ABOUT CLAIRE DOWNIE
Hi, I’m Claire!
With several years of experience working at a busy dog daycare, I have gained extensive expertise in caring for and training various breeds of dogs. Alongside now working for myself, I now volunteer with the charity Dog A.I.D (Assistance In Disability), helping people with a range of conditions to train their dogs to help them do everyday tasks.
If you’re looking for you dog to be happy, to thrive and to create a bond of friendship and trust with them then you have come to the right place!
The bond that people and dogs can have is truly magical. But...
Right now, you might feel completely lost. You want the absolute best for your dog, but you don't know how to begin.
Conflicting and confusing advice and opinions have left you bewildered, upset and unsure what to do.
Imagine if instead, you knew exactly what to do in any situation, had the skills to teach your dog and were able to give your dog the life they deserve.I’m here to help you.
