How we can help

Our programmes are for all dog owners who want to dramatically improve their dogs behaviour or to get their puppy off to a great start in life, by acquiring the skillset needed and knowledge required to teach dogs using force free methods.

We are all about increasing your awareness to the wonderful and complex world of dog behaviour – it is NOT about getting quick fixes.

So, if:

You want 1-2-1 bespoke training (we come to you)

You’ve got a new puppy and want the best start for them

You want to understand why your dog is behaving a certain way

You’re not seeing results with what you’re currently doing

You want to be part of a community of likeminded people

You want a dedicated team to support you 24/7

You’re invested in long term results

You’re a geek like us and are fascinated by behaviour psychology 

You feel like we’re a good fit for you

Then we want to hear from and work with you! 🙂


Our programmes ARE NOT for you if:

You’re wanting puppy or group classes 

You only want a handful of sessions

You need a quick fix

You are not willing to spend time working with us to understand dog psychology

Sitting and staying when asked

Settling and chilling when asked

Coming back even when there are squirrels

Walking nicely on lead

We have squished lessons into short 5 minute daily sessions. 


What They Say

"She certainly has impressed me... I have had the best training for my puppy, from probably the best trainer out there. Well done Jo, I am absolutely over the moon I will continue to recommend you to everyone I know!!"
"Jo, Kerry & Kim are absolutely amazing! Working with them is invaluable and has changed not only our dogs life but ours as well. We cannot imagine being without Jo and the team so have enrolled into the PawPlus Academy. We can't recommend enough!"
Sofia, Fiona + Flo
"I can honestly say I did not think anyone could change how Astra was behaving, but we are now seeing the transformation. Jo is an excellent trainer and a lot of knowledge and experience, I would recommend her to anyone."

The team

Hi, I’m Jo…

Based in Solihull, West Midlands, I provide positive and ethical dog training with an emphasis on behaviour and doing better than we’ve previously done when it comes to training our dogs.

I have studied under and worked with internationally recognised Clinical Animal Behaviourist, Sarah Whitehead (BA, MSc) who gave me the foundation of all the training I’ve become to make my own over the years.

I am an accredited Pro Dog Trainer through the Absolute Dogs model and have undertaken many courses with IMDT, School of Canine Science, Grisha Stewart, Sarah Whitehead, Kay Laurence and more. I attend as many conferences as I possibly can varying from those put on from Chirag Patel (you may have seen him on the latest Pet Programme as their dog behaviourist), Victoria Stillwell, Absolute Dogs, and the Empowered Dog community.

My home library is awash with dog behaviour books that I read and refer to regularly to ensure that I’m the very best that I can be to support you with your dog training needs.

I invest heavily in my continued professional development (CPD) and am constantly striving to do better, be better, and encourage a movement in the dog ownership world to shift our thoughts on how we train our dogs. I want people to truly have the skills to understand their dogs based on all the information we now have available to us through studies and evidence that can better influence our training relationships with our dogs.

Dog Trainers, Solihull

Hi, I’m Kerry…

My journey is a little different to Jo’s in that I actually started out with Jo as a client in 2018 with my Labrador, Thor.

Throughout the years of working with Jo I developed my passion for dog training and never expected to learn so much in a dog training programme than I did with Paw Education. I also loved the relationship that my family and I had developed with Jo that I can honestly say is nothing short of true friendship.

In 2021 there was an opportunity to join Paw Education as a trainee trainer and I jumped at the chance! Jo has and continues to put me through the paces to ensure I’m of a high enough standard to coach you as dog owners with your struggles.

I have passed my accreditation with Absolute Dogs so I’m officially a Pro Dog trainer and I continue to follow in Jo’s footsteps with courses and learning as stated in Jo’s bio. I’m currently delving into behaviour learning and undertaking Sarah Whitehead courses. We work closely together to ensure no stone is unturned and she’s triple checking everything along the way.
