Welcome to The Bath Canine Academy!


Whether a puppy or an older rescue dog, as dog lovers we all want the best for our beloved pet.



Sometimes it can be confusing and difficult trying to understand what they are thinking and what they need. A simple dog walk can become a battlefield and this is stressful for both you and your dog. Bath Canine Academy is here to support you in understanding your dog and creating a long-lasting relationship with your companion that provides many years of fun and enjoyment for you both.


This is the Pavilion in Farmborough. The venue offers us the ability to train our dogs on a nice grass area, then for the socialisation element of the training we have a completely confined area to let the dogs play in.

Founder of Bath Canine Academy

Originally a junior member of the RSPCA and an avid dog lover, I realised through owning my own dogs how different they all are. The only thing they have in common is the need to be loved and understood. I have studied at The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) as the methods of training used are completely force free. At Bath Canine Academy we use positive reinforcement in all of our training to ensure a safe, friendly and trusting work environment.


I look forward to hearing from you and starting the journey of learning and discovery with your dog.





New puppy classes taking place in Freshford Memorial Hall on a Monday evening. All classes are fun and interactive with lots of ideas for you to take home and practice. These courses are 6 weeks long and the cost is £80 for the whole course. For more information please get in touch. I look forward to helping you get started on your journey to a happy and fulfilled puppy.

Bessie is a dear little Patterdale/Lakeland terrier, a rescue dog from Wales. She is very good with people, including children, but is unpredictable with other dogs. I contacted Emily, at Bath Canine Academy, about 8 weeks ago and she arranged a couple of 1-2-1 sessions, so that she could assess the problems. Emily considered Bessie suitable to join the Friday morning class, held on Farmborough Recreation Ground and I am very pleased with the progress that Bessie (and I) have made. The classes are useful but also good fun. As well as obedience-training we do a bit of agility-work. Bessie has now made friends with the dogs in the class and we are working on tactics to distract her from the other dogs, who are running free at the far end of the Rec! Soon after I had adopted Bessie, I began to think that I had made a mistake. Bessie still has some issues, but now, I get up each morning and think how lucky I am!!
