Rockwood Dog Training School Caerphilly 

 The 10 week courses costs £160.00 per dog including £40.00 non refundable registration fee. The groups are limited to 24 per group. This allows more than enough room for social distancing. 


Please note:  Group classes are not suitable for aggression/fear reactive aggression behaviour to man or dog. These problems need to be sorted out by booking a private lesson with Ellen Ball. Anyone booking an aggressive dog onto a group class will be turned away and not refunded. The safety of our clients and their dogs is paramount.

Private consultations at home or at the center are also available. Dog aggression, separation anxiety and destructive dogs are just a few of the  psychological and behavior problems that we deal with. 

Agility is introduced in the Intermediate classes. 


Rockwood Dog Training is based in Caerphilly, South Wales. The training center is located at the base of a beautiful mountain valley and although set in lush welsh countryside is just minutes from the center of Cardiff. It has good access off Blackbrook Road with a car parking area. The training takes place indoors with a purpose built three span polly tunnel with astro turf floor which provides a large and ample area protected from the weather. At one end we have a tiered viewing gallery, which seats seventy people. It is used for talks, seminars and for members of the family to watch their dog working during class.

At the other end we have two private consultation rooms and a photo room which is used for the registration of dogs for filming. We also have a one acre fenced off area for outdoor training during the summer months.''

At Rockwood Dog Training we pride ourselves with the style of training that we provide. Be under no illusion there is no quick fix solution, it takes hard work, motivation and lots of patients to achieve a well trained dog. With the advent of many TV programmes covering dog training it can easily appear that behaviour problems can be solved overnight.

Much of the hard work and time that has to be put in has been edited out. Our Instructors are here to train you how to train your dog. As you are learning a new skill, just like with any other skill, it will take time. Once your handler skills have been developed, only then will you start to see the benefit of your instruction.    More Information
