The Important Bit…

My training classes are fun and follow reward based methodology.

I hold Puppy Obedience Classes, Older Dog Training Classes, Puppy Socialising parties and one to one behaviour consultations in the privacy of my own secure field.

A little bit about me! 

I have been breeding, mentoring breeders, dog socialising & training since 2000.  I decided to move forward with my canine training qualification and finally opened officially in July 2019.

Dogs are my absolute passion for the last 40 years. I have never been without a Dog, having a Westie, a King Charles, two Rottweilers.  I am now currently own 4 Cockapoos  and a Show Cocker Spaniel.  Of course I should mention my two beautiful cats who are also part of my ‘crew’.

Training Location:

We are fortunate to have purchased an old farm up in North Featherstone, which came with 5 acres of land so our dogs have plenty of space and lots of exercise / game time.  It really was a dream come true!  This is where I hold my Dog Training classes and I have a secure car park for all visitors and CCTV for safety.  

My other passion in life:

I am best known as ‘Whiskeys Cockapoos‘, currently one of the best known, council licensed Cockapoo in-the-home breeders in England.  Popular for my passion for the puppies and the owners that take them.  My puppies are all raised inside my home throughout their lives with me but also they receive extensive training and socialising before they leave!

I am also the owner of Parkfield Dog Park.  My dream was to create the perfect doggy playground!  We are the first private dog field covering the Wakefield 5 Towns area, West Yorkshire. 
Parkfield Dog Park is a secure, enclosed 1 acre field, perfect for your rascals to explore and available for sole use hire. The field is ideal for dogs that cannot be let off lead in public places, that does not enjoy the company of other dogs or may be recovering from an operation/illness.
