Pawfect Fit Dog Training
Dogs have been in my life from the age of 3, but I started work as a trainer when my current dog came to live with us.
I am a trainer who understands the emotions linked to your dog’s behaviour. I specialise in 1-2-1 training and small group classes in Paignton, South Devon. My approach to training is relaxed, friendly, fun, and completely force-free. I offer advice, support, and progressive training plans to create a partnership between you and your dog promoting trust and increasing your bond.
We expect a lot from our dogs in terms of ‘acceptable’ behaviour, but they need help and support from us to learn how we would like them to behave and sometimes they also just need the opportunity to be a dog.
I am a member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) and am required to follow the IMDT Code of Ethics and build on my skills and knowledge by completing CPD annually.
