Our Services

Dog training & behaviour

From how best to welcome your new puppy, to challenges with loose-lead or recall, we have a training package to support your dog to thrive in your family.

Reactivity, resource guarding and separation distress are just some of the areas that I can help you with through science-based understanding of dog psychology and training that focuses on supporting your dog to overcome the root cause of the problem.

We offer a variety of weekly training classes and workshops including Puppy Classes, Beginner Classes, and Rally Dog Sport workshops - fun for all the family!

Dog walking

Group walks that allow your dog to exercise, explore and play with friends.

Your dog may prefer a lone walk, perhaps because they are older, recovering from an injury, or nervous of other dogs.

Puppies need extra care and socialisation to ensure they grow up happy and healthy.

Highly recommend Forests & Fetch service; our very lively Vizsla loves his walks with Anna - he is always pleased to see her, and we find him happily snuggled up in his bed after a stimulating walk with her. It is reassuring to know he is in such good hands when we are not able to give him exercise and company for work or other reasons. Totally recommend Forests & Fetch to take care of your 4-legged family member. Thanks Anna!​

Acres of forests and fields to play

If you are working, can’t walk your dog for whatever reason, or just think they would enjoy coming out with us for an extra adventure, then we are here to ensure that your dog’s day is filled with joy.​

Something to work on?
