Debbie Taylor

I have been a Puppy School tutor in Cheshire since 2013 and I am also a registered ABTC instructor.

It was my first puppy, Amber, that sparked my passion for dogs and encouraged my journey towards becoming a Puppy School tutor.

Amber attended Puppy School classes when young, and it was experiencing this course first hand that made me realise how hugely beneficial it is for young puppies to get the correct start in life.

Adequate socialisation, habituation and basic training ensures puppies grow up to be happy and confident adult dogs. Reward based learning helps build a lifelong relationship with your new family member and I am passionate about helping you to achieve your own success in owning a wonderful well-balanced dog.

My Puppy School course provides an easy to follow homework manual and all the support and advice you will need.
Classes are easy and effective, but most importantly, they are fun for you and your new puppy.

Puppy School tutors come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Apart from running our puppy classes, many have thriving careers in rescue shelters and some work as veterinary nurses, dog walkers, dog groomers, dog training professionals or behaviourists. What they all have in common is a passion for training puppies and a keen interest in animal welfare and behaviour.

Our Puppy School tutors and associate tutors must undergo extensive training before teaching Puppy School classes. This includes an application and interview process, six days of comprehensive theory covering a range of topics from animal learning to lesson plans (taught by founder and director, Gwen Bailey, APBC registered behaviourist), as well as three days of supervised practical work and a comprehensive correspondence course.

Dog Looking up
Puppy School classes are monitored regularly to ensure the highest standards are consistently being maintained. Tutors are carefully overseen by Regional Managers to make sure they are using all the skills necessary to become excellent, positive, reward-based puppy trainers. Our tutors must uphold our Code of Conduct at all times and must complete a sufficient amount of continued professional development each year.

Puppy School is delighted to have been recognised as a Practitioner Organisation for the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC). The ABTC is the regulatory body that represents animal trainers and animal behaviour therapists to both the public and to legislative bodies. It is the only animal welfare charity that is primarily concerned with protecting the psychological welfare of animals undergoing training and behaviour activities.
