Living the Dream?

What did you dream of when you first got your dog?  Peaceful walks? A calm, confident and happy canine friend? 

Want to make this your reality?

At Arun Dog Training, we can show you how to set your dog up for success and turn your dog struggles into strengths

with our strategies and 3-minute training games. And by the way, that does not  mean your dog has to love playing with toys.


So, is the training just a bit of fun, without results? Absolutely not! It’s actually based on scientific research that shows your pet will learn more effectively if the training is fun.

We use kind methods only (positive, rewards based training) that will boost your relationship with your dog.


Dogs of any breed, age and experience can benefit from our training.




About Me

I’m Heather Sanderson IMDT,  Founder and Trainer of Arun Dog Training. My family and I share our lives with Bella, a re-homed Irish setter x Border Collie.


I have been to several different training classes with Bella, with some success and some rather embarrassing moments too. Once, early on in our training journey at an obedience class, Bella jumped onto a windowsill to steal the teacher’s bag of liver sausage!


Sharing our lives with Bella has presented lots of challenges – but this is how I discovered my passion for dog training.


The best progress we have made in our training journey so far has been made since I discovered games-based training.  In 2017 I decided I wanted to share this with other people and began my course to become a Pro Dog Trainer with worldwide training company, Absolute Dogs. 


I have since broadened my knowledge with other training providers and have passed my assessment to become a full member of  IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers).


I've been awarded 'Approved Dog Trainer' status by the Dog Training College.

Frequently Asked Questions


How do I pay?

You can pay by card, bank transfer or cheque. 

How old does my puppy need to be to train?

Home is  a great place for your puppy to learn the behaviours you DO like, so you can prevent those doggy behaviours you will want to avoid such as separation anxiety, jumping up and excessive mouthing and biting.  Home 121s are great for puppy training from any age. You can start your training before your puppy is fully immunised and even before you bring puppy home so that you have the knowledge and confidence to get off to a great start from day one (and night one!)

 We are so very pleased at the huge difference in our girl. Every game has such a high training function but they are games and that is what makes this so good and such fun,I cannot praise Heather or Arun Dog Training enough ...Thank You


Arun dog training was very helpful for me with my cocker spaniel puppy. I fully recommend Heather and the games she has taught us have helped so much 



Thank you so much Heather for your help with Charlie my Goldendoodle puppy ... you could always be reached for help by email or phone and your information and videos have been invaluable. The games have really helped and they are fun to do.
I fully recommend Heather and Arun Dog Training.


I have got a rescue dog named Dillon. After 3 months of having him, I made the decision to help him. He was extremely anxious, also nervous of the outside world, even the garden. Then we found the Amazing Heather, do not hesitate using this Lady, we would not be where we are now, without her. Dillon is now very happy in the garden, car, walks, and absolutely still loves his training games .... you also get lots of support from her... do not hesitate you will not be disappointed. Thank you Heather for helping us with our Dillon.
