Dog Training Profile for your dog from one of our expert trainers


About us

The business is owned by Les and Denise Forshaw, both graduates of Liverpool University – Les in Mechanical Engineering and Denise in Dentistry. Les and Denise are married with four children.

Les worked as a professional engineer travelling extensively throughout the world. However it was dog training and handling that was his real interest and he spent as much time as possible training dogs for himself and other people. Many of the dogs were trained to trial standard. He now has over 25 years experience of training dogs.

In 1989 Les and Denise decided to make it a full-time business and obtained planning permission for a purpose built kennels. After a major investment in facilities the business was started and grew rapidly to become established as one of the premier kennels in the North-West of England. It has been very successful and continues to develop year by year.

As the business expanded other staff were brought in to increase the range of services provided. We are now able to offer specialist dog grooming, cat boarding in addition to dog training and boarding.

The original aim of the business was to provide quality animal care and services and we are continuously trying to improve on the standards we set.
