Dog Training & Advice
We are dog training with a difference!
At Stepping Out Dog Training we look at the relationship between the dog and her owner, as well as the basics. We are looking for a balance in ALL aspects of a dog and its humans life so they can live happily in harmony.
Discover a world of happiness with your best friend.
Dogs are social animals who rely on the guidance of their humans for mental and physical stimulation to aid their happiness and health.
At Stepping Out Dog Training we teach fellow humans how to give Fido a enriching, balanced life.
Like humans, dogs also need companions, socialisation and a purpose in life. Sometimes we humans forget that our dogs need a balance in life, just like us, they like to have a little bit of fun along the way too.

Let me introduce myself...
My name is Heather Saville and I am the owner of Stepping Out Dog Training!
I have been working with dogs for over 15 years, rescuing and rehoming sled dogs through my charity Saints Sled Dog Rescue for the last 9 years...
In that time I have fostered and rehabilitated over 600 dogs personally, rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed over 870 dogs with SSDR and have completed the IMDT course in dog training and behaviour so I could help MORE people like you!
But that's just all numbers, my real aim is to help dogs and their humans to have a balanced HAPPY life together whether rescue dog or puppies, being able to share my tips and experiences with you to show you how AMAZING having a happy, health pup really is.
I do NOT judge you or your dogs abilities, we all find it a struggle at times but I am here to help you create balance to a happy family.
