Jenny Trigg, DipCABT, PPG, PPN, MGODT, PAACT

Founder, Company Director & Head Trainer, Ewhurst Surrey

Jenny founded Adolescent Dogs in 2006 and is one of the Company Directors. To date, she has helped to train over 8,000 dogs and their owners.  

 

Jenny has been assessed by the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers and passed her 2nd Grade.  She is also an approved member of the Guild of Dog Trainers (GODT) as a Master Trainer, is a Certified Pro Dog Trainer, holds membership with the Professional Association of Applied Canine Trainers, a member of the Pet Professional Guild for Force Free Dog Trainers, a Professional Member of the Pet Professional Network and is a Dog Training College Approved Instructor.

 

Jenny lives with her partner Mike, 6 dogs, 2 cats & 2 children (6yr and 3 yr) in rural Ewhurst with over an acre of land to train on, backing onto Polo fields - which offer hundreds more acres.

 

Jenny & her partner Mike offer limited opportunities for dogs to learn with them on the Intensive Courses or the One to One Programmes. They are passionate about using reward-based training.

 

Jenny is a Certified Pro Dog Trainer with Absolute Dogs, so uses a game based approach to training, making training fun and learning fast!  All training is done using treats, toys, games, life rewards and lots of praise to ensure your dog enjoys their stay and learns effectively whilst maintaining high welfare standards. They only take in 1 to 2 dogs each for training, so are able to offer a more personal and exclusive training service.

Their own dogs include a 9 year old Rottweiler (Hades), 2 Pugs (Batman and Spyder Pug), 2 Chinese Crested (Pavlov and Hero) and a Mini Xoloitzcuintli (Mexican Hairless called Bullseye). They also foster dogs for New Dawn Malinois Rehoming, helping to re-train and rehabilitate rescue dogs.
