About Vera Marney

I have loved dogs from the moment I could walk according to my mum, but I have had to wait until my 30ies to have my own. Up to then, I walked and trained neighbours' and friends' dogs, so I have clocked up nearly 4 decades of dog training experience. I have also owned small animals from a young age and still have birds and chinchillas in addition to my dogs. I simply enjoy being around animals and working with them. What better job is there...  


In addition to my extensive practical experience I have a degree in Canine Behaviour and Training and am a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, an ABTC Registered Animal Instructor as well as a full member of the Pet Professional Guild.  I am also an approved Assistance Dog Trainer for the charity Dog A.I.D.

I like to regularly update my skills and knowledge. I train my own dogs in competitive obedience, agility and trick training, but I also enjoy dabbling in other dog activities like gundog training and scentwork. And of course I love learning forever more with seminars, workshops, books etc. as continuous development is important to get even better at what I do to help both my own dogs and my clients' dogs!
