My role with Dog AID UK is very much about training dogs and their owners and it also involves being very creative, as most of my clients are wheelchair users with limited mobility. At Dog AID we help the clients to train their own pet dogs, to assist them in day to day tasks, in and outside the home. It’s a very rewarding and fun-filled role and I just love my weekly sessions with these clients and their dogs.
The overall assessment and welfare of the dogs under the care of the centre was of paramount importance to me. My role also enabled me to teach a range of classes including Obedience, Puppy Training, One to One training, APDT, UK Good Companion Awards and Fun Agility. It was a fantastic experience and one which motivated me to put all my efforts into building my own dog training business.
I never stop learning about dogs and attend seminars and practical training events to keep up to date. I also share my experiences with other people through the delivery of workshops.
I will always want to learn more about dogs and their interaction with humans. It’s a fascinating subject and getting the relationship right for both dog and owner is what it’s all about for me.
My aim is to make sure everyone is comfortable and gaining the most from their learning experience with me. Excellent customer service is key – it goes hand in hand (or paw in paw!), with my role of dog trainer.
About the training
As the owner of two dogs, both crossbreeds and both very different characters I know how challenging some dogs can be to train! Between us, my family own eighteen dogs. They range in size from a giant Irish Wolfhound down to a little Jack Russell cross. The way we train these dogs has a huge impact on our relationship with them.
As a qualified trainer and a member of the APDT, UK, I work to help people train their dogs and puppies using positive, kind and fair training techniques. I teach owners to ‘think dog’, to watch and learn about their dog’s body language and…….to have fun with their dog!
So, if you want a little bit of help (or a lot), to learn the best ways to train and communicate with your dog or puppy, please get in touch with Peta at the Positive, Effective Training Academy 4 Dogs.My Services Get in touch
Peta is a brilliant and knowledgeable dog trainer. My daughter is training her dog through Dog AID to become her assistance dog. As my daughter has many physical limitations, Peta has put in a lot of thought coming up with ideas that can work for her individual needs and to help build a stronger bond with her dog. Peta is very kind and caring and also puts a lot of fun into training sessions for dog and owner alike. We would recommend Peta with no hesitation.
