We are team, you, me and your K9

The relationship between an animal and their owner is a unique connection. Paws and Train helps you understand what your dog is saying. This will continue to build and strengthen your bond. Choice is empowering and will cross into all aspects of training, we always train for reality. Bespoke programmes that can work around your needs, your environment and your dog.

Nervous dogs and nervous owners are my speciality. Let me show you how to gain confidence for yourself, and to help give you clear decision making skills.

At the end of May 2021 my bespoke Paws & Train holiday and training programme will be open. Stay in a separate studio apartment in the Norfolk Broads with your dog and have tailored training sessions under my guidance.

I am so excited to be able to offer this bespoke programme to you.


About Me

Compassion, dedication and Empathy

I have been experiencing life with animals since a young girl, both personally and in my long career with animals. Starting with a Guinea Pig called Nibbles, a pony called Solo, my heart dog Jenson a GSD and currently my fluffbutt Sabre who has taught me more about animal communication than I could ever hope to know. Your dogs communication will be the very first thing we look at together. Understanding what your dog is saying is the key to unlock trust, communication and to enable growth as a team.

I am currently studying with ACE (Animal Centred Education), Canine Confidence (Janet Finlay),Canine Principles, IMDT & IMDTB, Canine School of Science and Trust Centred Learning phew!

I have been assessed, offered and accepted membership with the IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers). I agree and adhere to their code of ethics, which fit inline with my own personal beliefs

I am a member of the Professional Pet Network and their associates, I have built up a trusted network of professionals that I can refer to, including consent based groomers, professional caring dog walkers, Vets and behaviourists.

I am also proud to be an approved Instructor for KAD (Kids Around Dogs) 


At Your Service

Please call for a discussion about what I can do for you and your companion


Basic training skills taught, enhanced and practiced.

If your  K9 needs help with a specific training issue then 1.2.1 training may be a great option for you. Sessions can be done at my secure private venue or a place of your choosing, with personalised plans to fit your pet’s needs and your lifestyle.


Four tailored sessions

Its so exciting, but also can be a little daunting when you decide on adding a Pup to your home. My Discover Puppy Programme of 4 sessions can be taken at any time before your pup is 16 weeks old. We can even do a session before you bring Pup home to discuss all your requirements and how we can help Pup settle and fit in right from the very start. A welcome pack and on completion a certificate to proudly show your friends.

Full support given between the sessions
