A Victoria Stilwell trainer - 1 of only 8 in the uk. A COAPE behaviour advisor and an APDT member no 308.

The Dog House Academy was established in 1995 and it is owned and run by Shelley Heading. Shelley decided to study dog training and behaviour after becoming disheartened at classes she attended with her puppy Weimaraner, Dooley.

Those classes were either using harsh punitive methods resulting in the breakdown of trust between her and her puppy, or were too large and overcrowded with no individual attention.

Shelley was inspired to study all about our canine friends and was lucky enough to undertake one of the late John Fisher’s courses – a pioneer in positive reinforcement training and passed with a distinction.

Other qualifications include:

Advanced management of cats and dogs,
Advanced nutrition of cats and dogs
Diploma in Companion Animal Care
APDT Instructor Course
Basic Grooming
COAPE Behaviour Advisor
VSPDT Trainer
and many more

Shelley is a Victoria Stilwell Positive Dog Trainer (VSPDT), handpicked by Victoria and one of only 8 in the UK.
