Modern Dog Trainer

new classes coming soon 2022

I'm Jess, a Kent based pet dog trainer who specialises in using ethical, science based training methods. My mission is to help dogs and their humans to build unbreakable bonds, by teaching fun and effective training techniques. My training is designed to aid you in developing your dogs behaviour at home, in company and out in the big wide world. I believe that we can live side by side with our animals and understand each other, the same way we do with our families. It is up to us to teach them and enable them to have a good life, after all, they don't get to choose how they live.


I am an assessed and qualified member of the IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers - www.imdt.uk.com ) and hold an OCN Level 3 Certificate in The Principles of Dog Training and Behaviour. IMDT trainers are to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and only use proven by science  dog training techniques.

We would 100% recommend Waggology and we've had our GSD since he was 8 weeks old and started the training pretty much straight away. Now at 15 weeks old and with a mixture of 1-1 and via zoom throughout lockdown it's been so worthwhile. My fiancé and I are amazed at how much the 3 of us have learned already. We love our homework sheets and really look forward to the next session

Waggology have been amazing giving us all the tools to train our two boys with positive reinforcement. Jess has helped us to become confident dog owners with rocket recall. We plan on future sessions to help one of our boys with his social skills as we are confident in Waggology's training

Jess was wonderful with our dogs and explains things clearly and easy to follow her techniques. Really enjoyable and already we have learned how to interact with our furry friends at a whole new level. Feel great relief that finally and with Jess's guidance and practice we may be able to soon walk our friends without fear of getting an ASBO!




Can I turn up to class without booking?


Unfortunately not. Each class has a set limit of participants to ensure that the numbers are manageable and that each client gets quality coaching. The classes are progressive courses, therefore starting at week 1 through to 6 means everyone progresses together and not joining half way through. 


Can my family come and learn to?

Yes! It's likely that your dog will be looked after by more than one person so it's important that everyone is consistent with how you are raising your dog. To help the dog success, it's best that one person handles the dog at a time, and that distractions are kept to a minimum.

What do I need to bring to my class?

1) Your dog should be wearing a standard collar, clip or buckle type and/or a well-fitting
