Mini
(Barnham, Westergate & Surrounded Areas)

AKA Mini Moo 
Mini loves all breeds of dog but is partial to a Parsons Terrier having already owned two, and now her third. She loves the challenge they bring when training the terrier breed because of their crazy zest for life.

When she’s not training she loves volunteering her help with the reactive rovers classes at SCDT, she also spends a few hours each week working in SCDT Doggie Daycare. 

In her spare time she likes to travel the UK & abroad in her Motorhome, taking her well travelled terrier with her wherever she goes. She also is a lover of the great outdoors, whether it be hiking or skiing, you will always find her up a hill of some sort.

Nikki 
(In-house home boarding)

 

Nikki has always loved dogs but has never been lucky enough to have her own, so she has had to get her doggy fix in other ways. She used to work at a busy boarding kennel in West Sussex and has done a lot of dog sitting in people's homes, for a range of dog breeds.

 

Nikki also loves horses and rides regularly. She also volunteers for Sussex County Dog Training on a Wednesday evening with the puppy and beginner training classes, which she loves.

 

Her favourite breed of dog is the Flat Coated Retriever and she hopes to have her own someday to put her newly learnt puppy training skills into practice!

Rachel owns Morley the Black Labrador and her favourite breeds have got to be Labrador and Retrievers as they're fun and loyal, and their affection outweighs their stubbornness and greediness! But she also has a soft spot for cockerpoos for their quirks!


Rachel loves finding good places to meet up with friends to eat, charity running, off-road biking, especially in the New Forest, chilling at her beach hut, finding new places to walk and a newfound love of crochet!

We are also the sister company to Sussex County Dog Training.

 

They have custom-built training facilities which include a training centre with rubber flooring, indoor and outdoor flyball runs and for agility. There are also enclosed fenced fields that allow them to give real life training and allows people to use them as a safe place to walk their dogs.

They also have an app they run to ensure you have all the support you need to reach your training goals.
