Welcome to Armchair Dogs. Please have a look round our site at what we do. If you would like to contact us, you can find all the details on our contact page. Thank you and happy browsing.

Armchair Dogs was founded in early 1994 with the aim of providing modern, kind and effective training for pet dog owners. The business is run by us, Kevin & Jess, and we have a team of experienced assistants who support us in class. We take a different approach to dog training using methods that work with all shapes and sizes of dogs.

We may not suit all owners, but if you believe that dog training should be non-aggressive, force-free and low stress (for dog and owner), then we are the trainers for you.

We run puppy, level 2 and level 3 courses. Kevin is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), an organization founded by John Fisher and others, to ensure that dog owners are able to access training that is fair, kind and effective for themselves and their dog. All members (and their assistants) have to adhere to a strict code of conduct to ensure that dogs and owners get the best advice and help.

Kevin is also a qualified behavioural trainer (Post Graduate Diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour Counselling, University of Southampton) able to help with problems and dogs not suited to a class environment, and to give private training.

We believe in filling dog bowls with healthy goodness and the joy of being happy.

In March 2015 we went to Crufts with the mission of finding another food to offer our customers.

Our criteria were that it had to be grain free, high quality meat, good value for money and if possible, British. And so began our relationship with Eden Holistic Pet Foods.

Eden is an independent family owned company based in the rural countryside of Staffordshire. Formed in 2011 their aim is to produce foods that support the health and vitality of animals.
