© 2017 WAGGING TAILS Dog Training (East Anglia)
WAGGING TAILS Dog Training (East Anglia) was founded by Vera Marney in 2014 who has also been running her dog training school in South London for over 10 years (www.wtdt.co.uk). After moving to Norfolk, she is keen to follow the same path again in East Anglia and establish a new training school following the same principles of positive reward based training for dogs of all breeds and ages.
Vera Marney has 30 years of training experience having joined her first club at 14 years old. She has a degree in Canine Behaviour and Training and is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (www.apdt.co.uk) as well as a full member of the Pet Professional Guild (www.petprofessionalguild.com).
Vera is also an approved trainer for Dog A.I.D. helping owners train their own assistance dogs via the Dog A.I.D. Charity.
Vera has four dogs:
Flash, a 13-year old rescue Saluki, also enjoyed a bit of competitive obedience and agility, but unfortunately due to degenerative disc disease he is not allowed to do either of them anymore, so he now sticks to some fun training and pet obedience. He also achieved all his KCGC Awards up to Gold.
Jesse, a 10-year old American Cocker Spaniel, is a keen competitor in obedience and also loves having a go at agility now and again. He has won out of Beginners and is now competing with the big boys in Novice and Test A at obedience shows.
Skye, 6 years old, is a rescue Cocker Spaniel (show type x working type) and is loving her agility training and is getting ready for her time in the competition ring. She also does a bit of competitive obedience and will have a go at some gundog work this year!
Blake, a 3-year old saluki x greyhound, was found as a stray in the local area and was looking for a home. He has a very playful nature and loves training. He is getting ready to compete in competitive obedience.
(The big white fella in the picture on the left is Troy, a rescue Pyrenean Mountain Dog and the cream lurcher next to him is Dylan. They are both unfortunately no longer with us.)
