Dog trainer scoops award for best in specialist dog training services

Leamington Editorial 3rd Jun, 2022   0

A DOG trainer and behaviour advisor from Leamington has been named the best specialist dog training services in the region.

Hannah Antrobus, owner of Pawsitively Pawsome Pups, scooped the Central England title for her services offered to spaniel and spaniel mix owners.

Hannah’s business is the first with a spaniel specific online training membership, the Spaniel Inner Circle, which now has 150 members across the world.

The win is her second in a row, coming just 12 months after being crowned Best in Online Pet Training Services in Central England by Prestige.

She founded Pawsitively Pawsome in 2017 and has since worked with dogs and their owners in Warwickshire, nationally and internationally in person, and also via video call.

She launched the Spaniel Inner Circle last summer after noticing a need for spaniel specific dog trainers across the globe and having a huge influx of spaniel and spaniel mix enquiries.

Hannah said: “To be recognised for this award, less than 12 months after starting the Spaniel Inner Circle is incredible.

“I felt completely overwhelmed with enquiries and without cloning myself I didn’t know how else I could help others. That’s when I had a lightbulb moment and came up with the idea of the spaniel inner circle.

“I created the Inner-circle because it’s a way for me to give help to Spaniel owners fast and share my knowledge and experience.”

Prestige Awards celebrate the businesses and individuals who consistently offer products and services to people.

The judges praised Hannah for her efforts to ensure she always has the most up to date training techniques, and her unique, personal and transformational approach to dog training.

Hannah added: “My own experience of being a spaniel owner drove me to specialising in spaniels, I know how it feels to wish your dog had an off-switch, but once you understand the breed and work with the right training techniques a calm, well-behaved spaniel is possible!

“It is such an honour to have won and I couldn’t have done it without the people who support me in the spaniel inner circle, I love to help them with their spaniel breeds.”
