Kadarow is a dog training club in Bournemouth, Dorset. We run dog training courses in local church halls, including Puppy, Young Handler, Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, Advanced and Foundation Indoor Fun Agility, as well as one-to-one training. All of our classes are run as well-structured, specially designed courses.
Kadarow is run by Katie Rowlands, who has many years experience in the handling and training of dogs; she has been running dog training classes in Bournemouth since 2004. Katie has written extensive training manuals (one for each course), which fully complement and support the courses and are included in the course fees - these are handed out during week one of the courses.
The training methods used at Kadarow are positive, motivational and reward based. We not only focus on obedience training, with the objective of achieving a well behaved, obedient dog, we also put a lot of emphasis on socialisation, and fun! It is paramount that dogs enjoy their training and we do not advocate the use of any coercive methods. The classes are relaxed and friendly, which we feel is the very best environment for dogs to learn within.

Attending dog training classes can be very exciting, but also nerve-wracking (especially if you've never done it before) and Katie recognises this; she runs all the classes in a relaxed and friendly manner. Katie is not only very much a doggy person, she's also a people person and that quality is vital, when it comes to running dog training classes. She is there to help train you to train your own dog. In the training classes, Katie's approach is one of positive encouragement and giving you, the owners, the confidence and the knowledge to train your own dogs. Many people in the past have commented on how much they've enjoyed Katie's classes and the fact that she really gets to know the dogs and people and gives it the "personal touch". Katie recognises that every dog and person is different and that different techniques and approaches are required with different dogs and people.
All of the methods used are positive, motivational and reward-based. Coercive and negative methods are an absolute no-no and Kadarow does not advocate the use of check/choke chains, prong collars, electric collars, rattle tins, water sprays, or anything which could be harmful or cause distress to a dog. Like most dog trainers today, everyone at Kadarow simply knows that dogs who enjoy their training, and have fun along the way, not only pick everything up more quickly, they are also much happier in themselves. Just like us, when dogs enjoy their "working conditions" and are paid "good wages" they are much happier and much more settled and productive. Aside from that, dogs have a basic right to be treated well and not be forced to do anything that distresses them.
