About Philippa - 
Animal Friend Business Owner

My fundamental belief is that all dog training needs to be looked at with a holistic approach for the dog and the human relationship. That means that I take into account the emotional and physical aspects of the dog and the humans involved in order that the training we embark on together is both suitable, fun and achievable for all involved.

While I have a total passion for all things that help us connect with our canine friends, I clearly remember the steep learning curve I had to go on when I got my first rescue dog and found that the methods suggested by others were not always suited to that dog or me. This relationship was the start of my life long journey to understand how we can communicate better with our dogs. Now I am in a position to help them and us have a more fulfilled existence in this crowded world.

So no matter with your level of experience with dogs or difficulties you are experiencing with your dog, I know I can listen to you both and come up with ideas for you to move forward. You may want me to help with your dog not coming when called, or you want to find some fun games to develop your dogs natural instinct and use their brain. Together we can develop a fun programme that makes it easy for you to achieve the goals.

Please just get in touch for a chat and together we can make a plan to help you go forward whatever your needs are.
