I can’t recommend Vanessa highly enough. I contacted her when my dog developed a behavioural issue and was at my wits end! ! She came out to train Asha in our own environment, and was always punctual. She showed me the strategies I needed to use to improve the behaviour. However, she didn’t just take over with the training- she showed me how to train her myself, which was so important to me. I noticed a change from week 1. We have now completed our training programme and my dog has come on so much. She has a wealth of experience and has been absolutely brilliant. Many thanks Vanessa!! More...

My dog Scooby stayed with Vanessa for four nights recently and had the time of his life. I could see how much fun he was having in the photos and videos that Vanessa sent and he even managed to sleep on the bed. I'd thoroughly recommend Vanessa for boarding and daycare, and I'm sure she's also a brilliant trainer. Scooby will definitely be going back! More...

Well, Vanessa is not only an amazing dog trainer and minder but also a lovely warm, kind person. She has a genuine passion for what she does and our dog Buddy loves spending time boarding at her countyside cottage. Her training methods are very precise and easy to follow and they absolutely work. Our fella was sitting, giving the paw and rolling over in no time! Would highly recommend. More...

I had never left my dogs with anyone but family so I took my time in choosing the right place. Vanessa's experience, professionalism and love of furbabies shone through and immediately put my mind at ease. Daily updates and photos were sent. My two were completely chilled on our return so I could tell that they'd had a blast. I would 100% recommend Donadea Doggy Day Care. I hope to book them in just for a fun day every few weeks as they loved it so much More...

Vanessa is brilliant. We just had Sox staying with her for 21 days and she sent us regular updates and loads of lovely pics and videos of him having fun with other dogs especially Oisin, Brady, Buddy and many others. We were able to enjoy our holiday knowing he was being well looked after. He slept in her house with his pals. Vanessa only takes 3 dogs at a time for overnight stays so a nice small number. Our only worry was that he would not want to come home with us. Therefore we highly recommend 'Donadea Doggy Daycare Boarding & Training' for a luxury holiday for your dog... More...

Can't speak highly enough of the care given to Lily and Bailey when we were on vacation for 8 days. They were treated like royalty and it is hugely reassuring to know that your dogs are being cared for as well as you would care for them. Im still not sure they wanted to come home they were having such a good time ! More...

Vanessa took care of my 2 furbabies for 8 nights. She did everything to make them feel like they were at home including setting herself a bed up in the kitchen the night of the thunder to help ease Lilys stress as Bailey had himself well sorted under the duvet with Michael . my westie Lily has lung disease and is on several medications, 2 of which are inhalers so it was very important for me to have trust in the person minding her to ensure she gets her meds when needed. I also got daily updates on them and pictures of them having fun with the other dogs. thanks again Vanessa, Michael & Jaime. More...

Archie, our 14 month old Labrador spent 3 nights with Vanessa whilst we were away on holiday and he absolutely loved it. Having other dogs around for him to socialise with was so good for him and by all accounts, he was spoiled rotten. Thanks Vanessa and family for treating Archie as one of your own! More...

Vanessa has been training our lab/staffie X Bear and she has done an amazing job with him. Before his training we couldn't leave him alone with the kids as he would knock them over and they just didn't enjoy him like they do now. After only a couple of training sessions he was much calmer and my 3 year old can now play with him and he sits by her side all thanks to Vanessa. I would highly recommend DDD. More...

Positivity and kindness every step of the way. I’ve learned a lot about my troubled little JRT having spent just a few minutes with him and Vanessa. Remarkable!

Vanessa has been taking Brady for the best part of 2 years, initially for training as a pup and now for doggy day care. Can't recommend her highly enough. .. Brady adores her and is best friends with Vanessa's greyhound Oisin. Very happy and grateful to have someone local who looks after our dog so well :-) More...

We have been lucky enough to have our Siberian Husky puppy in training with the amazing Vanessa of Donadea Doggy Daycare and just wow! Not only is she an expert, and so professional, but she makes the whole experience so easy. She’s so patient, honest, helpful and encouraging. Her techniques are effective and easy to replicate for all family members, and it’s amazing the difference each session and the correct follow up at home makes. And this is all with a puppy overflowing with energy, who is also a notoriously stubborn breed! We really can not rate DDD and Vanessa highly enough for any doggies who need to learn the right way!

Getting to work with dogs and cats is my passion. There is nothing more satisfying than helping owners to train their dogs or understand their cats for a happier and easier life for both furry friends and their human.

My loves of all animals and wanting to work with them on a day to day basis.

I train dogs with positive reward techniques only which means dogs enjoy their training sessions, No dog is untrainable and will never physically or mentally be scolded or punished during my sessions. It's all about learning, understanding and guiding through fun, affection and kindness. My techniques are easy for owners to follow through with when I am not there.
