I'm Phil, a dog trainer and dog walker living in Sholing, Southampton and adore dogs whether walking them, training them or simply just watching them interact with life.

I am passionate about rescue dogs, puppies and trying my best to make sure I help as many dogs as possible to have the best start in life and for the unfortuante ones that don't have that great start but are given a second chance with a new forever family, I want to be able to support both dogs and owners.

I have had a mix of breeds over the last 20+ years from small to large, Staffies, terriers, Springers and pointers, all rescue dogs, all different in their ways but one thing in common, they love walkies time. My latest project is a wonderful Spanish Podenco who we will all adore and will get the best life down here on the southc coast.

I got into full time dog training and dog walking when offered redundancy and did the classic, swapping a stressful London work life to follow my passion of working outdoors with dogs. It has turned out to be the best decision and more, even on a wet, cold and windy day in January.

I have done dog training certificates, through the international academy and the National Dog training academy with the wonderful Sandra Lawton and her amazing team. I never stop learning and the next venture I am adding to my training abilities will be Fun dog, gun dog taking all the behaviours and skills  but without the actual shoot. 


Feel free to give me a call or drop me an email for an initial chat and we can arrange a home visit to meet and see how I can help your dog become a Wagalot dog.


Dog walking


The 1hr service is the most popular and I use many areas of Southampton for walks such as Manor farm, Queen Victoria country park, Knowle park and Old golf course, Eastleigh as well as local parks to your home for shorter walks and puppy walks.

I walks in groups up to 5 dogs dependent on size of the dogs with me that day.

I am fully insured with DBS certificate and animal first aid qualified.

My dog walking service includes:

  • Pick up and drop off service

  • A walk on or off lead, subject to the location and situation. I will only do on lead initially till your dog and I have built our mutual trust together.

  • Fresh water always available.

  • Shower down and towel dry, if required before returning home to you.

  • All dog walks have post walk updates to give you peace of mind, with photos if possible.

  • I meet all owners and dogs prior to taking them on to discuss walk options, which other pets can walk with your dog and ensure we are all happy with the plan.

  • Big, small, puppy or older Dogs will all get the best walk suited to their need. I do Country walks, sensory sniffy walks. beach walks in the winter season, single dog walks. Hikes in the hills and general park walks.

I believe in ensuring as many pups and young dogs are given the best chance as they join us in our homes and strive to pass on as much knowldege and support to my customers so that we do not have to face into dogs being abandoned or given up for rehoming but through good core behaiours and manners they lead a long and loving family time.

Sadly though there are many cases where yound dogs are needing rehoming for all sorts of reasons. I will always offer my services to help the wonderful people that give a place in their homes to bring back a wag and a smile to these dogs 

I work using modern positive reinforcement and rewards approaches that will stimulate and encourage your dogs to develop the skills we ask of them in our world. I train the trainer, which means I train you to have the skills, techiques and tools to understand your dog and have a confident, comfortable and well behavoured family member.

I provide three different training options that deliver the most benefits

  • Puppy and young dog classes As long as they have had their 2nd jabs they are all welcome at my training field in Otterbourne.

      These are 6 weekly classes with lots of interactive tasks and socialising          for your young one.​​

  • 1 2 1 Dog and puppy training sessions - A great way for a more focused approach where I can spent more time supporting you either across the full range of behaviours or fine tuning a specific need.

  • Walk and train - I combine dog walks with training specifics such as lead walking and recall. I can do this with or without their owners present and fits perfectly for my customers that are time poor but still require their dogs to have the best doggy manners.
