"Here to help you have fun and build a special friendship with your dog, based on fun and foundations!"
Avril Young, PCT-A
Thank you for visiting my website! How exciting that you are looking for help
to train your dog – no matter what age or stage!
My name is Avril and I hold my PCT-A accreditation through the Pet Professional Accreditation Board and am a full training member of a number of organisations renowned for their "do no harm" ethics. This means I am held accountable for both theoretical and practical skills and commit to continual personal development throughout each year.
Puppies are my passion and I am here to help you through the pupodile stage. Together we will introduce the foundation skills to help you and puppy learn and grow together.
Teenagers need that little extra help and support as they go through the next phase of their learning, and I love nothing better than working with dogs and their noses!
Scentwork and mantrailing are sports that I have practiced and competed in with my Ridgeback, Mika, and her family before her, and we use these skills not only for fun, but to help dogs who need that little extra support and confidence.
I provide various training options (classes and 121) for all the above as well as loose lead walking, recall, jumping up, enrichment games, tricks and more!
To give you the foundation skills to help you build trust and understanding between you, your family and your puppy.
My teaching is based on fun and friendship and we build foundations, foundations, foundations – so you and your family can grow and learn together with your canine friend, wherever your journey takes you!
