Welcome and thank you for visiting Marley’s Mutts UK – Dog Training & Pet Services. We’ve all read the book and seen the film, right? Well, Halina has her own Marley. He hasn’t eaten through the garage wall, but being left outside a rescue at just 9 weeks of age, has left him with some behavioural issues. Halina had recently lost her beloved Jodie, and it was love at first sight.
Marley’s Mutts was founded by Halina in April 2017, following her accreditation as a Certified Dog Trainer. Her love for animals began when she was a young child and went from strength to strength. For years, work colleagues asked each other about their children and families yet asked Halina about her dogs.
Halina has worked with animals, in particular dogs, for most of her life. Her love of dog training really started aged 16, when she worked at the Metropolitan Police Dog Training Kennels in Kent.
Halina had two Dobermans in her mid 20’s, Jed & Jodie, who really fuelled her passion for training. They sometimes fought; pulled her arms out their sockets on walks; and, reacted to some dogs they met on, and off lead. Every training class attended or trainer she hired, used old fashioned training methods, which involved using fear and punishment. She knew there had to be another way to support them, and her. She wanted to understand more about their behaviour, and how she could manage their behaviour better. Halina had followed Victoria Stilwell’s ‘positively’ website for years, and was one of the first students to join the Victoria Stilwell Academy (VSA) in the UK.
If any of this resonates with you, and like Halina, were asked to, or have used punishment or force in the past, then we can help. How would it be if we showed you there is a better way; there is a much kinder way. By using positive reinforcement, kindness and force free training methods, you and your dog’s relationship will flourish.
How would you like help and support in working with your dog, not only from someone who is accredited and continues with their professional development, but from someone who also understands your struggles & frustrations.
