Dog School West Midlands

Welcome to Dog School West Midlands!

We are a dynamic trio offering family training sessions for dogs old and young. We are currently offering classes from both Evesham and Kenilworth Rehoming Centres as well as Birmingham locations.

We are passionate about the work we do with people and dogs from all walks of life, we seek to provide support and care to owners, enabling them to learn more about their dogs needs and the use of positive training methods to equip their canine companion with the skills for a successful and happy family life. After all, we believe a happy dog makes a happy owner!

We offer a fun, accessible and interactive environment to support deepening the bond between owner and dog.

Trainers' profiles

Head Coach Jennifer comes from a welfare background and brings a huge amount of training experience to her role at Dogs Trust, Jennifer has a special interest in puppy socialisation and training.

 

Over recent years she has worked with rescue animals- working with and training volunteers, visiting groups, children and young people and also representing the shelter at events and engagements within the community. She has also spent some time volunteering at local dog training classes and working for a small doggy day care facility.

 

Jen loves all dogs but is especially fond of Staffies and Boxers. She currently owns a Miniature JRT, a foster dog she took in from her last place of work and couldn’t part with following his amazing and full recovery to health.

Senior coach Amy has been working with dogs for the past 15 years, 11 of which have been with Dogs Trust. She has gained various qualifications within that time and most recently has a Cert HE in Companion Animal Welfare and Behavioural Rehabilitation from Bristol University as well as Dogs Trust accredited courses in dog training and dog behaviour. She joins Dog School after 5 years of being a trainer at the Dogs Trust Loughborough centre and within that time she also worked closely with the centre's Training behaviour advisor's (TBAs) in assessing, designing and implementing training programs for the centre's STaR and Sanctuary unit.

 

She is particularly fond of Labrador Retrievers and Bernese Mountain dogs. She currently owns a 5 year old Labrador called Molly who was adopted from Dogs Trust at the age of 9 months. When adopted, Molly was very worried by the change in environment’s and struggled to cope with different sounds. Over the years, Amy has gradually boosted Molly's confidence. Although Amy has a special interest in working alongside nervous dogs she is also very keen to help owners understand their dogs body language and help guide them in the right direction to allow both owner and dog to succeed in all training areas. 

Emma has a Cert HE in companion animal welfare and behavioural rehabilitation from Bristol University as well as Dogs Trust accredited courses in dog training and dog behaviour.
