My name is Julia and I am a fully qualified dog trainer, 

educated and assessed by The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers

and a member of The Pet Professional Guild.

 

I will equip you with the skills, knowledge and understanding to build and enjoy

a rewarding and fulfilling bond with your puppy, adolescent, rescue or older dog

that will last a lifetime.

I not only teach all key behaviours and more, I also develop life skills helping your dog

to have optimism, resilience, independence, impulse control and

giving him / her effective coping strategies.

All my training, support and advice embraces modern, positive fear free methods

and uses reward-based techniques.

These have been scientifically proven to give long lasting results without causing

intimidation, fear or pain or using any aversive devices.

It is often referred to as positive reinforcement but put simply,

it’s giving something a dog loves in exchange for the behaviours we desire.

I will show you the best way to teach your dog so he / she is super keen to learn and get it right.

My training approach emphasises kindness, calmness and fun.

Science tells us that you learn much better when you're having fun!
