aboutME

My name is Patricia Melck. I have always been passionate about animals and dogs in particular - I currently have 4 of my own. I believe it is very important to socialise and train your dog from a very young age. Training helps your dog adjust to the human way of doing things. When I was made redundant at the start of lockdown, I decided to follow my dream and start my own puppy school. I completed the Pet Sense College's Canine Behaviour and Training Instructor Course in 2020. I have also completed some short courses by renowned dog trainers, Victoria Stilwell and Ian Dunbar. I look forward to helping you and your puppy take those first crucial steps towards a happy and well socialised life.
