Dog School

Dog School Nottinghamshire

The Dog School Nottinghamshire team have extensive experience in animal behaviour, and are all passionate positive-reinforcement advocates. We provide a range of group classes, workshops & seminars in the local community to help owners teach foundation skills for real life and prevent undesirable behavioural problems from developing.

Our classes aim to improve the bond between dogs and their owners – providing a fun, stimulating and informative environment to learn basic household manners, while working to identify and prevent problem behaviours. We believe training should be accessible and enjoyable; that's why we use methods that can be utilised by all members of the family.

Our team are friendly & approachable - on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Chelsea Martin, Head Coach

Head Coach Chelsea Martin is a professionally certified dog trainer from Seattle, Washington. Her love of dogs stemmed from assisting puppy mill rescue groups with fostering and rehoming. With over 10 years of experience teaching private and group classes, Chelsea specialises in behaviour modification. Over the past decade, Chelsea has managed a large doggie daycare & training facility, worked in a veterinary hospital and spent time as a pet nutrition specialist.

Chelsea loves all dogs, but is especially fond of hounds. She currently owns a miniature dachshund, Apple, who made the big move across the pond with her momma.

Jahnia Riddell , Senior coach

Jahnia started her journey with us at the Dog School as a volunteer, whilst studying for her BSc (Hons) in Animal Behaviour and Welfare, having already graduated with a Foundation Degree in the same subject at Reaseheath College.

She became a Coach with us after completing her studies and gaining knowledge of the behaviour and welfare of an array of different animals. Jahnia has had a passion for working with animals, especially dogs, for many years now, having gained work experience in local vets and rescue centres. She is looking forward to expanding her knowledge as a Dog School Coach.

Grace has worked with a large range of animals during her time studying, including at farms, animal units and rescue centres. Dogs remain her firm favourite after being brought up with them. Staffordshire Bull Terrier is her favourite breed - with her own Staff, Reggie, keeping her busy on her days off.
