A Richmond based dog training school is the latest recipient of a district council grant.
‘We Train Any Dog’ has been awarded £1000 to help set up the group’s new premises with signage and create a new website.
The dog training school and dog day care centre was set up in 2003 by instructor Heather Stevens. She specialises in dog aggression, behaviour problems, rescue dog rehabilitation and the use of training to resolve issues pets have – both mild and severe.
