About Me

Positive Learning that last's a lifetime!

Hello and welcome! I'm Paul, a passionate and IMDT Accredited Dog Trainer with a journey that's been anything but ordinary. After spending 31 years as a high-level manager in retail, a personal experience with my own dog led me down a path I never expected but have found incredibly fulfilling. My furry friend's encounters with fear and aggression opened my eyes to the intricate world of canine behavior and training. This sparked a quest for knowledge that turned into a calling.

My Journey into Dog Training

It all started with a desire to understand and help my dog overcome his fears. Delving into the world of dog psychology and behavior, I attended a life-changing seminar with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) and haven't looked back since. Fast forward to today, I've completed over 32 courses with the IMDT, alongside certifications through the Grisha Stewart Academy and studies with Susan Garrett. Currently, I'm enhancing my expertise further with a Level 4 qualification in Understanding and Working with Canine Behaviour.

Services That Speak to Every Dog and Guardian

From the playful exuberance of puppies to the unique challenges of adolescent dogs, my services cover a broad spectrum: puppy training, adolescent dog classes, recall masterclasses, loose-lead masterclasses, and personalized 1:2:1 training sessions. Each offering is tailored to foster understanding, communication, and a joyful bond between you and your canine companion.

A Philosophy Rooted in Kindness

At the heart of my approach is positive reinforcement, guided by the L.I.F.E. model of animal training. I believe in teaching and guiding with no harm, fear, or pain—only respect, patience, and love. It's not just about commands and obedience; it's about building a relationship that enriches both your lives.

Why I Love What I Do

There's nothing more rewarding than seeing the transformation in the relationship between a guardian and their dog. Witnessing the joy, trust, and bond grow through the methods I teach is the greatest reward. My goal? To show that understanding, compassion, and positive reinforcement are the keys to a happy, healthy canine-human relationship.

Beyond the Leash

When I'm not busy transforming dog-human relationships, I stay active and keep fit, lose myself in a good book, and explore the great outdoors on walks that are as much for my soul as they are for my body.
