About Us

Let me tell you a little about us

 

I’m Julie, a Multi Award Winning Dog and Puppy Training Specialist and my beautiful dobermann is Luka.  We live in King’s Lynn, Norfolk and love getting out and about exploring our countryside.

It all started after a sudden chronic illness forced me to stop working in our local primary school in 2017.  I was struggling and had to learn how to build myself back up.  With support I studied hard and in February 2019 I was ready to help people with their dog training struggles.  I wanted to apply the same principles as working with children and therefore I teach through play.

When we brought Luka into our home in 2018 he was a boisterous biting, nipping eating machine!  The kids started to avoid him because he would grab at their clothes, ankles and hands.  They were terrified of this little monster.  He wouldn’t sleep and when he did he woke up in the night and not go back to bed.  Luka didn’t like his crate and we couldn’t leave him alone because he would bark and howl.  We were all exhausted and that didn’t include the walking nightmares!  

Finding our way to a better relationship  

I fell into dog training by accident really, I wanted to help Luka adjust and feel comfortable. I knew that I didn’t want training that I had previously had with my other dogs.  There didn’t seem to be any dog trainers in our area that provided force free training then, therefore I had to be resourceful and creative.  With my background working with children under six I found game based training and we never looked back.  Gradually we built a great relationship with Luka and now he is seven years old we are really happy that we found a way through those difficult early years.  

 I know what it feels like to be socially isolated with a dog that can’t walk well on a lead and has no recall.  We now know that puppy blues is real and I have experienced a lot of struggles with Luka and I know how it affects the whole family.  I needed someone to listen to me and understand what I was going through so I want you to know that I am here to listen to you.

 

How can I help you?

My aim is to coach you so that you can effectively train your dog or puppy yourselves.  I would like you to experience the joy that comes with training them through play and see how your relationship starts to strengthen.  Training can take time but it is well worth the effort that you put into it and my job is to show you how to do this effectively using kind, ethical and force free training techniques.  Coaching and guiding you on a one to one basis with game based training methods.

Julie has been a delight to work with. Our 4 month old puppy has learnt so much and is continuing to develop. Julie is patient and is very good at what she does (she knows her stuff) would definitely recommend for dog training to family and friends.

Julie has been absolutely excellent with all the training for my puppy. The sessions were on a weekly basis which was extremely easy to understand and straightforward that ensured amazing results. Julie is highly proficient and professional. I would have no hesitation in referring anyone to her, however you must be prepared to put in the work in order to see the results!

Julie has really helped us for the past 5 weeks with training, confidence and separation anxiety with our 10 week old puppy. She came to our home weekly and sent us lots of helpful tools and advice to help us being new puppy parents. It’s really helped us and made things a lot easier for us and for Marty. Thank you!
