About


At Dog Hollow, we aim to teach your dog everything they need to live a happy and relaxed life in the family home and in the parks of London and surrounding area. Dog Hollow was established as a behaviour and training consultancy in Central London over 20 years ago and has a reputation for excellence in and around the capital.

We will help you understand your dog's behaviour and teach you the methods to best train your dog, using positive, reward-based techniques. Our training programs are designed to be not only effective but also fun for both you and your dog.
