Our main goal is to educate more people in modern dog training techniques by using positive reinforcement and reward based methods. These scientifically proven methods can help overcome many unwanted behaviours, preventing behaviour concerns from developing in the future. Alternatively, even if you have no behavioural concerns for your dog, we are more than happy to help to assist you in that process of developing a more meaningful bond between you and your dog. 

Strengthening the Bond Between
You and Your Dog

Have you ever considered starting your own dog walking or training business?

About Adrian

Over the 14 years I have been working with dogs, my passion has always been training dogs and educating people to ensure more dogs have the best possible life. 

I currently have my two rescue dogs called AJ and Jodie. AJ is a staffie cross lurcher who I love to teach new tricks in my spare time. Jodie is currently learning some basic commands but is less enthusiastic about training.

Previously I have worked within Dogs Trust as a dog behaviourist for 8 years. On a daily basis, I would encounter a wide variety of dogs with multiple behavioural problems. Witnessing a dogs transformation during training and working alongside owners I find is an incredibly rewarding experience which I am pursuing further through Build a Bond dog training.

About Fiona

Dog Trainer and walker

I am a life long animal lover, having owned many different animals over the years whilst growing up, but dogs have always been my passion. I currently have 5 dogs (yes I am a crazy dog lady!)​They are all so different and I really enjoy training with them, learning new tricks as well as doing obedience and agility.

Over the years I have had lots of experience with dogs of all shapes and sizes, from high energy (my springer spaniel comes to mind!) to the less energetic and most recently our rescue Betsy who came from Fuerteventura, she suffered with fear and anxiety as well as being very reactive.

I am often asked for advice whilst I'm out and about and i love to be able to help people and their dogs.

 

I have completed courses in Canine Body Language, Canine Reactivity, Rapid Recall 

IMDT Perfect Puppy and 

IMDT Canine First Aid

I am really looking forward to my new career  as a dog trainer and walker with Build A Bond and also getting to know you and your dogs.

About Steve

Dog trainer

I have been working with dogs for over 8 years now starting as a volunteer for both Dogs Trust dog's school in Nottingham and the Loughborough rehoming centre. I have been trained by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and have a qualification in canine psychology as well as being an approved trainer with the Dog Training College. At  the moment I am following a canine behaviour course which is an area of work I want to develop and offer as a service. I have been training a variety of dogs on my own for over four years but  now I am really looking forward to working with the Build a Bond team and helping owners help their dogs. With me is my 8 year old Labrador Dalley who is pretty well behaved most of the time.

About Emily

Dog trainer and daycare asisstant

My love for dogs first started to grow when I was 5 and my family adopted an 8 month old Staffie who I was honoured to know and love for 14 years. I studied Animal Welfare BSc(Hons) at University. Through work experience I got my first ‘proper’ job at a boarding kennels.

 I was then very lucky to be offered a job at Dogs Trust Loughborough, where I have worked for the past 9 years. During my years at Dogs Trust I have learnt a lot about canine behaviour, positive reinforcement and different training techniques through looking after the dogs and helping with their training in order to get them ready for their forever homes. I also adopted my first dog from Dogs Trust, Chuck, an 11 year old Staffie cross.

 

Chuck helped me welcome the first of my two daughters into my life and lived to almost 17. I am now dogless so have to get my dog fix through cuddling all the beautiful dogs that come into the daycare centre.

About Josh

Pet sitter and dog daycare assistant

I am and always have been a massive animal lover, from the times as a child when the only reason I went to my grandparents house was to see their dog Wolfy. 

I have worked and gained experience with dogs over my last 2 years working with build a Bond starting off with pet sitting and then moving onto the daycare and training. I have also worked alongside Adrian and the rest of the team picking up and learning new things everyday. 

I am still striving more and more to learn as much as possible about dog training and how to provide these animals with the best care possible and i love my job and the service i am allowed to provide.

About Paige

Dog groomer and daycare assistant

I have worked with dogs since I was 17 years old and they have been a huge passion of mine since I can remember. There's just something so special about the bond between a human and dog which you can rarely find. 

I have worked for a Dog Boarding Kennels and also for Adrian doing dog walking and training. Now I have finally found my passion in Dog Grooming. I am City and Guild Level 3 qualified and couldn't enjoy it more if I tried! 

I also have a IMDT certification for Dog Training and love to work with dogs and see them progress! I especially love working with puppies as it's super rewarding to see all the training click into place!
