We started using Cwtches when our Springer was 6 months old and are still continuing 2 years later! Georgi puts great effort in getting to know each member of her pack individually and gives more love to our Jupiter than we could possibly hope for. We never need to worry about his safety, and quite frankly I think he enjoys his walks with her more than with us! She has been very adaptable to his allergies and his (sometimes quite persistent) love of water. Each dog is treated as if it's one of her own whilst maintaining good discipline and routine. I'm not quite sure what we'd do without her! More...

It is never easy to leave your dog with someone else. From the first moment I saw Georgie I knew my dog was going to be fine with her. Every dog is different and Georgie has the patience, the care and the knowledge to make sure your dog is happy and safe. I have a Beagle who wasn't the best at recall, that has changed. I can now walk in a park and let him free (being a Beagle he remains stubborn) and not be stressed he is not going to come back. My dog refuses to leave the house without me with the exception of Georgie. She is the best! More...

I can’t put into words what Georgi did for Issac- she quite literally saved him! Issac has separation anxiety and was overly dependant on me being around. He showed destructive and possessive behaviour when left alone. Georgi was fantastic! She helped him socialise with other dogs and taught him boundaries. She was there at the drop of a hat to take Issac and never let us down. She went over and above with the hours of care she provided for him. More...

We love Georgi. She loves dogs. She understands dogs, especially the quirkier breeds (beaaaagles).
Dobby always stays with her and the Beagle boys when we go away, we wouldnt ask anyone else now!

Georgi was amazing with my wayward dog. She is loving and firm and he was super excited to see her each time. She treated him as one of her own.
I’ve learnt an awful lot and Georgi taught me about my own expectations and boundaries. I would most definitely recommend her. Very professional and friendly.

Georgi is my dogs' best friend and my faithful support, and we wouldn't do without her: they are safe (my priority) and have fun (definitely their priority). One's a young tearaway and the other an ancient dawdler, and I'm totally confident in Georgi handling both -she loves dogs and is genuinely interested in and knowledgeable about all their weird and wonderful canine ways. Cwtches recommended by us three! More...

Georgi is great and our little rescue Jack Russell Terrier Lola loves her. She keeps us in the loop which is always reassuring and we know we don’t have to worry when Lola is with her. She’s been very understanding of our need for flexibility which we appreciate so much! More...

I wouldn’t trust anyone else with our two little dogs. Georgi is so friendly, reliable and always goes that extra mile! Would highly recommend!

Georgi is not just an amazing “dog walker” she is an amazing person too, who takes her job very seriously. She absolutely loves my dog Paddy and the difference in him since she started walking and training him has been unbelievable. I never thought when I rescued him 3 years ago that I would ever be able to go out with him off lead, Georgi changed all that and Paddy adores her! More...

Q&A

Without doubt, it's being around dogs. Whether I'm walking or training, each and every member of the Cwtches pack is loved.

My own dogs, THE BEAGS!
Beagles are a breed like no other, and I had to learn quickly how to manage the absolute hurricane that they were. Traditional 'balanced' training methods didn't appeal to me; I didn't want to be waving a bottle of coins at them or choking them into compliance, so when I found the IMDT and learned how to train dogs through reward and positive action I couldn't believe how wonderfully cooperative they were. Positive reinforcement has improved my relationship with them so much. I want everyone to experience that joy and bond with their own dogs.

I'm passionate that every dog should have the best opportunity to be the goodest boy/girl. Dogs are here for a good time, not a long time.
