Paws 4 Training offer many classes suitable for puppies from when they are fully vaccinated to older dogs. All our training is reward based and we encourage clicker training in all of our classes.
Naomi Farrow, Paws 4 Training is an ADTB qualified dog trainer with over 8 years experience offering professional Dog Training in South Norfolk. She lives in Hempnall with her husband Rob and their daughter Paige and their three black Labradors; Harley 11 years, Phoenix 8 years and Bumble Bee 3 years.
Harley was her first dog and was her reason for setting up Paws 4 Training. He had an horrific start to his life and through training she has built up Harley’s trust in people to ensure he feels safe and now has a fantastic life with his two “brothers” and best friends Phoenix and Bumble.
Naomi brought Phoenix home at 9 weeks of age. Phoenix has helped Harley to build up his confidence and they are best of friends. Phoenix is very laid back and is excellent with other dogs. He is sometimes used in puppy classes to get the puppies accustomed to an older dog or he is used as a “stooge dog” for 1-2-1 training for dogs that need the influence of a calm dog.
Bumble Bee joined the family in November of 2014, he was 17 weeks. He was rehomed from another family and very quickly adapted to being in a multi-dog household, Harley is Bumble’s shadow and follows him everywhere. Naomi is using Bumble to develop her training skills so these can be used within the training classes. They have attended clicker gun dog training classes and Bumble also has been doing agility for two years and has been doing flyball training for the last year.
Vicki Utting joined our team in November 2014 assisting Naomi with the Puppy Life Skills training classes. Vicki obtained the ADTB Instructors qualification in 2015. Vicki teaches alongside Naomi in the Puppy Training classes and also teaches bronze and silver obedience courses and assists with the gold classes and the training workshops. Vicki has gained experience with many breeds during her time teaching at Paws 4 Training and has a great rapport with clients and their dogs. Vicki is a fantastic asset to my business. Vicki has two Springer Spaniels, Marley 3 years and Lacey 2 years.
