here pippinpets Facebook) and Instagram (click here pippinpets Instagram) so follow us for the latest updates and useful information.

We just wanted to say thank you so much for today at the Loose Lead Walking Workshop!
It was the most friendly and informative dog training workshop we have ever been to and we all learnt so much – we know that Maggie really enjoyed it too!
Stephanie and Maggie, the Cockerpoo
Having never had a dog before, we thought it a good idea to get some friendly advice. Jo came and visited us a few days before our labradoodle puppy Marty arrived and got us well and truly prepared. Then, after a few days his training began. It was amazing and we can’t thank Jo enough. We shall definitely see her for a top up as he grows. Clever dog training worked brilliantly for our puppy and us!
Gail and Marty, The Labradoodle
We contacted Jo at Pippin Pet Services after we re-homed a one year old Dachshund. We didn’t know too much of the behavioural history or what training had been completed in the past. With Jo’s help we were able to address a few little issues and begin building on his training, session by session. Each lesson was informative and tailored to our specific needs. We now have a very happy, well behaved little dog who is a great addition to our family. Would definitely highly recommend Pippin Pet Services.
Robin and Ferdie, The Dachshund
Having had a Cairn before I knew they could be a challenge to train and so when our 9 week Cairn puppy arrived I soon realised I needed help. Jo from Pippin Pet Services was just the help we needed. As I cannot drive pet training was always going to need to be local. So what is more local than the training coming to your home! Brilliant! My dog and I were on familiar ground and Jo could see the behaviour that I needed help with (mine and the puppy’s!). We had five tailored sessions which included the basics of recall and attention along with other fun stuff. The plan l have now is to go back to Jo to develop the training so that I and my young dog are better equipped to be responsible and polite in public. I recommend you give PIPPIN a go!
Graham and Barley, The Cairn Terrier

I would like to thank Jo so much for her amazing training skills. I have never met someone who understands dogs so well. Her patience is second to none. She is reliable, kind, thoughtful and gave me the confidence to implement the training methods she suggested. I would not hesitate to recommend.

Sarah and Theo, the Cocker Spaniel

Jo was great at helping me to not feel so overwhelmed by this new born toddler, particularly with advising on toilet training!  Jo is very calm and has bundles of knowledge that she imparts at just the right level and pace in order for it to stick!  I’d definitely recommend the one to one at home training, and now we are continuing to practice what we’ve learned so far.

Kirsten and Cooper, the Labrador

Really enjoyed our 8 weeks of Beginners Scentwork.  Such a lovely relaxing way to spend an hour on Saturday morning.  Jo was super helpful and encouraging and it was lovely to see how all the dogs improved over the weeks.  A lovely supportive atmosphere and I would highly recommend Jo as a first stop into scentwork training.

Sue and Diesel, the labrador
