About Vanessa

Having run puppy classes in the Aylesbury area for 6 years, I am now starting a new life in Devon on the edge of gorgeous Exmoor and within easy reach of the North and West Devon coast. The plan is to run dog friendly holidays with bespoke training options alongside 1:2:1 and small group classes.
My special passion is all things puppy. The ethics of responsible breeding, picking the right puppy and the vital early weeks that shape a puppy’s adult life. I am also experienced in the special challenges that adolescent dogs can display and in turning struggles into strengths through games-based learning.
I am a full member of the APDT and ABTC and also a Dynamic Dog Practitioner.
I love my job, and take enormous pleasure in helping and supporting human:puppy/dog partnerships flourish

Class Information

I am not currently running group classes because we are still settling in, but I am happy to help on a 1:2:1 basis and hope to have classes available soon
