Dog School Leicestershire

Welcome to Dog School Leicestershire! Our experienced and dedicated team are here to help you build and develop a trusting, long-lasting bond with your dog by developing your understanding of how dogs communicate and learn. Using fun and effective reward-based methods, we will show you how to teach your dog the skills needed to cope with the demands of everyday life.

We offer classes for puppy, adult and rescue dogs as well as one to one training to help with common problems such as pulling on the lead, jumping up and recall. We pride ourselves on being approachable and empathetic, and providing a relaxed and supportive learning environment for owners and dogs.

Trainers' profiles

Since gaining her degree, Kirsty has had a varied career with animals. She has worked in Africa and Borneo as a researcher, working with animals such as lions, leopards and orangutans. She later moved on to working for the Dogs Trust as a Canine Carer with a particular interest in training the dogs she worked with, to help with their rehabilitation. She also helped to support owners by enhancing their understanding of their dog’s training needs during the first stages of the homing process. Most recently, she worked for herself offering one to one training with owners and their dogs.

Our coach, Rose Clark, has recently graduated from university with a degree in Animal Behaviour. Rose has worked with a range of dogs, which included running her own dog sitting service from 11 years old to then working with the West Midlands Police dog section more recently.


Dogs have always played a huge part in her life which is also shown through the rescue of her own Dogs Trust dog, Murphy, a black lab cross in 2011, who has certainly tried and tested the range of her training ability!

Ciara completed her Master’s degree in Zoology at Bristol University, where her dissertation focused on dog-human relationships and canine play. Since then she has worked as a CC2 Trainer at Dogs Trust Loughborough, running an enrichment programme and leading volunteer training. She’s excited about teaching creative ways to provide physical and mental stimulations, and improving owners’ relationships with their dogs.


At home, Ciara has a cheeky German Spitz called Mylo. When he isn’t demanding fuss you might find her sewing, or playing with her three chinchillas.
