Louise Birkett

I started my dog training journey 10 years ago after graduating with a degree in Animal Behaviour and Training. I trained with an incredible force free gundog trainer who really helped me put the theory I had learned into practice. I saw just what could be achieved with kindness, trust and listening to the dog in front of you and it was FUN! Since then I have been working in class settings and one to one with dogs and owners to help dogs grow to be well mannered members of the family. 

I’ve worked with over 400 dogs and owners from puppyhood, through the teenage years and beyond (because training is never really finished!). My two huge training passions are puppy training and finding activities that owners can do with their dogs once all the “basic” training is done, the fun stuff, like parkour, mantrailing, gundog training and our activity classes. I love to train in a way that is low pressure and fun for both owners and dogs, because you're far more likely to stick with something if you're enjoying it right?

Whether you have a puppy or adult dog and are looking for things you can do together that goes beyond basic training. I offer a range of fun activities including gundog training, dog parkour, mantrailing or a taster course in several dog activities. At the minute COVID regulations mean only Mantrailing classes and one to one training are happening face to face over Winter.

I THRIVE on seeing a dog and owner working as a team, I love seeing the look of pride (or shock…for those of little faith) on the owners face when their dog “gets it” and understands what they are meant to be doing. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a dog and owner enjoying each other’s company. Which is why I started Fellowship Dog Training and love what I do.

So that’s me, and that’s the foundation for Fellowship Dog Training.

About Me: Testimonials

Sadie & Barley

Fellowship Dog Training is truly accessible to all ages: like my 2.5yrs & 5yr old daughters being involved with training. Doing the puppy training sessions & teenage training absolutely gave us very solid training blocks to build up from and has resulted, we think, in one very happy family dog.

Brenda & Luther

I am very fortunate to have discovered Louise from the outset of owning a working cocker spaniel puppy. 4 years later WE have learned a lot and had much fun with activities such as Parkour, Hoopers, Mantrailing and much more.

Amy & Shadow

The online classes I did with my puppy during lockdown were insanely useful and insightful. The attention to detail that Louise gives to every video she posts for you to learn from is incredible. Then the feedback you get is personal and tailored to you and your dogs needs. Shadow and I would certainly do them again, can’t recommend this course enough!

Clare & Nessie

Nessie and I did online classes and it was great. Being able to watch videos more than once was helpful and once you get over your nerves on posting your attempts the 1:1 feedback was so
helpful and just as good as attending a face to face class. So don’t hold back. Get booked in. It’s a fabulous local resource
