Is your dogs constant pulling spoiling your daily walks?

Does your dog pull your arm out of its socket when he spots another dog?

Do you wish you could take your dog with you on days out without their constant pulling causing you stress?


I’m Laura, your personal trainer and I am here to help

Laura Carter

A dog who pulls on the lead is exhausting to walk. The constant tug of war causing friction between you. 

This constant pulling can cause long term health problems for both dog and owner. The strain put on the owners arm and dogs neck can cause muscle and ligament damage, some of which may not be immediately obvious. 

I have been training dogs for over 10 years. I have taken on rescue dogs who have dragged me about leaving me feeling frustrated and out of control. Having worked with a variety of breeds from tiny Yorkshire Terriers to Great Danes and Newfoundland’s, I understand the individual needs of each dog and owner.  

Fed up with feeling like one arm is longer than the other?

Embarrassed about walking your dog with friends because of the constant pulling?

Wish you could take you dog with you for relaxing days out?

Feel like the constant pulling is spoiling your daily walks?

Stop the Pull is a free online mini course comprising of 5 videos for you to watch at your leisure. Learn where to attach the lead, and how to hold it, how to calmly leave the house, why sniffing is so important, teach your dog to wait and set realistic expectations for walks. A great introduction to the training methods used at the Dog Owner Training School.

“Laura’s support has been invaluable in producing a happy dog who is well on the way to being a delight inside and out, on and off the lead, despite not being the easiest breed.  She’s patient and creative, and is able to adapt her approach and advice to the preferences of individual owners and dogs.  There are many dog training resources out there, some good, some perhaps less so, but Laura’s non-judgemental approach and willingness to engage directly with specific challenges stand out.” Mrs Moriarty

Personalized help and support

Every dog and owner is different, which is why we put together a training plan that works for you. 





Training that is simple to follow

Each training exercise is broken down into simple, easy to follow steps.

Email, phone and WhatsApp support between sessions

Its a bit like having a dog training in your pocket. Whether you book a home visit, group class or sign up to train online, you are welcome to contact the trainer for support between sessions when you need it.  

Family friendly training

The whole family is welcome to get involved with the training experience. Ask about K9 Cadets – our training programme for children.

A positive training experience for owners and dogs.

Positive, reward based training is used with both the dogs and their owners. Leave each session feeling optimistic with new ideas.

Training that works in real life

Training in a village hall is very different to being out in the real world. Our training is designed to work where you need it to.

“Excellent training programme. The videos are so informative, and full of advice. The benefit of having an online training programme means you can keep watching the videos time and again, and work at yours and your puppy’s pace, without feeling under pressure.

Laura is the fountain of all knowledge, who absolutely loves dogs, and is always available for a chat, and to offer advice when needed” G. Gasson
