WELCOME TO PEOPLE & DOGS

People and Dogs was set up in 1994 and is owned and run by professional dog trainer and dog behaviour consultant Victoria Cooper.

My passion for animals started when I was very young, training dogs and horses on the family farm. Then I went back to studying Dog Training and Behaviour over the last 25 years. I have studied extensively and gained a wealth of specialist knowledge, expertise and training skills to support and teach you with your dog. I continue to attend seminars and courses to keep up with my professional development and offer you the most up to date education in dog training.

Training Ethics

Our methods are KIND, FUN and FEAR FREE!

We use positive reinforcement with a strong emphasis on animal welfare combined with in depth and underpinning knowledge of canine behaviour and training.

We do not condone or use physical corrections or aversive equipment such as choke chains, prong collars, rattle cans or slip leads. Our classes and 1-1 lessons are fun, informal and enjoyable for you and your dog. We are proud members of several professional organisations that represent Force and Fear Free Trainers and we aim to teach you to understand your dog’s behaviour so that you can build a trusting cooperative relationship.
Our motto is “Train me – don’t blame me!”
