My name is Lyndsey Hooper and i am the founder of Pawsome Training and Behaviour. I started Pawsome Training and Behaviour in July of 2019 after deciding that i wanted to embrace my dream of working with dogs. Graduating with an honours degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare at Hartpury University the journey made my passion and love of dogs into a inspirational career goal.
Over the years i have volunteered at training classes, animal shelters and boarding kennels and always had a huge passion for dog behaviour and training. Over time i found my passion grew and my path was clear to have my own business. After completing the Pro Dog Trainer course and completing my Masters Degree (In animal behaviour and welfare) i had the confidence to start my business.
Following this i have become an Approved Dog Trainer with the Dog Training College (DTC-ADT) and a professional member of the pet professional guild (PPG), pet professional network (PPN) and pet industry federation (PIF). We are also expanding into other accreditations in the future to ensure all our clients are at ease that we provide ethical, force free, scientific methodology with your dogs welfare at top priority. We are always expanding our knowledge and skills whereby within the next 5 years we hope to offer various workshops and courses to include;
Canine Body Language
Trick and Agility skills and much more
We are also dedicated to developing knowledge to ensure we are always up to date with new training techniques and behaviour. To view a list of all my relevant and ongoing courses and Continuous development click here
I am a concept-based game dog trainer where all my training is positive reinforcement. I work on training the dog to react differently to outcomes as opposed to during the situation, thereby preparing the dog generally for a variety of situations. I build optimism, confidence, focus, calmness, independence and much more by real-life applicable games that are PROVEN to succeed.
I am willing to take on any behavioural or obedience issue and believe all struggles can be turned into strengths through motivation and perseverance. If you have any additional questions or if you want to discuss any details please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
I look forward to hearing from you 🐾
Best wishes and Stay Safe!
