About Us!

We are a little different to traditional dog training classes, our classes are split into 2 aspects..fun training games and practical understanding, enabling owners to understand their dogs and play fun games to give them real life skills.

Dogs are part of my everyday life. I own 2 spaniels myself who I train with in Agility and many other areas. I teach a variety of dog training classes and Workshops in Derbyshire and we also host a number of workshops featuring some of the top dog trainers in the UK.

I absolutely love what I do, working in the gorgeous Derbyshire Peak District surrounded by rolling hills and countryside, I work with some fantastic people and dog’s and I really enjoy helping their relationships and confidence with their dogs grow through our training programmes, classes, workshops and one to one consultations!

I am a firm believer that by interacting with your dog in a positive, fun, relaxed and enjoyable way you can achieve amazing results and create the most fantastic bond !

My philosophy is:

Play… Train… Enjoy… Succeed!

I only ever use positive, fun and reward based training. Every dog is an individual and I pride myself on adapting the training to suit their specific needs and struggles.

I have previously been a dog walker for a number of years, walking a variety of breeds, sizes and temperaments! I also volunteered my time at a local animal shelter where I both walked and trained the dogs in the shelter.

My background is in counselling and psychotherapy where I hold a number of qualifications in this field, but my interest soon turned to canines and after spending time with them daily I realised I wanted to know more so I retrained and haven’t looked back!

I have a Diploma in Canine Behavioural Training in which I received the highest grade a Distinction.

I am Certified and qualified Agility Teacher and Concept Based Dog Trainer.

I am an Approved Instructor with the \dog Training College.

I regularly attend the latest workshops and courses to keep my skills current and up to date with any new developments and changes and I continuously study a range of online and practical courses in all areas of Dog Training and Behaviour.

I have undertaken a vast range of courses with my own dogs; puppy classes, obedience, clicker training, sniffer workshops, agility workshops, focus workshops, rally, hoopers to name a few, so I also have a vast range of practical knowledge and experience.

Please see the personal development section for further information and a detailed list of my qualifications and experience.

I am CRB/ DRB checked and fully insured.

The Dog Training field is always evolving, it is really important for me to keep my skills topped up and fitting to the current times. We are a little different from traditional trainers, we work alongside the biggest Dog Training centre in the UK, Absolute Dogs to bring you current, up to date reward based training using games! Our aim is to transform the relationship you have with your dog through understanding their personal needs and playing the games which are right for them to take your training down the path of success!
