Dog training near Evesham Cheltenham and Tewkesbury

Gelert Behaviour Training is an independent company offering dog and other pet training services

We’re members of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and The Association of INTO Dogs.

How We Can Help

We teach you to train using force free, fun and effective modern scientific methods and take an holistic approach to your pet’s overall well being.

We are frequently asked to help with “problem” behaviours (there’s a list further down of some common examples) but we much prefer to work with you and a new pet to avoid any of these things happening. The earlier we teach you how to communicate with your pet, the easier life is for you and them!

We’d like to emphasise that we teach YOU what to do, so you can support your pet forever, and our goal is to empower you to make good decisions throughout your pet’s life.

Our Services

We offer one-to-one consultations to address problem behaviours, forming a training plan which we then help you to implement by making a plan to teach the various individual skills you and your pet need to overcome the problem and a management plan to keep you all safe whilst the learning is in progress.

We offer individual training with your pet in their normal environment (it could be at your home or on a walk, depending on what behaviours we are training) or at a safe outdoor venue where that is required. We have the facilities to practise skills in the presence of other animals, usually dogs, safely at a distance your dog is comfortable with.
