Dog Training Holidays

Dog Training at 4 Star Farm Holiday Cottages, Looe, Cornwall

Dog Training Holidays – In Cornwall


Stay with us in for a week in Cornwall and get three hours of free dog training for up to two dogs  – allowing you to have fun with your dog, while teaching them new skills and improving their obedience. The training is open to all breeds of dogs – and all abilities (but is only available on certain dates – see below).

The training sessions will include tricks,  general obedience, social manners such as greeting people without jumping up, walking together off the lead, and general recall, covering all levels from beginner to advanced.

The training will be taken by  Sam who is a full time qualified dog trainer. Sam trains dogs in a way where they WANT to learn, thus providing a much more enjoyable reward based experience for both you and your pet. Sam uses the most up to date and well established training methods that are tried and tested to be very effective, this is reinforced with toys, treats and bags of praise.

No longer do you have to be embarrassed to take your dog out in public, or be fearful of seeing other dogs walking in the park.

The training will consist of two 90 minute sessions on the Sunday and will take place in our 23metre x 50m indoor training arena - which is just 100 yards from the cottages.

During the other days, guests are welcome to use the training facilities on their own to practice the techniques, or can of course enjoy the many nearby walks (including the coastal path) and visit the many local attractions (with Polperro, Looe, Fowey and the Eden Project all less than 20 minutes away – and you can now take dogs into The Eden Project).

The farm is less than 2 miles from the coast and coastal path (which is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty in this stretch between Looe and St Austell ). The local village (Pelynt) is less than a mile away down quiet lanes and The Jubilee Inn in the village offers excellent food and welcomes dogs.

The training would normally cost £80 per booking but is free for guests who stay with us for a full week in one of our four dog friendly cottages (Mealhouse, Waggoners, Rosebud and The old Farmhouse).

“The training was absolutely brilliant – if you get the chance do go – both you and your dog/s will have a great time! Fantastic facility and excellent trainer.
