I specialise in reward based training, with all my methods being force free but also fun and rewarding for both you and your dog. I tailor make training plans to suit your individual needs and I focus on strengthening the bond between you and your dogs.
My training methods focus on choice training which offers a modern way of learning through freedom of choice and in return we receive faster and more reliable results. I use clicker training with the use of treats and fun toys, I only use the most scientifically up to date methods that are proven to work through reward based training.
I am currently studying my top up degree (HONS) in Applied Canine Behaviour Management.
Obtained Animal science foundation degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare (2016) .
Just finished a fantastic puppy course with Bethany, I can’t believe how much we’ve learnt in such a short time scale. You are so talented with the way you can put dog owners minds at rest with basic training. Highly recommend Barking up the right tree and Furrytails for a superb experience More...
If you want an outstanding trainer, look no further!

Had our initial consultation with Bethany yesterday and we were very impressed. It was obvious this professionals knowledge is immense! Bethany put our mind at rest, was open and realistic about what to expect, and answered all of our various worries and concerns and explained everything in a way that totally made sense! More...
I highly recommend Bethany. We have been taking our 8 month old to teenager classes in Evesham and have now booked on the advanced class from January. I’ve previously found some dog trainers to be a bit patronising but Bethany is very approachable and friendly. The mini workshops she runs (as well as training classes) are great enrichment, plus she’s a great photographer if the mini workshop includes photos. Having classes available at the weekend as well as the weekdays is handy as I hate turning out on cold wet evenings! More...
Bethany met us to allow us to get on the right track with our new puppy. She was brilliant and gave us some fantastic advice. Cannot recommend enough. Will definitely be using her services in the future. More...
We love our sessions with Bethany and so does our bull terrier, Rex! She is so knowledgeable and experienced in her field and one thing we really enjoy is how she always manages to explain what your dog is doing, feeling and trying to communicate in the most simple way, which makes us feel closer to our boy because we understand him so much better now! The positive methods she’s taught us have become part of our day to day life making our boy not only happier and more appreciated for his hard work but also safer (he had a track record of swallowing things he shouldn’t!) We have been with Bethany for a good few weeks now and my family are already commenting on how much calmer and at ease Rex seems on walks and at home, how much slower he’s eating his food, and how he’s less protective over bones and high value food! We have also had a day using Bethany’s agility equipment and training methods which was so much fun and so lovely to see him doing things he usually wouldn’t get to show us that he’s capable of. I am always so impressed by how quickly Rex learns new things when using Bethany’s training methods. We have had dog training by other trainers previously and I would always refer Bethany in the future to interested dog owners as she is amazing, friendly and my dog adores her. 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ More...
Highly recommend Beth as assitance dog trainer. Help dogs come out of their shell, and explore the world. Very grateful for all Beths help on my dog recall x
Excellent Dog trainer, comes highly recommended. Very professional and goes above and beyond to give you the best advice for you and for your dogs.
Bethany is a brilliant trainer and behaviourist. Would highly recommend Bethany and her classes are great too, lots of brilliant ideas
So pleased we found Beth to help us with our protective little Norfolk. Excellent dog trainer with a very thorough understanding of her field. She has given us so much confidence to deal with issues that arise and really get the best out of our relationship with our beloved pooch. We can highly recommend. Thanks Beth, we really are very grateful ❤️ More...
Bethany is a great trainer and behaviourist. I would highly recommend Bethany. Her classes are great fun too
Having never had a dog before, I decided to get Hunter. He is a lovable, excitable friendly Dachshund cross Jack Russell. I had NO idea but thankfully was given Barking Up the Right Tree details and we met Bethany . She instantly made me feel welcome and not at all stupid with my adorable but untrained puppy. We went to puppy and teenage classes. Hunter developed a love of sausage but lost none of his enthusiasm. I gained confidence when training Hunter and have a wonderful little dog who knows how to behave ( most of the time ) Bethany is calm, gentle, fun and so supportive even with a novice like me. She has a natural way with dogs and a positive approach to training. Highly recommended. The above was Aug 2018. Update- after a visit to the vets where Hunter couldn’t calm down enough to be examined I contacted Bethany. I knew she’d help and I wouldn’t feel silly. We have been doing some 1-1 sessions working on Hunter’s calmness. Yet again Bethany knew the way to do it and Hunter is calmer and able to focus in the pet shop and even a dog friendly cafe! Well done Bethany and thank you again. More...
