About Us

Who we are and what we do

Founded in 2009, Pets In Partnership provides an array of high quality dog training and pet behaviour services designed to help support you and your pet from the day you bring them home and throughout their lives. Our dynamic team brings a wealth of qualified and hands on experience not only from within the behaviour and training side of life, but also from within the Veterinary & grooming worlds and from competitive sports & showing environments.

Where the need arises, we offer services within your home. However, most of our services are held on site at our training centre in Rayleigh, where we have the following facilities:

·      An indoor training facility with heating, a group training arena, private consult space, viewing area, amenities & mini bespoke shop.

·      A Second indoor consultation space for private one to one work.

·      Outdoors we have 3 interconnected fully secure grass paddocks with lighting. Two are solely for class training, positioned away from the public footpaths. We also have a 2 acre field for our advanced and tracking groups.

·      We also have access to other fabulous off-site venues for relevant activities.

We strive to make your pet owning journey as smooth and as fun as possible. Our ethos and focus consist of having:

A Pet-Centric Approach

Transparency and Trust

A Community Connection

Making Things Understandable For You

Helping you navigate the wealth of available information out there as you work with your dogs and pets is at the core of what we strive to do, and we’ll liaise with other professionals to try and provide a smooth network of support for you as and when needed.

Our behaviour help includes the option of Flower and Gem Essences with a qualified practitioner. In addition to our core classes and consultancy, we run comprehensive extras worth keeping an eye out for, including:

•Different canine sports activities which you can simply take part in for fun, or if the bug catches you, we can help you to competition rings.

• A wide variety of workshops & webinars that get scheduled throughout each year.

• The hosting of National & International Trainers

Our Classes

Pet Dog And Sports Classes

Our pet dog classes sit at the heart of our services, laying a solid core foundation of training with starting options for all, be it puppies, teenage dogs or adults.
The courses evolve up the levels to our fun-loving advanced groups and include opportunities to achieve the Kennel Club Good Citizens Medal Tests along the way. Our Pet Dog classes also provide a great spring board for successfully jumping into sports activities, either with us or anywhere else.

Our Workshops And Webinars

Here at Pets In Partnership, we run a range of workshops, seminars & webinars which aim to either help you and your dog(s) together on specific things, or provide some extracurricular fun. These can include Whistle Training, K9 First Aid, Separation Anxiety, K9 communication, Leadwalking, Recall and much more.


Everyone is so friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Classes are very well presented, structured and therefore interesting for both us humans and our dogs.

The best advantage of the classes for me was to course correct and tweak some of commands I was giving where it wasn’t quite working. I really needed that support as it’s easy to get disheartened when your dog isn’t getting it. We went on to take the next level training course and it’s good to know the team are there if things go awry in future.
