Meet Jayne Matthews

jayne sitting on rocksJayne is the founder and primary animal behaviourist/dog trainer with 4 Paws Training

 

All of her life Jayne has been passionate about the welfare and behaviour of dogs. Following a long and varied career Jayne was made redundant. This was to be the catalyst that prompted Jayne to launch 4 Paws Training. Her clients are now benefitting from Jayne’s extensive knowledge and expertise, which is delivered in a fun and friendly way.

 

As soon as you meet Jayne you will know that you’re talking to someone with genuine empathy with you and your dog. “It’s no good just looking at the problem” says Jayne. “It’s important to take a holistic and individual approach to each dog I work with. This way I can pinpoint the underlying cause of your dog’s poor behaviour and provide a tailor-made action plan. I see myself as one of your team – helping you and your dog to be the best team you can be.”

 

Jayne believes that owning a dog can be one of life’s most rewarding experiences. She’s here to help you and your dog enjoy each other. Jayne believes passionately, that a well behaved dog is essential, but she also feels that dog behaviour training should be affordable to everyone. That’s why Jayne offers quality training but without the designer price tag!
