I am super lucky to know some amazing professionals who I would recommend in a heart beat, I have used and continue to use each and every one of them!
so check them out, visit them, enjoy their services, book them! Lets embrace having such amazing pooch friendly businesses on our door step.
Where to begin with Dogwood! There are so many amazing things, Firstly their secure bookable fields full of enriching activities for your pooch to enjoy off lead whilst you have peace of mind (a perfect place to get in some of your own training to). Their classes helping your pooch tap into the amazing power of their nose. Their joint classes with Cleveland Dogs. Their own pooch walking and adventure services! simply stunning!
I am coffee daft and this is my go to place when in Darlington! Echo 3 is unique, roasting their coffee in house and offering a variety of delicious homemade treats to accompany it. You can even buy bags of it to take home. Its a warm and relaxed star wars themed venue which is very pooch positive and welcome dogs openly.
My phone is full of photos of my dogs however NONE of them are as good as what Nick has captured. If you want to capture your dog for that perfect print or piece of wall art then get Ten77 Dog Photography. He is a natural dog lover with a great history of working with them. He will capture your dog in their truest form.
Great logo right! The place is even better! The folks at Swim Paws are fab and I love taking my pooches for a swim here. They offer a safe and engaging way for your dog to swim. Everything from puppies and older dogs learning, great exercise or supporting therapy and rehabilitation, Swim Paws is where you want to go!
Working with other amazing local professionals is key for the success of our dogs.
Viv like me has a passion for working with reactive behaviours but she also has amazing expertise in working with Separation related issues. This is an area I have not specialised in. So if you need Separation support, Viv is the lady to contact!
Just like with Dogwood and Pawsative Mutts, I get to work with some brilliant trainers and Natalie of Tees Valley Dog Training is just that.
As a fellow IMDT member and Hoopers L2 instructor you know you are in good hands with her experience and accreditation. She also has a passion for puppies!
