Richmond Dog Care

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 & BehaviourCanine 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.

The Dogknows
difference

I am particularly keen to enhance the lives of the dogs in my care whether they are a new puppy just starting out in the world, an energetic adult or a golden oldie who just enjoys a gentle stroll in the park.

Because our policy is to take on regular clients who need dog care at least three times each week, it is possible to get to know each dog really well which means we understand their individual characters and traits so we can provide the best possible service for them and give absolute confidence for you.

If you want more for your dog, why not test out the difference Dogknows can make?


What our customers say

  • Starting with Dogknows couldn't have been an easier and more reassuring time. Fiona gave her expertise to cater to my dog, who can be a little bit of an adventurer to say the least! January 2017
  • Fiona is brilliant. She is extremely professional and we trust her implicitly with our cockapoo. When we met Fiona she came across really well and Lexie instantly took to her. We can really rely on Fiona and I highly recommend her dog walking services! Natasha Grainger
