What we do at Daybreak Dogs

Puppy Training

(Dogs under 6 months old)

My 12 week old puppy is chewing everything – help!

Don’t panic we have some great suggestions to help you cope.

New Owners & Personal Instruction

We’ve never had a dog before and have just brought one home from the local rescue centre

Welcome to the wonderful world of dog ownership! Get in touch with the team about a 1-2-1 appointment so we can best guide you as to which dog training course will be most suitable for you and your new family member.

Adolescence Training

(Between 4 – 12 months old)

Our adorable bundle of puppy fluff has grown into a boisterous young adult and won’t do as it’s told!

Adolescence is a difficult time, but don’t worry, sign up for our next Youngsters dog training course and we’ll help you through it!

Agility & Competition Training

I’ve been competing at agility competitions with my dog, but we keep getting faulted on our contacts

When you have a specific agility problem, it’s usually best to book some half hour 1-2-1 sessions to work through a training solution. Email us for more information on the team’s 1-2-1 availability.

Our classes are located in Clevedon, Nailsea, Kingston Seymour and Yatton

Enjoyable for both you AND your dog

One-to-one or group dog training

Daybreak Dogs is based in North Somerset and offers training classes from puppies through to adult dogs and we specialise in teaching dog agility.

We use positive reinforcement in the form of treats, toys and activities to reward our dogs in their lessons and everyday lives. Click here to see a list of our available classes.

If you’re struggling with a training issue that requires 1-2-1 help and advice, we offer private training at your home or at our venues. 

You’ll recognise a dog trained at Daybreak from their waggy tail, bright eyes and pricked ears – they are taught that learning is FUN!

You’ll recognise an owner trained at Daybreak by the way they interact with their dog in a happy and encouraging way – we teach handlers that training is something which is happening 24/7 and that learning is something that should be enjoyable for both them the teacher AND their dog the student.

Our classes are located in Clevedon, Nailsea, Kingston Seymour and Yatton.

“I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to Gemma and the team for the great course work that has tonight awarded dog Jessie a silver award. I’m her proud mum tonight!! Jessie and I are now much more confident in every day activities and from where she started as a 6 month unsocialised nervous dog when I got her, she has now built her confidence and her trust in me making walkies so much more fun.”

Who We Can Help
Dog training looks simple – but it isn’t easy. As someone who’s been embarrassed and despondent because of her dog’s behaviour in the past, I understand your struggles! There are no judgements passed here!

Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you train?
We have various training venues spread across Kingston Seymour, Clevedon, Nailsea & Yatton.
How much does training cost?
Prices for courses are advertised alongside each course in our online booking system.
What days and times do you train?
Our puppy and dog training classes are split across three venues and classes are held on Monday – Thursday evenings, with some weekday daytime classes – please feel free to get in touch for more information.

The majority of our agility classes are held outdoors and during the summer we offer classes throughout the week both during the daytime and the early evenings. When the nights draw in during the winter we switch our weekday evening classes to the weekend, although daytime classes remain as they are.

Why do you have to book a block of lessons rather than pay as you turn up?
By paying for a block we can more accurately work out how many dogs we will have in each training class, and our trainers can plan accordingly.
