Love your dog but not their bad habits? Struggling to fit long enough daily walks into your schedule? Maybe you are having to leave your best friend alone more than you would like during the day or perhaps finding it difficult to get out with your dog due to illness. Whatever your situation, Dastardly Dogs can help.

I am an accredited dog trainer with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers. I can offer dog training services and also walking that incorporates positive reward based training work to address bad habits or behaviour where needed and also work with you to reinforce good behaviours yourself!

I will ensure your dog is either walked alone (if this is your preference), or in a group with no more than two other temperament matched dogs. This will guarantee that your dog receives enough individual attention and stimulation to make the walk a fun and engaging experience.

Through one to one training sessions I can look at all aspects of your dog’s routine, including diet and exercise, to design a realistic and comprehensive plan of action to tackle any problems you may be having.

Big or small, playful or a handful – I am committed to providing the best care for your dog on those occasions when you are busy and seek to create a real bond with the dogs in my care.

Based on the Isle of Wight, I love walking the old railway footpaths, beaches, the downs, parks and forests on the island.
