Joyful Trained Dog in Cheltenham

Dogs speak... when we know how to listen

Dog Behaviour & Puppy Training

Cheltenham & Charlton Kings

Welcome to Joyful Dogs! 

We help people across Cheltenham with dog training, puppy training and dog behaviour problems in a kind, effective and force-free way. 

Professional dog training: It’s a Joyful thing!

Does your dog's behaviour make you blush?    Maybe your dog has 'selective hearing' or jumps up at everyone he meets?  We'll help you turn those blushes into smiles. Showing you how to train your dog to 'choose' the right behaviour choices in any situation!

Having a new pup is wonderful, but it can be overwhelming too!   Puppies chew, jump, nip and get in to everything!   However, I can help you with puppy training - learning in a fun but effective way - so you can really enjoy  your pup!

We will train your dog for you… you don’t need to be there. You can get on with your day or enjoy a well-deserved break while we help your dog with skills such as loose lead walking, recall & reactivity.


I genuinely can't recommend Joyful Dogs enough! Since getting our first puppy, Helen has been incredibly helpful, caring and supportive both during the sessions and generally by being available to offer help and advice. We have had two 1:1 sessions so far and they have been brilliant. Helen listens to your specific needs and is incredibly knowledgeable. We also found that by being in our own home meant we could really work on the specific things we need help with and build confidence. We have definitely seen an improvement in our lovely pup's behaviour (and feel much happier/relaxed!) We can't thank Helen and Joyful Dogs enough and are looking forward to our walking session soon!
