We train all fundamental commands and improved listening skills no matter the age, breed or size of your dog.

Upon collection you will have an extensive handover, where I coach you through the skills necessary as well as a one month programme tailored to you and your dog to continue the success back at home. After the programme you will receive a complimentary 121 as well as aftercare WhatsApp support.

FAQ’s About Dog Training

Whether you want to hit the re-set button and have your dog come to me for the ultimate doggy bootcamp by selecting one of my residential packages. Or if you would like the knowledge to correct common to more complex training struggles in a 121 session at home or at my training field or with a personalised training programme, there is a option for everyone. To find out more, please get in touch!

I cover the whole of Essex for 121 training, however for Residential training, I accept dogs from much further afield

I am a fully qualified dog trainer, canine behaviourist, and a qualified dog first aider, along with qualifications in puppy care and caring for elderly dogs. I also have a full Animal Activities License issued by Braintree District Council. This ensures my home ticks all the boxes to a high standard to provide you with peace of mind if you are booking a home stay & train package.

Therefore, I understand your dogs needs fully and I am passionate about giving your dog the best care and treatment possible. In the unlikely event, should an accident happen, your dog is in the best hands!

I deal with a wide range of training struggles from loose lead walking, recall, all the way to fear, reactivity and aggression. If you have a particular struggle, please get in touch to find out how I can help.

Loose lead walking, bed/place and boundaries. If you have a dog that can understand boundaries with a great bed/place command this can be used to solve many common problems in home. For example, food stealing, jumping up and over arousal to visitors and the doorbell. Finish this all off with a fantastic loose lead walk and you will be one happy owner!

Take The Lead!

Building Trust And Respect Between You And Your Dog

With a Bespoke training plan tailored to you, your dog, and your unique personalities we’ll produce a dog that is eager to learn and a joy to train.

Here are some qualifications that back our knowledge and commitment towards excellence.
