Offering positive, reward-based training

I'm a fully qualified, experienced dog trainer.

 I've owned dogs for over 20 years and  I'm

passionate about helping people get

the very best from their dog.


I use scientifically-proven, fun activities

to train your puppy or adult dog to become

a happy, confident pet that you can be 

proud of.

Puppy Training

Puppies are wonderful!! They are cute and cuddly and give us love and laughter. They are also complex animals going through a number of developmental stages over a short period of time. Their experiences, positive or negative, during these early stages contribute to the character of the adult dog.

Private Lessons

For more personalised training, I offer one to one lessons. Initial consultations last 90 minutes and can be taken in Melsonby, near Scotch Corner or in the owner's own home.

This is a valuable way to learn how to build your dog's confidence, develop a good bond with your dog and get on the right track with training.

Behaviour Consulting

I offer positive solutions to problems you are having with your dog. This will be done by teaching your dog to make the right choice by rewarding and reinforcing their good decisions. I’ll help you manage your dog’s behaviour and help him achieve his full potential through redirection and fun exercises that will change your relationship with your dog.

Beginner Agility

Fitness, fun and focus for you and your dog. Dog agility is a great way to practise basic training skills in a fun, high energy way.  These classes are a great way to get started in agility. 

Agility is a great way to build a dog's confidence, reinforce essential commands and provides a fantastic opportunity to bond and have fun with your dog. 

Training Programmes

 Do you have a grumpy or barking dog? Is your dog anxious or nervous in some situations? Do you want to improve your dog's behaviour on walks and / or in your home? 

I run bespoke training programmes that will help you with the problems you're having with your dog. 

Home Visits

Home visits are not just for dogs with serious behavioural issues, many people and dogs are happier working in their home environment. They are ideal for people who can't attend classes due to work or family commitments, don’t drive or have mobility issues.
