Meet Michele

Hi, I’m Michele, I’ve owned a various assortment of rescue dogs over the past 20+ years and currently participate in scent training and man trailing with my 2 rescue dogs.

My background with dogs include:

  • Worked at a boarding kennel for 2 years
  • Trainee veterinary nurse for 2 years.
  • Worked with Guide Dogs for 28 years.
  • Qualified Guide Dog Trainer and Instructor of 28 years.
  • Insured Dog Trainer

I am studying with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training and I am a member of the Guild of Dog Trainers.

I offer one to one training at your home or in the local area, helping you to understand your dog and give you the skills to bring out the best in you both.

Owning a dog is a fun experience, they’re your best friend. Sometimes, however, problems occur that can leave you and your dog feeling frustrated.

These behaviours can be improved by understanding why your dog is behaving this way, putting structure into your dogs life and being able to communicate with your dog in a positive, effective manner through correct training.

Like us humans, each dog is an individual and I will tailor training to meet the needs of your dog. Time and commitment is needed, there are no quick fixes, but I will be on hand to support and encourage you along the way.

Training should be fun, enjoyable, helping you bond with your dog.

Training sessions are on a one to one basis in your home environment,designed specifically to work on your issues.

Dog and puppy training can cover obedience, over excitement, recall, walking on lead and more. Follow up sessions as necessary.

Prices include a tailor made plan and the facility to call for advice between and after sessions. Prices may vary depending on distance travelled.

The areas I currently cover are Coventry, Leamington, Kenilworth and surrounding areas. Make sure to call to see if I cover your area too.
