Creating Calm Canines in Egham and Chertsey, Surrey and surrounding areas.
I have been training dogs professionally since 2012. Providing pet guardians with kind, ethical, effective and professional animal behaviour, training & Care services.
I am hoping to provide support to pet guardians from the local area so that they “Don’t fret about their pet”: Ethical, kind and effective training solutions for all problems for all pets.
As a member of IMDT, INTODogs, Space Dogs, ISCP and a ‘The Real Dog Yoga’ Instructor all my training uses positive reward based ethical methods and is recommended by vets and rescue centres.
I attend as many workshops/seminars & webinars as I can to make sure all my knowledge and education is kept up to date, If you would like a list of these courses please email me and I can send you the very lengthy list.

I share my life with my Staffie cross dog Sookie, 2 cats Jaks & Lil and Bella the bunny. (all rescues)
These 4 bundles of joy are my whole world!
I am constantly finding ways to give more enrichment to all their lives as they enrich mine so much.
I go on courses to learn more about their behaviour, I have fun playing with them and fun training with them.
At the moment I am training my Cat Jaks to take his asthma inhaler by himself which is coming on wonderfully, (see in videos), I also do Cat agility with him in the garden for fun as well as a bit of scent work. My girl cat is just happy with snuggles and isn't much into training. And my bunny has brilliant recall.
I also LOVE taking my dog to training classes, mainly scentwork as I like spending time with her and learning together and not worrying so much about what anyone else is doing.
I also take her to lots of dog training/behaviour workshops, its our little get away time, even though it is work related. I cant spend enough time with her, im obsessed!
I really enjoy the behaviour side of my work, as I get to play detective and figure out whats going on with pets that are struggling for whatever reason. I love finding solutions and helping them and their guardians feel better about things.
I also love the training side of my job as thats the fun stuff, the bonding time, the relationship strengthening, the learning to better communicate with each other, who wouldn't love that?
I am a massive advocate for using only ethical, kind and effective training solutions for all problems for all pets.
I have always loved animals and find them fascinating, I really enjoy learning about their psychology and behaviour. This has led me to starting my own animal behaviour business.
I am really interested in Animal psychology, behaviour and welfare and am always going on courses to enable me to better my knowledge and skills.
I teach classes in Englefield Green, Egham and Thorpe and am recommended by vets and rescue centres.
My mission is to educate pet owners in kind, ethical and effective handling and training of animals using science, compassion, patience and understanding.
I love helping out rescue centres and animal sanctuary’s in any way I can, whether it be volunteering, training, helping with fundraising, assessing dogs or home checking people hoping to adopt or foster.
In winter months I am always on the look out for unwanted/used bedding/food/toys so that I can donate to local animal rescues or sanctuarys, if you have anything you would like to donate, please give me a shout.
I am very lucky to have rescued and live with 2 cats a bunny and a dog. They are all amazing animals and keep me on my toes when it comes to learning about them and their behaviour. These guys are the best teachers. Constant educators.

What is Real Dog Yoga: Real Dog Yoga is a programme of training. It ultimately involves teaching dogs to express and hold specific body postures, expressions and actions that stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and help them to become or remain calm.
The programme has designed an environment for learning which is called option training. We train yoga using this method where dogs have specific areas and communication signals they can use to opt out at any point. Regular breaks are taken following a protocol to ensure that emotional stressors such as frustration do not complicate learning patterns.
“The aim of the Space Dogs Yellow Ribbon Campaign is to have a visible sign that yellow signifies that some dogs would appreciate a little more space, this can mean from both dogs and/or people, yellow is adorned by the dog and/or a yellow ribbon is worn PPGon the lead to signify this…All trainers are checked out for you so you know you will be getting a trainer who understands the needs of a Space Dog and they will use positive/force free training techniques to help build your Space Dogs confidence and deal with the world in a much better way,”

To give each organisation member a stronger voice and mutual support.
To provide a positive antidote to the competitive aspect that has been prevalent within the profession.

The Tellington TTouch is a kind and respectful way of working with animals to help them overcome a variety of health and behavioural issues. It was developed over 30 years ago by Linda Tellington Jones and is now widely used around the world by trainers, shelter workers, vets, physiotherapists, behaviour counsellors, veterinary nurses, competition riders, riding instructors and animal owners.
TTouch recognises an inextricable link between posture and behaviour and uses body work, ground work exercises (where appropriate) and specific equipment to release tension and to promote a feeling of calm and well being. This in turn helps animals develop self confidence and self control and enables them to move beyond their instinctive and, often fearful, responses.
Scentwork UK: The purpose of Scentwork UK is to promote and develop scentwork both as a training activity and as a dog sport
All our Puppy School tutors have been carefully selected for their experience and practical skills with dogs. Our tutors are also chosen to have empathy, respect and concern for people since it is essential that the same reward-based training techniques be extended to the owners of the puppies in the classes as well as the puppies themselves.
Puppy School is proud to be a Practitioner Organisation of the Animal Behaviour Training Council (ABTC) and to uphold its values.
