Get to Know Us
I am Kirsty, I run Brilliant Barkers, I have two lovely miniature poodles, Morgan and Merlot! My passion is to help adults and children enjoy their lives with their dogs creating a true lasting bond and understanding, based on kindness and respect.
I am a mum, have professional dog training qualifications and am a school teacher, as well as an animal lover. I have a full DBS, which allows me to safely work with children and public liability insurance. I now use my love of teaching to help you with your dog or support your child to really communicate and understand your dog. I love seeing the spark when a child, or adult learns something new. It is no different from the joy evident when a dog makes a really good choice and is rewarded for it!
I help you live your best life with your dog! Give us a call and we can help you!
I have trained with Absolute Dogs and so offer a fun, games based dog training programme for dogs and owners, I know you will have lots of fun learning in a relaxed, non- judgemental and friendly way. I have always loved training dogs, having started very early, as a child, and really enjoy 'bringing out the best' in them!

Our Dog Training
We provide in- person 1:1 in home dog training, online dog training courses and bespoke dog and puppy training courses to improve your dog's behaviour. We work with any dog and have a large variety of dogs on our books from Chihuahuas to German Shepherds - you name it -we can help you and your dog!
We listen to your needs and then offer a range of tried and tested fun games and training for you and your dog which improve a whole range of behaviour struggles your dog might be having and deepens the dog's relationship with you, or any other family member or friend.
If you have children who would like to feel more confident and enjoy learning how to train their dog please contact us. The emphasis is on the dog making positive choices and being rewarded, as well as your child, which builds strong relationships. Your child learns about dog body language, learns a range of commands and how to understand what your dog needs.
If your dog pulls on the lead, struggles to recall, barks inappropriately, worries about new places, things and people, struggles with travelling or novelty, bites, guards its food, is aggressive to other dogs or people or has any other struggles, then please contact us!
