With over 15 years experience of working and training dogs we have experience with a variety of dog breeds and behavioral issues. We understand that each dog is unique, with their own personality, behavior, and learning style. That's why our approach to training is tailored to meet the individual needs of every dog. Whether you're dealing with puppy potty training, leash pulling, reactivity, or just want to strengthen the bond with your canine companion, our team is here to provide guidance, support, and practical solutions.
We understand that the joys of dog ownership come with their fair share of challenges. From mastering basic obedience commands to navigating common behavior issues, we're here to support you every step of the way. Our mission is to provide practical, easy-to-implement strategies that fit seamlessly into your daily routine, helping you raise a well-behaved and well-adjusted dog.
I have always had a love and passion for all animals’ especially dogs. I have been working and volunteering with animals for most of my adult life. I graduated in 2012 with a degree in Animal Behavior and Welfare. In 2019 I founded my own dog training and care company since then we have helped over 500 dogs and owners. To further my education and expertise I recently completed a certification on Canine Nutrition and Raw feeding. Diet and lifestyle are very important to me and my career working with dogs. I am currently studying a Diploma of Canine Behavior Science and Technology through the Companion Animal Science Institute.
I always knew I wanted to work with animals in some form. While working a corporate career in Nebraska USA I volunteered and fostered dogs through a local rescue. This led me to want to learn more about dog behavior. I also adopted 3 shelter dogs of my own with various behavioral issues, seeking out training helped me to get my dogs into balance. After apprenticing with a local dog training company and learning more about dog behavior and training techniques from workshop and online classes, I officially founded my own company and left my corporate career. Wildling Dog Training offered dog boarding, pet sitting, walking, daycare, and training.
In 2021 I co-founded a Structured doggy daycare in Nebraska, USA. This facility was located on 10 aces land. This provided a unique approach to doggy daycare with a time spent in nature, small play groups and training. We started offering group training classes. These included puppy classes, basic classes and Confidence building classes. In 2023 we worked with a local dog shelter to successfully create a training program to improve adoption rates.
At the end of 2023 I moved back to the UK to be closer to my family. I currently reside in London with my partner and two dogs Bolton and Almond. When I’m not working with dogs you can find me hiking with my personal dogs or traveling.
I’m excited to bring Wildling Dog Training to the UK to help more dogs and owners live a life of adventures.
