A puppy training school has moved from Weare to Worle and has forged new links with a pet shop.

Dog behaviourist Alison Garforth has been training dogs for 
14 years and was running her puppy pre-school in Weare.

She has relocated her business to Worle, where she has joined up with Petmania in Coker Road.

Part of the warehouse has been converted into a training room, where dogs and owners can learn about co-ordination, balance and spatial awareness.

There are also dog yoga sessions, where animals can be taught to relax.

Alison said: “This was a fantastic opportunity.

“People can go to the shop and get their food and things, and then come to do some training.”

Alison’s bichon frise dog Jacabee is a big part of her training programme.

She said: “He is my little training assistant and has helped lots of dogs and puppies in classes.”
