I offer a friendly service which aims to help each dog and owner. I am always available to give advice to clients and non-clients, always with the interest of the client and the dog in mind. Having worked as a trainer and behaviourist for forty years I have a wealth of experience with all breeds and have owned many dogs myself, again a number of different breeds and crosses.
All dogs are trainable when you find the right approach and receive the right help. My approach is always a kind one, which will get the best from your dog and with a little effort on your part will give you the rewarding relationship with your dog that all owners want.
Puppy socialisation and early learning course, including lots of information on raising your puppy to be wellmannered (8 weeks, one hour per work),
Dog training classes (Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced). For puppies over five months and adult dogs of all ages. It is never too late to start training and we have had dogs of eight years old join our classes and achieve a good standard. All these classes are held at Gt. Cheverell, near Devizes, Wiltshire.
On Lead Group Walks - great for socialising your dog, increasing your knowledge of dog to dog behaviour, building your confidence around dogs, meeting likeminded people. Held in and around Devizes area.
Off Lead Group Walks - for dogs with a reasonable recall and social skills.
Behavioural modification work. Only occasionally is there a quick fix if your dog has unwanted behaviours, but with patience and perseverance you will achieve a change in his unwanted behaviour. The earlier you start the easier it is - like us dogs are creatures of habit - but you can teach an old dog new tricks.
Pre-purchase, puppy and rescue dog visits to talk over your concerns, advise and support you.
Current fees on inquiry, firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. 01380 812119 for a chat with no pressure to proceed.
As new puppy owners Jill helped us to develop a great relationship with Piper and instill good behaviour. We have enjoyed all of the classes from Puppy right through to advanced. Classes are friendly and advice from Jill, Joss and other dog owners invaluable. We totally recommend them More...
Superb training. Correct and professional but accomodates a wide range of dogs and owners. Tatty and I enjoyed it!
I very much enjoyed working with Sarah and Tatty while they completed their Puppy Course and progressed to our follow on classes.
A great dog training class with expert advice from years of experience.

Jill is a fabulous and knowledgeable trainer with so many years of experience. My boy Mylo loves going to her classes as it was fun as well as learning. I always recommend Jill and Leading Canines. More...
We've had help from Jill both with 1 to 1 behaviour advice, when we first had our rescue and then at her regular dog training classes and weekend walks - she's been fantastically helpful and supportive and we've learned lots - and had plenty of fun. Our dog is completely transformed and we've met lots of other lovely friendly dog owners - I can't recommend her too highly. More...
Manuka and I really enjoy our training with Jill and I have learned so much about how to become a better owner. Jill has a lot of expertise and the classes are friendly and relaxed - dogs and owners learn better like this. The group dog walks are fun too and allow the dogs and owners to make friends. I can recommend Leading canines to any owner - we keep coming because Manuka loves it. The weekly newsletters are a really good idea and often have useful tips and info. More...
We have just finished the puppy training with Jill and Joss, well worth every penny.
Our Stafford, Jude has benefitted immeasurably, even coming first in his first dog show and was commended on his great behaviour in the ring.
We are looking forward to beginner classes soon (having a break to socialize him more and trying him off lead for recall) before we start again.
This is our second dog with leading canines, and I can't rate them highly enough.
Thanks to them both for their patience and guidance. More...
was very professional and informative with many suggestions to assist us as new dog owners
Thank you! Dogs have given me so much joy I love helping others to have the best possible relationship with their dogs.
