I have a passion for training and the services I offer are focused on helping all those I work with achieve what they want to...
All of the dog training courses, individual training plans and Career courses I offer have been carefully designed as a result of 20 years experience. I have experience as a groomer, dog walker, daycare provider, home boarder and the bulk comes from working in dog training and behaviour.
While my work experience is vital to help those attending my training, I also have Level 3 and Level 5 qualifications in training adults so you can be confident you'll have a professional and supportive experience.
I have been awarded 'Best Puppy Training Specialist' in London for 2019 and in South East London for 2018. I'm thrilled to have received these votes for the last 2 years.
Please get in touch - I really look forward to working with you - Angela

I began working with dogs in 1995, starting out in Dog Grooming and quickly moving into the field of Training and Behaviour. I began Progress Dog Training with a vision of helping pet dog owners raise pets who are a pleasure to have at home and within our society.
The business grew to running over 20 classes a week offering obedience, agility and gundog courses mainly from a training centre in Bexleyheath. In addition, my Individual Behaviour work increased and with many more clients approaching me through recommendation from existing clients and professionals, I decided to concentrate on offering professional services to a high standard to all of my clients - I thoroughly enjoy sharing all my experiences on the variety of Career Courses I provide. I hold a Level 3 award in Education and training and a Level 5 Teaching certificate which offers clients confidence in my ability to train people , not just dogs!
I have been lucky enough to take part in organising enjoyable activities such as fun dog shows, daycare, charity displays and various related activities. Personally I have had articles published in the local press, the Bexley Times and the Chronicle and also have a book published called ‘The New Puppy Owners Manual’. I have provided assessments on dogs when required for legal reasons and have worked with a few of our local veterinarian practices.
In addition to formal qualifications, I have almost 20 years of experience working with owners under many different circumstances. Whether you are part of a family, single, a home worker or dealing with changing situations, I understand that every client is different and what works for one does not necessarily work for another!
I have experience of puppies, adult dogs, rehomed dogs, mistreated dogs, and sensitive or challenging dogs, providing objectives and support for their basic training needs to complete Behavioural rehabilitation.
I use reward based training with a variety of modern techniques as appropriate with an emphasis on combining a Behavioural approach with the discipline of training.
Working in the dog industry for over 20 years in such a variety of roles, from working indivudally to owning a large training, daycare and grooming centre has given me the knowledge to help others succeed in careers in these fields. I'm lucky to have other fantastic Dog Care professionals working with me to provide the range of services I can offer.
