Discover your dog’s world!
Learn and connect with positive dog training & behaviour
From the smallest puppy to the largest dog we are learning all about the dog’s world
Our mission is to watch, teach and learn how to help puppies/dogs and families connect through reward based training.
Fun, supportive and non-intimidating training is the path to a more harmonious environment where dogs and humans live together.
We work alongside you to find a training structure which will focus on your family and life.
This allows us to tailor the training to gain the best results for your unique journey.
The Dog Log is Nathan & Louisa, a husband and wife team of dog trainers based in Northumberland.
Currently, Nathan is delivering in person training and has just completed his BSc in Canine Behaviour management. I am working away in the background developing packages and talking to you all on email and the phone.
We really like to get to know what makes each family tick and welcome you into our dog training community.
WE ARE THE DOG LOG
Dog training for all the family
Our new venue offers us the opportunity to really customise the training and control the environment.
Some of the training will require out and about experiences but for all venue focused training we are excited to welcome you to our new venue in Kirkley just outside Ponteland.
As a family-focused business our courses will mostly follow school terms, which means the price will vary slightly depending on the number of weeks in that half term. We will offer one off special classes and workshops over school holidays.
Either subscribe to or follow us on our social media to keep in touch and see the videos we produce or enroll on one of our uniquely designed training classes to work with us to make sure your new family pet understands all the basics taught with positivity and fun.
for puppy classes
Getting things off to a good start is so important with our puppies when they enter our family home.
Our puppy socialisation classes will provide you with this. Instead of the slightly predictable pattern of teaching sit, down and stay we will be focusing on real life scenarios.
You will of course learn sit, down and stay if you want however these dynamic classes offer a lot more.
If the puppies are able and ready they can be off lead, we will discuss your needs on a weekly bases via our private Facebook group and you can even organise walks with other classmates in our field to practise your new found skills.
dog behaviour issues
Sometimes things can go a little sideways on our dogs’ journeys and they can become anxious about something.
This can lead to some behaviours that are harder for us to deal with on our own.
Some examples are aggression (either towards humans or other dogs), separation anxiety, lead frustration, resource guarding, fear of the car and many more.
This is where Nathan’s excellent knowledge can help. He has spent years studying canine behaviour at university to ensure he brings you a high standard of support.
“Fantastic training sessions from Nathan went from being at our wits end with a puppy that kept us up all night to a full nights sleep and a much happier puppy – made a huge difference to how we are managing these early settling in problems.”
