Qualified as a dog trainer in 2012 with the Academy of Dog Training and Behaviour. She holds a City and Guild PTLLS qualification in teaching for the Life Long Learning Sector and has over 10 years teaching experience covering a wealth of subjects and ages.
Emma's experience enables her to accurately read both the dog and the human behaviour and the psychology behind the partnership. These observational skills and her quick thinking will often give fast results to difficult situations.
Emma’s reputation is built not only on her accurate natural ability to read canine and human psychology, but on her friendly professional ethic approach to work. She will quite simply walk you through the process of altering or training your dogs behaviours in order to help them become balanced dogs in the community, and give them the “Essential Canine Life Skills” TM she is so passionate in achieving.
Emma has achieved phenomenal agility success with all her dogs competing and achieving podium successes at Crufts, Discover Dogs and her two poodle crosses have been chosen to represent British Teams on 4 separate occasions. The pinnacle of Kipps career was running at the International Horse of the Year Show at Excel in the Christmas of 2021.
Amanda has owned dogs all her life and seriously started training 10 years ago with her rescue dog Jessie.
Due to Jessie's nature they both developed a partnership in many different canine activities. This really helped Jessie's focus and she became a happy dog.. They competed in both heel work to music and competition obedience and is now working through her National Canine Trick Star Awards.
She has started successfully competing in agility with her rescue dog Banjo.
For the last 7 years Amanda has successfully run Pads and Paws, a dog walking and boarding company with an excellent local reputation.
Amanda's expertise lays with reading rescue dogs and creating fun in our advanced classes.

Stacey has competed at Discover Dogs and Crufts every year since 2016. She was placed 4th in the final of YKC Agility Dog of the Year.
She represented Junior Team GB with her Mum's dog Herbie in Switzerland 2019 and is currently training a new Sprocker Spaniel called Tillie who is showing amazing potential.

Emma has owned and lived with dogs all her life ranging from Rottweilers, German Shepherd’s to West Highland Terriers.
Having lost her American Bulldog Freddie to old age in 2019, she now has beautiful Rukiya who shares many adventures with her. They have explored many pursuits together, trying agility before finding they loved to learn tricks and obedience. One of their favourite things to do besides tricks is go camping, explore the countryside and relaxing at local coffee shops.
Emma is currently studying a Compass Diploma in Dog Behaviour and Training and also volunteers at Ashingdon Heights Boarding Kennels to keep her hands on experience up to date.
