…And Two become 1
Up until the pandemic we had 3 businesses at Kamp K9 we had Doggie Daycare, Dog Training and Dog Breeding…
Sadly the Doggie Daycare had to go, people were working from home so no longer needed anyone to care for their dogs and when the rules changes they became impossible for us to sustain. So we took the hard decision to stop doing Daycare (never say forever, but for the foreseeable future)
The Training stopped and move to online training which is doable but you don’t seem to get the same camaraderie that you do in a class.
We have since started one to one Training as we can set that up safely and keep our distance.
So we have decided to move all business together so from now on collectively we will be know at
Duncansdoodles Training Academy
Highly Acclaimed Dog Breeders
What is Concept Training?
A way of shaping your dogs brain to give them the tools they need to correct behaviours and cope with any situation life throws at them.
What are the concepts?

For a dog who chooses to stay close to you and keeps checking in with you often.
Can Listen and think and still respond in the face of a distraction.

Games Based Training
Why I have a chosen Games based training for Duncansdoodles?
About 12 years ago we adopted a beautiful red fox Labrador who’s name was Kerri, during her first season she had an altercation with a couple of dogs which really altered her mind set on dogs, where at first she loved to play with dogs now she was very fearful and weary of them and her go to method was attack before your hurt me!! We sought help and came across a Trainer 1 (an aversive trainer) who believed that Kerri was being dominant and we had to ‘put her in her place’ - it breaks my heart to think I went along with this method and it actually made her 10 times worse than she was so back to the drawing board!
Next I studied to be a Trainer 2 ( a lure based Trainer) these methods got results and helped our girl to learn to turn her attention from the dogs to us but we could never trust her 100% because if we weren’t there or we missed that other dog coming into sight she would attack again!! Fast forward 10 years and we found Concept training so a shout out here for Absolute Dogs who changed our lives.
So now everyone here at Duncansdoodles undergoes courses to help us with our knowledge and spreading the knowledge of Games Based Training not only is it fun, we have a smile on our face training it and our dogs love playing games, which gives a great relationship with our dogs. This also spreads out to all our customers that buy our puppies (puppies start concept training as soon as they are on their feet) but also now we are delivering lessons out in our local community.
Lessons begin from £15 for a 1 to 1 training session - we tailor the training to suit each dog. Every dog is an individual and we ALWAYS train the dog in front of us.

‘Pro Dog Training’ & ‘Geek’
which opens up more Opportunity for us to give you, in order to help your puppy/dog along with their training and understanding the world around them.
Giving you all a more fulfilled life together.
Someone asked me…When is my dog ‘trained’ the honest answer to this is, the journey of training never ends. Thinks about it?? When does our learning stop? I’d say, NEVER there is always something in the world we never knew we never knew and every day there is always something new to learn. The same can be said of your dog, they always want to learn, to interact with you, to play with you and learn about the world around them. So it’s our job to facilitate that for them to help them live a long and fulfilling life.
