Constantly developing and expanding, the COA portfolio now boasts over 11 different product ranges including Halti, (the 2016/7 World Branding Award winner), humane Baskerville muzzles, training accessories and the revolutionary hand-held Pet Corrector device (which interrupts unwanted behaviour by a hiss of air). The Company of Animals also acquired a much-loved grooming brand Pet Head, in 2016.

The centre specialises in all levels of dog training, offers behaviour consultations on veterinary referral, hydro and physiotherapy as well as helping to resolve legal issues about pets, in and out of court. This unique tradition gives Company of Animals the ability to constantly research and develop new products that help address pet-related behaviour and training problems, as well as providing a practical base on which to test new designs and principles of animal training.
