It's a dogs' life...

Guiding Paws is owned and run by Karen Backhouse Bsc (Hons), KPA - CTP #90554, ABTC - ATI, APDT 01026, and specialises in Puppy Education & Clicker Training.  Lessons are fun, innovative and designed to get the best out of owners and dogs.  Each owner works with their dogs on an individual basis with specialised coaching from the trainer.  We welcome and are convenient for dog owners from Alresford, Wivenhoe, Colchester and surrounding areas.