Excellent Dog Trainer highly recommended. Very pleased with the outcome. As we can now take our Dog out on walks with no reaction. Seen a big transformation on our Dog and lifestyle. More...
I can not recommend Bethany enough she is a amazing trainer. I have a disability and found some aspects of training Flo hard going. Well not anymore!! Bethany has shown me it's just a matter of adapting to what is comfortable for me. Flo and I are having a great time together she is learning so much and so am I I can't thank you enough Bethany see you next week Bev & Flo More...
Having attended multiple classes with my golden retriever I cannot recommend enough. Fabulous teacher, really good with the dogs
My border terrier is very reactive and taking him out for the day was a nightmare. However, with just over a month with Bethany he is so much better. Had a lovely day out today. Dog, bicycles and crowds. He was fantastic. Like a different dog. Bethany is amazing and really gives you as the dog owner the confidence to use the tools she gives you to deal with problems. Thank you Bethany. More...
Bethany is amazing!! I’ve attended a few training sessions in the past, but not many trainers “get” dalmatians. Bethany understands them, which as an owner is reassuring, and both I and my dog enjoy coming to the teenage classes. I’ve also booked my middle girl to attend one of the Easter workshops. More...
Bethany has helped me immensely with my Weimaraner Cooper. He was very reactive to other dogs on a walk and can now with Bethany’s help walk past other dogs in a polite and controlled manner and sometimes even a lovely sniff and hello. Bethany is a lovely caring lady with a genuine love of dogs. She is very professional and is full of ideas and tips to make life with naughty dogs much easier. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs some help and advice with their dog. She has made walks much more pleasurable. More...
Thank you so much, Bethany. Nell ( and us!) has learned so much in your classes. Your training methods have been instrumental in turning Nell from a hyperactive spoiled teenager into the mature dog she is now becoming. We’ll be back for more!
Beth is an amazing trainer! She has helped us with our extremely anxious Springer so much. She’s so different to any other trainer we’ve had and she makes a point of refreshing her knowledge frequently, so we’re always getting the most up to date advise! She’s always happy to answer our calls and texts whenever we need her. I would recommend Beth More...
Bethany is a fantastic trainer and I would totally recommend her classes. Alfie my cavapoo have been to Beth's fun tricks, agility and Tenacious Teenagers classes, all have been fun, interesting and I have learnt so much. All classes have been well organised and professionally run. Most importantly Alfie loves the classes and has benefited greatly from them, needless to say we will be enrolling on another class in the near future. Thanks Beth x More...
Great learning experience for puppy's and owners. We'll worth the visit
Absolutely brilliant trainer, lovely environment. highly recommend
Relaxed fun training that teaches both dog and owners. No matter the level of your dog your made to feel welcome
Enjoyed the happy hounds course! Lots of interesting things learnt to carry on with at home
easy to learn and fun. my puppy loved it and can't wait to the next course.
Fun and friendly training
Bethany has helped a lot with our dog. great ideas to make training fun and lovely to see the results! Thank you!
Beth’s classes have worked wonders for our Pup, highly recommend! X
Fantastic fun training our ‘Poppy’ she has learnt so much in just 6 sessions. Your positive training techniques are great, Poppy is now focused and waiting for her next direction. We can’t wait to move onto your next advance training course next week. Thank you so much xxx your love for dogs clearly shows and you make everyone feel at ease (humans included). I would strongly recommend you to anyone who wants excellent training structures with positive rewards in a friendly environment. More...
