Paws’n’Learn Pet Training and Rehabilitation was launched in 1989. My passion is for puppy training and the prevention of behaviour problems. I also work with owners to help modify established problem behaviour in older dogs. Help has come from many sources but the greatest encouragement and support to actually launch Paws'n'Learn came from David Summers BVMS;MRCVS and Debbie Summers VN (Hollycroft Veterinary Centre, Hinckley, Leics.), and David Appleby (originally of the Pet Behaviour Centre, Worcs.)

I became interested in the work of Linda Tellington Jones' Tellington TTouch and TTEAM training techniques in 1997 and this has since played a major role in the direction that I have taken with Paws'n'Learn. Sarah Fisher TTouch/TEAM Instructor, established the UK TTouch/TTEAM Centre at Tilley Farm in Somerset because one of her greatest desires is to see these techniques made available to pet owners, trainers, groomers, veterinary staff and kennel staff for the benefit of animals in their care. I share this dream and have worked as part of the team to achieve this end.

After working together for some years, Sarah and I joined forces to write "100 Ways to Train the Perfect Dog" which was published by David and Charles in November 2008. This highly successful book  has now been published all around the world and in many different languages. Our second publication "100 Ways to Solve Your Dog's Problems" was published in Autumn 2009.

In Autumn 2011 and Spring 2012 Sarah and I taught the first "Cool to Be Kind" course at Tilley Farm, which integrated Tellington TTouch & Clicker Training methods for trainers, groomers and rescue workers. The course took the form of two, three day modules. This successful course will be repeated in the Spring and Autumn of 2013. 

Proud Day

It is always a joy to learn from and spend time with Linda Tellington Jones and I have been very lucky to receive my certificates from her at TTouch P1, P2 & P3 graduations. 

It was an honour to be invited to assist at the UK Advanced Practitioner Training at Tilley Farm. It was a great three days  with Linda, Sarah Fisher, Tina Constance  and all of the excellent TTouch Practitioners and PiTs who attended.

A wonderful and unexpected end to the Advanced Training  came during our closing circle when Linda promoted me to Tellington TTouch Instructor for Companion Animals.
