Welcome to Cambridge Puppy Training!
Here we offer a puppy and dog training service in Cambridge.
Hello! My name is Gail, and I run Cambridge Puppy Training.
I have always had a love of animals, in particular dogs, and decided to progress this by undertaking a BSc (hons) Animal Behaviour degree and an Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour Management. At the same time, I undertook various 'smaller' courses, all serving to increase my knowledge, leading me to ask further questions, and to try and improve my abilitites as a trainer. I have completed courses via Compass Education and Training, The School of Canine Science, COAPE, and practical courses like T-Touch and Companion Dog Training. In amongst all of this, I have also been lucky enough to Guest Lecture for 4th year degree students detailing and demonstrating all manner of topics surrounding learning theory in relation to dog training and behaviour.
I started training my own dogs at CCEG in Impington, and then started offering 1-2-1 home visits, leading to puppy training classes, plus adding some dog walking in too! Since then, I've continued to read, gain knowledge, watch endless videos, read endless articles, and try my hardest to keep up to date with the latest and most relevant scientific research going on around the world regarding canine behaviour. I've worked with many, many puppies of all shapes, sizes and breeds, gaining knowledge you can really only receive through practical hands-on experience. And of course, I fall in love with every single puppy I work with. I love working with dogs, and I love getting to know owners, win win for me! Whilst I work with dogs, the majority of what I do revolves around effective communication with owners, establishing a good relationship and ensuring they understand and feel confident in the training exercises we cover together. The 1-2-1's I do are very much a team effort, not just me, not just you.......it's you, me and your puppy working together to gain the best possible results from your pup.
Now, I offer 1-2-1 puppy training home visits to struggling or overwhelmed new owners, an online puppy training course, dog walking for when you are out or working, and intensive puppy training sessions for extra keen pups! So much variety! Take a look at the 'services' page to see more details of what's on offer!
Got any questions? Get in touch, I could talk about puppies all day!
