Kamila is passionate about helping dogs live in a human world and building the dog–human relationship, and loves working with her dog Alf.
Kamila holds a Canine Coaching Accredited Diploma and is working on her ISCP Diploma in Professional Dog Training to become an accredited ABTC trainer. She delivers our puppy training classes and 1:1 sessions.
Zoe was inspired to become a trainer after adopting Deefer, her rescue dog, who suffers with anxiety.
She has an Advanced Diploma in Canine Applied Canine Behaviour (Level 5) and is also a Separation Anxiety Pro Trainer.
Zoe delivers group puppy classes and 1:1 sessions in the classroom, at your home or in your local park.
Dani delivers online 1:1 sessions and our unique pre-arrival puppy classes. She also hosts the membership classes for those wanting ongoing training.
Dani has studied and applied her learning of puppy and dog training for years. She loves teaching fun activities that positively reinforce good behaviours and help to build trust and happy relationships.
We did the puppy classes, the first 2 stages were with Dani, who was amazing! Our last stage with Leanne who was just as amazing! Both so knowledgeable and helpful. We did a split of Zoom/in Person and both were equally as helpful. We’re now looking into doing further 1-1 session to further Winnie’s skills.

Trainers are knowledgeable and friendly - offering all kinds of tips alongside the official course details. Handouts are given to help keep a track of what you're being taught and classes are small so lots of individual attention. Inky & I have learned lots in a lovely kind atmosphere.
Donna is an amazing trainer. We had one-2-one puppy training sessions with Donna. She helped us understanding our puppy & training her with positive methods. We have a Beagle puppy 3,5 months old now. We are first time dog parents. Donna is a very reassuring, calm, patient & helpful trainer. I highly recommend Donna. Thanks for all your help so far!
We really enjoyed the 2 lots of 4 weekly puppy courses we booked for Scooby our GSD with Abbey Dog Training. I was sceptical at first to be honest, but you ran both courses brilliantly, were attentive to all our silly, repeated questions(!!) and gave us excellent tips and information to help reinforce everything we learned in class so we could practice at home between each week. It was also great to meet other owners and their pups and overall the 8 weeks of training have made a real difference to how we and Scooby now interact. We've come on leaps and bounds as both dog and owners. Many thanks again Lesley for an excellent programme which I would recommend to any new puppy owners.

Thank you so much for your guidance over the past 12 weeks. I was very sceptical about the course before I started as Bully is my first pet and after speaking to people with dogs, they didn’t sound convinced dog training would help. I’m very happy I ignored them and booked as I believe I learned so much that will benefit me and Bully.
