Welcome to Paws-ative dog training

Paws-ative dog training was established in 2004 to help build strong human – canine relationships, and to deal with any problems you may be having with your canine friends – and to have some fun in the process!

I  provides training for all ages, sizes and levels of ability so if you’re interested in any of the classes listed, please feel free to contact me.  Classes take place during the day and also in the evenings to allow maximum flexibility.

I have lived and worked with dogs for over 20 years. My career started in 2001 when I did a HND in Animal Science (Behavioural Studies) at DMU Lincoln. I then worked at a behaviour practice in Norfolk for 2 years before moving back to Cornwall and setting up Paws-ative dog training.  As my business grew, I decided to rent a permanent site, which is based just off the A39 Devoran roundabout, between Truro and Falmouth.
I have worked as a trainer for Dog AID for 4 years, helping owners get thier dog qualified as assistance dogs.

I also took at assessment with the IMDT in 2015 to become a fully qualified trainer within thier ethical standards. . IMDT

I continue to further my education in dog training, keeping up to date with new methods.

I work my own dogs in agility, sheep herding and various other exercises.

I only use reward-based training.  This is the best way to ensure a happy and productive relationship with your dog.

All classes are small with a maximum of 5 dogs
