Dog Training Philosophy

Founded by Steve MANN, The Institute of Modern Dog Training has trainers working across the UK and internationally, who offer a professional service to dog owners.

All members of the IMDT adhere to a code of conduct so that you can be confident only modern, reward-based methods will be recommended. Click here for details. Each member has passed a rigorous practical and theoretical assessment, accredited by The Open College Network, and undertake continuous professional development to stay up-to-date.

IMDT trainers work with you and your dog to improve communication and help you to achieve their potential. If you are looking for either a training class for your puppy, adult dog, activities to share with your pet or seeking expert advice on behavioural issues, you can be confident in choosing a trainer using a kind and ethical approach.
