Penny is a full-time behaviour practitioner and trainer with 10 years’ experience handling and training a variety of different breeds.

Penny is a Master Professional Trainer with The Guild of Dog Trainers. She has accreditations with The Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training which incorporate canine behaviour, psychology, science, dog law, aggression, and other common behaviour issues. She is a qualified UK Sniffer Dogs scent work instructor and enjoys working with both canines and humans, which is essential in this field!

Her knowledge will help you to understand your dog’s behaviours and the reasoning behind them, clearly communicating appropriate handling skills in order to manage and modify any unwanted behaviours. She is passionate about what she does and takes opportunities as they arise to further her knowledge in an industry of constant learning. By using modern techniques and positive reinforcement wherever possible, a balanced healthy relationship between dog and owner can be achieved.

Penny can be with you from the very beginning of your training journey, offering pre-puppy purchase advice and ‘new puppy packages’ from the age of 8 weeks providing the solid foundations required for further training. Penny offers a wide range of training opportunities in various locations which include 1-2-1 bespoke obedience and pet gundog training, UK Sniffer Dogs scent work workshops and classes which complement the majority of behaviour reformation cases Clients do have the opportunity to train in small groups which are created following an in-depth behaviour and temperament assessment. Penny aims to build handlers confidence and improve their skills in many different situations and environments.

Breeds that Penny has worked particularly closely with are retrievers and spaniels. She tailors behaviour modification and training programmes to work with, rather than against the traits traditionally associated with these two breeds. She owns a team of Labradors that work in the shooting field, she trains and competes alongside some of the very best instructors and handlers in the country.