We did the 6 week Fun Tricks class with my 18 month old Cockapoo. Rufus absolutely loved it and I’m so impressed with the skills Rufus and I learnt with Bethany’s tuition. From roll over, walking on his back legs and even riding a skateboard. He’s such a clever dog and shows what potential a dog has! Thank you Bethany! � More...
Bethany is great at what she does, I have a nervous labradoddle who was scared of motorbikes and loud noises but now he is coping so much better, thanks to Bethany's advice. He is also nervous around some other dogs, which in turn made me anxious but with Bethany's help we are both doing well and I can now really enjoy our walks together. Thank you Bethany More...
I see the positivity Beth, shows to these happy dogs. I am so pleased she is a force free dog trainer. It encourages clients to respect dogs individuality in fair and inhumane manner. Well done Beth.. Keep up the good work :) More...
Bethany is an extremely compassionate and caring behaviourist who only ever has your dogs and your needs at heart, extremely experienced, incredibly knowledgable, passionate about dogs and it shows! Highly recommend
We have just finished the beginner classes and Izzy loved it. We tried a different class in a hall before which left her very anxious so having the classes outside was perfect for her. I would definitely recommend going to Beth's classes More...
highly recommended. Bethany has been a great help with our dog max.
we have been to a few trainers but now we are seeing good results and improvements.
Thor and I have learnt so much at puppy class, it’s amazing how well he’s come on and his willingness to learn when sausages are involved lol
It is obvious from the moment you meet Beth, that she is a dog lover and a compassionate animal person. She is calm, caring yet firm and this approach gets great results. Her enthusiasm and dedication shines through and I would recommend her as the 'go to' dog trainer in her area. Your dog will be in the best possible hands. More...
Chester absolutely loves coming to training classes. Beth is so relaxed and really is so knowledgeable and helpful in trying to get the best for both of us. I couldn't recommend her enough!
Tilly and I really enjoyed it,Beth has a very kind way of teaching and I learnt a lot as well as Tilly.We were really happy and just goes to show you can teach an older dog new tricks,with the help of a good teacher,I would highly recommend her.
Just recently finished a 6 week course with my energetic spaniel, I can’t rate Beth highly enough. Her training methods all explained thoroughly each session have worked wonders not only for the dog but for myself too! Next step crufts!!! Thanks again Beth � More...
I have just started taking my Vizsla to Beth's Adult classes and highly recommend her. I have tried a few classes in the area but Beth's approach is very refreshing. She focuses on positive praise, she is extremely knowledgeable and a dog lover. The classes are fun and rewarding. My dog loves going there and we are both learning so much! More...
We attended the advanced puppy course which was held outside in a secure paddock. Beth’s training methods were perfect. She made sure she spent equal time with all dogs and each class we fitted so much in . She realised that all dogs are different and tried different methods to suit. Lexi has come on so much in the past few weeks and I have learnt so much from Beth. Will definitely be doing some more training classes soon. More...
We had completed a basic puppy class with another trainer before finding Beth but from the moment Beth started speaking to the class we knew she was different and we would all enjoy the classes and learn from her. We attend classes as a family so that the children can be involved with training too and Beth is really accommodating (there are 7 of us!) Class sizes are small enough that Beth has time to help and advise each dog and their owners and she recognises that they aren't all at the same stage of learning so will offer extra help to master the basics or extra tips to advance once you've got the basics. Beth is really approachable and knowledgeable, clearly a dog lover and passionate about what she does! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. More...
I’ve now been to 3 sessions with Bethany. She has a soft gentle approach. My Sprocker is now 2 years old and is a nightmare on lead. Bethany showed me tactics during my first group session that make sense to me and my lively dog! It has been such a revelation. She is so calm... never have I felt patronised....and never has she made me feel that my dog is a ‘nightmare’. Although I’ve only attended 3 sessions... they’ve all been fun and positive. I also love the fact that Bethany’s classes are non competitive. Thoroughly recommend. More...
