Hello, my name is Laura Halton (CCAB RQF Level 5) and I am passionate about helping dogs and their owners enjoy a strong and positive relationship together. I set up North Surrey Dog Training in 2016, with an aim of helping any owner who has a problem with their dog or wants to further their training, or any prospective owner who is thinking of buying a puppy and the joy that will bring. I am a Certified COAPE Animal Behaviourist (RQF level 5), and I am governed by the code of practice of CAPDT to always use force-free training and to establish and promote EMRA (a technique based on Emotion, Mood and Reinforcement Assessment), during all animal therapy and training. I own a bouncy Tibetan Terrier at home, who gives my family and I lots of joy and fun and who has been my inspiration to work with dogs and their owners.
