Hello, I’m Hannah!
My mission is to help other people understand their dog and to make their life as ‘Pawsome’ as possible!
Scooby was my childhood best friend, I taught him all sorts of tricks, our bond was undeniable and just increased my passion for dogs and everything dog related.
As well as Scooby, my parents had to contend with having a small farm in our home! We had rabbits, hamsters, horses, fish, mice and cats. But dogs were always my number one love.
I spent all my spare time with animals and helped out at our local rescues and worked with the local veterinary practise.
Fast forward a fair few years … Kobie arrives
I went away to university to study Criminology and Human Psychology. Whilst away for three years it made me miss being around animals.
Shortly after this Kobie, an 8 week old Cocker Spaniel joined my life.
Kobie had challenges. I soon realised that he wasn’t comfortable in social situations, he barked at everything and he hated being alone. He was very scared. I remember looking at Google for how to help him and feeling completely overwhelmed and confused by the mass of information and conflicting advice. There were no consistent answers, and that was when I realised…
“There’s too much information out there! I was overwhelmed and in a worse place than I was before”
Developing my knowledge
After facing difficulties with Kobie I started using my knowledge from my Degree, there are some similarities between human and dog behaviour. I read more and more about dog behaviour, and I got to know amazing local trainers and behaviourists, and started helping them out in their classes.
It was during one workshop with some top trainers who were on TV at the time that I realised I wanted to do this as a career. So I took up training and qualified with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers, after passing a very rigorous assessment to the highest level.
I also qualified with Absolute Dogs. In my training I use a games based approach because fun is fun…damental to your training.
We will help your dog by playing games which will turn your struggles into your strengths, and skyrocket your relationship.
Since then I have done so many more courses and I’m constantly improving my knowledge, so when you work with me you’re getting access to the most up to date research out there.
Why I started the company
I know how it feels for your dog to bark and lunge at another dog or person, I know how it feels to be judged as an owner, I know how it feels to think I will never be able to let my dog off the lead, I know how it feels to be completely confused and overwhelmed with your new puppy.
And I know how it feels to think you’re doing it all wrong.
Thanks to my expertise I also know how to help you and improve things. Kobie can enjoy off lead runs now, he can be left alone happily, he can come to the pub and settle, he no longer reacts to people or dogs instead plays with them. He can still react to cyclists which is a work in progress. Training often is, you may have ups and downs but I will be there to support you.
When you work with me, I will not judge you, I will not reprimand you, I will support you,I will not tell you off.
I will celebrate your achievements, I will be there as a shoulder to cry on if you need to.
I am here for you because I know how you feel.
So if you want to enjoy your walks, or just give your new puppy the best start in life please get in touch for your free 15 minute chat to find out how I can help you and your dog reach your full pawtential.

“Had yet another fantastic session with Hannah. We were a bit sceptical about doing it via zoom but it was fantastic!
Chip has a history of guarding items and occasionally swallowing them.
By working alongside Hannah, we have massively reduced these issues through the advice & tools she has given us.
We were seriously considering rehoming Chip few months ago but now this thought couldn’t be further from our minds!
Thank goodness we found Hannah so she could teach us how to help Chip to be a happy spaniel and for us to be less anxious spaniel owners!”
