Epsom Paws / Puppy and Dog Training

Hi, I am Di, the owner of Epsom Paws, which is a local dog training company dedicated to helping dog parents via puppy classes and 1-1 sessions.

I love working with first time puppy parents, and I’ve helped hundreds of them around Epsom on their journey to build the best relationship with their new family member.

I have always been passionate about animals having grown up surrounded by dogs, cats, hamsters, tortoises and fish.

In 2015 my life truly changed when I convinced my husband to agree to welcome a dog in to our family.

The arrival of our cockapoo, Nina, made me realise that I wanted to qualify as a dog trainer and spend as much time as I could with dogs. Nina used to be a PAT (Pets as Therapy) dog and we regularly visited schools and care homes. Nina and I participate in agility classes too, and as part of this wonderful ‘dog’ community, I have made some fantastic friends.

I am an IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers) and an APDT (Association of Pet Dog Trainers) member. This means that I have passed a rigorous assessment with two of the most important dogs training organisations. I am also DBS checked and insured.

I can’t wait to help you have the best possible experience and relationship with your dog!

Please note that I only utilise positive reinforcement based training methods.

  1. ‘Diana really helped with the early training of my puppy. I found the service inexpensive and the information and training invaluable. Diana is a fantastic trainer who communicates well with clients. She cares about the relationship between the pups and their owners and is so supportive.’

    – Annabel, Tadworth

  2. ‘Diana taught me in 1-2-1 sessions how to best train and control a strong rescue golden retriever, and a second timid rescue labradoodle. Not only does she demonstrate the training techniques, but follows this up with emails showing the techniques. If she is presented with unusual circumstances, she will investigate the best solutions for your dog and advise accordingly. Diana has calm and friendly manner around all dogs, and has a wealth of knowledge in understanding their body language, and how best to respond and to control them in a calm manner.’

    – Caroline, Epsom

  3. ‘We attended puppy classes with Epsom Paws. We found the classes extremely helpful in training our 11 week old puppy. Diana’s classes were informative and fun, she is kind and caring, amazingly helpful and a fantastic teacher. I highly recommend these classes’
