About Me

Anthony Lennard - Dog Trainer

Picking a dog trainer isn't always easy.  There are lots of us out there and it can be even harder to find one that you'd like to work with.  That is why I have created this page, it will allow you to find out what you can expect when you work with me.


From a young age I have always enjoyed being around dogs.  However, it wasn't until I got my first dog Tywin, that I became interested in dog training.  Watching his transformation from a nervous, wary puppy to a confident and friendly dog, kickstarted my interest in training.  I have been learning and developing my skills since.  I am:

- A registered ATI (Animal Training Instructor) with the ABTC (Animal Behaviour & Training Council).​

- A full member of PACT (Professional Association of Canine Trainers).​

- A member of the IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers)​

- A Kids Around Dogs (KAD) instructor.​

- A member of PPG (Pet Professional Guild).

- Currently studying an advanced diploma (level 5) in Canine Behaviour with Compass Education.

I only use the most up to date, ethical, science based methods.  I will never use methods that cause fear, pain or punishment to your dog.  ​​

My Dog Training Approach

Helping a dog overcome their training or behavioural issues takes time, there are no quick fixes.  That is why I only offer training programmes, instead of one off sessions, which give us the time to achieve the results you want whilst helping your dog.

Your training programme will be completely personalised to you and your dog.  When training your dog, it is important to treat them as individuals.  What works for one dog might not work for another, it is never a case of one size fits all.

 I will help you understand the reasons and motivation behind your dogs behaviour and most importantly how to help them.  By helping your dog, your relationship with them will be based on mutual trust and understanding.  

My only goal is to help you have the relationship with your dog, that you've always dreamed of.

I'd love to chat with you about how I can help you and your dog.
