Who are we?
We are a small team of instructors who have owned dogs for many years.
Steve Woods has run Spring Park Dog Training School since 2009, but has been an instructor for 30 years.
Carole, Elaine and Xana have joined Steve in the past few years to give you a varied training experience, combining joint and one-to-one training in every lesson.
What else do we do?
We support Guide Dogs For The Blind:
- we sell treats for training and the money goes to GDBA
- for every sheet of paper that we print for the school, we donate 10p to GDBA
