My stylist is an expert in styling your dog to high standard. We will give you a free consultation, advising you what is best for your dog, as all dogs are different.
I also do one to one training for any age. I do a behaviour consultation for any of those problems you may have with your dog including dog aggression, people aggression, separation anxiety, resource guarding. Toilet issues.

Smart Dogs Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
I love working with dogs, they always give unconditional love. I feel proud when I see the improvement of dogs with behaviour problems, that may otherwise would have to be put to sleep or rehomed.
I also love to communicate with dogs, having that intuition to understand many problems that dogs display.
Dogs give us so much more than we can ever give back. A real joy and honour to work with them everyday.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I started to learn dog training 30 years ago when I owed my first dog, I went to the local dog training club which in those days was only run by police dog handlers, unfortunately although they only had knowledge on training police dogs. The training was to harsh, I with other dog owner decided to go on courses to learn how to train your dog with kind positive methods. We opened our own training club which we still run to this day. I am proud to say we are always full having 3 months waiting list. A few years later I started learning dog behaviour, many courses later I become a member of APDT. At the time 30 years ago I open a Grooming Salon as I was shocked the way the dogs were handled, and the methods used just stressed the dogs out' I wanted to have a Salon where dogs enjoyed coming too, where we have interactive toys and chew toys, where my staff have learnt how to keep the dogs calm.
Why should our clients choose you?
I hope clients choose me because I have 30 years experience. I am highly qualified but most important I care. My first thoughts are with the dogs. I am a qualified metaphysics councillor which helps me understand the owners problems with their dogs because I am training the owners not the dogs as they are with their dog 24/7 not me. I have also taken a course in animal communication, trust technique and tt touches.
