Dog trainers & behaviorists


Gwen worked for a leading UK national animal welfare charity from 1988-2002 and pioneered the use of dog behaviour knowledge in the rehoming of unwanted animals. She was the first person to be appointed by a national animal welfare charity as a full time Animal Behaviourist, eventually heading a team of behaviourists.

Gwen has successfully solved behaviour problems in thousands of rehomed dogs, helping to prevent them being passed from home to home, and greatly improving the rehoming success rate.

Twelve years ago she started Puppy School, a network of UK puppy trainers, all using kind, effective methods, and trained to a very high standard. The Puppy School network has grown to some 70 trainers around the UK, most of whom also offer puppy classes.

Gwen lectures at national and international conferences, runs training courses for staff at animal charities around the world and has written many books & education leaflets. She is a Trustee for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
