Welcome to About Your Dog, your ethical, educational canine care service.
My name is Jade and I am a professional dog trainer working in Hampshire. I am a force-free trainer accredited by the Professional Association of Canine Trainers (PACT) and the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC), the most respected training body in the UK. Prior to my specialist training I studied Animal Welfare & Society at the University of Winchester. It has taken me four years of studying to get to this point, a responsibility I do not take lightly.
I have extensive experience working with all sorts of dogs. I have volunteered for shelters in both the UK and overseas, with highlights including charities in Thailand and Sri Lanka.
It is important to me that your training is not only well-informed and based on science, but low-pressure and fun! During your time with me you can expect to get a bespoke training experience featuring games and challenges to keep you engaged and motivated. More importantly, you will join a community of like-minded people working hard to improve the lives of their dogs!
