Force Free & Ethical Dog Training
In & Around Essex


About Me....


I'm Jen Feargrieve and I live in Essex with my family and my 2 stunning German Shepherds, Bear and Crystal.

I have over 12 years canine experience and have worked within the canine sector for many years.  I have studied many courses and hold various qualifications in relation to dog training and behaviour including a valid canine first aid certificate.  All certificates are available upon request.

I am a full member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers, the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and a full member professional of the Pet Professional Guild  I follow their code of ethics to ensure that I offer fun, ethical and rewarding training methods which are scientifically proven to be more motivating and successful than old traditional adverse training.

I am always keen to learn more and participate in seminars, courses and workshops often.  I am also a bookworm and read lots on dog training and all areas of canine behaviour.  

My dogs are amazing and have been the core of all my work and learning throughout the years.  However I'll let them tell you more.....


Sadly we lost Crystal this summer, Our hearts are broken and she will always be a big part of our lives.  2003-2016.

"I am Crystal, I am 13 years old and have lived with my mum since I was rescued from Battersea Dogs Home back in December 2003 when I was only a young pup.

I have been trained to an assistance dog level as I helped mum pass many of her course exams.

I love cuddles, my tennis ball and treats, but most of all I love being with my mum.  

I have seen many other dogs come and go and I have helped them learn the ropes, unfortunately they weren't able to stay as we were only fostering, but I'm glad we had the opportunity to help them on their way.

I don't get to do as much training anymore due to my poor health but I am always up for the odd trick training challenge that mum says keeps me young!!!

My naughtiest moment was when I chewed the carpet on the stairs when I was a puppy!!!"


"Hi, I'm Bear! I am 6 years old and I have been here ever since I was a puppy.... a very very very lazy puppy!!

Unfortunately due to bad breeding I suffer very badly with my hips and have to go to the vets lots but it doesn't stop me being happy and people always say I have the waggiest tail they have ever seen.

I love to do training with mum and she has taught me lots especially skills that help me build up my muscles in my legs.

I love everything!! I love people, I love other dogs, I love food, I love toys, I love sleeping but.... I love chasing bubbles the most!  I can even move the bubble lawnmower all by myself!! 

I get to do lots of training which I enjoy because I get lots of praise and liver cake!!! 

Crystal is my best friend and we do everything together, although I don't always think she feels the same especially when I try to eat her dinner!!!"



Big welcome to our new addition Woody.  He is currently 13 weeks old and is a fox red Labrador.

He is still very new to our hosuehold and is settling in very well.

Woody has an exciting future and will hopefully aid me in training dogs that are dog reactive and help teach children about dog behaviour and body language. 

My goal with Woody is to help with bite prevention and aggression issues.

Together in our personal time I'm hoping to get Woody in to agility when he is old enough.

Please check out our Facebook page for more updates on how well Woody is progressing.
