Helping you build a fantastic relationship with your dog.

I am a positive reinforcement dog trainer and behaviourist.

I have worked with traumatised and shut down rescue dogs for many years. Rehabilitating them to become happy pet dogs.

I only use scientifically proven, force free methods. I have years of experience in running puppy and dog training classes, creating a relaxed and welcoming environment.

I am well qualified and work with reactive dogs that show aggression and fear towards other dogs and people, very scared dogs, those with separation anxiety and many other behavioural problems.

I have 13 dogs of my own, 11 of which are rescues. I am based in Bridgend and also cover the Cardiff and Swansea areas.

I also own and run a foster based dog rescue called Barney's Small Breed Rescue.

Start your puppy with the best from the very beginning. Good life skills are essential to becoming a well balanced dog. Prior to classes, this can be started in the home.

One to one Behaviour Consultations

For any problem behaviour issue.

If your dog needs help with a specific behavioral issue, Behaviour Consulting with Gentle Paws Professional Dog Training and Behaviour, may be a great option for you.

Bespoke packages are available.

Reactive Dog assessments and training.

Full assessment of reactive dogs,that show aggression towards humans and/or other dogs. A full assessment / training plan and ongoing support given. 

It can be incredibly stressful owning a reactive dog and can feel quite isolating. I build confidence in the owners management and abilities whilst a full behaviour training programme is put into place. 

All size dogs can become reactive for a variety of reasons.

My facilities include a converted training barn and two large fields, your dog can work in a controlled environment around my trained stooge dogs, when ready.

Initial assessment and behaviour plan costs £90 2 hours.

Tailor made packages once assessed.

An assessment gives me the opportunity to look at the emotions that are driving your dogs behaviour. Getting as much history as possible and gaining knowledge of previous behaviour, I can support both you and your dog moving forward.
