Business overview

At The Working Puppy Company we help YOU to train YOUR puppy or dog. All breeds and ages of dog welcome, specialising in working breeds.

The Working Puppy Company is the premier Pet Dog Obedience and Gundog Training School in and around Inverurie, Aberdeenshire and the North East of Scotland. We hold around 10 group classes per week, catering for all breeds of dog, as well as 1:1 lessons with a team of 4 trainers who have a combined experience of over 90 years working, training and competing with working dogs.

Here at The Working Puppy Company our aim is to give you the tools to train your dog to become a well behaved, happy and obedient dog using gundog training methods. Owner and Head trainer Kirsten Rennie feels it is an important part of the process to ensure that the owners are as well trained as the dogs. We offer practical and informative lessons in a fun, safe and stimulating environment.

We believe in training your dog through positive communication, appropriately praising and reprimanding, and using body language and play so that you create a strong and rewarding bond with your puppy or dog. You should be the most interesting element in your dogs life, and the best way to create a bond with your puppy or dog is through stimulating training. Dogs don't see training as ’training’, they see it as fun time with their favourite human. The better you do it, and the more you do it, the more they enjoy it!

Fantastic - 100% Recommend

Just finished our first 1:1 with Lindsay. I can't recommend enough. Our 9 month old WCS pulls like a train and despite our best efforts he was not improving, and walking Alfie had become extremely stressful. Within 5 minutes Lindsay had him walking at her side, I could not believe it.
Lindsay shared so much of her knowledge and showed us what we should be doing. We left the hour feeling much more confident on how to train him correctly. Can't wait to go back in a few weeks for our next 1:1. Can't thank you enough

Brilliant training walks with professional trainers.

5
UPDATE! BRILLIANT! VERY PROFESSIONAL!
Following on from the puppy classes with Kirsten ( fantastic). We have just finished a 7 week block of training walks led by Lindsay. So pleased that I pushed myself to try the walks.
Lindsay was amazing; calm, professional, patient with every dog and owner. The walks are not a solid 1 hour walking. We stop and put many things into practice, eg the slip lead, whistle, wait/stay, walking to heal on and off lead, dogs off lead interacting with each other. We, as a group, gained many tips and improved. Easy to pick up when learning there on the spot in person.
The walks took us to different venues each time and we met like minded people. I aim to consolidate everything learnt so far, then book either a one-one training walk or another block of group walking. So happy to have found The Working Puppy Company.
Great value for money! Will be back! Huge thanks! And did I mention Sunny absolutely LOVED going to class.

Training Walks

5
I have just completed one of the seven week training walks with Lindsay.
On the first walk Lindsay said that one of her aims would be to have all the dogs off lead and running along together. To be honest, I was very apprehensive as my lab can be reactive on occasions.
By the 5th week, we were almost at that stage and by the 7th week, totally there.
I now have so much more confidence in handling my lab.
The walks are very controlled and there are lots of hints and tips. It has again enforced the basics to me …. recall, recall, recall. My lab is 5 years old and it is never too late to come back for a bit of refresher training.

I thoroughly enjoyed the walks. Met like minded people who all have different little issues with their dogs.

Lindsay is very knowledgeable and it didn’t take her long to get a handle on all the dogs.

I now just have to keep up the good work.

Thank you.

Great 1st lesson

5
Took our 11 week old Cocker Spaniel puppy, Axel, for his first 1:1 training lesson this week. Kirsten was a wealth of knowledge and we learnt so much in just one hour. Can’t wait to start group lessons soon. Kirsten has been great at responding to my emails/questions.
