Welcome to Animal Friend

Welcome to Animal Friend which was set up by me Philippa Short in 1997. I have been besotted with dogs from a very early age. My passion is to help people understand their dogs and to increase their bond with their 4 legged companion.

I am a firm believer in a kind holistic approach to training and well-being of all dogs and I use positive reward based methods to help teach your dog how to be a happy confident member of society. I have a wealth of experience and am highly qualified in many aspects of canine care and training.
