I aim to meet the needs of clients wherever they may be and whatever their circumstances may dictate. You can opt for face-to-face training sessions or distance-learning Zoom calls. Either way, you will be given a one to one training session that will be built to meet you and your dog’s needs. One-to-one training means I can focus on the individual needs of you and your dog. You will see results faster, and learn the tools you need to live a happier and more relaxed life together. I have many years of experience including working in shelters, and offer training from puppy basics to managing the adolescent dog and beyond.

Hi, I am Paula – The owner of Paula’s Pet Services (Est.2015) and a graduate of Absolute Dogs Pro Dog Trainer course (AD – PDT), and graduate of Julie Naismith’s Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer Course, (Cert. SAPT) My heart goes out to all of you owners who are struggling with SA. I have worked as a dog walker before dog training and have worked alongside lots of owners to manage SA and enable them an hour or 4 of freedom to nip out and go for meals or go shopping. As a SA Pro Trainer, I would love to help you understand how to help your dog and work towards your independence in managing this for yourselves too. It’s important that you can ask me anything, no question is a stupid question. I want for you to understand the process and trust how it can work for you and your dog. As a force free and fear free trainer, we will work as a team and I’ll be here to support you all the way, in understanding what is going on with your dog and to help them in the best way possible. Separation Anxiety can be a lonely and overwhelming pathway, but you don’t have to do this alone.

Fear and force free R+ dog training. Animal welfare is paramount to me and is the basis of all my courses. That’s why my focus is on building and maintaining a relationship of trust between you and your dog. By looking at body language and recognizing stress signals, you learn what your dog is trying to tell you and when he needs some extra support, for example. Not only does this help the dog to feel safe in its new environment faster, but its confidence in you will grow and you will lay the foundation for good cooperation. My training method is reward-oriented and dog-friendly, according to the latest scientific insights. Research has shown that positively trained dogs are happier and learn faster. This is also good for the dog’s self-confidence and will make it dare to take (more) initiative.
