Welcome to Suppawt !

Hello ! My name is Lily I am the founder of Suppawt and Author of 2 'Here to Stay' training books. My journey first started with a BSc Hons in Animal Behaviour followed by working at the National Animal Welfare Trust, as the Dog Trainer and Behaviour Coordinator. My passion is to help you and your dog communicate effectively and build a long lasting partnership.

Suppawt has now branched out from Hertfordshire and now also covers Norwich and Peterborough! We strive to continuously educate our trainers with up to date scientific research. As the dog training industry is not regulated many trainers may be working using old and detrimental methods. It soon shows that where knowledge ends, violence begins.

Meet our trainers below!

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 If any member is found to be in contravention of this Code then their membership is withdrawn.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.
