Professional Dog Training in Peterborough and surrounding areas.

You may have bought training books and spent a fortune on various recommended dog training equipment – all of it promised to fix the problem - but this may not always fix the issue as every dog is an individual. Whether it’s aggression to people or other dogs, my respected training system offers a gentle and effective way to stop your dog’s unwanted behaviour.

I offer training on a 1-2-1 basis with owners and dogs of all ages and stages. My service is tailor made to fit your requirements.

I have been training and working with dogs on a daily basis since 2013. I currently work for a leading rescue centre on the intake and assessment team working with complex behaviours. I have worked with hundreds of different dogs of all shapes and sizes helping to identify and work with any training needs that they require. I communicate with potential owners to help them understand their dog’s needs and training, which is something I am immensely passionate about.

I follow current scientific research and training methods that are up to date by continually being reassessed and attending as many seminars as possible with the world’s best leading trainers and behaviourists.

This has lead me to being fully qualified with the IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Training).

The IMDT follows the UK Dog Behaviour and Training Charter which provides assurance to the public and other professional bodies that the practitioner they employ has been checked, supported and monitored by a reputable accrediting member organisation.

I am extremely passionate about animal welfare and I will enjoy working with you and your canine companion to keep the training positive at both ends of the lead.


At Steve Throup Dog Training for better Behaviour I offer professional help and training whether you have a new puppy or a dog with behaviour issues.

“Steve came to us when we got our puppy & gave advice on how to set up our home. He reviewed us after 4 weeks, gave us advice on toilet training & how to make Dotty comfortable being alone. We did recall & lead training which was easy to follow. Steve was easy to work with, his advice is invaluable”

David Evans

“Towan is CollieX New Zealand, Steve was knowledgeable and advised on approaches to the behaviour traits we might see. He was helpful with advice on equipment, food and training. Steve’s approach is calm and patient. I am sure Steve’s support has contributed to a well behaved and loving dog”
