Hello, it's nice to meet you!

We're Toby and Courtney, together we both run Forest Dog Academy Ltd. We've been working together since 2015 and both share a huge passion for training dogs and helping their owners! Here at Forest Dog Academy we aim to teach and show you the benefits of training your dog with positive reinforcement. 

We truly believe that the best training experience to be had is via positive reinforcement, as this creates a safe and pressure free environment for your dogs learning to thrive. This leads to fantastic engagement and really helps establish a strong and healthy bond between you and your dog.

Over the years we have continued to learn as much as possible about training methods and how to put them into fun, easy to understand and concise training sessions, whether in a group class or one on one consultations.  

"Hey I'm Toby, I've been a full time dog trainer since 2014, upon completing my apprenticeship in 2016, myself and Courtney have been running our own dog training business. In 2016 I also qualified as a full member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and since then, I have continued to develop my learning in the field of dog training in order to be up to date with the best training methods possible."

"Hi I'm Courtney, I've been a Dog Groomer and Trainer since 2015. I've always loved spending time with animals, so once I finished school I went to Sparsholt college to gain my Diploma in Animal Management, which was where I discovered dog grooming and training was a passion of mine. As well as working with dogs, I was also a cattery manager at a local cattery from 2013 until it closed at the end of 2021.
