Who We Are
We’re working dog owners and know what it can be like living with a smart and energetic dog! Without an appropriate channel, their boundless energy and unmet natural instincts can come out in all sorts of problematic ways: running, chasing, playing, hunting and lack of hearing when they’re busy doing something ‘important’ to name a few!
Our qualified, experienced, and knowledgeable team provide Dog Training and Equipment from our base near Cambridge in East Anglia. Our passion is providing stimulation and structure by sharing our tried and tested training methods and tools with fellow dog owners so that they can enjoy spending time with a happy and satisfied dog.

Here are just some of the testimonials we have received.
Good quality product. Just at the very beginning of using it with my puppy. Using in conjunction with the online training manual. My pup loves sitting on the board.
This is an incredible venue with absolutely amazing sessions run by Emma Filby. My springer spaniel Oakley is so happy to be training. He is as enthusiastic at the end of training as he is at the start. We always have so much fun. Emma's time, patience and guidance is appreciated she always makes you feel at ease. I highly recommend Emma at Anglian Dog Works.
We started with sharing private lessons with a sibling pup 🐶 I was quite nervous initially but Emma soon put us at ease and we had the best first session so we carried on and I was so surprised by how much lady took on and how much it exhausted her… trust me that is not an easy thing to do 😂 we have since moved into club sessions, I have learnt so much and we both enjoy it so much, Emma is super patient and makes you feel comfortable .. even when the owner seems to forget her lefts from rights ☺️ thank you Emma we love it
My dog absolutely loves his agility classes and Emma. Excellent introduction to agility! Each session is well thought, each exercise is adapted for each dog (for example for younger dogs lower jump etc), and a lot of fun for dogs and their humans. On top of that Emma is a fantastic trainer not only with the dog but also the handler. Couldn't recommend doing agility with Emma more!
My dog absolutely loves these. Mostly use them as meal topper, but also work great as high value rewards.
My dog loves rabbit ears. Excellent chew for your little ones. And it is also odourless!!
Great product. Our dog loves it and it’s really helped with her training
I've attended the beginners agility course with two of my own doggos, a working cocker and a cockapoo - both completely different in every way, especially speed and handling techniques, but both absolutely loved the course with Emma, her little hints and tips have been invaluable and we continue to enjoy and thrive in the agility club too! Highly recommended 🐾
I have loved working through this course with my 17-month-old Labrador Retriever, Sindy. Being new to dog training, detail such as how many treats to count out for an exercise is very welcome. The "goal to achieve" sections are especially helpful, they make it very clear when to move on to the next step.
I have also found your recommendations for equipment and treats to be excellent. As well as a place board, I have bought the treat bag, grain-free fish biscuits, pure paté and sprats. It will be yak chews next I think.
Bought a place board two weeks ago. It's made to a very high standard and good quality. My dog is happy to use it. Also rabbit years go down very well!
Myself and my Romanian rescue Maggie had our second one to one agility session with Emma last Thursday. Maggie has high anxiety and struggles with people she doesn't know. Emma is so amazing with her and it instantly puts her at ease!
It's been a while since her first session but I was so impressed with how much she remembered. She's very unsure of confined spaces, so her biggest achievement was the tunnel with a turn! By the end it wasn't a concern to her at all.
She was still on such a high after her session that when when we got home she kept running around the house with her ball (she rarely plays with toys only when she's super happy) and then slept all night long!
We will definitely be back to keep improving her confidence. Thanks so much Anglian Dog Works!!
Arrived quickly and was well made . Great help in training
Really useful guide to keep on your phone for when you're out with your dog - clear & concise with lots of photos. I found it most helpful to watch the videos in the online course first then use this as a reminder during the session
Great quality board that's really helped with training our crazy puppy to stay on command! Would recommend some of the sprats too - perfect healthy & tasty treats to use while training
I did an agility taster session with my Springador Holly and we really enjoyed it. It was a great way to see if agility was something we both wanted to pursue, which it now is! Emma was a patient, thoughtful trainer who adapted exercises easily for each dog, enabling us to all achieve something from the session. Thank you
