Founder and Director of Puppy School, Gwen Bailey, set up Puppy School in 2002 to help owners give their puppies the best possible start in life.

'Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Maria!! We have learnt so much over the last 6 weeks and Doug has loved every minute of it! As mentioned to you today Doug managed to escape through our front door a few days ago and bolted straight up the road but, as we use the PS recall technique on a regular basis, when I used it, he came running straight back to me...which is amazing!! Thank you.' 

Becky Tong and the wonderful Doug The Pug

About Us

Hi, I'm Maria and I own Train Me and My Dog with my husband, Steve. After a lifetime of owning and loving dogs, I trained to become a Puppy School Trainer, fulfilling a lifelong ambition and began a successful training school in the Birmingham area. Now, happily relocated to the beautiful Shropshire countryside, I'm excited to be launching Train Me and My Dog in Market Drayton from January 2019, with my hubby, Steve, as my willing assistant.

I offer fully force-free, reward-based dog training and puppy training in Market Drayton, mainly, in 6 week courses and our course syllabus is ABTC accredited; the regulatory body for animal training in the UK.

I keep up to date and current by attending courses on dog training and behaviour, reading new literature, watching webinars and following well known and successful trainers/behaviourists and I'm also a Raw Advisor for Natures Menu.

I have been involved with the dog-rescue world, carrying out  assessments of dogs coming into rescue and performing home assessments in order to carefully match potential owners with a dog seeking its forever home.

Due to this passion for rescuing, two of my own dogs, Cassie and Holly, pictured with me above, are rescues and I have two further pooches, another GSD, Bria and my latest addition, Cooper, a miniature Labradoodle. Every booking made with me will result in a donation being made to a local animal rescue, on your behalf.

I'm also an Administrator with Positive Puppy Training and Advice, an online, FB page providing advice and guidance for puppy owners with over 14,000 members worldwide.

I'm fully insured and really looking forward to working with you all.

Please don't hestitate to contact me for an informal chat regarding your needs or any way in which we can help you and your dog.

'We have had the best experience. We have learnt so much and seem to have a wonderfully confident, relaxed and content puppy. Can’t thank Maria enough for her help and support!' 

Telisha Jenkinson & clever, tiny boy, Pepe
