The Ipswich Dog Trainer was a dream of mine for many years before I finally took the plunge in 2020.
Starting out alone The Ipswich Dog Trainer now has a fantastic team. Zee runs classes, does obedience training and our 1-2-1 puppy courses. Volunteers assist in classes and we have a great admin team to support in the background.
All trainers are qualified, pet first aid trained and DBS checked, even the volunteers partake in a level 2 accreditation in Understanding Canine Body Language.
All methods are positive and force free meaning no aversive techniques or equipment will ever be used. This is the most up to date, science based training therefore all trainers are committed to Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Seminars, webinars, studies, literature and courses are constantly added to the list and can be requested at any time.
As well as numerous qualifications all trainers are members of the Pet Professional Network. I am a member of the Pet Professional Guild along with a variety of other organisations. RSPCA recommended means we have experience with rescue dogs of all ages and backgrounds as well as puppies from breeders. At the time of writing we are the only dog trainers in Suffolk appved by Trading Standards Suffolk Trusted Trader Scheme.
Customer service and empathy is at the forefront of the business and we understand every dog and every owner is different. The welfare of the dog always come first but we understand the biggest part of our job is working with humans.
Due to this we offer a wide variety of services and there is something suitable for everyone. Any age, any ability, any breed, any skill level.
Our aim is to make training just as much fun for the dog as it is the owner.
“Leanne has been a great help to me over the years after I adopted a Chihuahua cross. With her patience and constant support my dog , Mia, has come on leaps and bounds. Treat training has worked brilliantly and I’m sure her happy disposition reflects in her work. I’ll continue to turn to Leanne for advice in the future.”
