Although my classes are currently due to resume in early June (after maternity leave), there will be restrictions that will need to be followed to ensure that both myself and my clients are kept covid safe.

Therefore, following the governments’ roadmap out of the current lockdown restrictions and guidelines published by the Canine & Feline Sector Group all services will remain covid secure, adhering to all protocols until we reach step 4 (19th of July at the earliest) when legal limits on social contact are lifted (dates are subject to change).

Please be aware that you will be asked to remain socially distanced, wear face coverings and use sanitizer up until then and some restrictions may continue after this date depending on the guidance we are given.

If you have any questions about my services or how we will be covid secure then please feel free to get in touch.

Take care and I look forward to working with you soon. Emma x

Family Dog Training

At times, getting the balance right and achieving safe and happy relationships between children and dogs can be overwhelming.

Calmer Companions will help you gain the balance and calm back into your life using strategies that the whole family can be part of!

Baby & Toddler Focused Sessions

Have a baby on the way? We will help your dog to understand what is needed of them so that you can be worry free when baby arrives.

Before you know it you have a toddler and the dynamics have changed again! We can guide you to a safer and stress-free environment, using our proven strategies.

Hi!  My name’s Emma and I am here to help you create the calm companionship that you, your family AND your dog are craving.

I believe that being calm and kind creates confidence in both dog and owner and this is something that is firmly grounded in the way that I teach.

Using only scientifically proven, reward-based training methods I help owners to nurture safe, mutually happy and trusting relationships between puppy/dog and family members.

I have helped hundreds of families with their dogs build positive relationships with each other or fix broken bonds. For the whole family to live a happy life with your dog it is important to me that the training is fun, informative and accessible to ALL family members and I am here to support you every step of the way.

So, whether you need help with your puppy, your children and dog or your dogs’ behavioral issues, I am here to help with my training classes and specialised programs.

Getting to know your dog and how YOU can guide them is the first step to building a positive relationship … you’ve come to the right place, so let’s get you started! See what we have to offer or contact me today!

I look forward to helping you soon,

Emma x
