I am a rewards-based dog trainer covering Central London. A fully qualified Puppy School Tutor, I run puppy classes (currently online) for Surrey and South London Dog Training & Behaviour.

I love helping dogs learn and gain confidence. I particularly enjoy helping people understand what their dog is saying to them and watching the subsequent human-dog bond grow.

I volunteer at Battersea’s Dog & Cat's Home dog kennels so I am familiar with reactive and rescue dogs and particularly enjoy gaining their trust. I am fully insured and have a basic DBS certificate.

Both due to my interest in dog, and animal behaviour in general, and to ensure I am providing a service based on up-to-date scientific methods of training, I am constantly learning and have enrolled on and completed a number of courses:

  • Qualified Puppy School Tutor (Gwen Bailey's Puppy School)
  • Diploma in Canine Behaviour (Canine Principles)
  • Diploma in Canine Coaching (Canine Principles)
  • Advanced Certificate in Reactive Behaviour (Canine Principles)
  • Advanced Certificate in Rescue Dog (Canine Principles)
  • Certificate in Canine Anatomy and Physiology (Canine Principles)
  • Dog first aid certified (License 153244473780644) by Vet. Dr. Sophie Bell
  • Raw Food Advisor with Nature's Menu
