With dog training and puppy socialisation classes held in Portishead and Nailsea and covering North Somerset and Bristol Go Fetch it! was started up by Dog Trainer and Behaviourist Jo Clarke. Go Fetch it! Dog Training caters for individuals wanting private dog training lessons, offers dog training and puppy socialisation classes as well as specialist one to one dog behavioural counselling. Working in association with Golden Valley Vets pet hospital in Nailsea and their surrounding North Somerset branches Go Fetch it can offer modern, reward based dog training methods with back up of veterinary expertise if needed.
I keep up with new methods in modern and reward based training as well as continuing my own professional development in dog training and behaviour though regularly attending courses, seminars and workshops working alongside some of the UK’s top dog trainers and behaviourists, attending training workshops and successfully completing several dog psychology based courses, as well as having my practical dog training and behaviour counselling skills formerly assessed through the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training (CIDBT).
Ultimately life experience cannot be replaced by qualifications and I feel my practical experience of working with dogs and animals is what has heavily contributed to my knowledge and understanding of them which I have today.
On a more personal level, I currently share my life with my doggie best friends, Boots, a challenging but charming Jack Russell Terrier, an adolescent and energetic Dobermann called Mac and Betsy, the sweetest little old lady on the block, a rescue Shih Tzu cross! They are always my best tutors teaching me new things every day about dog psychology, body language and social interactions.
