What do you love most about your job?

I am so lucky to do what I am so passionate about and to be able to help families to enjoy life with their dogs more. It is amazing to see progress even after the first session and to be able to support my clients as they practice at home. What is the truly special part is to see clients building a strong relationship with their dogs build on confidence, trust and understanding.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I am shocked by how many trainers still use force to achieve the behaviour they want from their dogs. I have such a close relationship with my dogs, which is underpinned by the type of training I do with them. My aim is to use my knowledge and expertise to help other people have similar relationships with their dogs using positive reinforcement based training .

Why should our clients choose you?

Our unique package is what makes us more effective, fun and better value for money than our competitors. We not only deliver 5* training during classes and sessions but we also help you once you go to practice at home. This amazing additional support means you will need less sessions and make faster progress. You will also enjoy your training with your dog more using our fun positive reward-based methods which will enable you to build a wonderful bond with your dog. You will also feel less isolated and more supported as part of our online community as you can share your progress with other friendly like-minded dog and puppy owners.

Our methods are different from most dog trainers as we use the concept of choice rather than simply luring or bribing your dog to do the right thing. This training is so powerful as with practice your dog will learn to offer the correct behaviour even when a reward is not visible. Our training is based on fun and simple techniques as we know this is the best way to get results fast. We use strategic activities and what your dog loves to build your dog's understanding and desire to do what you would like them to.

Our experience and expertise enable us to have many different approaches so that we can find the method which will work best for you, rather than giving generic advice. We have developed different techniques to teach each skill so that we can select what will work best for you and your dog and if one method isn't effective we are able to adapt to meet your needs.

Please see our video for further information on what training we offer as well as our Facebook page and website and look at our reviews to see what other people have to say about our training.

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.
