Hi, I’m Fiona - the owner of Dogknows Richmond.
Since joining Dogknows I’ve worked with dogs of all size, age & temperament, using my training from the all-encompassing Dogknows Dog Care & Everyday Training program and I continue to learn & update my knowledge in the latest training techniques through study and regularly attending workshops and seminars.
I feel incredibly lucky to work in an industry that I‘m so passionate about and I particularly love working with clients who are bringing a new puppy into their lives and helping them through those early few months - dealing with everything from house training, basic commands and recall, to that difficult adolescent phase. Using reward-based training I can help you understand how a dog learns and how to stop those unwanted behaviours, to make sure your pup grows up to be a great family pet.
Along with my experience working in the industry and regular training with the Dogknows Academy, I have completed several courses including: Diploma in Canine Care, Welfare & Behaviour; Canine First Aid; Sarah Whitehead's Think Dog - Canine Body Language and Facial Expression; Dog Law; plus I am a member of renowned dog trainer & behaviourist Dr Ian Dunbar’s Dog Training Academy. I have ongoing support and personal coaching from Bobs Broadbent, the founder of Dogknows, and I am extremely proud to be a registered Dog Training Instructor with the ABTC (Animal Behaviour & Training Council).
I only ever use kind, force-free handling
techniques as this helps to build a strong bond of trust with the dogs in my care. I specialise in puppy training, creating a bespoke package to help train your pup during those all-important early months.
A puppy’s life is a learning
opportunity which is why we include essential training as part our specially designed puppy care services
