“We have been taking our puppy to Islana since she was about 6 months old, and Islana has been fab at getting us to work to get the best out of our dog. Islana listens to you each week and will work on the elements you want from your dog. We now have a well rounded puppy and can’t thank Islana enough.”

Grace Le Couillard

“We rescued Bodhi in March and went to training with Islana about 3 weeks after we got him. Islana and her team are extremely knowledgeable around training dogs and break skills down into manageable steps for puppies of all abilities and always made sessions fun for both puppy and puppy parent!”

Leanne Emma

“Islana has helped me with both my dogs. My oldest dog became reactive when walking with me after I had a short illness. She was always patient and kind as my confidence had been knocked. More recently she has helped me with techniques to calm my youngest dog and his anxiety. Her knowledge is immense and she is always very kind and explains things thoroughly. Thank you”

Anne-Marie Webb

“We came to Fun4Dogs when we first adopted Enid in 2018. We were looking for initial basic training but also to help us with Enids anxiety around other dogs. We first tried group classes but that was too much for Enid. So we moved to 1-1 lessons. With Islana’s help to show us what we need to do. Enid’s recall is almost perfect (she seems to go hard of hearing when dogs are around still) but she will drop to the floor (we call it her collie stalk mode). She heals well and she now has some doggy friends. None of which would have been possible without Islana’s initial help.”

Roisin Clare Kelly

“Sasha and I can not thank Islana enough for her encouragement and patience Sasha came to me as a rescue dog with many issues the most challenging being her reactive behaviour. With Islana’s guidance, we were able to avoid situations with redirection of Sasha’s focus. Thank you Fun4Dogs.”

Carmen Thomas

“Islana has been so incredibly helpful with our Springer spaniel Indi. She is amazing with dogs and humans alike! We’ve had some really great 1 to 1 sessions practising lead walking and recall. I would strongly recommend Fun4Dogs!”

Our Services

Fun4Dogs Puppy Training


We offer 6 live sessions in each course; our courses are specifically designed not only to correlate with the age group of puppies attending but are also tailor-made to each group this means that no course is the same, we understand that each dog is individual and has specific motivations in learning, this will differ in breed types and take into account owner needs.

We pride ourself in our professionalism and each class is delivered by a qualified Behaviour consultant, and assisted by at least one other qualified dog trainer, and a classroom assistant, this means you know you are always getting a knowledgeable professional service, and the dog to trainer ratio allows for us to be able to deliver individual time and care to each dog and owner.

We are constantly updating our knowledge and qualifications to deliver the most current scientific evidence-based training using only positive force free methods, to ensure dogs are happy motivated and learning in a stress-free environment.

Our courses have three stages, so they grow with your dog and adapt to the changes that dogs go through within their first year of development, and our team are highly trained to spot issues early and give you help and guidance to set up for success.

Our classes are all based in the West of the Island, with Venues at Communicare St Brelades and St Peters Indoor Market (Rifle Range).

Prices and Course availability on request.


Online Tuition &
Behavioural Consults

Here at Fun 4 Dogs, we understand that encompassing all learning styles is imperative to success in the training process, as part of our puppy classes our online sessions and video tutorials are key to this process, this allows dogs to be able to learn in the comfort of their home environment without the distraction of other puppies in the classroom, we have found this blend of learning to be super effective as it allows for owners to work on core skills within their own time.

In online sessions you will have access to a Qualified Behavioural consultant to ask any questions you may wish, this is a massive cost saving.

We cover subjects in more detail then can be done in a classroom including learning body language, discussing toilet training and common issues that arise.

You can train along with us with your dog in a comfortable environment.

Private Online Behavioural Consultations are available by request.

All sessions are recorded and sent to you so you can watch them at any time.
