Dog training, behaviour and walking in Devon

Canis Concept was founded in 2020 focusing on using modern scientifically proven methods of training. By using positive reinforcement this helps to strengthen the bond between you and your dog and make training more enjoyable whilst still getting results you desire. These methods will help you to develop a confident and responsive canine.

As well as our training we also offer walks in the heart of Devon. You can rest assured that your dog is in safe hands with a qualified trainer so that your dog is not only exercised but mentally enriched and happy too.



Dogs love to learn and this is something that should happen throughout their life.

Many people believe that training is something to do when your dog is a puppy. That once your pup knows the basic commands you are set for life. In reality dog training is an ongoing journey rather than a destination you need to reach.

Training isn't simply teaching basic commands like 'Sit' and 'Stay' (although these are very helpful!). It is also about providing enrichment for your dog, understanding their body language and how they process new scenarios as well as helping your dog work through arousal. In addition to this, learning through games can make training more fun for handler and dog.

This is why our training is not only focused on essential commands but is a mix of games and enrichment too.


"Each behaviour is not simply a meaningless action, instead it has a reason and purpose. Therefore we need to look at this from a holistic perspective to help us identify the basis of each behaviour. Once you have this missing puzzle piece you can truly begin to understand why your dog acts the way it does. This extra understanding will be reflected in your training making this more effective too."
