Dog Training



Are you looking to give your puppy the best start, or perhaps you would just like to be able to enjoy your walks without the stress of having your arm pulled and worrying about your dog running off?

If so, I offer several different options for foundation skill training as well as offering Owner Trained Assistance Dog support.

 IN PERSON Training

Starting with a two hour Zoom consultation, where we discuss all of the theory side of giving your dog the best start, along with addressing all of your questions and problems, we then have in-person training sessions in your garden or local environment.


Are you worried about risking in-person training, with the current Covid-19 pandemic?  Or perhaps you are unable to make training during daylight hours, through winter?

If so, online training could be for you.  One to One Zoom sessions, or pre recorded course options available. 

Woodland Trust Group Classes 

I was approached by the Woodland Trust in early 2020 and asked to write and deliver a series of dog training sessions for the Uffmoor Wood site, in Romsley.

This was a new pilot scheme for The Woodland Trust, which is running once more in 2021.  The course of 4 group sessions are only £20 for all four! 

Behavioural Training

Do you live with a dog who really doesn't like being left alone?  Or perhaps you have a dog who is anxious, highly aroused, or aggressive towards other dogs or even people?

I specialise in dog reactivity (towards other dogs or towards people) and separation anxiety, having experience of living with dogs with these problems, as well as helping many dog guardians.
