Our expert training methods help solve behaviour and communication issues for dogs such as aggression towards people or other animals. We can cure embarrassing habits, such as barking, jumping up on people, scratching and more. You want an obedient dog that will happily walk on the lead without tugging, sit or stay on command. Look no further, we can help you get there.
Hi and welcome to Boots & Paws, we are fully insured with Protectivity insurance, pet first aid trained and qualified
About me Sarah Whiteley (C.P Dip lv4 canine coaching & C.P. Dip Lv3 Holistic canine behaviour),(O.C Dip lv3, O.A.Dip Lv3 Veterinary care assistant), (BSY dog training practitioner lv), (ADTB instructor) (Canine body language specialist and instructor, Puppy training specialist) (Approved instructor with the dog training collage)
Specialising in reactivity and aggression, experienced in large breed, working dogs and rescues.
I have always been around dogs since I was born and have a great love for our four legged friends,
As a child I would always love to walk dogs and as I got older I would pet sit for family and friends.
At 16 I joined the RSPCA as a volunteer and worked in the kennel block looking after the dogs. I later became a dog handler for a security company and worked with Nottinghamshire police under a scheme set up in Mansfield.
I then started studying about animal care and animal psychology, after gaining qualifications in dog training I decided to help with some dog rescues in South Yorkshire, where I adopted a couple of rescue dogs Kesh and Jazz (sadly both have gone over the rainbow bridge)
I moved to Aldershot in 2014 with my husband who is also military, and now I’m living in Watchfield, Swindon. I have worked for both Aspire defence and Carillion Amey, but I decided to leave to set up Boots & Paws after I found it hard to find a dog walker that catered for my dogs needs and had the correct insurance cover.
Not only am I fully insured I also have security clearance with the MOD.
