History of UKdogtrainers

UKdogtrainers is run as a sister site to LocalPetPeople.

This all started with DogBasics, a site for my dog training classes and dog boarding. I used to keep a list of fellow dog sitters on the DogBasics site, but it grew so much, it was getting difficult to manage. In June 2005 I created a separate web site for dog sitters to advertise on and I called it UKdogsitters.co.uk. A year on, in July 2006, the UKdogsitters.co.uk site had grown so much, incorporating pet services from dog sitting to grooming to pet rescue, that the name didn't fit the content any more and so it was renamed to LocalPetPeople.com. In October 2007, a handful of additional sites were created to work in association with LocalPetPeople: UKdogwalkers.co.uk, UKdogtrainers.co.uk, UKhousesitters.co.uk, UKsmallpets.co.uk and UKdogsitters.co.uk (now a separate site again).

The idea with the group of LocalPetPeople sites, is for you to be able to easily find a local pet service, where ever you are, whether it be in your local area, or local to the area you are visiting. Maybe you've gone on holiday somewhere and need a vet or groomer urgently?!

I hope you'll find your local pet service via one of our sites and that the service they offer will be of a very high standard.

We do not vet the pet services advertised on this site, nor will we match you with your pet service. You will have to use your own discretion and find out the background, set up and cost of their services. LocalPetPeople can not be held responsible for the quality of the services offered from the people advertising on this site.

How to research your dog trainer...

I would suggest that you go out and watch a lesson at your new dog training place, without your dog, the first time. Just so that you can see that the techniques they use are to your liking and there is no risk of your dog having a bad experience, if they are not. I've heard so many horror stories of people bringing their nervous little puppies to their first lessons and the puppy has been seriously scared by barking dogs in the village hall where the training took place, or the trainer was heavy handed with them, or they didn't get the protection they needed.

If the training club doesn't allow you to come out and watch a class, I would get rather suspicious and give them a miss.
