Hello, my name is Jess and I am a passionate and committed dog lover and pet care professional. I have 4 years of experience working with dogs in animal rescue and privately which has enabled me to undertake the most up-to-date behavioral training and means I have had access to a pool of knowledge from experts which is invaluable. I have worked as a rehoming and welfare coordinator in a rescue center and worked with dogs of all shapes and sizes helping them to find their perfect homes. This means I have dealt with dogs of all attitudes and ages and have loved every minute of it training and caring for their every need. I have worked with dogs with a range of behavioral issues from resource guarding to lead reactivity and everything in between and am confident with dogs of all sizes. I have dog sat and walked for many clients and see it as a passion and privilege to be able to meet so many fabulous dogs and owners and enrich their lives. I studied zoology at university and have attended clinical training including dog first aid. I am always looking for ways to improve my service all in order to improve your pet's lives and help them to have the safest most enjoyable time with me. I am comfortable walking dogs in groups or solo and am fully trained in socialization and dog safety, I try to make my walks as engaging as possible varying walking routes if necessary and engaging dogs with fun games such as scent trails or toy exchange tasks or even a simple game of fetch. I love to help dogs socialize in a fun and appropriate manner as I feel this is the best enrichment for any dog so I offer group walks and playdates. Thank you for considering me and I hope to spend some time getting to know you and your lovely pet soon

What inspired you to start your own business?

Working in animal rescue i was able to see the start of many dogs journeys which i loved but i found that many dogs needed help later on in their life. A lot if the time once a dog gets home is when they need the most support and being able to help owners during this time period is massivley rewarding for me. Utilising my expertise to help owners give their dogs the most enriching lives possible is the most fulfilling thing and i enjoy every second of it.

Dog Training FAQs

Expand all

Making sure your pup is trained properly really matters. Without the necessary groundwork, you’re risking your dog’s wellness and security, as well as the safety of any other dogs it comes into contact with. It’s also important your dog is trained so that it can integrate properly with you and your family. Keeping it out of trouble will save you a lot of hassle (and potentially costly repairs too).

Making sure your dog listens to commands is very important. Not only will handling it be less stressful, but it can stop dangerous conflict with other animals. Furthermore, if your dog doesn’t want to listen to you, situations such as dealing with traffic can potentially become fatal. On the upside, having a well-trained pup enables you and your pet to socialise properly with other dogs and their owners.

Having a dog that is obedient means that life around the home becomes plain sailing. With good manners, your dog will be able to tell the difference between right and wrong behaviour, while being able to foster good relationships with other members of your family. These connections can help to build a fruitful relationship with your pet as part of the family. Time well spent together will allow you to both grow together, sharing experiences and creating the type of memories that make having a pet so worth it.

How about becoming an authority figure yourself? Although your trainer will help your dog get up to scratch, they will also teach you a great deal about the fundamentals of dog training. This includes not only how to handle your own dog, but principals that you can use to understand and better interact with other dogs too. Being able to help out less-informed dog owners can be a wonderful gift to have, and something that you can take further if you enjoy it.

Having a well-trained dog also means that taking your pet to the veterinarian will be a lot easier than it would be otherwise. Considering the nature and volume of work that they have to do, being a vet is tough, let alone dealing with an uncooperative pet in their surgery. In some cases, dogs can become violent when approached by a vet – definitely something they don’t need. By having your dog properly trained, you can avoid injuries – for both your dog and your vet – as well as unnecessary embarrassment upon visits.

When hiring someone to train your dog, there is plenty to think about. The needs of both you and your pet have to be considered and so taking some time to sit down and work out what is important to you is a must. Down below are a few of the questions you might ask when it comes to finding the right dog trainer –

Should I go for group or private training? Each comes with pros and cons – those with a brand new dog can expect their pet to socialise and start to develop relationships with other dogs.

Does my dog need generalised training or would training in a specific area suit it better? One example of this is if your dog has an issue with barking, or separation anxiety. In these cases, someone that can specialise in tackling these issues would be optimal.

Do I need long-term training or do I need a quick fix? Goals such as conditioning your dog for agility or developing a routine will need more time with a trainer.

You should also take care to see what type of strategies your trainer uses. There are a wide variety of techniques that can be applied in order to change your dog’s behaviour – but not all of these involve kindness and care. It’s good to talk to prospective trainers about the ways in which they choose to teach your dog, including methods of both discipline and praise. Techniques such as positive reinforcement are very beneficial for dogs and are particularly powerful, while being enjoyable for them.

While your dog is your priority, how you communicate with your trainer is important too. Your trainer’s should be able to translate their understanding into constructive advice. A good trainer can tell you both what is working in terms of training your dog, and what isn’t. This includes passing on insights of what to do to correct certain issues, while conveying these ideas in a constructive, friendly way. In order to do this, a trainer needs to not only be able to express themselves clearly, but also be diplomatic and observant.

There are various ways in which you can choose to train your dog. Some owners opt for private lessons, while others will put their dog through group daycare.

Group sessions are valuable not only because they are more budget friendly, but also because they are better as a long-term option. This is because your pet will have time to get to grips with a wider variety of commands. However one-on-one training provides your dog with lessons that are specially tailored to their needs, helping them learn in the best way for them.

There are also the various levels of obedience training to take into account. As well as classes specifically for puppies, there are basic educational classes, adult training, agility and advanced tutoring. Which of these you go for can affect pricing, as well as how quickly your dog learns (depending on its needs and comprehension).

Yes! You might be surprised to hear that dog training can be done remotely, through online video platforms like Zoom. They can take the form of group sessions or one-to-one classes to tackle certain individual behavioural issues. Many customers prefer online dog training for all sorts of reasons, like saving on travel time and costs.
