Smarty Paws Dog Training
I teach owners how to train their dogs to be well-behaved, well-trained and fun to be around, without using negative or harsh methods.
I am a dog trainer and behaviourist based on the North Coast of Northern Ireland.
I offer exceptional 1-2-1 modern dog training with an emphasis on proven, ethical and science based teaching methods. I am fully qualified and with years of experience, and an accredited member of The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT), The Pet Professional Guild, supporting member of International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and a qualified Mantrailing Global instructor.
All my training is kindness led and reward based and I empower owners with the knowledge and skillset to achieve the calm and playful behaviours you want from your dog.
I train dogs (and owners) with kind, uncomplicated, fun and scientifically based training, which makes sure both you and your dog enjoy it! I believe that everyone in a household should know how to care and train a dog so I include all ages and experiences in a safe, purpose built environment. And then I help you to transfer your newly learnt skills into real life.
I trained IT for over 25 years in a corporate world before my love of dogs took me a different route! So I know that training effectively means finding the simplest, fun, and clear solution to give you and your dog lots of opportunity to learn new behaviours and techniques.
I can cover most of Northern Ireland, but particularly the North Coast, County Derry/Londonderry, County Down. Get in touch if you would like to know if I cover your area!
