Our History

Johnston K9 is the East Midlands Premier Dog Training School. My parents have run Dog Training Classes, workshops and training events since the 1980's. I became invovled in these classes as soon as I was old enough, culminating in me taking full control around 2000. This was the year of Johnston K9s official creation.

Over time we expanded from a 1 night a week club, to the successful dog training company we are today, offering class based tuition 4 days a week, split over 9 different classes.

Recipients of The Midlands Enterprise Award for Best Dog Training Company - East Midlands - 2021, 2022 & 2023, alongside the Customer Service Excellent Award 2021, 2022 & 2023 from the same organisation.


Owned and operated by 2nd generation dog trainer Gareth Johnston, he and his team of trainers are able to draw on their collective experience in a range of disciplines in order to offer professional and domestic dog training to organisation and individuals worldwide.


Johnston K9 is dedicated to dogs and their owners. By utilising a variety of balanced training methods and a range of training environments we will help you build and maintain an excellent relationship with your dog and acquire a detailed and extensive foundation of knowledge to aid you through out your dog's life.
