Welcome to Suppawt !

Hello ! My name is Lily and my passion is to help you and your dog communicate effectively and build a long lasting partnership. I strive to continuously educate myself in the most up to date scientific research. It is still suprising how many trainers are working using old and detrimental methods. It soon shows that where knowledge ends, violence begins.

I aim to upgrade from provisional to full membership with the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors in the near future and am a full member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.

Apdt

Full Member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers​ MAPDT 01320

The APDT UK are proud of the fact that they assess all members according to a strict criteria which ensures they have appropriate skills to teach dog training. They are required to keep their education up to date, and adhere to a Code of Practice. If any member is found to be in contravention of this Code then their membership is withdrawn.

Training dogs has changed a great deal in the last few years. It is no longer necessary, or acceptable, to use harsh methods in training, and the use of gentle, motivational methods are as successful as they are enjoyable to use. Of course, all trainers use slightly different techniques when teaching pet owners to train their own dogs, but all APDT,UK members use methods that are kind, fair and effective.

Jasper

Handed over to the National Animal Welfare Trust at 9 months old. Rehomed and returned twice before I saw him in my first week of my job when he was 3 years old.

What a challenge he was! He would steal things, open doors, jump baby gates, bark and lunge at dogs in the street, was extremely over excited and would not allow you to hold his collar.

Now at 4 years old he is a dog I am immensely proud of. He still gets over excited and jumps up occasionally but we are working on it. Whats a dog without personality!

Brie

Handed in to the National Animal Welfare Trust as a stray. No history on her, underweight and covered in scars and marks. Brie did not cope well in the kennel, barking at anybody that went to greet her. I spent two months working on socialising her in the big wide world before I realised I couldn't leave her when I left.

After settling in Brie was a lot worse than originally thought. She was extremely nervous of people and even nipped someone on the leg. After intensive  conditioning and socialisation, a year later Brie is 80% better than she was but she still has a long way to go.
