I work professionally with dogs and their owners in a variety of roles, including my voluntary work as a trainer for Dog AID, UK.
My love of dogs stems from a lifetime spent in their company. The companionship of a dog is far reaching in it's positive effects. After many years of working in my own way to train my dogs, I decided I should gain more formal dog training experience. I was able to do this working as an assistant for a local dog school, shadowing their trainers in classes and on one to one activities. I then started to teach a range of classes for the school and loved the interaction and successes I had with dogs and their owners.
My next task was to gain formal status as a dog trainer and so I worked to achieve membership of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, UK. Successfully completing the APDT assessments was a rewarding experience and I am proud to be member of this association.
All these achievements have opened up many new opportunities and I love the variety of the work that I now do with dogs and their owners .More About Me
About Our 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 a wide range of dog breeds and cross-breeds, including rescue and rehome dogs. They range in character from busy, full on dogs to golden oldies. The way we train these dogs has a huge impact on our relationship with them. Adapting with your dogs as they become older is also a key factor in maintaining that lovely bond with them. Enrichment activities play a big part in our dogs’ lives!!
As a qualified trainer and a member of the APDT, UK and also a trainer with Dog A.I.D. 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.

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.
