Jenny believes that every dog is unique, and that there is not a 'one size fits all' solution to behavioural issues. Therefore, she takes into account every aspect of a dog's life during training, and sessions are tailored to suit the needs of each individual.
All of her training is based on positive reinforcement. Her techniques are game-based and force-free.
Classes and courses are held in the Bark Park, an enclosed field at Home From Home. This is a fun and stress-free environment which is perfect for learning. Jenny also offers house visits, and accompanied walks if needed.

"Les (my husband) and I asked Home from Home to provide some training for Erin, our five month old German Shepherd puppy, and they introduced us to Jenny.
Erin’s a typical puppy. Lovely nature but a bit lacking in ‘direction’. Jenny is so lovely with Erin and I know she keeps an eye on her for me, when we book her into Home from Home for a day, overnight or weekend.
We needed help with things like Loose lead walking, Recall, Response etc. Jenny always manages to give an insight into how Erin’s mind was working, which made it easy to understand what was going on and why she’s doing these things. It’s also come in useful after our training, as Jenny taught us to put ourselves in Erin’s shoes and apply the same logic, and when we went home, we had her useful ‘homework’ notes to remind us how we had decided to handle things.
Anyone wanting a pleasant, fun and beneficial training course couldn’t ask for more."
