Dog Training Oxford

My name is Sue Durham and I have over 35 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 May 2004.

I offer dog training classes in Botley for dogs over 6 months of age, comprising 1-hour classes, held over a six-week period. Please see the “Dog Obedience Classes” page via my main website via this link: I also offer Puppy Training classes. If your puppy is under 6 months of age, please see the “Puppy Training” page via my main website via the link above.

Why you should choose Goody 4 Paws for your dog
training in Oxford

Underpinning my training methods is kindness. My methods are reward based, ensuring that puppies, dogs and handlers all have an enjoyable experience. Classes are small, usually no more than 7 puppies/dogs, with individual attention given to each handler for every exercise. At the end of each class, comprehensive handouts are given, detailing all exercises covered and the methods of training to us as an aide memoir.

I also offer home visits for 1 to 1 training. Home visits are for one-hour duration at a time. Please see the “Home Visits” page on my website vis this link

Goody 4 Paws is still working through the Coronavirus outbreak using video via Whatsapp or Zoom.

There is no need to wait until the outbreak is over to get help with training your puppy or with any dog related issues.


Goody 4 Paws puppy and dog training courses can be done via Whatsapp or Zoom. This can be completed in 4 training sessions, as per the home visit courses. The sessions can be done at any time of the day between 10am and 6pm, Mondays to Sundays. I have a Facebook Portal for Whatsapp and a laptop for Zoom. You will need either a phone, laptop, desktop computer, all with camera and microphone, or you own Facebook Portal.


I will use a life-size toy dog to demonstrate the exercises (or my own dog, where appropriate) and I will send you the training notes accompanying the lesson by email; these I normally hand out at the end of classes and Home Visits.


The sessions can be arranged via email or telephone. All 4 sessions must be scheduled at the same time and paid for before the commencement of the second session at the latest. The cost of the 4-session course for puppies and dogs is £90.


I can also help with individual dog training or behaviour issues by live video via Whatsapp or Zoom. The cost for dog training or dog behaviour issues is £22.50 per session and must be paid in advance of each session.


Additionally, I can do Home Visits, as long as the training is outside and we observe the Social Distancing Rules that we have been told to apply. Please see the Home Visits page.
