Jennifer provides dog training and behavioural consultation to the public and charity organisations.  She has a strong focus on positive reinforcement techniques and a warm, friendly approach to dog training.  Currently providing puppy socialisation classes just outside Shaftesbury and behavioural consultation and dog training advice in the following areas: Shaftesbury, Gillingham, Mere, Blandford, Sturminster Newton and surrounding villages.


After moving around from place to place growing up, I have settled on the boarder of Wiltshire and Dorset. I have always loved animals and spent 10 years working in practise as a Veterinary nurse. I then furthered my education in dog behaviour and training.

With a passion for dogs, and the benefit of positive and reward based training methods, I love to build the bond between dog and owner. Starting with puppies socialisation and training, and moving up through the ages we can work through training issues and behaviour problems.


Jennifer is an approved trainer for VETERANS WITH DOGS, a charity organisation training Assistance Dogs to enhance quality of life for British Veterans with invisible injuries.

VETERANS WITH DOGS mission is to support former members of the British Armed Forces, whose psychological or physical wellbeing may have suffered due to difficult past experiences and challenging life circumstances, via engagement with their dogs.

If you would like to find out more about the charity please visit their website here or click the logo. 






Learning about every day occurrences, meeting and greeting and getting out and about should be enjoyable for your dog. 

If not, slow down! 


Sometimes we need a helping hand to learn the skills of basic training. Thats ok! Not all dogs learn in the same way.

Using positive reward based methods, you can build your bond and move forward with a happier dog and a happier you!


Did your dog miss out on socialisation? Have a bad experience which has effected its behaviour? Do you have a rescue dog who needs help readjusting to a new life?

Consultations are designed to address individual needs and help put a plan in place to move forward.
