Do you want to truly understand your dog so you can have the relationship (and good behaviour) you’ve always dreamed of? Without feeling silly, judged or patronised?
Welcome! I’m Gemma, a positive reinforcement based dog trainer who’s as devoted to helping the humans I work with as the dogs we share our lives with.
It’s my goal to help you understand your dog so you can develop an unbreakable bond.
Together we will discover where to focus your efforts with your dog training to get you real-life results that mean something.
I'd love to help you solve your dog training struggles
When you can see the world from your dog's point of view, everything gets better.
All of those niggly problems and behaviours melt away when you have a clear understanding of your dog’s needs, how to meet them, and how to get the absolute best out of your individual dog.
There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to dog training.
My dog training courses adapt to each dog and their human. They’re designed to translate my decades of experience into meaningful, actionable training plans that you can confidently put into practice.
Dog training becomes a zillion times easier when you learn how to communicate with your dog in a way they understand.

What my client's say
She’s not patronising or judgemental and is therefore very approachable.
Gemma is definitely a people person as well as a dog person. She’s always open and generous with her enormous knowledge, so I would recommend her for all kinds of dog training covering all ages and all breeds.
Gemma taught me how to use what Bella is most interested in to motivate her to use choice and to have manners. But most of all, the relationship I have with my Bella is one of love, trust and friendship, and Gemma has shown me how to nurture this above anything else.
Gemma genuinely loves dogs. She sees life from their perspective, she has patience, and for me as a dog owner, she is supportive and not the least patronising and doesn't make me feel silly if I don't understand something. I cannot recommend her more highly.
We are just getting to grips with the weave poles. That we have achieved so much is down to Gemma.
I’ve belonged to 7 amazing collies, bred 15 talented collie puppies over two litters, and fostered 3 troubled collies before finding them their forever homes.
Not to mention how many collies and their owners I’ve helped throughout my 15 years as a dog trainer. I guess you’d say I’m a bit of a fan of the breed!
Border Collies and their crosses can be amazing dogs. But they can also be really hard work too!
That’s why I help collie owners how to teach their dog a brilliant recall so they can enjoy walking anywhere without the worry of them overreacting to joggers/ cyclists or other dogs.
