About Us

Dr Mugford established his veterinary referral service for problem pets in 1979 and since then it has gone from strength to strength. Now widely recognised as the UK's premier base for dog training and behaviour, the Centre helps thousands of people and their pets every year with everything from puppy training through to serious behavioural problems or even legal issues regarding their pet!

Does the centre only treat dogs?

Whilst the majority of our clients are dogs; we are able to offer advice and help on many species including cats, rabbits and parrots. Our centre 'stooge' dogs and farm animals are always close to hand to help with pets that need socialisation or to learn how to behave around livestock.

Can anyone drop by?

The centre has always operated an 'open house' policy to all those interested in the welfare and training of animals. Veterinary professionals, rescue centre staff, animal care students, service dog handlers and even school children are among the many visitors who come and 'see practice' with us every year.
