Training Resources

Here at Thornfield we are big fans of the following trainers and resources...

Online learning

Susan Garrett (Say Yes Dog Training)

We are proud students and alumni of Susan Garrett's online courses...RecallersPuppy Peaks, H360 and Agility Nation. Susan Garrett's Blog is also a great read. We always recommend Recallers to our puppy buyers - one of the best investments you'll ever make in your dog and in your skills as a trainer, whether you want to compete in dog sports or just have an awesome family pet. Sally is also an instructor in the online Recallers class - it's not a paid role but it's about being a trusted member of the community.
