My name is Jess and I am the face behind Follow My Lead Dog Training, based in Addlestone, Surrey.
I have always adored dogs and been interested in their behaviour from a young age. I studied Experimental Psychology at University and this furthered my enthusiasm for understanding how learning takes place.
I am a fully qualified trainer and behaviourist with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) & Behaviour (IMDTB). I solely use ethical, positive and force-free methods to train dogs with love. As an Assessed and Qualified Member of The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers I am proud to display the UK Dog Behaviour & Training Charter symbol.
I have also been lucky enough to have worked with numerous rescue dogs during the rehoming process. I believe that training and behavioural modification can, and should, be a positive, enjoyable experience and I'm passionate about helping owners and their dogs to live their best lives together.
I am committed to keeping my knowledge and approach up to date, regularly attending additional courses, undertaking further study and reading the latest publications on dog behaviour and training.
The wonderfully varied, complex and ever-changing nature of dogs
never fails to amaze and delight me. There is no ‘one size fits all’
way of training and I tailor my approach to the needs and nature of
each individual dog and owner I work with.
I look forward to hearing from you.
