Change the emotion

​My Favorite Quotes

Positive, force free


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

About Me

Denise Ellis MAPDT 01285

Dogs motivate us to play, be affectionate, seek adventure and be loyal.


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.

More Wag, Less Bark

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.

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

​​​My name is Denise Ellis.  I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse and a qualified Dog Trainer and behaviour adviser.

​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.
