Head Trainer - Naomi
I run PerfectPups and I have gained experience of dog training through helping other trainers as a volunteer. I have also successfully gained a BSc (Hons) in Animal Behaviour and Welfare degree from Harper Adams University, Shropshire, as well as gaining my PDTI (Pet Dog Training Instructors) Practical Instructing Skills Introductory award with Excellence.
During my placement year for my degree, I worked at the RSPCA, where I walked, groomed and trained many different ages and breeds of dogs as well as working closely with cats and small furries such as Rabbits. I have completed many other animal based work placements.
I own a Working Sheepdog, and I enjoy doing trick training with him. I have been a Puppy Parent for Canine Partners, and a puppy walker for Guide Dogs where I helped to train and socialise the puppies we looked after, from 8 weeks - 18 months old, giving them the best chance in life and learning how to become an aid for someone living with a disability.

"I’m a passionate dog lover and have been working with dogs for 2 years. I have experience working in dog kennels and assessing dog behaviour. I’m now applying this experience to the obedience training classes with Naomi and I also join her during 1-2-1 sessions. In particular I have a lot of experience with Staffordshire Bull Terriers and dogs who need more patience and TLC."