We attended puppy training with our rescue pup and she was really very frightened when we entered the building on the first session. Beth has a calm and reassuring approach and trains solely through positive methods. My pup quickly began to associate the classes with pleasure and fun and by the third session entered the building excitedly. Because Beth has such a good understanding of canine behaviour, the sessions really helped me to understand my pup better and to bond with her. The classes are small so Beth is able to give everyone a bit of 1 - 1 time whilst you practice new skills. I like the fact that Beth recognises that each dog has it's quirks and may need more or less time developing skills, but she never has "dog of the week" or other such nonsense that may make an owner feel they're failing. I'm looking forwards to attending the next set of classes. Thank you Beth, for making puppy training such an enjoyable experience. More...
Beth is an excellent dog trainer using both force and stress-free methods. She really cares for and understands dogs, highly recommend her.
Highly recommend Beth to anyone looking for a trainer who is skilled at helping both dogs and people learn and build their relationship. Beth uses methods that enable learning without force or fear. Love her! More...
Really enjoyable morning doing some sniffer work. Would love to bring Presley back for some more.
We took Archie for a scent workshop and he and we had an absolutely great time! It was fantastic and couldn’t recommend enough! Would definitely like to do more!! Thanks again xx More...
Bethany is patient, knowledgeable and assesses situations so that she can give advice and pointers to change and adjust behaviours. As a reactive, highly driven shepherd dog, Ziggy is quite a challenge especially with other dogs but Bethany calmly reassures and I’m very hopeful this is a great long term plan for us! Agility was great fun too. Thank you � More...
We still have a few weeks left of our puppy class, so far we are very impressed with the training we are receiving for our Golden Retriever puppy.
I think we will be looking to progress onto the next level of training.
We can not recommend Beth and her training methods highly enough, if one method does not work with your dog then she recommends another, eventually the dogs get it right.
Thank you so much Beth More...
Bethany has an outstanding flair for bringing the best out of dog and owner! My ‘essential’ session was money well spent. As a new dog owner it left me feeling that I love my new companion all the more, and that I am empowered to help her. Great, and swift follow up too More...
Fantastic would recommend to anyone who wants to give their new puppy the best start or bond some more with their existing dog. We had a really difficult time when we first got our puppy; we were worried for a bit as he's a big breed and we are first time owners that we'd got ourselves in too deep! He was wary of everything (cars, people, dogs, objects etc barking at everything). Bethany has been brilliant. We had six 1-2-1 behaviouralist sessions with her and she adapted her teqniques to suit us and our puppy seamlessly. The results are incredible. He's such a pleasure and now he's going from strength to strength in the adolescent classes. Everyone I've met at the classes is really seeing the value of it too and are often surprised at what we achieve in just the hour that we are there. Would highly recommend and when we get our next dog we will be straight to Bethany without a doubt :) More...

Highly recommend these classes.
I am so pleased that I took my dog to Beth as I had become worried that she was not happy meeting strange people and barking at them.
I have had such positive results from her advice and I can see an improvement already in her behaviour after just a few days. More...
Biscuit was reactive to other dogs, to the point were i felt restricted on my dog walks, beth has visited us a few times and each time biscuit has improved greatly. I know there is no overnight cure but the improvement is massive and beth has given me the confidence to improve my walks with her and i know things will keep improving. I would highly recommend Beth to anyone who needs help with their dogs. More...
Attended an Easter scent workshop. Beth was excellent my puppy had a fantastic time. Highly recommended.
Roxy was suffering from separation anxiety and with Beth’s advice and training she’s now coping really well. I highly recommend Beth. She’s done wonders for my relationship with Roxy and I am so grateful. More...
Beth has been brilliant with our Miniature Pinscher Milo (who is not the easiest of breeds to train! a little dog with BIG attitude). We had a one to one home visit and he took to Beth straight away, it was amazing and comforting to see her immediate rapor and understanding of his breed and nature. She has given us some brilliant pointers and new ways of training. I would recommend Beth to any dog owner and am looking forward to working with her on some future projects. More...

Beth comes highly recommended by me! and more importantly Milo the min pin! X
