Helping you take care of your furry friends!
I’m a Professional dog trainer/behaviourist based in County Durham. I offer one-to-one dog training sessions, group dog training classes and behaviour modification/Obedience and preventative measures to ensure the relationship between you and your dog is the very best it can be. I travel all over the Country and can help train all types of dogs/sizes, using cutting edge proven techniques known as Neuroplasticity (Cortical remapping) from puppies to senior dogs. No job is to big and my methods are taught entirely in a positive reinforcement, reward-based system.
Welcome to our website! With over 10 years of experience, we have been dedicated to serving pets and families in the South East region, and more recently, we have expanded our services to the local area for the past 2 years.
At our organisation, we are passionate about the cognitive development of dogs and helping them overcome negative behaviors. We find immense joy in witnessing the transformation of dogs, as their once problematic behaviours become a thing of the past.
Our approach goes beyond simply training the dogs; we believe in training you, the owner, as well. We understand that the bond between a dog and their owner is crucial, and by equipping you with the necessary knowledge and skills, we empower you to become an effective and confident handler.
We firmly believe that dogs possess an incredible capacity for love, making them incredibly rewarding companions. However, this love also comes with a vulnerability that requires our attention and care. As humans, we have played a role in shaping this vulnerability, and it is our responsibility to ensure that our dogs do not suffer as a result.
With our expertise and dedication, we are committed to providing you and your furry family members with the support and guidance needed to create a harmonious and fulfilling relationship. Together, we can ensure that your dog thrives both mentally and emotionally, leading to a happier and healthier life for everyone involved.

Back to Basics
Age 6 Months+
This 4 week course is a basic training programme. It may be that your dog is new to you, or maybe that initial training has slipped away and you need to re-visit the basics. The course covers all the basics as taught in a puppy class but with more emphasis on focus.
One-to-one dog training means you and your dog will receive your trainer's total attention, meaning faster results than conventional classes and immediate help with any specific problems as well as general obedience. Putting in a good level of foundation obedience will mean your puppy grows up to be a model citizen adult.
Behavioural dog training focuses on modifying a dog's behaviour through positive reinforcement and consistent training techniques. We help you understand the principles of operant conditioning and our training ethos. Our approach emphasizes clear communication, patience, and consistency to teach dogs how to respond to cues, follow commands, and navigate social interactions. Behavioural dog training can address various common behaviour issues such as pulling on the leash, jumping up on people, excessive barking, or aggression. By promoting positive experiences and building a strong bond between the dog and the trainer, behavioural training methods help dogs learn appropriate behaviour while fostering trust and cooperation. Here at Who's Walking Who we assess the dog's behaviour, identify underlying causes for the issues, and develop customized training plans to address them.
Our reactive dog workshop is a training program designed to help dogs that display reactive behaviour. It includes education on the causes of reactivity and understanding triggers. The workshop focuses on desensitisation and counterconditioning techniques to help dogs develop a positive association with their triggers. Owners are taught management techniques and given practical strategies to handle their dog's behaviour. Training exercises and controlled socialisation are included within a secure enviroment. Ongoing support and guidance are provided to owners. Our goal is to empower owners to effectively manage their dog's reactivity and improve their behaviour.
