About Us

Being dog owners ourselves we fully understand our customer’s needs and have set ourselves apart from others by offering many services from a single business. With over 15 years of experience in pet care and continual investment in training and professional qualifications we aim to keep up to date with the Dog Law and regularly consolidate our skills and knowledge (behavioural, dog training and canine 1st aid). We work only using positive, kind and rewarding methods of training and are not only recommended by vets but used by vets.

Ally is a qualified Tellington Ttouch Practitioner (Companion Animal Training and Behavioural) with a diploma from Edinburgh University in Animal Welfare. A regular volunteer at Battersea Dogs and Cats home where she uses Ttouch to help those dogs (especially sight hounds) cope with the stress of being kennelled with the longer term goal of rehabilitation so that they can be rehomed. Our own lurcher is from Battersea, a lovely dog that has settled in well to our home, his forever home.

Aidan is a trainer accredited by The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT). He is also progressing with scent detection work with our Hungarian Vizsla with Talking Dogs Scentwork and Tracking through both the UK Dog Tracking Association and World Scent Dog Association.

We enjoy seeing dogs have fun and find it fascinating to see the bonds that are developed between dogs in our care. We aim to give all dogs the personal attention that you would expect from experienced and professional dog loving people in a dog loving home.

Allywags Ltd is a registered licensed business, with full insurance for the care, training and walking of dogs. All of our handling follow the ethics promoted by Tellington Ttouch and the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) and our ethos is to provide a safe canine social environment with access to off lead play, regular stimulating walks and a variety of mental activities including scent and search games.
