logoruff-squareHaving successfully provided quality, positive dog training to the lovely people of Bath, over the last 2 years, we are now expanding. As well as continuing to run our very successful puppy and dog training classes here in Bath, we are now offering Workshops and Courses in Chipping Sodbury, Bristol and expanding the area we cover for private dog training. For times of change, comes a new name – Ruff Hounds!

While we’re still very much a part of the Clever Dog Company team and will continue to teach their elite training classes, we now have even more to offer! We look forward to sharing our new classes and workshops with you soon! Happy training!



Dog Bite Prevention Week

Events Safety Around Dogs

It’s currently National Dog Bite Prevention Week in the USA, focusing on educating people about preventing dog bites. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), “with an estimated population of 70 million dogs living in U.S. households, millions of people, most of them children, are bitten by dogs every year. The majority of these bites, if not all, are preventable.”

Please check out the infographic below and resources on the AVMA site. Much of it is applicable to us in the UK where we are unfortunately hearing of so many more dog bites and attacks recently – most of which could be prevented.
