Welcome to Puppydogtails Academy.

Puppy Dog Tails Academy are canine specialists and dog trainers based in Medway, Kent where we believe that working with your canine companions should be fun, fluid, flexible and friendly.

A family run business, our approach to dog training is different to the humdrum world of training where all dogs are trained to the same standard at the same time.

We take each dog individually and assess both their and their handler/s wants, needs and ability.

Thus allowing us to tailor a training plan that’s individual to you and your dog.
