Welcome! I’m Gemma Fisher
My goal is to help you enjoy living with your dogs as much as I do. There is nothing I love better than to spend time watching them run free when we go out walking together – it’s a great way to relax and unwind after a busy day.
The dogs I grew up with as a child gave me an easy confidence around dogs and a curiosity to learn more about them. Those two beautiful Golden Retrievers, a busy Springer Spaniel and a fiery Yorkshire Terrier have been responsible for a life-long love affair with dogs that has grown ever stronger with each passing year.
As a child I loved those early family dogs, but my training of dogs didn’t start until I was a young adult, when my family welcomed two Terrier type Heinz 57’s into our home.
The lessons I learned with those two dogs, and the mistakes I inevitably made along the way, have been invaluable to my dog training knowledge and perhaps more importantly, how I’m able to help other dog owners.

Who I can help
Dog training looks simple – but it isn’t easy. As someone who’s been embarrassed and despondent because of her dog’s behaviour in the past, I understand your struggles! There are no judgements passed here!
You’ve come to the right place to find kind, fair and effective solutions to your dog training troubles. Here are some of the topics I write about in my blog:
- Puppy Advice
- How Dogs Learn
- Recommended Resources
- Solutions to Specific Training Problems
- Diet & Exercise
Why I teach
Because good quality, up-to-date dog training advice should be something that is accessible to everyone.
As a mother and dog lover I find it heart breaking to read so many devastating stories involving dogs that make headline news, headlines that could have potentially been avoided had people had more knowledge and understanding of how dogs tick.
Dogs are truly amazing animals, and with consistent and kind training they are a joy to live with.
Their remarkable ability to work for humans as guide dogs for the blind, hearing dogs for the deaf, police dogs, cancer detection dogs, diabetes alert dogs – and so many other things besides.
I am truly in awe of these extraordinary animals.
