“No symphony orchestra has ever played music like a two year old child laughing with a puppy”
Careful supervised play and training allows children to be more involved with their new puppy in a safe enjoyable way . They get very excited about their new arrival and want to be involved but often don’t know how to behave around them. Learning how to train their puppy or older dog allows a child to play with him/her in a positive way that both of them will enjoy so they will grow up the best of friends.
I love working with children, helping them understand how to behave around a puppy, do basic training that even young children can help with and look after their new pal so they feel more involved.
I help show them how to recognise the signs that their dog has had enough and needs to have some space and quiet time.
How to show their puppy affection without frightening their puppy.
How to deal with bitey puppies that can jump up and upset and scare children.
My children’s home visits and sessions here in my classroom are designed for children to be more involved with their new puppy or older dog’s training whilst also staying safe, with parents being involved to encourage their child … and to learn too!

Children need to learn not to encourage their puppy to do things which will be unacceptable once the dog has grown up such as jumping up and mouthing.
Teaching a child why they shouldn’t take a food bowl or a bone off a dog is as important as teaching puppies and dogs to accept people around their food and toys.
Children will learn how to use kind and effective methods of training with their new pet. You will achieve much more and get a better response from your dog if you work with them using encouragement, praise and rewards to teach them
Kerry did an amazing job with Princess, she does training with her for all our TV performances. She’s also helped our other pup Empress with her recall. Highly recommend!Krystyna LennonObedience, recall & Trick Training
Just had one session so far and Kerry has shown me a lot of good techniques. For the first time in the last week I have a dog that is tired - mentally. Definitely recommend to anyone with a new dog - puppy or not.Caroline `StewartMac - Obedience
Awsome Lady. Her advice was great and solved behaviour problem between my two dogs. Highly recommendedMagdalena BartosiakBehaviour problem
Just attended a 6 week course and found it excellent. I have a very timid pooch who would not be around anyone. The Fairydogmother is patient, knowledgeable, kind and fun. Wonderful display technique of 'how to do sit, stay, leave' etc ...Marie-Claire HallPuppy Class
Absolutely awesome. Very knowledgeable so professional but easily approachable too. My dogs adored her. It's still early days but following her instructions, I can already see a difference. Cannot recommend highly enough. She's AWESOMEJay NeeBehaviour problem
Attended a six week puppy course for my cocker spaniel and I loved it! Charlie had so much fun, Kerry was so patient and gave such good advice and training methods. Charlie is now a well socialised puppy, loves meeting people and new situations which is definitely down to these puppy classes! Such good value for money.Amy BrookCharlie - puppy class
Had a home visit behaviour consultation as our new puppy is very low on confidence and was fab! Kerry is brilliant and I would recommend her to everybody. Took the time to teach my children how to handle our new pup and they are now following her methods.Alex SheffieldHome puppy/children's training
