I have worked with a range of species for over 18 years having gained a number of qualifications including

  • NVQ Level 2 Caring for Animals
  • NVQ Level 3 in Animal Welfare and Management
  • Certificate of Higher Education in Animal Science  
  • First Class BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour and Welfare
  • Post Graduate Diploma in Education
  • As well as a selection of purpose trained courses aimed at the animal welfare sector which are attended on a regular basis.

I have been lecturing in Animal Management for a number of years been which has allowed me to work with animals of different temperaments and teach young people how to care for these species.  This has enabled me to continue gaining practical experience as we as keeping up to date with changes in the animal industry.  In the past I have owned and worked with a range of species including reptiles, farm livestock and primates.  I have also established animal care centres for further education colleges and have had the responsibility of running these and ensuring the animals were cared for to the highest standards.  

I regularly attend courses and seminars on animal behaviour and training to ensure my knowledge is up to date.  As a former bloodhound owner I understand the frustrations of training a 'stubborn' breed and the difficulties that this can bring!  I offer a caring, professional service where you and your pet will get the training and advice you deserve without being judged.   I share my life with my rescue dog Coco who, being reactive, teaches me new ways of training reactive dogs on a daily basis.                                    

I am currently on part time leave due to bringing up my one year old son.  Steph Sleet is currently running Puppy School classes whilst I am offering home training and Pesky Paws classes for reactive dogs.

I was born into a family of animal lovers and have always had a dog in the family. During school I managed to gain voluntary work caring for many different animals in a Rescue Centre.   This enabled me to gain a wide range of experience in the needs of different animals.  It was during this time I gained a particular love for horses, pushing me to want to gain further experience. My determination paid off when I found work at a riding school during the weekends, where I would assist with helping out around the stables and caring for the horses.  At 16 I decided that my passion for horses was something I needed to follow as a career.  I gained employment at a horse racing yard and moved to Newmarket.

Some years later, after having a family of my own and having extensive experience of training my own dogs, I decided to gain qualifications to become a dog trainer with the Academy of Dog Training and Behaviour .  
I run classes for all ages in both Stafford and Short Heath.

Over the past four years, I have worked with a range of dogs including puppies, rescue and police dogs. In 2016 I completed a Batchelor of Science degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare at Harper Adams University in Shropshire.
I have always had a strong passion for working with animals, and have owned several different species from a young age. I currently have two cats, Mia and Freddie, and a Cockapoo called Summer with whom I attended Puppy School classes. Having been through the puppy stages with my own dog, I can relate to the challenges that new owners face and hope that the simple and positive methods used in the puppy classes will help improve the relationships between the owners and their puppies.
In addition to running Puppy School classes, I currently work full time as the manager of a boarding kennels and cattery. This, and my previous work with dogs, has allowed me to gain valuable experience working with a range of breeds, ages and temperaments. I have always had an interest in dog training, which led me to pursue my passion and complete my Puppy School training in early 2017.
