Welcome to Schooling 4 Dogs & Humans. We are a training and behaviour company with venues across Sussex and we are here to help you and your dogs build strong and successful relationships so you can always feel confident and competent when you are out together.
We are a close knit team of trainers and behaviourist that previously worked together at another training centre, we worked so well together that we decided to form Schooling 4 Dogs & Humans.
We offer group classes, behaviour consultations, 121 training (tailored to your needs) and fun workshops for every age group right from when you first pick up your puppy through to adulthood. Did you know the old saying 'You can’t teach an old dog new tricks' is complete rubbish! We run all sorts of fun courses to keep your dog’s brain stimulated and it is really never too late to learn. We have venues, trainers and behaviourists across Brighton, Hove, Crawley and Worthing and our qualified team can also come to your home or join you on a walk.
Everyone in our team is qualified and we are competent in several different specialisms and accreditations (you can see more at Meet our Team). We use the latest up-to-date, scientific and fun approaches to provide you and your dog the best experience of training and behaviour. Lastly, we only use reward based methods where we reinforce your dog’s good behavior and choices because this has been shown to help develop happy and confident dogs.

Dogs: Eric and Nelly Human: Mandy
"I had rescued two 16 week old puppies, they were very fearful and I felt I was totally out of my depth and in all honesty I had no idea where to begin with them, Schooling for Dogs came to my rescue. Andrew explained so much to me, about dog behaviour and it all started making sense. I am the kind of person that wants to do the best for my dog’s, Schooling for Dogs has helped me to achieve my goal, a superb trainer, who has such a vast knowledge of dogs and their behaviour, fun lessons all fuelled with passion and commitment.
Contacting Schooling for Dogs was the best thing I could have done, to look at my two pooches now it is amazing to see how much we have achieved in just a few months."
Dog: Archie, Terrier Human: Rebecca
I first met Debbie about 3 years ago when she came to help me with my reactive terrier, Archie. She gave me such a lot of help and tools/guidance so I could help and support Archie and overtime he has become so much more relaxed. After this success I decided to use Debbie and her team when I got a new puppy, completing their socialisation and follow-on courses, and since then I have also done a recall workshop and a keep calm workshop. Every course I have done has really helped me communicate better with my dogs and this has strengthened the bond I have with them. I wouldn't hesitate to use Debbie and her team again they are all so friendly and helpful, and they help you get the results you want!
Dog: Henry, Poochon Human: Nicola
Henry first started attending classes at 12 weeks old. He was my first ever dog so it was really important for me to find a training school that was suitable for both of us. Before bringing him to his forever home I contacted S4D and found Debbie extremely helpful and she gave me some excellent advice.
We loved attending puppy classes. Who wouldn't? All those wonderful pups! We both learned so much and the style of training for both dogs and owners was simple to follow and extremely positive. I never felt that I was doing anything wrong and Henry developed so well throughout the course. The trainers were always willing to help with any advice or queries.
Dog: Stanley, Black Labrador Human: David
I have had the pleasure of taking my male Labrador through two classroom courses and an advanced 121 course with Leigh. From the basic sit at 12 weeks all the way through to emergency stops, heel work and formal retrieves, Leigh has been there every step of the way. I now have a very calm 9-month old that is unbelievably well behaved and eager to continue training. I cannot recommend Leigh’s training skills enough.
Dog: Digger Human: Sheila
Just wanted to thank you and say how grateful I am for all the help Debbie gave me when I first had Digger.
I followed her instructions and have become more confident in myself with handling him. He has a routine, which he knows, and walking is now a pleasure for us both.
Having him has changed my life and he is certainly a much happier dog.
Thank you so much
Dog: Louis, Doberman Human: Clare
Debbie helped with some loose lead walking training with my 38kg Doberman, Louis, who was pulling on the lead. Debbie ensured that we used force free methods and recommended a nice comfy harness for Louis. Debbie showed me how to positively reinforce Louis when he didn't pull, so that he understood that he needed to walk nicely. Debbie makes learning fun and clearly loves helping people and their dogs to succeed, through years of experience and education.
Dog: Marley, Yellow Labrador Human: Demi
Very nice people and Marley is so happy to meet other dogs
Dog: Harvey, Cocker Spaniel Human: Davina
As a new dog owner, it was essential to receive the right training for my cocker spaniel puppy. Andrew Anderson provided the best training & advice, through our 121 sessions. I am happy to say that he enabled Harvey & myself to develop a strong & confident relationship.
Dog: Romy Human: Neal
I have been working with Annika for the past 6 months with my Doberman puppy. I have had a number of difficulties with my puppy, which Annika has been instrumental in helping me resolve. She is caring and calm with my puppy but always recognises the issues I am having and has a strategy to overcome them. I recommend her to anyone that needs help with their puppy or dog.
