Canine Training and Behaviour

New puppy in the house? Want to build a great relationship with your dog?
Dog causing mayhem?  Is 'man's best friend' being your worst enemy?
Want to have some fun with your dog?

Animal Magic offer several formats for training and behaviour.  From in person private sessions through to online group sessions just for fun. We cover all your dog training and behaviour needs.
Private sessions can be held at our outdoor location, in your own home, out and about in the real world or online via Zoom. These sessions are tailored to meet your individual requirements.  

Our group training sessions have restricted numbers attending and cover every day good manners for both puppies and adults, KC rally, KC competitive obedience and we even add a splash of tricks to help enhance your training skills.  Classes are held in Birdlip, Innsworth and online.

We offer assessments for the APDT Good Companion Awards and the KC Good Citizen Scheme.

Animal Magic’s Senior Trainer, Claire Stewart, who also runs Animal Magic Pet Care Gloucester, has vast experience both with her own dogs and through other training schools. In 2003, Claire was invited to start taking classes at two local dog training clubs and complemented this teaching experience with academic and practical study. She graduated from Bishop Burton College with full distinctions and a HNC in Canine Behaviour and Training in November 2005, followed by a further four years study and graduated as Student of the Year from Bishop Burton College/Hull University with a full honours degree (BSc) in Canine Behaviour & Training in 2010 - one of the first ten people in the country to do so. As well as academic studies, Claire regularly attends various seminars and practical handling courses on matters from the latest science based research into puppy development and behavioural issues through to proprioceptive exercise and sports.

Claire is an assessed member of the
Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) and only offers training that is kind, fair and effective, and without the use of aversive techniques or equipment. She is an ABTC Registered Training Instructor and certificated as a COVID-19 Risk Aware Trainer.

Claire is a qualified KC competitive obedience and KC rally judge, a qualified
ScentWorkUK instructor and a qualified examiner for the KC Good Citizen Dog Scheme at all levels.

At Animal Magic, it is our intention that you and your dog build and maintain a great relationship based on fun, good manners and an understanding of how dogs really work.
