Dog Trainer and Responsible Breeder
I love dogs and enjoy working with people who love their dogs. I take great pleasure when I see that moment where the training pays off and the dog and their owner 'click' together. Over the years I have trained many different breeds of dog and given their owners greater skills and confidence
I am qualified dog trainer with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training (CIDBT). This institution is a recognised centre of excellence and is recognised by the Pet Education and Behaviour Council of Great Britain (PETbc), Guild of Dog Trainers and is a Kennel Club Preferred Educational Provider. In addition to this I have completed seminars and learning forums with some of the worlds top trainers.
I am a Kennel Club Assured Breeder and I breed one high quality litter a year. I have a passion for breeding, rearing and training puppies that are physically healthy, mentally balanced and make wonderful companions.
I enjoy working with dogs and families - including children of all ages...
- Helping people to teach their dogs to be calm, well behaved both in public and around the home.
- Helping owners to build strong and lasting bonds with their dogs.
- Solving problems or preventing them from developing.
- Understanding dog communication and signals.
- Developing impulse control and setting boundaries through positive fun interactions with dogs.
Wall of Fame
We have a 12 week old German Shepherd puppy called Ebony and Debbie has been training her (and us!) since the day she came home. Debbie makes training fun and easy and has helped us understand Ebony's needs. Ebony is flourishing and we are astonished at how quickly she's learning. I would recommend Debbie to anyone, particularly those who haven't had a puppy before.
Debbie recently came to see our fur baby Taz. Let’s just say he has a few issues! Debbie recommended various techniques which we are working through with Taz at the moment and progress is definitely being made. Debbie really understood his needs and we were very pleased that we took steps to help him. Our training was gentle as well! Highly recommend Debbie, just like the by line says... Training for both ends of the lead!
Debbie provided great advice and a training plan to tackle problems we were having with our 4 year old dog. This was followed up with a detailed summary covering everything from games to dietary advice. Friendly and enjoyable session and we look forward to further lessons.
Outstanding Service! After our youngest dog had been neutered, our older dog decided to start humping him! Our vet was a bit flumoxed by the problem never having come across it before! After talking to Debbidogs, Debbie came round very promptly and came up with a plan of action. And hey presto, two weeks - later problem solved! We were very impressed with Debbie and would definitely recommend Debbidogs to anyone.
We have a very stubborn dog that used to bite and overreact towards other dogs whilst on the lead, Debbie helped us understand why he acts that way and showed us how to correct his behaviour. We still have some work to do with him but he doesn't react as badly as he used to and seems to be a lot happier now that we understand him more. Thank you Debbie!
First class service... We would highly recommend Debbie to anyone needing some guidance with training their dog. Throughout the five weeks so far, Debbie has worked with us as a family to listen and understand our family life. She has taken time to get to know our puppy meaning that all the training is individualised and really useful. She is clearly very knowledgeable and understands the needs of your puppy/ dog. She explains all aspects of the training so, as an owner, you feel confident and comfortable with exactly what you're doing and why. In 5 weeks our Springer puppy is doing incredibly well and we're very grateful for the support received
I felt that you were so natural with my dogs and took great time listening to me explain everything. My dogs clearly felt very at ease when you visited and even though they barked when you arrived, they didn’t hound you too much like they do when other visitors come. Normally they almost try and fight for attention when anyone comes, but with your calm approach, they seemed very relaxed (more than usual). Thank you so much again!
