ABOUT ME

Hi I'm Anna, and the owner of Perfect Pawz! Training & Behaviour Practice & I conduct all the training and behaviour options we have - I just think it's far better for owners to know and trust one individual with the entire care of their pet rather than involve several.  I've also strive to provide the very best possible service to my owners, I care that their pet's issues are resolved, being the sole provider of care helps me to ensure a dedicated and assured level of commitment.

I  create and restore a happy dog - owner relationship in a way that's fun, relaxed and informal, involving lots of praise, play, pats and fun.

 

Improving your dog's behaviour isn't about bullying, physical domination or using painful devices - those days are long gone, although sadly there's still plenty of 'trainers' using such methods & that's so sad - who want's to force a dog into submission or 'make' a dog comply, I certainly don't.  For me, nothing is better than watching dogs learn because it's fun and enjoyable to do so.  We've got to learn to listen to and respect our dogs as partners in a relationship & that's what I'm about.

ME &

MY PETS

Perfect Pawz! is of course born from my love of all animals, especially horses and dogs, of which I've had a lot over the years. I've learned that animals teach us an awful lot & that people are far too quick to label & stereotype them in different ways.  If you listen & watch and observe, you will learn so much & I certainly have - from animals many have been so quick to label 'stupid, belligerent, dumb' & even advised to 'get rid of'.  If you have patience and perseverance & listen to what that animal is actually trying to tell you, you will get somewhere.

As you might expect, I have quite a menagerie of animals - I wouldn't want it any other way! Doggy wise, we are real Labrador lovers in my family & are heavily into the breed.  We show at Championship level & have been lucky enough to have several exhibitions at & qualifications for Crufts.
