Dog trainingfor the real world

Enjoy all life’s adventures with a dog who makes you proud, wherever you go

WelcomeThis is dog training, but not as you know it!

At East Coast Dog Training, we make dog training simple, effective and fun for both ends of the lead. Get your boots on and get ready to train in a variety of environments because we’re going to teach your dog to behave beautifully everywhere.

Our training class venues offer us real-life training with real-life distractions. You’ll encounter all the things you do on your walks – other dogs, people, other animals, all weather conditions and all terrains. So your dog can master listening to you, no matter what’s going on around them.

Whether you have a problem with your dog or a new puppy who needs puppy training classes, it’s going to be a breeze with a supportive, positive dog trainer at your side!

It’ll also be a bit of a laugh – because who wants to keep doing something that isn’t fun?!

We have just completed our second course of classes with our teenage flattie Polly. Becky has been brilliant as a trainer. She is so knowledgeable about dogs behaviour and their interpretation of our behaviour which has been fascinating , and which make so much sense once you think about it. She is endlessly patient with the dogs' humans and explains things in such a clear way... no question is ever too silly. And she is great fun and keeps the classes very relaxed though still very focused. The on-line videos and tips are really helpful for practising training and indeed the Zoom sessions at the beginning are a great introduction. I would certainly highly recommend her and look forward to seeing her I am sure we will need to at some stage!

Brilliant recall course, full of practical info to do with your dog. I hadn't done anything since my dog was a puppy so this course was fab to help with new ideas - games with food/toys and using a long line. Becky is fab & very supportive. It was great to get the emails too that detailed everything we did. I'd highly recommend this course. Ava (my dog) got a lovely goody bag at the end too - she loved it & that was a nice surprise. Thank you Becky!

Fantastic advice and support from Becky. She has so much knowledge and experience. I felt terrible having relaxed too much with Oly and needed to go back for advice. I only got support - never any blame. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I cannot rate Becky highly enough. Quite simply, the dogs and dog owners of East Lothian are blessed to have such a knowledgeable, caring and professional dog trainer in the area. Becky has been involved with dogs for such a long time and from the first moment of meeting her it was absolutely clear that they are her passion. Becky has seen methods of training come and go and as such, is able to articulate the ‘why’ behind each step in her learning, which really helps you to understand your dog. Behind the scenes, she is organised and provided a highly professional service. Her communications are always timely and she is good to her word that she will get back to you with any questions. It is really reassuring to have that support, whether it is about training or food or neutering. The zoom sessions are brilliant - they allowed us to focus on the learning without any distractions. The quality of the content is high and Becky provided ‘cheat sheets’ for after the lesson as well as access to the video to replay if needed. This really helps keep momentum up. We’ve enjoyed meeting Becky and have signed up for various different sessions. She is a kind, positive and patient trainer with a cracking sense of humour. 10/10 recommend 🙌🏻

Becky is definitely a 5 star trainer. There's not a single thing she doesn't know about dogs.

I was recommended by many people to go Becky and her training. She has a great reputation in the area and I now know why. The training (first time dog owner) is great, fun and has a huge impact on my puppy. We have had such a good experience we are signing up for more of her classes as the puppy grows. She was even kind enough to help me when I sent some (slightly panicked) messages at random times of day looking for advice and help. She uses all sorts of media to help. Zoom meetings, social media chats and videos, an app and of course fun real life sessions. Highly recommend. What a gem she is.
