Puppy and Dog Training in Oxford and Surrounding Areas

About Goody 4 Paws

Goody 4 Paws Icon

My name is Sue Durham and I have over 38 years’ experience in competitive obedience dog training.

It was both my love of dogs and the enjoyment I gained from training them that led me to start Goody 4 Paws in 2004. I offer high-quality training in/around Oxford and Abingdon.

Underpinning my training methods is kindness. My methods are reward-based, ensuring that puppies, dogs, handlers all have an enjoyable experience. Classes are small, with individual attention given to each handler for every exercise. Puppies up to 6 months of age for the puppy training course and dogs over 6 months of age for the dog training course. At the end of each class, comprehensive handouts are given, detailing all exercises covered and the methods of training to use as an aide memoir.

I also offer home visits for 1 to 1 training. Home visits are for a one-hour duration at a time. Please see the Home Visits page.
