About Me

My name is Sheila. I am based just outside Stockbridge in Hampshire. I provide positive up to date modern and ethical dog training with the emphasis on helping you to help your dog. I will show you how to communicate better with your dog and build a strong bond using positive reinforcement as well as innovative based force-free methods that are fun for both dogs and handlers!
I have been involved with training dogs for most of my life and have a wealth of experience with a huge variety of breeds and types. Many of my own dogs have been from rescue centres or dogs that need a new home for whatever reason – this has given me extensive experience dealing with many different behavioural and training issues – some more challenging than others!
I offer various training options including home consultations, one to one, and group classes. Training is mainly held outdoors in my dedicated training field in Kings Somborne with an indoor venue available for evening sessions or for inclement weather conditions! Along with my training credentials, I also have a 5-star rating from Test Valley council for Home Boarding and Day care which allows me to offer both residential and day training from my home.
Whether you need help with a new puppy joining the family, are struggling with an older dog with issues or just want to learn new skills with your dog – get in touch by email, Facebook or call for a free, no obligation chat.
