Experienced Dog Trainer


My name is Muriel Linney and I  have been helping people train their dogs for over 18 years.  I am a full member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers UK (No951), a member of the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC - animal trainer) and a Tellington Ttouch practitioner.  I am an assessor for the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme.  I offer Puppy and dog training classes in the North Tyneside area and Ttouch workshops country wide.  I like to run small training classes where everyone can get individual attention.



The APDT was established in 1995 to give pet owners a guarantee of quality when looking for puppy and dog training classes. To become a member I had to provide evidence of learning theory and undertake a practical assessment. I must adhere to a strict code of practice and can be spot checked at any time to ensure I continue to meet the associations requirements.

The Animal Behaviour and Training Council is a regulatory body which promotes excellence in animal training and behaviour. It is supported by numerous professional organisations  including the BSVA, Dogs Trust and the Blue Cross
