Welcome to Taking the Lead
Taking the Lead is a website and service dedicated to helping you understand and deal with dog behaviour and training problems. Taking the Lead believes in positive training, and will never advocate the use of harsh training methods that may physically or emotionally harm your four-legged-friend.
Taking the Lead runs regular dog training classes in Shoreham-by-Sea & Worthing and also offers private training and behavioural counselling sessions. See our training and behavioural services section for more details.
We also offer a number of free-to-read articles and advice on many aspects of dog behaviour, dog training, dog health, and dog communication. You can find these articles in our advice and information section. See also our recommended books for more reading.
Pay your respects to the memories of deceased pets in our remembrance section.
COMING SOON: you can purchase useful booklets, leaflets, leads, toys, and tools in our shop. Free postage & packing on every order!
