Debbie supports pet owners at all stages of their pet ownership. She specialises in dog training but can also help with logistical problems, vet transport, dog walking, home boarding, and many other pet care needs.

Debbie has had dogs for over 40 years. She has a particular passion for helping dog owners understand their dog’s behaviour and teaches them to use positive reinforcement tools to effect transformation. Her training ethos is to positively train both the dog and its owner at the same time!

Debbie has been an instructor at various dog training clubs over many years and runs her own puppy and adult dog training classes in group sessions, and can also work one-to-one when required.

Debbie is a Kennel Club Approved Examiner for the Good Citizen Dog Scheme at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels; she is a KC Assured Breeder, a Therapy Dogs Nationwide Assessor and is currently working towards KCAI accreditation. Debbie has also been accredited with a five-star Wiltshire Council Home Boarding License.

Debbie shows her own dogs at Championship dog shows and has won several 1st places in Briard classes at Crufts; she also trains all her dogs to do agility at competition level.

Debbie has fostered many dogs addressing basic behaviour prior to them moving into their new homes.
