Vets Corner

We do not offer veterinary advice. If you are worried about your pet's health, please speak to your vet. The information on this page is aimed at vets requiring our services.

CPD Talks

From half day seminars or evening lectures to 15 minute 'coffee break' talks. Bells and Whistles can offer talks and workshops on a range of animal training & behaviour topics. At present, we are offering online sessions only. For example:

  • Running a puppy party
  • Reducing in clinic aggression
  • Cat stress
  • Principles of animal training
  • Introducing a new pet
  • Neutering from the behaviour counsellors perspective

Puppy Parties

We are happy to run puppy socialisation parties at your clinic as an added service for your clients. We can run parties either as a one off or on a regular basis. Before your first party we will arrange a meeting to discuss puppy numbers, frequency of parties and training methods used. Topics covered include socialisation with people, dogs and environments, housetraining, puppy biting, play and training. We also offer staff training for puppy parties if you would prefer to keep them in-house.

Behavioural Referral Service

If you have a client you feel would benefit from behavioural advice, you can refer them to us directly by completing a referral form. Please ensure your client knows we are going to call them and that their correct telephone number is on the referral form. You can also ask your client to call us, we will then send them a referral form which they will ask you to complete. Please send the client history with the referral form as this can often help us diagnose a behavioural issue or formulate a timeline for the behaviour issue.

What our clients say…

 Jenny has been great training Jack & Jill, from day one I have seen improvements and they are a joy to live with; I have never had such well trained dogs. Jenny has been really patient and has helped me find ways to train the puppies around my commitments, even taking them for intensive training when I have been busy studying. Two puppies at once may not have been the best idea, but Jenny has helped me make it work and I wouldn't trade them for the world 

Annette Garman

 Thank you for the help you have given me with the training of Otto. I hope that your business goes from strength to strength as you are an excellent teacher. 

Sophie Hearnden

 Jenny has been an invaluable part of our lives since we bought our first ever puppy. The puppy and improver classes gave us the skills needed to help develop our puppy into a wonderfully rounded, sociable and fun dog to be with. Jenny's knowledge, patience and calm nature is so reassuring for us and we look forward to her classes every week as our one year old grows from strength to strength in her training - not to mention how much fun our lively dog has in her classes, she simply adores Jenny! We also use Jenny's dog sitting and walking services, which is an amazing resource to be able to call upon. Jenny is 100% trustworthy, reliable and caring - a combination that is as valuable as gold dust. Suffice to say we feel sorry for people that don't have Jenny in their lives. 

Louise & Chris Full with Bella

 A fun learning experience for my puppy, he has turned into a very well-mannered dog thanks to the help of the puppy classes 

Emily Pearce

 Thank you so much for coming today. We are really impressed with your ideas and we can see Bella is already responding. 

Jane Green

 Jenny is very good. Has been much help to me and Rio 

June Goff

 Very good introduction to obedience for Emerson, but excellent learning for us on how to teach him. 

Ashley

 Jenny's improver classes were fantastic for my lively rescue dog, Sam. Her patience and understanding with both of us, and innovative approaches to his behavioural issues have been invaluable. Sam is now a much calmer, happier dog who adores Jenny! 

Jenny Newson

 Jenny's dog training classes were excellent. Her clear and calm approach worked well with our excitable puppy 

Claire Pettit

 Jenny came to meet our puppy Milo as he was scared of other dogs and displaying signs of separation anxiety.  Jenny spent an hour with us, and gave us some tips of how to help Milo work things out.  Namely, introduced tasty treats, of cheese and chicken/ ham pieces, playing "find it", and distracting him when other dogs are approaching, and so on. We followed Jenny's advice to the letter, and he is now doing brilliantly! He looks at other dogs, and greets appropriately, then looks to me for a treat, knowing he has done well!
