Our trainers

Sarah Green

Sarah GreenSarah is the owner and founder of Mutleys. She is a member of the Association of Pet Dog trainers (APDT)*, and has been assessed by them and works under their code of conduct to ensure all methods used are fair and gentle and no harsh or punitive methods are used.

Sarah has owned and lived with dogs for 16 years, having initially had a couple of Springer Spaniels and now owning a Working Cocker, Ellie, and a Lowchen, Taya. She has been working with dogs for 11 years having found a love for training and an understanding of them through owning her own dogs.

Sarah originally completed a degree in Psychology, which gives her a good basis for working with people and understanding how people learn. She then trained in Canine Psychology through the Animal Care College at Ascot, an established organisation with Accreditation through the Open College Network.

It is important when training dogs that the owners understand the reasons behind the methods used, with a good background in communication and working with a wide range of people Sarah has developed her training classes to ensure the knowledge of the trainer is passed on and understood to the owner, to enable them to continue the training when out of the classroom.

Sarah is keen to develop further and continue training to stay up-to-date with new ideas to enable her to share this with the owners of the dogs she teaches.

Lisa Gibson

Lisa Gibson and MaxLisa Gibson joined Mutleys in 2009 and has been taking classes since 2010, following a long period of training with Sarah as well as completing a number of courses through the Association of Dog Training and Behaviour and currently working towards APDT membership.

Lisa has also completed a degree in Psychology and has a background in Human Resources, which has helped her to gain good people skills enabling her to communicate effectively with a wide range of people.

Lisa has applied to be assessed by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers to become APDT registered.

Louise Perry

Louise PerryLouise graduated from Hartpury College in 2013, with a FdSc (Merit) in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. Her studies specialised in Companion Animal Behaviour which complimented her passionate interest in dogs.

Louise joined Mutleys in 2014 as Sarah’s assistant and also works one day a week at Bristol Zoo as an Animal Ranger. Louise is a member of the Kennel Club and at present is working towards the Kennel Club Accreditation Scheme for Instructors in Dog Training (KCAI). Alongside this Louise will also apply to the Association of Pet Dog trainers and obtain their assessed registration (she likes to keep busy!)

Louise has extensive experience within the public services industry whilst working with adults with challenging behavior. So interpersonal skills, communication and problem solving are a walk in the park…

What our clients say

If you are looking for a relaxed but educational workshop this is definitely for you.
She adds her encouragement, enthusiasm and expertise to make the sessions thoroughly enjoyable.
Small classes, a friendly atmosphere and lots of reward-based hard work have made this a weekly experience my baby pug Eddie and I look forward to. Highly recommended.
The puppy classes with you have been a complete success right from the off. You were recommended by a few people and have not disappointed.
