About Penaran

I have been passionate about animals and their welfare all my life. I grew up with Jack Russell Terriers and have owned guinea pigs, hamsters, mice and house rabbits. I live with my husband, two children, and rescue Bassett Hound in Bounds Green, North London. I gave up a PR career with animal welfare charities to work in a more hands-on way with animals through running Puppy School classes covering Crouch End, Hornsey, East Finchley, Muswell Hill, Temple Fortune and surrounding areas, and to work as a Pet Behaviour Counsellor, which I have done for almost 20 years now. I hold the Post-Graduate Diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour Counselling from Southampton University and have been a full member of the highly regarded Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors for more than 15 years. I am accredited by the Animal Behaviour Training Council as both a trainer and a behaviourist.

With first-hand experience of owning many rescue dogs, not adequately socialised or trained at all when young, who who have had really bad starts in life, I have direct experience of how important it is to help your puppy learn how to be a well behaved family member, and adjust to the noise and commotion of urban life; the sights, sounds, and unfamiliar dogs and people they will meet on a daily basis. Classes are deliberately kept small so I can really focus on the attendees and help them through this tricky but crucial stage of a pup's life.

Class Information

My classes are held in Muswell Hill on Monday evenings, Islington on Tuesdays, and Temple Fortune on Weds evenings. Please contact my PA jayne@petshrink.co.uk for further information and to book a place. or you can book directly via the “book now” button.
