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.
