Hi I'm Hannah, the owner and founder of Fox N Fables Dog Training. Here I am pictured with my there dogs. I reside in Peterborough with my boyfriend Jake, our three dogs; Io, Bigby and Fsmo and my grumpy cat; Bear. I am a massive lover of all animals, previously I have enjoyed such careers with the UK's largest horse/donkey sanctuary, dog kennels and I have even worked as a horse riding instructor. I have grown up with dogs but it was obtaining Io back in 2013 at 7 weeks of age that I really got interested in all things canine! I regularly attend courses and seminars with some of the world's most top dog trainers and behaviourists so I can continue to build up my skills and knowledge - I only want to give the best quality to my training clients. My goals over the next year is to pass my Parkour Instructors assessment and to do some fun classes and workshops.

Io ‘fox’ is a 5 year old Rottweiler crossbreed. Io was my first dog that I bought since leaving home and she came to live with me in September 2013. In the past we have done fun agility, scentwork, both KC and TD RALLY and fun dog shows. Nowadays she is trained to do numerous tricks and also enjoys canine parkour. Io is trained using fun and reward-based methods.

Bigby ‘fable’ is my 3 year old Smooth Collie. The Smooth Collie is one of the UK’s vulnerable dog breeds and for reasons I do not know as they’re a fantastic breed.

I have learnt a lot from Bigby due to his lead reactiveness as a frustrated greeter and feel it has made me a more knowledgeable dog owner. Knowledge is key when owning or being around a reactive dog. He enjoys nothing more than snoozing on the sofa but he also enjoys working for food and he has been a real learning curve to how different teaching individual dogs can be.

Fsmo is our newest addition and he is a 13 month old Shetland Sheepdog. Fsmo is currently learning the foundation aspects of agility and is absolutely loving it. Both his parents are very successful in agility competitions, so I am hopeful that Fsmo will be a great agility dog. He has also shown a keen interest in learning new tricks so I am hoping to gain some titles with him in the not to distant future.
