Laura McHugh, our in-house Training Manager, is here to help with all your dog training needs!

At Central Bark we believe training is as essential to your dog’s wellbeing as having a loving home.  It strengthens your bond and encourages you to get to know each other better.

Our trainer Laura believes that dog training should be fun for both the dog and human. It is about building a relationship with your dog and working together to achieve goals and overcome any struggles. Laura prides herself on continuing to learn what she can and developing new techniques to help both dogs and their guardians.

Laura’s role at Central Bark includes running various training classes and workshops for you and your dog to attend, plus help you with more specific training struggles through 1 on 1 sessions.

Laura is also on site passing on her knowledge to all the Central Bark Team and ensuring they are up to date with the most recent scientific based training techniques available. This allows Central Bark to adapt to an individual dog’s needs and requirements to ensure they are being provided the best care while they are with us.

We have dog training options for dogs of all ages and skills at Central Bark:
