Pooch on a Pedestal
You may feel like we did – you really love your dog but can’t find the highly qualified, skilled professionals you could trust. We are already qualified with the DEFRA recommended and OFQUAL recognised Level 3 Dog Welfare, Behaviour and Care and have nearly completed a degree within the same specialist area. We do not use the disproved, old fashioned dominance and aversive techniques but believe strongly in force free, reward based training which is fun for your dog and practised within games.
We are thrilled to have already won the following awards and thank you for all your support.
Prestige Awards Best Pet Care Business in South Wales 2020
UK Enterprise Awards Best Puppy and Dog Training Provider in South Wales 2020
UK Enterprise Awards Excellence Award for Personalised Dog Sleepovers 2020
We are proud to be the only dog walking/dog home visit company accepted onto the Pet Professional Guild due to our expertise and qualifications.
If you want a top dog walker and trainer to totally focus on your dog, frequently interact with him, plan for his individual needs and keep him safe and stress free, you can stop searching. Pooch on a Pedestal is very different.
We have transferred our significant skills from working very successfully as senior leadership teachers to our other lifelong passion – domestic dogs.
We now support the holistic needs of dogs and plan the personalised learning, sensory and physical experiences they need and deserve.
Your dog also needs suitable companionship, enrichment, exercise, play and the chance to behave naturally, dependent on breed, size, age, health and background every day.
If your dog is left alone, it is likely he or she suffers distress. Experts recommend four hours as the maximum time period dogs are left alone.
We cover a wide 10 mile radius from Bassaleg to Chepstow, covering South and Mid Monmouthshire, Newport, Caerwent, Langstone, Devauden, Raglan, Rogerstone, Caerleon, Magor, Caldicot and Usk.
