Empowering dog owners since 2007

About us

BTPDS in its current format has been in existence since 2007; though now of course much larger and more comprehensive in what it can offer. 

We have expanded from two members to eight instructors and an Administrator.

Only by providing what owners need would it be possible to continue for so many years and to also expand.  BTPDS now offers on average 10 hours of classes each week of various sorts, in addition to all but one Sunday each month being dedicated to Special Dog Sessions.  

BTPDS also is dedicated to dog welfare through the selling of premium food products and equipment.  BTPDS is a distributor for Eden Holistic Pet Foods,  Pet Remedy, Dog Games Perfect Fit Harnesses and also Mekuti Harnesses
