Meet The Trainer - Faye!
Hi I'm Faye Barker and I grew up with dogs, including Monty the Golden Retriever who's now almost 16 years old! In January I brought home a wonderful Beauceron Puppy called Aloy who was born Nov 2022.
I have spent years learning about dogs, including a Masters (MRes) in Anthrozoology (human-animal relationship) and a degree (BSci with hons) in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. I love studying everything dog.
My experience includes much more than dog training, such as professional grooming, hydrotherapy, agility, training Guide Dogs and working dogs, plus more!
I currently work as Kennel Manager for Military dogs and therefore Dorset Paws is a part-time business.
Training Available With Dorset Paws
As first time puppy owners, it's difficult knowing whether we are always doing the right thing when training our dog, but thanks to the puppy training classes at Dorset Paws, we now feel much more confident. Faye is extremely knowledgeable and gave us loads of great advice. We really enjoyed the classes and our puppy really enjoyed the opportunity to socialise with other dogs! We would definitely recommend these classes to anyone with a puppy!
