Dog behaviour & training that's done, just a little bit different

Our mission: To give you as dog companions the skills and knowledge you need to be able to understand the dog in front of you.

1:1 Young dog programme

1:1 Behaviour programmes

We work with families who want to geek out on dog behaviour

We’re not your everyday dog trainer. We’re very different to your average expectation of dog training and how it’s run.

We pride ourselves on being different and bucking the norm.

Our programmes are for all dog families 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 and by truly understanding the dog in front of them.

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

We love working closely with you and we know that training is for life, there are no shortcuts and there WILL be bumps in the road along the way.

Our programmes are for those families who are invested in putting the time in and understand that training is a life choice, not a 6 week course or a few sessions and that’s it.

So, if:

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 after a quick fix

Just 1 or 2 sessions

Not overly bothered by the geekiness of truly understanding your dogs psychology and how to have the best relationship with them

1:1 Behaviour

We’re here to help you figure out the cause of the behaviour and truly work with you to help our dogs through the struggle.

1:1 Young Dog

For dogs up to 24 months old wanting to get the foundations right with a genuine desire to understand the dog in front of them


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.

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.

Making sure you get results

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 am accredited with Absolute Dogs as a Pro Dog Trainer and I continue to follow in Jo’s footsteps with continuous learning and courses.
