Puppy Love is a family run business. We are Paul and Donna, a husband and wife team who have owned dogs all our lives. We have owned breeds ranging from Labradors and collies to Springer spaniels and Dobermans.
We have owned German shepherds for the last 20 years, and currently own one Bitch. Leah. She keeps the dogs in line and ensures that they come back when they are called, stops the play if it gets out of line and is fabulous with the puppies. We also have Elmo, Hatter and Loony who are Cardigan Welsh Corgi's. These are of Britain's most vulnerable breeds, so we feel quite privileged to own this intelligent fun loving breed.
Paul started Puppy Love as a Groomer and quickly became known for dealing with the more difficult dogs, this gave him an understanding of how to handle aggressive and uncontrollable dogs.
We have numerous qualifications in Dog Training & Behaviour and have attended courses & seminars with the world renowned John Rogerson at the Northern centre for Canine Behaviour, Dr Ian Dunbar , David Ryan and Nick Thompson who is a Holistic Vet . We have completed a course, with the Academy of Dog Training and Behaviour and we have completed & passed with Merit an Instructor's course with the PDTI.
We have a Professional Diploma in Canine Studies. We are qualified Canine Nutritional advisers and also believe in a Holistic Lifestyle. We believe in using Natural product's rather than chemicals, where we can.
All of our training is based on positive reinforcement (rewards). However each Dog & Owner are treated as individuals and as part of a Team. We will always find a suitable method that work's for you and your Dog. We believe that Owner's & Dog's should have fun whilst training.
We are first aid trained , fully insured, police checked and vet recommended.
We work and have worked with some awesome dogs and including our dogs that live with us and those we have lost, we have learnt so much and never stop learning. We feel that it is a privilege to be dog owners.
