My name’s Lesley, I’m an experienced canine professional, trainer and coach, specialising in dog behaviour with a particular interest in reactivity, based in Leigh and covering the surrounding areas.
I am pleased to be able to offer my services, to help and support companion dog owners struggling with problematic behaviours.
My aim and my passion is to build confidence and trust, improve communication and increase understanding, providing the person with the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve a happy and mutually rewarding relationship with their dog.
The type of behaviour training I offer focuses on everyday life skills. I use positive reinforcement techniques in everything I do based on up to date proven scientific principles, simply the kindest and most effective way for dogs to learn. Reward based methods ensure that dogs are motivated to learn and that the whole process is enjoyable for them and therefore long lasting. I will never promise a quick fix solution to a behaviour problem, there is no such thing; quick fixes are temporary and can have long term negative effects on a dog’s wellbeing. Having respect and care for the dog and the individual is my top priority.
Working with me is not hard work, it is simple. Think of it as an investment in your relationship with your dog; you are investing in the small moments, your dog’s happiness, the life you want to share with your dog.
I am fully qualified and insured.

Attending classes with Lesley has been a wonderful experience for us. Not only have we learned training techniques but it has also aided with bonding...
