About Lucy

About Dees Dogz Dog Walker Shrewsbury

Hello I’m Lucy!

I’ve always been a huge dog lover but didn’t get the opportunity to have my own until I had a change of career to become a dog trainer.

Wooster, my wonderful Airedale Terrier puppy came first in the summer of 2019. Oscar, my very enthusiastic about everything Working Springer Spaniel x Collie puppy arrived from rescue six months later. Together they keep me entertained and busy!

Having spent 10 years working on set in the film industry, in 2018 I decided to make a change and learn something new. I began squirrelling away at courses and reading lots of books and papers on all things dog! I soon learnt that the dog training and behaviour industry is completely unregulated, anyone can give themselves the title of dog trainer and behaviourist without any qualifications or experience.

As I like to do things properly I made sure I learnt, and still learn, through credible organisations that teach the latest in canine behaviour science and hold their members up to a strict code of ethics.

My journey to become a qualified trainer was with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT). I passed my assessment with distinction in August 2020 and achieved an OCN Level 3 in Principles of Dog Training and Behaviour.

Shortly after this I qualified as a Mantrailing UK Instructor, teaching pet dogs to find a specific missing person. I’m now working towards a Level 5 diploma in Canine Behaviour with the International School of Canine Phycology, and a Level 3 diploma in Galen Myotherapy.

The learning journey never stops and I’m always taking part in webinars and continuing my reading to further my knowledge and provide you with the best I can.

Happy Clients!

“Lucy is amazing!!

My dog has come on leaps and bounds since she started with Lucy!

Lucy is always accommodating and always put her clients first.

She keeps me updated with photos and videos after every session.

I know that when she’s with Luna, she treats her with as much love and care as I do.

Lucy takes the time to make sure every relationship with a dog is personal.

She is fantastic!”
