Confident Canine was set up in 2011 by Emily Crookes, Animal Behaviour Science BSc Hons; a qualified dog trainer and behaviourist with years of experience working with dogs in various areas of training, behaviour, health and welfare. Emily has worked with rescue dogs and has carried out studies into how dogs learn, body language and the effectiveness of different training methods. Emily currently has three of her own dogs who she trains and competes with successfully in both agility, competitive obedience and heelwork to music.


We offer a number of services to the Newark and surrounding areas including one-to-one training, dog walking, pet visits, training classes and specialised behavioural consults, helping you manage problem behaviours. For more details please see the 'services' page.


At Confident Canine we believe in using kind, fair and motivational techniques when doing any training or behavioural work with animals and we will never condone the use of harsh, aversive methods. As more and more of the science behind canine behaviour is being researched, training methods are changing and improving all the time and at Confident Canine we pride ourselves on applying the most modern, effective and stress-free training programmes when working with dogs and other animals.


Please contact us for more details of our services and to find out what we can do for you.
