Empowering people and dogs to live their best lives together

85% of dogs are estimated to exhibit at least one type of problem behaviour.

Behaviour issues are the leading cause of dog’s being surrendered to rescues.

Our dogs are getting a raw deal, and so are their humans!

If you’re struggling with your dog’s behaviour or wondering how to get things right for your puppy from the very start, please know that any problems you’re facing are not your fault.

Societal norms have conditioned us to believe that just 6 weeks of puppy classes are all you need to set your dog up for success. After that, we can expect our dogs to relinquish all their innate dog behaviours and slot seamlessly into our lives.

You’re not being given the right information to help you thrive together!

As the number of dogs in rescue continues to soar, we have to ask why? Why are so many dogs exhibiting behaviour problems? And why are so many owners reaching their wit’s end?




In today’s modern world, we breed dogs and bring them into our homes to be our trusty companions, our happiness inducing confidantes, and our exercise buddies.

We love dogs…. but are we loving them right?

Whilst there’s no denying we’re a nation of dog lovers, there is a big mismatch between the widespread expectations of dog ownership versus the reality.

That Canine Co sets you up for the reality. Empowering you with a profound understanding of your dog, their needs, and how to teach them to behave beautifully. All whilst growing an unbeatable relationship with one another.

Probably the best dog trainer out there!

After having my puppy (George) for a few weeks, I decided it was time to get him some training. I took him to a dog socialisation and training class but something didn’t feel right…. I didn’t feel he was getting the time and 121 dedication he needed.

I contacted Jo and decided to start with a basic training package…. the first session left me baffled as I expected it to be similar to how ‘other’ trainers train dogs…. nope, not Jo!

Jo has certainly impressed me… I have had the best training for my puppy, from probably the best trainer out there.

Jo has managed to toilet train my puppy as well as train him to obey almost all commands. She has also made me realise that it’s not just about training the dogs, but also about training and educating ourselves as dog owners!

Both George and I have had an enjoyable time through the whole training experience which shows that learning can actually be done in a fun way, instead of following a strict, boring and regimented regime.

At That Canine Co, 85% of the training we do is with YOU, the owner.

Whatever behaviour problems may have brought you here, we can help you overcome them with science-based training that pairs dog behaviour with the bigger picture.

When you learn to deeply understand your dog, their needs, and how to train your dog whilst embracing choice, you’re onto a winner!

We’ll teach you how to encourage appropriate expression of your dog’s natural behaviours, so you’re no longer struggling with troublesome (or embarrassing) behaviour!

And most importantly, we’ll help you develop an unwavering bond, so your relationship blossoms.

100% recommended

That Canine Co. changed my dog’s behaviour from the first meeting.

Jo was calm and patient with both of us teaching us both how to work together. Leaving us with tips and ongoing strategies to carry on practising.

Would recommend them 100%

Vicky has given me my life back!

I would not hesitate to recommend Vicky, she has given me my life back!

I contacted her after 2 years of trying to stop my dog chasing my cats. I have recently finished the 90 day programme, where from start to finish Vicky worked with both me and my dog to find the best way to manage the situation, as well as some other issues that have vastly improved as well.

I could never have wished for a better outcome!
