Naomi White, BSc (Hons), GODT, PPN, PPG

Advanced Senior Trainer Guildford, Surrey

Naomi has been part of the team since 2016 and has worked her way up to Advanced Senior Trainer.  She is a talented dog trainer and gets excellent results with all of the dogs she works with.  

She has a degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare, which she completed with a First. She also spent over 8 years fostering dogs for Canine Partners and gained experienced in their advanced training department.


Naomi is passionate about reward-based training and all of her training is done using treats, toys, games and lots of praise to ensure your dog enjoys their stay and learns effectively whilst maintaining high welfare standards.

She is able to offer training in a family environment and has a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever of her own called Rumer, who she regularly trains and competes in Competitive Obedience and Agility with.


Naomi only takes in 2 to 3 dogs for training at any one time, so is able to offer a more personal and exclusive training service.

Naomi regularly attends seminars and courses with some of the most world-renowned trainers and behaviourists to help with her continued professional development.  She is proud to be a Professional Member of the Pet Professional Network (PPN), an approved Instructor for the Guild of Dog Trainers (GODT), a member of the Pet Professional Guild for Force Free Dog Trainers and is a Dog Training College Approved Instructor


In her spare time she writes a blog, offering advice for dog owners and covering a range of training and behaviour issues
