Satisfied Owners. Happier Pets.
I think you realise, Alison, that Zoschia and I would have parted company some time ago if I didn't have your guidance, training and support. You have inspired confidence in myself.....and shown we can make progress.
First time Dog Owner
Thanks for giving me the guidance, it's amazing how going about things the right way changes his approach. He has really enjoyed all his little training sessions and gets really excited when he thinks we are going into the garden to do something. I think its all really good for our relationship.
Rescue Border Collie Owner
If it wasn't for Alison's loving, inventive and personalised reward based training and her sanity saving agility lessons, I would have given up with my Border Collie many times over. Alison cared for me as much as my dog and she made me feel I was part of a team with her to succeed - which we did. You don't just get a trainer with Alison, you and your dog get a lifetime's investment.

Who Am I ?
WHY YOU CAN FEEL CONFIDENT ABOUT CHOOSING ME AS YOUR TRAINER
My name is Alison Burns and I'm the founder and trainer of Wonderwoofsdogs. Growing up with Spaniels and now having Border Collies and cross breeds I've got a wide breadth of dog experience.
I left University with an Honours Degree in education and have been teaching in some capacity or other for over 35 years; I am always searching for new and better ways to train dogs and to help owners resolve issues that occur. I am enrolled with the the School of Canine Science who offer me constant challenges to improve and learn from current scientific studies and research.
My own dogs compete at a high level of agility and we can be found most weekends running round courses, getting out of breath and generally having great fun.
I train at least twice a week for agility with a member of the British Agility team and a top class Agility Club GB trainer so that we can keep up to date and well skilled.
My retired dogs are now very engaged with scent work, which uses their enormous skill set of nose work and brain power. It means they can still learn and feel mentally stimulated without such physical exertion.
We train with the World Scent Dog Association with whom I am an accredited trainer and judge.
I am a registered Mantrailing UK Instructor helping to train pet dogs to find the fun in finding missing people
