Great result thank you.... from unreliable and single minded to behaviour to make me proud. Poppy really enjoyed training with Deanna. Very simple to follow and easy to repeat! Thank you. Highly recommended. More...
Deanna is so good with my two German shepherds helping me to train them. She takes her time and nothing seems to be a bother to her. I would highly recommend partners in paw. More...
Deanna is so professional at what she does, she gives very helpful and knowledgeable advise. My cat is a rescue and is very shy and nervous, Deanna gave me information on what to do and products to use to help calm him and make him feel at home. Roly is now a completely different Cat and has come out of his shell so much! Thank you so much helping us. I also know Deanna as a Animal Behaviourist and Pet sitter, she looks after my Uncles Dogs whenever he is away on Holiday and nothing is too much trouble, she makes them feel at ease and keeps them occupied with plenty of walks and training activities. I would never go anywhere else for pet care and behavioural advise, if anyone is looking for a very professional and genuinely lovely person to look after their fur baby then Deanna is your Girl!

Deanna was absolutely amazing with a 1-2-1 training session with our little puppy Freddie! We were having a few problems with him biting and nothing seemed to be working that has worked with any of my previous dogs, but Deanna got to the cause of the problem and gave us some techniques that have been stopping the biting. She also helped us nail commands and now he knows sit means sit and not lie! More...
I can’t recommend Partners in Paw enough! Deanna really has a wonderful way with dogs and made me feal very relaxed about leaving our boys in her care. We have two Shih tzus one very affectionate the other a grumpy old man! Deanna gained the trust of mr grumpy and managed to get him outside, few people can! Murphy, mr affectionate, loved Deanna straight away, but she really won Harvey, mr grumpy over. You can rest easy having Deanna look after your much loved pets and we have her booked again already! A big thank you from us and a big lick from the boys! More...
Partners in Paw have been absolutely brilliant helping me work with my husky Sasha, and I wouldn't want anyone else sitting for me when I'm away as I know my pup will be treated just as well if not better than when I'm home. Partners in paw are very up to date with the latest science regarding animal behaviour, which really makes a big difference when training, especially with a dog like mine who isn't particularly food motivated. I definitely recommend partners in paw for all of your pet needs More...
Friendly, well qualified and professional animal behaviourist. Deanna was very helpful in resolving some behaviour issues with my german shepherd! She was courteous in dealing with Fred, I used her consultation services which were well worth the money and would recommend her to anyone who requires any behaviour assistance with their Dogs. I also enlisted her help for live in dog sitting which she was more than capable of delivering! Thanks Deanna and Partners in Paw! Would not hesitate to recommend her services A+++++ More...
Partners in Paw were brilliant with my wee Jack Rusell. Deanna helped us to stop a few little bad habits with Rosie and now, we will always plan for Partners in Paw to dog sit when we go away. Highly recommend.
Amazing results in helping with my naughty dog! Would recommended to everyone who ever needs a similar service!

Deanna is a fantastic trainer and her rapport with dogs is wonderful. Would definitely recommend her, she has great skills and knowledge and uses scientific facts to base her methods on.
Deanna is very professional and is brilliant with animals. She looked after my 2 dogs and my 2 cats and I was so happy with the service. They were very well looked after and I would happily use Deanna’s services again. More...
Would highly recommend this service. Deanna is very professional, trustworthy and skilled. She has lots of helpful advice on my dog and cats. Our husky has learnt to play some new rewarding games. Thank you Deanna may be looking to book you again in the autumn. More...
Deanna has helped out with our 8 dogs as both a daily dog sitter and live in when we are away. She is more than a calm and confident presence for them - keeping them entertained with stimulating games and working on their general behaviour/training. We have recently moved abroad and she helped with the relocation and settling in of the dogs, and we will continue to use her when we need a dog sitter here. Highly recommended. More...
