The Puppy Specialists


Puppy School

I'm passionate about giving dogs the best start in life and I am very happy to be part of the UK network of tutors that is Puppy School ( We offer fun, reward based training classes aimed at teaching your pup basic obedience as well as equipping them with life skills to develop confidence as they grow. Our classes are family friendly and we encourage everyone who is involved with the pup to come along. We only use kind, modern methods of training (no pain, no force and no fear). You are always welcome to view a class ahead of booking (please let me know in advance).

About Me - Hannah

I studied Canine Behaviour graduating from Plumpton College and The British College of Canine Studies with Distinction. I am a qualified member of the ABTC and PPG (see below). Through Puppy School, I also received training from leading UK behaviourist and  author of 'The Perfect Puppy' Gwen Bailey ( I am committed to continuous professional development and attend supplemental courses every year to ensure my knowledge is always at the cutting edge of dog training theory.

In addition to Puppy School I train assistance dogs for a national charity where I train dogs to help people with physical disabilities. Some of the amazing things our dogs do include: opening and closing doors, retrieving objects such as phones, keys and clothing, raising the alarm in an emergency and taking items off a shelf in the supermarket. Please let me know if you'd like more information about the amazing work of the charity.

At home, I hang out with my Golden Retriever Arlow (pictured) who is an ex-assistance dog and loves to keep up with all his training. I also have two cats who I've also clicker trained to do various tricks. I hope you choose Horsham Puppy School to give your pup the best start in life.
