  • Ensuring your puppy or dog acquires the correct socialisation skills with people and other dogs
  • Helping you through the early days of puppyhood with issues such as house training, play biting, avoiding separation anxiety

Services offered

One-to-one training and behavioural advice

  • Practical training and behavioural advice for puppies and adult dogs with a training programme specifically tailored to you, your family and your dogs
  • Please see more detailed information on the  'One-to-One' page or call me for a no-obligation chat about your dogs' training and behavioural needs

Group training classes for puppies and adult dogs

  • Outdoor classes ensure solid foundations of correct behaviour in a challenging outdoor environment
  • A more realistic and effective training environment than indoor classes
  • Dogs are more relaxed due to the outdoor, natural training environment (so removing the stress for both owners and dogs)
  • Adult dogs are welcome in classes but please note I cannot deal with any aggression issues in classes - please see one to one page
  • Please see ‘Classes’ page or call me for more information

Charitable support

Co-operative Canines is proud to be a kennel sponsor of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, a Member of Home Counties Boxer Welfare, and a supporter of many other animal-related charities – please see ‘Links’ page. 

I am also involved with Canine Partners, a charity which homes their trained assistance dogs with disabled people and who now have a training hub in Surrey.  During 2017 - 2018 I was a  'Puppy Parent', which involved raising one of their beautiful Labrador x Golden Retriever puppies from 8 weeks to 15 months old, when she was then ready to successfully move into her new challenge of advanced training.  I continue to be involved in shorter-term fostering a variety of puppies and adolescent dogs for Canine Partners.   Please see the  'Links' page for more information and ways in which you can help.
