Owner & Dog Trainer
Amanda grew up with family bulldogs, cats and horses. The first dog she owned was a collie from Battersea Dogs Home and there started her love of collies and rescues.
Each of her dogs have fuelled her passion to help others …. Jess a reactive pup from a pound, Harle is deaf and Sunny was fostered. She has trained in Competition Obedience, Heelwork to Music and Sunny competes in Agility. Proudly achieving phenomenal success reaching Discover Dogs in 2019 and winning the Kennel Club Starters Cup with her beloved Banjo, forever missed and never forgotten as her first agility dog who taught her so much.
Over the years she has fostered dogs which has given her an invaluable insight into many dog behaviours as well as living with the dynamics of her family of 4 dogs. She definitely speaks dog more than she does English!
Her motto is…’Don’t hold back til tomorrow what you can do today …. train your dog it reaps happiness as well as rewards.’
Lisa and Raffie her 8 yr Cockerpoo.
We first met Lisa 7 years ago when she needed boarding for Raffie. Raffie loved Pads n Paws so much he got his mum a job with us.
As a child Lisa grew up with a menagerie of animals including a hamster, fish, rabbits, budgies, cockatiel, parrot, bull terrier, chihuahuas, collie x german shepherd.
Today she is owned by just Raffie an 8 year old Cockerpoo.
