About Us

Emmy

Devoted to Dogs is an online service which provides explanation, advice, support and guidance. We use the latest science-based methods to help you train, puppy basics, advanced life skills to reactive dog training from the comfort of your own home. 

We understand that life is very busy, owners often need immediate help, extra guidance with their individual session or class homework and not all people (and dogs) feel comfortable in a group setting. This is why we have created Devoted to Dogs. 

Yes, I love dogs, but there is more to it than that...

I do adore dogs (all animals to be honest) but dog training is more than helping dogs. I love to help people too. I listen to an owner's concerns and their training goals, we problem solve together to ensure the training plan slots into your everyday life. One big owner concern was centered around finding time to commit to classes and/or training on a regular basis. Devoted to Dogs was born!

We have been providing an online training resource since 2016 to help ensure owners have everything they need to know how to train their dog at the touch of a button.

This immediate, unlimited, 24/7 accessibility achieves, long-lasting dog training results. Owners can work at their (and their dogs) pace, any time of day, working on the training is which ever order suits. 

We work to make your life easier!

 

Devoted to Dogs talk you through everything you need to know from why your dog is carrying out a behaviour, how to solve the problem and how to achieve real-life results.
