Read The South Shields Dog Trainer Reviews!
We Have HUNDREDS of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
When I realised I had an issue with my lurcher Charlie with him being reactive towards other dogs my heart felt heavy and thought it would always be that way, but a friend recommended the South Shields dog trainers which was also backed up by a lurcher group and I can’t say I’ve been disappointed with the outcome. I met with Nathan for my first session with fear of what to expect and I was put at ease straight away and Charlie loved him, so did my other dog Archie who got to spend lots of time with Nathan also so both have benefited from the calm way he instructs you and makes it seem like you’re just chatting so not only putting the dogs at ease but me also. As my sessions have continued I’ve seen the confidence in Charlie grow, I rarely get a reaction from him when we pass another dog except for him looking to me to for being a good boy (and his treat) which has been so well deserved he’s so much more relaxed and his tail is now up most of the time we are out now and I couldn’t have done it without Nathan at the South Shields dog trainer they are my stars and I know they are there if I need help in the future.
Thank you so much 😊
Just had my final session with Nathan and would really recommend! My dog is reactive to other dogs but with Nathans help, I’ve really seen a huge difference and walking him has become fun again. Most importantly, I have been given my confidence back and for that, I’m grateful!
Highly recommended. Our little Cocker Spaniel, Cooper thrived in the class. Sarah and Gabrielle were amazing. So attentive. We enjoyed it as much as Cooper.

I found the session and having 1:1 time with Brenna and Nathan brilliant. Awaiting oscar having his sedation and X-rays today then will book in. Thankyou
Our Arthur loves his Monday night puppy training sessions at South Shields. He’s building in confidence and getting better every week.
Received my first 1-2-1 on Saturday felt very reassured by Sarah and hopefully to see the progress in my boy
Amazing service. Sarah and Jake are amazing and have really good insight and tips to help you with your pup. Thank you for all your tips and advice.
Excellent first session with Sarah. Sarah is so friendly, knowledgable and immediately puts you at ease. Our dog loved her too!
Sarah was great from the moment she saw Stanley. She knew her stuff and was very professional but friendly.
Stanley responded well to the directions she gave to us/him. We look forward to seeing a marked improvement by our second session with her.
Still working our way through Nala's 1 to 1 training but she's improved massively thanks to Sarah's help and recommendations! She's helped me with Nala soo much and we now have a brilliant relationship where my huge excited pup walks to heel and is learning to recall among other things! Honestly can't recommend her enough!
I think the training was fun for both the dogs and the handlers. Learning through playing is great. Both our pups have really developed since attending puppy training. Nathan has been really brilliant in what has been the most trying of circumstances. Helpful, sharing wisdom and experience really enhanced the training. Access to the online training has also helped so I would thoroughly recommend Nathan to anyone looking for dog training.
Good company that was highly recommended to us
Working with my very reactive dog
Fantastic training and advice always available to give advice
Great rapport with dogs and offers support to all dog owners that are experiencing difficulties with their dogs behaviours

Nathan has really helped with our Cockapoo Otto, we really like their approach to training combing fun games and dog psychology we find this approach works better and is more enjoyable for us all!
I've voted for them as they have an excellent record of success in training dogs and teaching owners the skills needed to maintain their dogs behaviour.
Professional, modern dog trainer who is friendly and patient with both owners and dogs.
I haven't personally used this service however I have friends who have and they honestly couldn't speak highly enough about them. From going above and beyond to provide the best service for each individual client they work with but also always remaining so professional at what they do.
A great and knowledgeable trainer.
I would recommend to anyone
The team are great and so knowledgeable! Credit to our town.
we've been working with Nathan with our dog Stella, she's a nightmare 'puller' on lead and sooo frustrated when she sees other dogs that she's not allowed to play with. Slow steps but Nathan's advice has been invaluable
Nathan is passionate about his work. He is extremely well qualified and always looking to develop his practice with science based activities. I enjoyed his courses.
They have worked wonders with my daughter's rescue dog. In just a couple of months her anxiety is almost under control.
They have given great advice on a matter of topics throughout lockdown, including delivering live stream videos with tips on training all for free! Very friendly and helpful
They helped us so much with our dog, we felt like we tried everything but now it’s like we have a different dog. We can’t thank them enough.
Excellent trainer, dog loves him. And we are getting results quickly.
Nathan transformed our reactive dog with his training classes and 1 to 1.

