Hello I’m Helen Motteram (BSc Hons), and I run Social Paws as a family business with my husband Tristan (accredited dog trainer and dog owner’s coach). We offer an exceptional service, here to help give the very best long term support for you and your best friend. Through our bespoke success programmes and one to one training walks we get you results with the highest level of integrity.
My journey with my own dog Sally helped me to understand that life as an owner of an anxious dog is not easy. You can’t simply just enjoy the pleasures of a normal walk in the park.
You are often made out to be a bad dog owner or told your is being naughty.
Does this sound familiar?
Your dog is too nervous to leave the house
Walking your dog often leaves you embarrassed, stressed and frustrated
You’ve stopped inviting friends around
You are struggling with your new rescue dog or puppy
