Jo runs her own training and behaviour business, ‘Mannerly Mutts’. She is based in South Shropshire and offers training classes at her local village hall and has recently set up a purpose built; secure facility, “HQ.” for behavioural consults and one to one training sessions at her home. This allows for an individual approach to help the client overcome any training or behaviour issues presented.
Jo believes training should be held in a variety of situations. Too many dogs behave impeccably in their home environment or in a hall and then when faced with the varied distractions of the real world the focus of the dog disappears and the owner really struggles.
Jo lives on a smallholding with horses, a donkey, cats, free-range poultry and ducks plus her dogs. This provides an ideal environment for working with issues that living in a rural environment can create. Huge emphasis is placed on the behavioural element of training to provide owners with a better understanding of why their dog behaves as he does.
The new facilities at home have allowed Jo to offer pet dog agility classes too, a new venture.
Jo is a Kennel Club Assured Breeder of German Shepherd Dogs and Large Munsterlanders. She enjoys showing her dogs and has recently embarked on judging Large Munsterlanders. She holds the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers Instructors Certificate and is currently working toward her degree in canine behaviour with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training.