Had an assessment for our new adopted dog and was very friendly and helpful.Look at his Facebook page for tips as dog has a lot of problems,and he gives useful advice .
Exceptional dedication to continual learning and ethical training methods.
We take our puppy to training classes and he loves it, he has learnt so much in a fantastic environment.
His knowledge and expertise is simply outstanding and he’s always willing to help others
As a Dog Trainer l know his training methods through the same professional circles and l wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. He's well educated, ethical and committed, besides being well liked in our community.
Nathan is helping me work wonders with my reactive rescue.
We took the Perfect Puppy course with our whippet Merlin, and were really guided to build a strong bond and we both learnt some valuable tips and games to help us with our training! We had both trainers take us for classes and couldn’t fault them!
Nathan knows everything there is to know about dog behaviour and applies his knowledge in a practical and easy to understand way for dog and owner.
Most amazing place so trustworthy and reliable
Fantastic trainers, so friendly and great at what they do, they certainly are very educated in this line of work. During this pandemic, they have excelled in how they deliver their classes to make everyone feel safe and protected. Well done!
Extremely knowledgeable & effective trainer , with a great sense of humour too!
Nathan has worked wonders, not only giving me the confidence to control a reactive GSD, he’s helped instil a passion in me to up my training game, bring on obedience classes....
Very highly skilled and experienced
The guy just knows his stuff & is always learning to bring his clients the latest best training out there. He lovvvvves dogs & can help you with yours
Lovely guy. My dogs loved him from first meeting. Great tips and advice on how to work with siblings.
Nathan’s advice and support with our German wirehaired pointer cross has been invaluable! Always giving us tailor made plans to suit our family and lifestyle. Even giving us links to research based evidence which support the training methods he recommends. Can not recommend him enough!
We enrolled our 10 week old puppy on the puppy class, Nathan was amazing with her and gave us such good advise all kinds of topics. Thanks you!
Absolutely amazing turn around for my doberman, brilliant dog trainer who knows his dogs.
We have just started to work with them but can see improvements in my dog’s behaviour already!
Very professional yet really friendly trainer. Following the initial assessment of my dog a bespoke training programme was introduced and was constantly reviewed and assessed. Great improvements have been made with my dogs behaviour which i thought were not possible. I would definitely recommend Nathan, he has great knowledge of aspects of a dogs behaviour and how best to develop the dog in the best possible way. Friendly, knowledgeable and adaptable at all times.
He has worked with my reactive German Shepherd and has given me confidence to handle her more effectively.
Nathan's knowledge and passion for helping dogs and their owners is fantastic.
Amazing staff, reliable, knowledgeable, brilliant service!

Very informative, lots of free helpful advice and good services. Has demonstrated good results with lots of dogs.
I have been recommended The South Sheilds Dog Trainer to help with my puppy who has been effected with his training due to lockdown. I follow who they currently work with in facebook and all the doge seem to massively improve within such a short space of time so their talent clearly speaks for itself! I know I will benefit from their clear expertise with my dog as well.
Picking up pup shortly, looking for best local trainer to help us on our training journey and South Shields Dog Trainer is the best
It is local and really helpful
Nathan was great with Bella explaining why he was getting us to do each exercise and what the aim of each activity was. We saw a great difference in Bella after a few sessions with nathan
The are simply the best
They’re the best
Big friendly venue
I contacted Nathan today and he has made me feel that my dog and I are not a lost cause and it's never too late. After a very negative experience last year that knocked all my confidence I feel I can have a fulfilled relationship with my dog.
Such an amazing training group, helpful not only in person but with hints online that can help you with new pups like mine!
Great dog and human friendly. They are up for a challenge
Friendly, local and they get the job done
