It's a Dog's Life - Dog Training

Dog and Puppy Training in Chelmsford, Basildon, Brentwood and across all of Essex

professional dog trainer and behaviourist based in Chelmsford, covering the whole of Essex

modern, kind and effective dog training methods

Thank you for visiting our site. I’m Penny, a dog behaviour specialist, and like many of us, have been around dogs all my life and simply couldn't envisage life without them.


When I began dog training in the Eighties, it was a world of harsh training methods, choke chains and Barbara Woodhouse ruled the roost.


Thankfully today good dog trainers and behaviourists  (including me!) use modern, kind methods, based on positive reinforcement not punishment. Resulting in a fantastic relationship with your best friend based on trust and mutual respect; not fear.


I cover Chelmsford, Basildon, Brentwood, Braintree and all Essex.

I provide one to one  bespoke coaching, tailored to meet the needs of you, your family and dog. I use clicker training - a quick, fun and extremely effective training method.


Here are some of the services I offer for you and the dog in your life:


For your peace of mind I have a Canine First Aid qualification, Full Police Disclosure Certificate and we also have specialist insurance for Custody, Care and Control of your dog.

Wow! What a transformation in our 16 week Cockerpoo, Macy. No more nipping, biting or jumping up and answers and comes to her name. Penny 'the doggie whisperer' is absolutely amazing. Brilliant is an understatement, incredibly knowledgeable and totally clever lady! Thank you!

Penny helped a lot with training us and our two, four year old, whippets. Her friendly and enthusiastic ways have already made walking the dogs calm and enjoyable - rather than being pulled from tree to tree and barking at other dogs. We highly recommend Penny - she really knows her stuff.
