GET UPDATES FROM Louise Glazebrook
 
I am one of the leading urban dog trainers and behaviourists living and working in London and founder of The Darling Dog Company. I live in Hackney with my husband, baby son and deaf bulldog. In the last few years, I have become the go to dog trainer and behaviourist for dogs owners in the capital – whether it’s working as a senior Trainer with the Dogs Trust, promoting responsible dog ownership in London's inner city estates to helping Lara Stone prepare her Border Terrier Bert for the arrival of her baby and finding Nick Grimshaw a suitable rescue Jack Russel pup.

My own love of dogs started when I was three years old and Rory the Golden Retriever came into my life. It was love at first sight and our four legged friends have been a formative part of my life ever since. It wasn’t long before my career as a play researcher for the retail toy industry lead back to my true passion and vocation – making dogs the centre of everything I do. I began training with the renowned dog trainer John Rogerson – a pioneer in positive reward training methods. I am a member of the KCAI scheme for trainers and behaviourists in the UK.

Today, my mission is to offer my clients an unrivalled service, promoting fun and constructive training methods to ensure the best possible dog-owner relationship – specialising in urban environments. I have spent my career in London and understand from living here with my own dogs and a host of foster dogs, that our city companions and their owners face an entirely different set of challenges to those elsewhere.

In addition to my private one on one training, classes and workshops, I also offer consultancy to companies who would like to understand dogs and their owners need better. I have worked with the likes of Lilys' Kitchen diner, Holly&Lil, East End Best Friend and You Me Bum Bum Train!

I work across London and would love to hear from you.

Following the terrible arson attach at a Manchester dog home last week, where 53 poor dogs lost their lives, it's been incredible to see the generous, heartfelt response in the press and on social media. Many dog lovers across the UK have pulled together and raised an unbelievable £1million to...

Is the Dog Ban in Public Venues Helpful?

(0) Comments | Posted 17 June 2014 | (14:43)

So I have been given notice on the venue I use at the moment for my puppy classes in Dalston. Their reasoning is that they can get someone else in who can pay more money than I can. Which I understand, they are running a business as am I.

Paparazzi and Putting Down a Pet: Why the Two Should Never Meet

(2) Comments | Posted 20 November 2013 | (00:00)

There is a lot of debate about whether celebrities deserve to have their private lives aired to the public. Some are accused of courting and the publicity and intrusion, but in this case, I feel that press intrusion is a step too far.

Ashton Kutcher and his fiancee Mila Kunis...

This week I am in Turkey, starting some writing and so I thought instead of doing a dog of the week as I haven't been working with any in the last few days, I would introduce you to the Turkish Kangal or Anatolian Shepherd dog.

Obama Comes Out Against Breed Specific Legislation

(0) Comments | Posted 21 August 2013 | (23:19)

Tonight the American Kennel Club tweeted a statement from The White House, in which President Obama stated "that breed specific legislation is a bad idea". It is not surprising that the AKC are enthused about his words. To have the President's support on such a controversial topic is no mean...

Today the Government has announced a number of proposals for sentencing owners of dangerous dogs that kill or injure someone. I wanted to write this post ahead of another dog attack taking place, ahead of the knee jerk reactions that invariably follow. It's supposed to protect us - dogs, owners...
