Hello there! My name is Olivia and I’m a certified and insured dog trainer (CPDT) with a level three qualification in Canine Behaviour and Psychology. I’ve been working with dogs and puppies for a long time, but last year I decided to take the plunge and start my own business.
Working with dogs is genuinely a dream come true for me; I honestly feel so blessed when I can help owners and their furry companions live confident, happy lives together.
I specialise in puppies! I’m a fountain of advice and information to help you and your little one get started off on the right paw. (Sorry). It’s so important to make sure you have the right knowledge and systems in place to ensure you and your dog grow together in the best possible way.
I can also help with other more complicated, ingrained behaviours; such as separation anxiety, aggression, resource guarding, and reactivity to outside stimulus: such as other dogs, children, vehicles etc. While daunting, trust me there are solutions to help your dog or puppy with any and all of these!
Finally, I feel it’s important to say I am a POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT Trainer. I don’t do “corrections” or ask you to behave like the “alpha dog.” It’s all about creating and sustaining a relationship with your pet based on mutual respect and affection.
Every dog is different; but the more your dog loves, respects, and trusts you – the better results you can achieve together.
I have amazing girls who help me run my business. Laura is studying to be a behaviourist, Annie and Isobel are my fabulous dog walkers and Hannah offers dog sitting, boarding and grooming services. They’re ALL dog mad and SO passionate about delivering the best service possible for our clients and their dogs.
At Barks and Bubbles we are proud to offer professional Dog Grooming, Boarding, Sitting and Walking Services throughout the Stockport area.
Our promise is to keep your dog in excellent condition, whether that be a simple wash and nail clip or a full on 'new do', we'll look after your dog grooming requirements as if they were our own.
We've had so many lovely dogs come to us for dog grooming treatments, walks and home boarding and we just LOVE IT!!
For your peace of mind, I am fully insured and DBS checked and am a member of the National Association of Registered Pet Sitters (NARPS).
I have qualifications in animal psychology, pet first aid and CPR as well as a diploma in professional dog grooming.

Hi everyone! My name is Laura and Im a dog trainer - obedience and assistance dog specialist and a student canine behaviourist.
My journey with working with animals began in my early teens working with horses. I became very ill in this period and required an assistance dog to provide practical tasks. I purchased a puppy and independently trained her. After we had finished our training together I decided to open Wild Spirit Dog Training December 2019.
My focus with training is creating the most satisfying bond with your dog possible. Obedience training is not just for working dogs. Teach your dog how to understand cues and the door to communication opens!
I’m also incredibly passionate about making sure your dog has the best daily structure through enrichment and exercise.
My approach is one of kindness, consistency, backed by science and positive reinforcement.
