Anna offers a friendly service to owners who would like to get the most out of their relationship with their dogs. She is passionate about the welfare of animals, but she also has a passion for helping people have a rewarding and fun-filled life with their canine companions. She offers tailored, one-to-one consultations using only positive reward-based methods.
Anna first started training dogs when she and her husband took on a Boxer rescue called Bubs. She had difficult behaviour issues around other dogs making everyday life challenging. Since then, Anna has immersed herself in the dog training world and aims to use her knowledge and experience to help others.
Anna continues to develop her knowledge and understanding through education, attending conferences and workshops. She has passed several courses with The Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training. Anna is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, The Pet Professional Guild and is a trainer for Dog AID.
Hi, I’m Victoria, I work with Anna teaching puppy 121s as well as assisting in puppy classes.
I have worked for the Dog's Trust for 5 years successfully rehoming some of the most difficult dogs in our care. Working for Dogs Trust, I have seen first-hand how positive initial experiences in puppy hood can have a huge influence on how our dogs feel about their world, which I think is why teaching puppies has a special place in my heart.
In addition to my careers with dogs I enjoy attending seminars and conferences regarding positive reinforcement training and behaviour, and have received additional professional development training through Dogs Trust. I graduated from Sparsholt College with a 1st in BSc Animal Management and Applied Science, and was awarded the Marwell Wildlife Prize for the highest overall performance on the course.
