Welcome To Puppydogtails Dog Training Academy

PDTA – Kent

PDTA – Kent are a canine specialist and dog trainer/behaviourists based in Medway, Kent where our training mantra is 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 handlers wants, needs and abilities even in a group setting. Thus allowing us to tailor a training plan that’s individual to you and your dog and always fun, fluid, flexible, friendly and force-free.
