Meet The Team


Active Paws are a small team of dedicated walkers and trainers. We offer awesome adventures for dogs in our local area, while also providing group classes and bespoke 1:1 training for puppies and adult dogs both locally, nationally and internationally.

Our passion is helping guardians and their dogs to live happy, stress free lives together.

Our dog adventures give working families the knowledge of happy dogs while they are away at work.

We know how important training is for both ends of the lead. We strive to provide simple, effective, client focused coaching, bringing out the best in the human - canine partnership.

Undertaking regular CPD means we stay up to date with modern, science based training research, ensuring our methods are not only fun but effective.
