Welcome to Pure Dog Adventure Training- Where all the Good Dogs Go

Founded by Laura Hebberd in 2018, we started with a simple vision: to create a space where dogs of all breeds, sizes, and backgrounds could thrive. Based in Darlington, we’ve grown from a passionate dream into a thriving community, dedicated to bringing out the best in your canine companion.

Inclusivity is at the heart of everything we do. Pure Dog Adventure Training is a place where all dogs are welcome, and every owner is supported and championed. We believe that every dog deserves a chance to learn and grow in a nurturing environment.

What Makes Us So Special?

At Pure Dog Adventure Training, we believe in a holistic approach to dog training. Our services include:

Scent Detection: Our sessions give your dog the opportunity to use their amazing, sniffing ability to search for a specific scent.

Mantrailing: Encourage your dog to use their fantastic noses to search for a ‘missing’ person in exciting, real-world scenarios.

Sports Fusion Class: A unique blend of hoopers, gun dog training, obedience and body awareness skills that keeps both mind and body active.

Foundation Class: Our fun, progressive class teaches all the basics. Suitable for all dogs and puppies, we teach loose lead walking, settling, sits, stays and recall and so many other useful skills that form the core skills we will develop in our Sports Fusion Classes.

But we’re more than our classes. We’re about creating experiences that strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Whether it’s through our engaging group sessions or personalised one-on-one training, we’re here to support your journey toward a happier, more fulfilled canine relationship.

Join Our Wonderful Community, 

At Pure Dog Adventure Training, we’re more than a training centre; we are a community united by the love of dogs. We have the loveliest people and the goodest of dogs who will be your greatest cheerleaders. Our supportive community is here to make you and your dog feel comfortable, seen and valued.
