Some days you put your hand in poo, othe


Dog Training for Owners

Whilst other little girls were dreaming of sparkles and princess dresses, I dreamt of fur and 4 paws and I'm now lucky enough to be able to live my dream every day helping people give their dogs the best they can. I've worked professionally with dogs in many different capacities for the last 4 years, gaining hands on experience guiding clients to ensure their dogs are happy, healthy and well balanced. I don't train dogs, I guide you to ensure you're getting the best out of your relationship with your dog. 

We like to do things a little differently at The Modern Canine, bringing years of expert knowledge and continued professional development with a range of theoretical study and undertaking hands on workshops to have the most up to date knowledge and techniques to what we do every day. We offer dog training and behaviour modification on a private basis, no village hall classes here. 

We believe firmly in coaching owners on how to train their pets to get the most of out their relationship together and we hope to offer an insight into why our dogs behave the way they do, instead of just fixing symptoms of dog behaviour. When owners understand their dogs and communicate in a way the dog can understand, both you and your dog will benefit greatly.



Relationship. The most important part of your training journey. This requires putting the value in you before everything else. 

Enrichment. Ensuring you are understanding and meeting your dogs individual needs through learning, play and physical exercise.

Structure. Creating clear and concise communication methods and setting your dog up to succeed. 


"Can’t recommend Kate enough! Such an amazing trainer who tackles issues from so many different angles depending on what is needed and best suited at the time.
She’s been incredible with us and has given us so much confidence, even offering day school during lockdown so our dog hasn’t missed out on any sessions.
Our pup has such a great bond with Kate it’s brilliant to see!"

"Kate’s insight and knowledge about how best to support me and my dog has transformed our training. My 1 year old dobe/gsd cross and I have a long way to go but I’m so grateful I’ve found Kate as a trainer. Her passion and patience has inspired me to just keep being consistent and I’m now thinking about learning more about scent-work.

Highly recommend for all and any issues you have or if you just want to learn more about how to enjoy the precious time we have with our dogs."
