Stress Free and Fun

Dog Training for All

Where training is just as much for the handlers as it is for the dogs, we provide a fun and rewarding approach to better understanding your companion.

Kennel Club approved training in the

Good Citizen Dog Training Scheme

The largest dog training programme in the UK

Puppy Foundation

Provides a safe and controlled way of socialising your puppy with other puppies and lays down the foundation for education and training.  On completion, puppies will respond to you and you will have a better understanding of the responsibilities that come with dog ownership.


Learn how to get your dog to walk and behave in a controlled manner on the lead, to stay in one position on command, and will allow you to clean, groom and inspect him or her without fuss.


Build upon and improve on lessons learned in the Bronze class with increased levels of difficulty, together with new concepts, such as controlled greeting, road walking and vehicle control exercises.

You’re growing in confidence, knowing how to handle more and more everyday situations with ease.


You’ve done incredibly well and have shown confidence and ability in all lessons learned so far.  You’re able to handle increased levels of difficulty with more advanced training, including new concepts such as relaxed isolation, stop the dog and send to dog to bed exercises.

Client Reviews

  • positive review  Tiki loves going to training at Monks Horton. She gets excited as soon as she knows where we are going. She is only ten months old but has come on in leaps and bounds. Justine and Eva make training fun and enjoyable for both dogs and owners. The activities are varied and interesting. They are tailored to ensure dogs are motivated and stimulated to learn new things. Tiki loves the agility element too and socialising with the other dogs. Thank you, Sarah and Tiki

    positive review  I have been to both the Thursday evening training classes at Saltwood and also the Saturday morning obedience and agility sessions at Monks Horton with my Labradoodle Oti. I have taken her since she was about 12 weeks old, so for over a year now and have found Justine to be a very experienced, knowledgeable and helpful trainer. Oti loves the stimulation of learning and has also benefited from the social aspects of training in a group. I would thoroughly recommend Koba Dog Training to any dog owner.

    positive review  These Saturday morning training sessions are great for dogs and owners. They get us both focused. I have just started 2 weeks ago and I can see great improvement. My pointer is now starting to complete the recall exercises almost faultless and his obedience has improved so much. He also loves his agility training and he is starting to do most jumps. I recommend very highly these training sessions: fun and very effective for dogs and owners! Thank you, Agnès (and Beak)

  • positive review  I cannot recommend Koba Dog Training highly enough. We are currently doing Saturday training at Monks Horton and soon to start our Kennel Club Good Citizen training in Hothfield. Justine is a very professional knowledgeable friendly lady with a strong ethos on play and reward based training. Her classes are very relaxed fun and varied, she shows and explains things clearly gives lots of positive encouragement, good advice and training tips. Hektor has benefited from being in a social class environment he's much more balanced and focused. Being a working dog needing lots of mental stimulation Justine provides lots of brain engaging exercises, he particularly enjoys the scent work and we have developed much more of a bond. I look forward to progressing a great deal further with my boy and Justine's help and training. Thank you Justine x
