More Wag, Less Bark

​​​My name is Denise Ellis.  I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse and a qualified Dog Trainer and behaviour adviser covering Colchester, Chelmsford, Maldon, Braintree and Witham Essex.

I offer 1:1 training or group classes, Workshops and Agility in Chelmsford Essex and Woodham Walter, Maldon Essex.

​I have two rescue dogs, Sam, a West Highland White Terrier and Colin, a Welsh Collie. We enjoy walks in our beautiful countryside close to our home in Tiptree Heath Essex. Both Sam and Colin also enjoy the Suffolk coast and hill walking in the north of the country. 

Competing with Colin at agility is also very enjoyable and rewarding.

I love socialisation classes and early training classes with the puppies, preventing problem behaviours before they become learnt behaviours.

I particularly enjoy working with rescue dogs, helping them settle to their new way of life can be challenging.

Dogs do not speak English, they have their own body language to communicate.  It is up to us to learn  and understand this. Change the emotion and you will change the behaviour.

Positive, force free

Every dog deserves a home.  Not every home deserves a dog.

All my training is positive and force free.  Simply, dogs will do what works for them.  I use evidence based methods.


He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.

You are his life, his love, his leader.

He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.
