Viv was absolutely brilliant. She put myself and my dog at ease straightaway. She really listened to everything I was telling her about my dog’s past experiences etc and you could tell she genuinely cared. We can’t wait for our next lesson! I would 100% recommend Viv as a first class dog trainer and a genuinely lovely person.

Viv is simply fantastic! Viv has been working with our new puppy on a 1:1 basis setting the foundations for fun and adventures to come. We have had dogs before and made many mistakes resulting in trying to unpick bad behaviours further down the line. Viv has given us lots of guidance and some great advice , all delivered without any judgement ! One of the really great things about Viv is that she totally understands things from the dogs perspective and she implements current and up to date behavioural techniques in everything she does. The icing on the cake is that she is a genuinely lovely person and Tess is her latest super fan! We are going to continue now with a puppy foundation class and our intention is to commit to getting it right this time!

I first met Viv when I took Zeus to puppy classes. I found these classes very helpful for the beginning of his training journey. I have since returned for 1-1 session to help with his nerves around meeting new people, traffic and pulling on his lead whilst walking. Again, Viv has helped tremendously and Zeus is showing good progress and becoming a more confident dog. I can't thank Viv enough for what she has done with Zeus, but most of all for giving me confidence in knowing I'm doing a good job with his training. Viv is always there for advice and support :) Thank you from Angie and Zeus xx

Modern, Science Based Dog Training & Me

I came to dog training after a change of family circumstances led me to fulfilling a lifelong dream of working with dogs.  In 2011 I brought home a 10 week old black Labrador puppy and it was largely through Rango that our walks in Windsor Great Park turned into a small business venture (Walkies In Windsor). Our daily walks turned into group walks and I was soon working and walking with many dogs. From this grew my fascination with dog behaviour.  It is this fascination that has led me to to pursue a life as a trainer of dogs but also their people. My own training journey with Rango led me to realise that it is not only what we teach our dogs that is important, but how we teach them. 

A move to Norfolk in 2014 led me to continue to develop my training skills through practical work and also study and it was this learning about the science behind training and how dogs learn that has led me to commit to using only humane, science based, positive reinforcement techniques both in my work and with my own dogs. 

I am committed to the use of ethical, science based and force free training methods as reflected in my Certification by the Association of INTODogs, Accreditation by the Pet Professional Accreditation Board (PCT-A) and full membership of the Pet Professional Guild, ICAN, ISAP and INTODogs.

I am committed to the use of modern, positive reinforcement techniques informed by science and rooted in compassion and understanding.

I offer a range of training services, from 
1-1 puppy training where I teach owners how to train their puppy using kind, science based training techniques.  I hold a Certificate in Puppy Training (Distinction) alongside extensive practical experience.

Whether you are looking to teach your dog how to walk nicely on lead, recall training, general obedience or behavioural concerns, such as reactivity on lead, or looking to build your rescue or nervous dog’s confidence, I can help.  

I am a Canine Hoopers World Instructor, offering 1-1 and group Hoopers classes. A fun sport for dogs of all ages.  Complete beginners welcome!

 I offer a residential training service for owners who do not have the time required to invest in training. There is an important handover session where you will learn how to maintain your dog’s training. Ongoing training support is available. 

I am a Licensed Instructor and Assessor for the Pet Dog Ambassador Program, coaching people and their dogs through this 5 step credentialing program (from puppy award to level 5 champion)

I actively continue my education by keeping up to date with my learning about canine behaviour and training through accredited courses, attending professional webinars and seminars. In 2020 I gained Accreditation by PPAB as a Professional Canine Trainer. 

If you are concerned about any aspect of your dog’s behaviour or training, please get in touch.

Proud to be able to display the UK Dog Behaviour & Training Charter logo.
